A few dayz ago I read an article about Canon concentrating/moving heavy into the video surveillance market. I doubt they are standing still, never have, the digital camera consumer end of their business is only a portion of the production.
There is no "if they pull this off soon" problem that Canon is facing. That's just ego thinking a few that continue to scream, yell and whine about DR; sorry you are little fish in a big ocean of other happy buyers/consumers.
Canon as stated applies 'innovative and practical' methodology for it's consumer based ventures. If I'm not missing anything, that translates to a slow steady 'trickle' of tech to the masses and does not sound like a cutting edge tech leader...not at the consumer level.
Higher res, wider DR, faster image processing, that cutting edge, bleeding edge tech is 'dark' development probably already in use by DOD and is in the hands of other security related users. Our consumer cameras are not the worrisome bit, it's our dollars/wallets, the worldwide economies that require balance, we as a world need security and that is the effort at the top, it doesn't just include our consumer level of 'picture taking'.
There be spies about, corporate, government, they've bigger wallets, they get first dibs. We get the next bit of 'WOW' tech when they are done with it...ready for us to know about it and not smart enough to understand it's consequences.
