Banking on some tried and true emotional marketing techniques, Canon Japan may have reached an entirely new level of “cute,” creating the 30-second TV-spot above for the new Rebel SL1, or Kiss X7 in Japan. What do you think of Canon’s clever portrayal of capturing the decisive moment?
Both Northlight Images and Canon Rumors, arguably the top two resources for what’s what in the world of Canon’s release forecasts, have each received similar word from known sources reiterating a long-standing rumor that points to the camera maker’s presumable plans to release a high-megapixel DSLR – a shooter that would reportedly share the same exterior characteristics as the EOS-1D X/1D C.
Johnnie Behiri, a freelance cameraman for the British Broadcasting Company (BBC), was able to secure a pre-production version of the full-frame Canon 6D, resulting in the first sample footage publicly released shown above and below, much to the delight of eagerly-awaiting pixel-peepers.
