Canon’s image group leader, Masaya Maeda, has confirmed that the company is busy working on a smaller sized pro camera that will be competing against its mirrorless, interchangeable lens rivals. With the recent popularity of smaller sized cameras with interchangeable lenses, such as the Olympus PEN series and Sony NEX line, it’s no surprise to hear that Canon is making such a move, as the pressure must certainly be building. Whether these cameras will have a mirror or not is another issue, as he wouldn’t confirm whether Canon would stick to using the traditional mirror approach, or ditch the mirror entirely. Such a move is similar to what Nikon is doing, so it’ll be interesting to see what these two companies are capable of churning out in the near future.
