Canon asking questions about Mirrorless.


Click on image to enlarge!

Canon customers received a survey asking questions about mirrorless cameras! The survey is available here but you need an access code: http://advisorypanel.vovici.net/se.htm. Anyway, the guys over at Canonrumors managed to get some screenshots of the survey.

What will be the result of the poll? The results will be kept secret by Canon Managers but the result will be one only. It is inevitable, Canon will make a mirrorless camera. Don’t be shy Canon! :)
