MELVILLE, N.Y. -- May 29, 2014

Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has kicked off its
Canon In Action Tour, an educational roadshow ideal for advanced amateur DSLR
users and filmmaking enthusiasts. The tour includes live-learning seminars and
workshops in several major U.S. cities now through November 23, 2014.

Tour attendees will have the opportunity to take part in an in-depth Imaging
Essentials Saturday seminar, and/or intensive Sunday training workshops for a
nominal fee. The classes are taught by renowned professional image makers Jack
Reznicki, Jim DiVitale and Amina Moreau. Reznicki and DiVitale are full-time
professional photographers and members of Canon’s acclaimed Explorers of Light
program, and Moreau is the co-founder of the Emmy® award-winning Stillmotion
production company.

Each Saturday seminar covers still-imaging topics ranging from lens selection
and composition, to understanding histograms and flash photography with
Canon’s versatile Speedlite system. Throughout the seminar, video recording
topics and techniques will be incorporated, simultaneously introducing DSLR
video to traditional still-image shooters, and providing insights for EOS
photographers who have already begun to include video in their imaging.

The Canon In Action Tour Sunday workshop offers participants a choice of two
all-day, hands-on workshops: Speedlite Intensive or Exploring DSLR Video.
Speedlite Intensive participants will be instructed on wireless flash
operation and using cost-effective light modifiers to create
professional-quality images with depth, dimension and detail. In the Exploring
DSLR workshop, attendees will learn DSLR video shooting techniques, discuss
the application of various in-camera video settings and learn how to apply the
concept of visual story-telling to transform their finished video. With
attendance limited to 20 people per workshop to maximize hands-on
opportunities, both Sunday workshops present participants with a wealth of
opportunities to learn in-depth techniques and develop their craft.

Canon technical representatives will be on-hand at all seminars and workshops
to demo equipment and answer questions on Canon products. A full schedule of
cities and dates for the Canon In Action tour is available at:
