An interview of the Managing Director and Chief Executive with Masaya Maedahas been posted by the DPReview about the image Communication Products Operations at Canon. He touched a lot of subjects including – Why 7D Successor took so long time, …. the most interesting part interview was when Canon head confirmed anon PowerShot G7 X doesn’t use a Canon sensor and high resolution sensors are coming from Canon (possibly A FF camera to fight with Nikon D810 and A7R)
Below is a brief of the interview:-
Currently no Canon camera offers more than 22MP. Do your DSLR customers ask for higher resolution?
Maeda: Yes. We know that many of our customers need more resolution and this is under consideration. In the very near future you can expect us to show something in terms of mirrorless and also a higher resolution sensor.
