From 23 to 26 September, Canon will present its various product worlds at PHOTOPIA in Hamburg. This will be complemented by various lectures by photographers, filmmakers and experts from the industry. Canon Ambassadors such as Lorenz Holder or Alexander Hassenstein will have their say at the live event Creative Content Conference, among others, in order to pass on their knowledge to the audience.
Canon will present its complete product portfolio to Photopia visitors on 600 square metres, divided into various themed areas. The Canon Experience Area features SLR and mirrorless cameras, a wide range of lenses and imaging solutions for small and large format (photo) prints. From Expert Bars, where product experts will be available for professional advice, to various photo spots where Canon equipment can be tried out, all fans of photography will get their money's worth.
The absolute product highlight is the EOS R3, which will be available for visitors to touch and try on the Canon stand for the first time after its official launch at PHOTOPIA.
The Canon Academy Photowalks will take place daily from 23-26 September at 11:00 and 15:00 with a maximum of 15 people. Starting point is the Canon Academy Info - Container in front of the Messe Hamburg, main entrance. The photowalks last approx. 90 minutes.

The Canon trainers will be on hand to offer tips and tricks and will also have a wide range of Canon products for participants to test during the walks.
In addition, three sessions a day will be held at Stand 116 in Hall A4 on the subject of vlogging and the equipment that goes with it. Registration will take place on site.
