Canon to buy 25% of Hitachi LCD panels division

From http://www.nytimes.com/reuters/techn...ss&oref=slogin

"...Canon Inc. said it would pay $403 million for a quarter stake in Hitachi Ltd's LCD panel business to get its own supply of parts for its cameras and copiers.
Canon and Matsushita Electric Industrial agreed in December to buy 24.9 percent each of the LCD panel maker, Hitachi Displays, now wholly owned by Hitachi."

Perhaps this will lead to a cure for one of the biggest complaints of Canon camera owners, the poor LCD screens and viewfinders. Very interesting indeed.

Canon may want to wait until that situation is settled.
