Cansonic... Yes, its true!

So I also found these guys at CES. If you can't choose between Canon or Panasonic, then stop your internal torture from going further. Cause now we have Cansonic!

Ummm....

True.. but like all things from China they first copy, then they start to become more innovative and design their own stuff eventually..

Well, you know that protective plastic wrap that you have to remove off some electronics when you first buy them? Like the one they put on LCDs?

Well, they put that plastic on the camera lenses!!! Mostly all their show models had the plastic still on the LCD and the lens itself.

Really, the lens?!?!

I mean come on... its superior Cansonic optics! :)

The Japanese can probably live down product names like "Nissan Cedric", "Lovegetty" and "Morinaga Lips", now that this one has come along.

"Palsonic" was also probably a bit of a close drift to an iconic product name but it has since found its niche.

They were there at CES last year as well. I still have those flyers
somewhere in the house. Nice to see that they have altered their
branding just a bit... the "o" was an exact copy of the slanted "o"
in Canon. I'll see if I can dig up that flyer.

Looks like they want a sales rep and a region agent .. thankfully only one of each.

Cheers.
