4K Multipurpose Camera and Filesharing Cross Media Station Prototypes Revealed at Canon EXPO 2010 in Paris (+Video)
Paris is famous for its historical and cultural sights, however once everyone five years, there comes the opportunity to look into the future. Canon EXPO 2010 Paris is open October 12-14, and offers a peek into the technology of the future. With various zones set-up to highlight the newest innovations, two appealing prototypes have set the place abuzz.
Canon’s 4K “Multipurpose” concept camera is sure to change the way we think about image and video. It is capable of capturing video and still images at 60 frames per second with 4K resolution. 4K cinema production is currently prohibitively costly for the average consumer, but with concepts like this being developed, we can all start getting pumped to try our hands at 4K video and photography.
After adding yet another awesome gadget to one’s armoury, dealing with charging batteries and handling data becomes more and more daunting. Well, Canon has a clever solution up their sleeve for helping us to maintain our toys; the Filesharing Cross Media Station. This concept device is about the size of a simple consumer scanner. By setting a camera on top of it, the batteries can be charged while the data is being uploaded to your computer. The station eliminates the need for dealing with battery chargers, cords, cables, and memory sticks, and up to three cameras can be serviced at the same time. Canon’s Cross Media Station will demand a bit of desk real estate, however the drawer space and the headaches saved from dealing with piles of cables make this device an appealing addition to any workspace.
