LAS VEGAS -- March 7, 2013

Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will showcase its
breadth of input to output imaging devices, including the Canon DreamLabo 5000
production inkjet printer, at the 2013 Wedding & Portrait Photographer
International (WPPI) Convention in Las Vegas. On display at the Canon booth
(#401) will be a variety of the Company’s full portfolio of image capture,
display and printing equipment, which provide wedding service professionals
with the tools they need to help capture beautiful images and moments and
deliver top-quality albums and video for clients to cherish and share with
friends and family.

“What It Takes To…” will be the theme embodying the Company’s exhibit of
extensive imaging solutions for wedding photographers and videographers. There
will also be an educational Speedlight demonstration studio, an education and
service pavilion, and a REALiS Theatre that will display dynamic footage and
photos captured with Canon devices. Attendees will have the opportunity to
“touch and try” some of Canon’s latest imaging products in the EOS Digital SLR
camera, Cinema EOS camera, Professional Video camera, PIXMA PRO professional
inkjet and imagePROGRAF large format printers.

Canon will include live presentations and photo shoots happening on the Canon
Live Learning stage throughout the tradeshow where some of Canon’s Explorers
of Light will speak to how they are leveraging the quality and reliability of
Canon imaging equipment to hone their craft and deliver stunning results.

Exceptional Input Solutions

With innovative features and first-class image-capture capabilities, the Canon
EOS system of digital SLR cameras aid in a professional photographer’s ability
to capture the joy and happiness of a couple’s wedding or the smile and glow
of a family in studio. On display will be a diverse selection of EOS camera
models, including the EOS-1D X digital SLR camera, which features Canon’s
61-Point High Density Reticular Autofocus (AF) System, a high-performance
18.0-megapixel full-frame CMOS image sensor, full HD video recording,
continuous shooting speed of up to 12 frames-per-second (fps), and Dual DIGIC
5+ Image Processors. Also on display will be the Canon EOS 5D Mark III digital
SLR camera, featuring a 22.3-megapixel full-frame Canon CMOS sensor, a DIGIC
5+ Imaging Processor, the same 61-point High Density Reticular Autofocus (AF)
sensor as in the EOS-1D X and up to six frames-per-second continuous shooting
speed. The EOS 6D digital SLR camera, the newest member of the EOS lineup, and
the EOS 7D digital SLR camera, which employs an 18.0-megapixel APS-C size CMOS
sensor and Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors. All current Canon DSLR cameras
include advanced video capabilities helping enhance the capabilities of both
wedding photographers and videographers.

Visitors to the Canon booth will also be able to touch and try a broad range
of Canon EF lenses, precision designed and manufactured for use with Canon EOS
digital SLR cameras. Canon’s EF-series provides one of the world’s most
comprehensive selections of interchangeable autofocus lenses including
wide-angle telephoto, macro, fisheye, tilt/shift and many other models. Other
items on display will include Canon Speedlites - advanced, versatile portable
electronic flash units fully integrated with the exposure and autofocus
systems of Canon EOS cameras.

High-Quality Output Devices

Capturing those perfect moments as a couple enters the union of marriage is
essential, but the task doesn’t stop there, professionals must also deliver
high-quality, color-crisp photo prints as well and Canon is there to assist.
The Canon DreamLabo 5000 production inkjet printer helps photographers deliver
a combination of outstanding image quality, detailed, crisp text quality, and
productivity with its one pass, double-sided printing. Canon's FINE
(Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) print-head technology helps
make it possible to deliver high-speed printing of premium quality photos and
supports a variety of value-added output capabilities. These capabilities
include photo merchandise and high-end POD (Print on Demand) items, such as
wedding albums, photo calendars, photo cards and single prints. The system
realizes accurate color representation and provides an alternative to
traditional silver halide processing technology.

Attendees of the Canon Kickoff Party on Sunday will have the opportunity to
have their photo taken with a Canon EOS 7D digital SLR camera. This
complimentary photo will be printed and available for pickup at Canon’s
DreamLabo booth.

Also on display will be some of the imagePROGRAF and PIXMA PRO-series of
printers. The  24-inch, 12-color imagePROGRAF iPF6450 large-format printer,
and the 44-inch, 12-color imagePROGRAF iPF8400 large-format printer, are both
equipped with LUCIA EX pigment ink set, an enhanced multi-sensor and advanced
printing technology to help photographers achieve extraordinary quality and
enhanced color range in their printed photography. As the flagship of the
professional inkjet printer lineup, the PIXMA PRO-1 printer features a
12-color LUCIA Pigment ink system that expands the color gamut with improved
saturation of colors and darker, deeper blacks. Further rounding out the
family of PIXMA PRO-series models are the 10-ink system PIXMA PRO-10 printer
and 8-ink system PIXMA PRO-100 printer models. Each is built with the quality
of output and the design of the PIXMA PRO-1 printer in mind to help ensure
what was captured through a camera lens is reproduced exactly as it was
envisioned.

Those looking for a full digital cinematography system will have the
opportunity to examine the Canon Cinema EOS line of cameras and Cinema zoom
and prime lenses. The Canon EOS C100 camera is designed to enable independent
operation, and features a Super 35mm CMOS image sensor, DIGIC DV III Image
Processor and AVCHD recording.

For wedding and event videographers, the XF305 and the compact, highly
portable XF105 professional camcorders will be on display as well. Both
deliver Full HD video utilizing Canon-designed and developed native 1920 x
1080 CMOS image sensors, professional XLR microphone inputs, and Canon’s
proprietary MPEG-2 4:2:2 50Mbps XF Codec to help achieve exceptional HD image
quality and color detail.

Wedding and portrait photographers as well as event videographers seeking a
high-quality video projection solution that helps deliver a seamless, detailed
high-resolution, high-brightness, color-accurate still or motion image display
have many choices among Canon’s REALiS line of Multimedia LCOS Projectors.
Utilizing Genuine Canon projection lenses and next-generation LCOS (Liquid
Crystal on Silicon) projection-display technology enhanced by Canon’s
proprietary AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) optical engine, REALiS
projectors include full-featured portable and installation models in a variety
of resolutions and brightness ratings.
