Canon cuts prices across digital imaging range
Canon’s business was affected by the Japanese earthquake on March 11 but supply levels have now returned to normal and the company is now investing in these programs to stimulate the market even further.
“The passion for digital imaging continues in Australia and there’s never been a better time to buy digital imaging technology with the great value available in local retailers,” said Jason McLean, Director – Canon Consumer Imaging, Canon Australia.
“We’re taking and sharing more images than ever before and we’re seeing a continuing consumer focus on enhancing the lifestyle experience through upgrades in quality and advanced functionality.”
Apart from the price cuts Canon has three main campaigns for the remainder of the year.
Canon Tru-Capture is all about compact digital cameras and how the technology can help users capture life-like images at the press of a button even in low light situations.
Digital SLR (single lens reflex) cameras on the rise with many customers inspired to get creative and invest more into their photography. The World of Eos will help users increase their skills with video tutorials and creative challenges.
This will showcase what’s possible with the PIXMA inkjet printer range including high print quality, creative media options like photo stickers and shirt transfers and online resources and software to get great results.
There are more than 95 price repositions which took effect on August 1.
“With more than 95 Recommended Retail Price repositions taking effect this month, Australian consumers can feel confident of receiving great value for money in any of our authorised local retailers,” continued McLean.
“Anyone considering upgrading their imaging technology should check out their retailer and see for themselves the value that’s on offer.”
