Canon Expo 2007

Canon Hong Kong held a major exhibition at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre at the end of last month. It was mainly a demo of Canon current range imaging products including cameras, video cameras, lenses and printers. There was also on section displaying old and historical Canon cameras and a 3-D cinema showing a short 3-D movie shot with two high resolution Canon video cameras. Canon also took the opportunity to display 2 new prototype “L” lens, the 200mm f/2L IS USM and the 800mm f/5.6L IS USM. Both of these lenses were behind a glass showcase, purely for display only and not available for try out.

The 200mm f/2L IS USM will be a most desirable lens after the discontinuation of the old 200mm f/1.8L IS USM

Birders and sport shooters would love the new 800mm f/5.6 IS USM

This was the first time where users in Hong Kong could try out the new flagship 1Ds Mark III

A vintage Canon range finder film camera makes a strong contrast to the 1Ds Mark III

  1. Great shots Mr. Lim! Wow… the 200mm looks promising. I do love my 200 f/1.8L, so I can imagine the joy of new owners of the 2.0L. I wish I was there with you. Must have been a great show!

    And of course, how can there be a Canon show without the Canon God, right?

    Happy holidays!

  2. Exceptional Optical Superiority (EOS)

    Love the shots, and most shots in other galleries here. I particularly am drawn to the last one, which reminds me of my Canon QL/9 rangefinder (not as old as the one you shot) that’s sitting lonely on a shelf requiring cosmetic attention. Need to buff it up to shine. LOL.

    May I ask a “naive” question. I also Love the script font you used below each image. Could you lead me to the name of the font used.

    Thanks.

    Happy Christmas and Prosperous New Year.
