Canon held the Canon Experience 2019 lifestyle and business expo at the SM Mega Fashion Hall last weekend.

The three-day event featured workshops led by Canon photographers and content creators designed to make their valued Filipino customers experience the Canon advantage. Guests and visitors also enjoyed the interactive booths, special performances, and exclusive promos. Among the highlights were the launch and unveiling of their latest products during the press and dealer launch on the first day.

“We are kicking off the Canon Experience 2019 with the unveiling of not just one but six of Canon’s newest innovative products. From unveiling the world’s lightest DSLR, to Canon’s first instant camera printers, to our new and improved refillable ink tank system printers – the goal of this year’s Canon Experience Expo is to have our Filipino customers – end-users and businesses alike–see, feel, and live out our promise of nothing but delightful experiences with every Canon product,” said Mr. Benny Yu, Head of Consumer Imaging & Information Division at Canon Marketing (Philippines), Inc.

Launch of the Canon EOS 200D II

Headlining the expo was the launch of the much-awaited EOS 200D II, the world’s lightest digital SLR camera equipped with an APS-C size imaging sensor and a Vari-angle touch screen LCD monitor. Though similar in size to its predecessor, the new EOS 200D II weighs only 449g and comes in black and silver.

For beginners and mobile phone upgraders looking for the perfect entry level DSLR that offers advanced features, the Canon EOS 200D II is the one for you. This stylish and compact unit is powered by Canon’s latest DIGIC 8 imaging processor that allows for 4K video recording. It also has a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor, a wide ISO range of 100 to 25,600 (expandable to 51,200), and minimum AF luminance of EV-4, made possible with Dual Pixel AF technology.

With its Auto Lighting Optimizer, capturing gradations or rich hues comes easy while a continuous shooting rate of up to 5 FPS makes tracking fast-moving subjects simpler. Even in dim environments, every footage remains sharp with the Movie Digital IS, while the menu’s 4K Time-Lapse function makes recording time-lapse videos uncomplicated.

The EOS 200D II is now available at Canon’s authorized dealers nationwide for only P41,998 which comes with a FREE camera bag and additional 2 years warranty when enrolled via the Canon Red app.

New iNSPiC Instant Cameras

The Inspic [S] Camera Printer in Rose Gold

Two variants of Canon’s mini photo printer series were also launched, the iNSPiC [S] and iNSPiC [C]. These pocket-sized instant camera printers combine a compact mini printer with a digital camera capability.

The iNSPiC [S] is available in Pearl White, Matte Black, and Rose Gold, with an ultra-slim profile that packs in a powerful 8-megapixel fixed focus camera, so users can shoot and print instantly from just one device without the need for a separate camera and printer. Its built-in LED ring light circles the camera lens and activates a fill light for beautiful portrait shots. The iNSPiC [S] comes with a Micro SD slot that supports card capacities of up to 256GB.

The iNSPiC [C] series comes in Bubble Gum Pink, Bumble Bee Yellow, and Seaside Blue that will surely make a fashion statement at gatherings with friends and family, or simply stand out in the crowd. Its 5-megapixel camera and a selfie mirror next to the camera lens makes selfie-shooting easy, while a one-touch reprint button ensures no one leaves the party without receiving a photo print of that one precious moment.

The Inspic [C] Camera Printer in Bumble Bee Yellow

Canon’s iNSPiC Instant Cameras’ mini printers use ZINK Zero Ink™ Technology from ZINK™, a revolutionary dry-printing technology that enables printing in color without the use of ink cartridges. The smudge-proof and scratch-resistant glossy photo prints also have a peel-and-stick reverse side. Using the Canon Mini Print mobile app, users may easily print photos stored on smartphones or photo albums in social networking accounts.

The iNSPiC [S] and iNSPiC [C] are now available for only PHP 9,900* and PHP 7,900*, respectively.

Unveiling the new Canon PIXMA Ink Efficient G Series printers

Canon also expanded its PIXMA Ink Efficient G Series line-up with the unveiling of three new refillable ink tank system printers. With the popular integrated-in-body ink tank design, the printers combine a small footprint with automatic two-sided printing, large paper feeding capacity, and full network compatibility, making them ideal for offices with high print volume demands. The PIXMA Ink Efficient G series printers feature integrated refillable ink tanks to deliver a small footprint.

The versatile PIXMA Ink Efficient printers support Wired LAN and Wireless LAN, making them suitable for placement anywhere in the office. The printers also support Wireless Direct, allowing direct communication and printing from smartphones without the need for a wireless router.

The PIXMA G6070

The PIXMA G6070 All-in-One multifunction printer handles all printing, scanning, and copying jobs with ease. An Ethernet port and wireless connectivity ensures flexibility in placement anywhere in the office, while a 2-line LCD panel makes it easy to perform and confirm printer settings.

The PIXMA G5070

The PIXMA Ink Efficient G5070 on the other hand is a dedicated print-only workhorse. A 2-Line LCD panel adorns the front panel of the single function printer, similar to that on the G6070, and simplifies setup and provides device status information such as remaining ink levels at a glance.

The PIXMA GM2070

The PIXMA Monochrome GM2070 printer breaks new ground by being the first to recognize that even businesses that print mostly black-and-white documents may on occasion need to print in color. Fueled by a single refillable black ink tank, the printer’s unique design accepts a conventional color ink cartridge for occasional and small job prints. When the cartridge is removed, the printer snaps back into character as a no-nonsense, powerful single function monochrome printer that prints up to 8,300 documents off a single ink bottle refill.

Empowering Filipino Content Creators

Canon’s Content Creator Series continued on during the second and third days of the expo aiming at empowering not just today’s aspiring photographers but videographers as well.

Canon brand ambassadors Janella Salvador, Nicole Andersson, Arianne Bautista, Megan Young, Mikael Daez, and Andrei King facilitated workshops for video bloggers, social media influencers and enthusiasts, where they shared real-life experiences using Canon cameras as they go about their daily adventures.

Top lensmen Jilson Tiu, DJ Coki Meneses, and Emir Khan also gave talks and lectures to help Canon users maximize the potential and capabilities of their devices. A highlight of the content creator series was the presentation of renowned Canon EOS system guru Teoh Peng Kee who shared advanced photography techniques, including lessons on capturing fantastic images under extreme conditions like low light events and sub-zero temperatures.
