August 2012

Canon has announced its activities for the Visa pour I’Image 2012 international festival of photojournalism (1-16 September) in Perpignan, France, including a huge showcase of its professional imaging products and an impressive presentation programme.

As principal sponsor of the 24th Visa pour l'Image Canon will be running a series of events at the festival, including presentations by leading photo agencies, Canon Ambassadors, and industry experts. For the second year running the Canon programme of presentations will include a series of four ‘CPN Live’ on-stage interviews with top photographers and photo editors. Adobe will also be presenting on workflow and its stills and video editing software. See below for further details of the presentation programme.

The Canon Space: from input to output

In the Canon Space in the Palais des Congrès venue, in central Perpignan, visitors will be able to see the latest range of Canon products and solutions, from image capture through to printing, including:

  • An expanded Canon Professional Services (CPS) area, where accredited photographers can be loaned the latest EOS bodies, lenses and accessories, or have their equipment checked and cleaned free of charge.
  • A photo space displaying the very latest range of groundbreaking professional EOS DSLRs, EF lenses, EOS System accessories, and the
 PowerShot G-series of digital compact cameras.

The EOS-1D X DSLR will be amongst the wide range of Canon professional imaging products being showcased in the Canon Space at Visa pour l’Image 2012.

  • A ‘print-on-demand’ area, where visitors can discover and try the latest models from Canon’s PIXMA range of printers and print their photos.
  • A professional photo studio where Canon’s complete input-through-output solution will be shown in action, with captured images, by photographer Rémy Cortin, using EOS System products being printed on PIXMA Pro and large-format ImagePROGRAF printers.
  • A stunning photo exhibition displaying the superb work of Canon Ambassadors, including Brent Stirton (Reportage by Getty Images), Paolo Pellegrin (Magnum Photos), Gary Knight (VII), Ziv Koren (Polaris Images), and Michael ‘Nick’ Nichols (National Geographic).
  • A professional video area, featuring the latest Canon professional video products, including the new Cinema EOS System and Canon’s handheld X-series of professional video cameras.

In addition to all of the product showcases in the Canon Space, Anthony Holland Parkin, Director, Editorial Content at Getty Images, will be giving a series of free 20-minute portfolio reviews from 4 to 7 September between 14:00 and 18:00 (with a 20 minute break at 16:00). The sessions can be booked on a ‘first come-first served’ basis in the Canon Space.
