Want to know what it’s like to actually attend this once-every-five-years event? Follow Hugh Brownstone as he wends his way through what he calls the single most impressive display of imaging technology by a single vendor he’s every seen – and is startled by some of what he sees.
I’ll let the video speak for itself – and encourage you to go through it in its entirety.
This is not your father’s Canon Camera company.
Impressive on many levels, Canon is a unique reflection of the world in which we live circa 2015.
Canon Expo 2015 Part 2: The Pavilions
planet5D writer Hugh Brownstone heads over to the Jacob Javits Center in New York City to see the once-every-five-years Canon Expo. Here's a taste of what it's like inside.
In a word: incredible.
And scary (see especially Canon University).
We hope that humanity has the integrity and morality to use the kind of tech we saw properly.
