Canon U.S.A., Inc. Key Developments

Canon U.S.A., Inc. Announces Canon Cr-2 AF Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera

Canon U.S.A., Inc. has announced the Canon CR-2 AF Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera, a new camera that delivers stunning, high-resolution, 20.2 megapixel images the high resolution available in any digital retinal camera with extraordinary detail, contrast, color fidelity and speed. Enhanced from the previous CR-2 Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera, the new CR-2 AF features contrast enhancement technology never-before offered to correct for reduced contrast. The CR-2 AF features low-flash intensity to minimize pupil constriction and shorten the time needed to take multiple pictures. Additionally, the CR-2 AF’s light weight and compact design make it an ideal diagnostic companion for offices where space is at a premium or where telemedicine portability is required. With an optical pathway entirely manufactured by Canon and virtually free of aberration, the CR-2 AF’s digital filter set is able to provide precise and consistent views of the various layers of the retina. Delivering stunning, high-resolution, 20.2 megapixel images, the CR-2 AF Digital Retinal Camera provides outstanding image quality with extraordinary detail, contrast, color fidelity and speed. Enhanced from the CR-2 Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera, the new CR-2 AF is equipped with the newly added contrast enhancement feature for even greater photographic quality. The camera’s new contrast enhancement feature provides increased image clarity from previous models by emphasizing the difference in ‘redness’ and ‘brightness’ of blood vessel structures relative to their surroundings. By expanding the range of brightness values in a fundus image the reader is able to better discriminate minute retinal details between areas initially having small differences in density. Building upon the success of the CR-2, the CR-2 AF is equipped with features to assist the user in easily capturing high-quality images. Image Error Detection automatically confirms both correct alignment and focus while the Quick Preview mode allows users to preview their images directly on the dedicated EOS camera immediately after the image is captured. The camera has several automatic features for ease of use, including: Auto-Focus with Manual Alignment Override automatically focuses the eye by partially depressing the joystick, or easily switches to manual focus with a twist of the focus ring. Auto-Exposure automatically measures the volume of infrared light at the retina and adjusts the flash intensity. Auto-Capture automatically captures the image once the eye is properly focused. Auto-Fundus automatically switches from the external eye to retinal observation mode when the eye is properly aligned. The CR-2 AF Digital Retinal Camera is now available directly from Canon as well as through authorized Canon U.S.A. dealers.

Canon Unveils New Compact Binoculars Featuring Improved Image Stabilization and Reduced Power Consumption

Canon U.S.A. Inc. announced two new additions to its portfolio of Canon Image Stabilizer binoculars with the 10x30 IS II and 12x36 IS III. While all current Canon binoculars are equipped with an image stabilization (IS) function, new to these binocular models is a microcomputer (similar to Canon's EF lenses) for improved IS performance and stable high-magnification viewing. The upgraded IS technology allows for greater viewing comfort, while at the same time eliminating the need for a tripod and making these new binoculars ideal accessories for travelers, nature observers and sports enthusiasts. In addition to improving the IS performance, the latest electronic circuits were introduced, significantly reducing power consumption over previous models. The design results in a more energy efficient operation where batteries now have a continuous usage time that is approximately two times longer than previous models. At temperatures of 25 degrees Celsius/77 degrees Fahrenheit, both new models of binoculars provide up to nine hours of continuous stabilization on a pair of AA-size alkaline batteries, compared to four hours on the previous models. Users also have the flexibility to use rechargeable NiMH batteries for more convenience. The 10x30 IS II's 10x high-magnification ratio is combined with a 30mm/1.18-inch effective diameter objective lens for great light-gathering ability with high resolution and contrast. Birdwatchers, specifically, will benefit from the new, less glossy front cover of this model, whose design was refined to provide a better anti-reflective surface. Additionally, their compact size and lightweight (127x150x70mm, approx. 1.3 lb.) help make them easy to use, carry and store. The 12x36 IS III model has a 12x high magnification ratio. Its 36mm/1.42-inch effective diameter objective lens helps provide clear and bright, high-resolution images. These new binoculars are also compact and lightweight (5 x 6.8 x 2.7 inches WHD, approx. 1.5 lb.) considering their higher magnification. Both models feature Porro II Prisms which enhance image resolution and help to minimize the loss of light. Long eye relief of 14.5mm/0.57-inches helps ensure viewing comfort, especially for those with glasses. The doublet field-flattener on both models produces sharp, virtually distortion-free images from edge-to-edge. The hardware includes a low-reflective exterior.

Canon U.S.A., Inc. Announces imageFORMULA DR-C240 Office Document Scanner

Canon U.S.A., Inc. introduced the imageFORMULA DR-C240 office document scanner, a dynamic new document scanner designed to support the image capture of different-sized documents, including passports. With its ability to easily scan and extract text from documents, this model is ideal for businesses seeking to facilitate check-in and identity verification within various markets including government, passenger transportation, accommodation services, rental and leasing services, insurance, financial and legal services. The new imageFORMULA DR-C240 scanner can be used to integrate information into digital workflows for process automation and information distribution while helping to increase collaboration among individuals or workgroups. The DR-C240 scanner is capable of scanning up to 45 pages-per-minute (ppm), with both sides of an item in a single pass, in color or black & white1. Able to hold up to 60 sheets, in addition to passports, the scanner can handle a variety of document types including thick, thin, long, or oversized documents, plastic or embossed cards. In addition, the DR-C240 comes equipped with double-feed detection functions and a one-touch release button to allow scanning to resume when a double feed is detected for a seamless and more efficient scanning experience. The imageFORMULA DR-C240 office document scanner is available now through Canon authorized channels for a manufacturers suggested retail price (MSRP) of $795.
