Canon concept camera imageCanon has today stated that it has not announced plans to develop its ‘concept’ camera, revealed in Paris earlier this week.

Canon said the camera would be capable of shooting still images at a frame rate exceeding 60 shots per second.

The unnamed model was described as being equipped with a new 8-million-pixel CMOS sensor and capable of shooting video with a resolution four times greater than Full HD.

The ?compact and lightweight? camera would feature a fixed 20x f/1.8 optical zoom, designed to deliver the 35mm viewing angle equivalent of a 24-480mm lens.

The zoom would be powered by a ?new, fully electronically-controlled, lens drive system?, according to a statement released by Canon on Tuesday.

A spokesperson for Canon UK today told us that the camera on show was merely a ‘concept’, intended to illustrate what could be achieved in the future.
