Canon’s ‘something BIG’ is… a photography competition. Oh well.

Many months ago I came across an article interviewing Canon execs in the financial press – Bloomberg?, Financial Times?, I don’t recall, but at one point they emphasized thin profits in photography and a strategic turn to the profitable and underserved security camera market…
In other words, Canon is abandoning photographers for warehouse owners and anti-terrorist subway monitoring. OK- their corp, their game.
To my assessment it correlates with the glaring lack of advanced, competitive product. I call it Sony time!
