Canon renews sponsorship agreement of World Press Photo

Yesterday, at the opening of the World Press Photo exhibition in London, Canon signed a three-year renewal of its worldwide partnership with the World Press Photo Foundation. The new contract also marks the 20th anniversary for the two organizations working together to empower photographers to tell a story.

World Press Photo, an independent, non-profit organization, was founded in 1955 and is universally recognized as the world's leading international contest for photojournalists, setting the standard for the profession. Attracting thousands of professional photographers, the competition offers a unique and often icon-setting view into global issues and events.

Canon has been a worldwide partner of World Press Photo since 1992 and while the market in which visual journalists show their stories continues to evolve, the power of image is as important and influential now as it has always been.

EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM and EF 35mm f/2 IS USM

Canon has introduced two new lenses to its range:

The optical system includes two aspherical elements alongside two Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) lenses, each with optimised Super Spectra Coatings to minimise chromatic aberration, colour blurring and flare. A nine-blade circular iris delivers beautiful out-of-focus highlights (bokeh).

The EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM also features a newly designed IS system. The advanced optical IS offers a 4-stop light advantage, while Hybrid IS effectively compensates for angular and shift shake during macro shooting …
