Edson Marion, CEO of Merlin Distributor said about this reseller event: "We have had a new success in this 2nd Canon Virtual Pro Reseller Meeting, where we have been able to discuss and know all the news that Canon has for this 2023, so that we can develop the market with our business partners together with Canon, with the commitment of always Merlin Distributor for its partners throughout the region, with immediate availability always of inventory, fast delivery, excellent benefits and the best sales support."
The presentations were given by Yuri Nieto, Sales Executive Professional Products of Canon do Brasil, who began by thanking the extensive number of participants and business partners of Canon throughout the region, saying: "Basically we have the products for all types of professionals in our industry, for all types of production, we have a model that is more designed for the videomaker, for the social, religious event, we also have models designed in a complete part for TV transmission, for all broadcasters, and we also have our line of cinema products and live productions, products for all areas of our market."
Starting talking about our camcorders, such as our two models XA70/75 and the XA60/65, whose big difference between the 2 is the compression they use, that the 65 really has a type of compression where the files are better but despite that they are a little heavier, has a 1 "sensor and of course record in 4K and have 30 times in full HD, and also has to work with SD card X, , the interface between the camera and a computer already have it integrated for free, you do not have to pay for the update between the 50/55, and the 60/65 has a half-inch sensor that is also basically what we had in the 40/45, while the size is exactly the same in the 60/65 as in the 40/45 and in the 70/75 the same size of 50/55.
"We can carry out tests and demonstrations here in São Paulo, we have cameras, it is easier, correct and obviously, as I said, count on my presence in the tests and demonstrations they need, where the customer in this way ends up having more confidence with the manufacturer". Canon executive assured
Yuri Henrique Nieto went on to say: "Now I'm going to talk about the HF-G70, which talking about costs, replaces the XA 11, the screen size is compact, it has a microphone input for 2 and leaving the chain has the same USB Type-C interface, so you can transform the G-70 into a webcam in many appointments and it is a very good value for money camera without a doubt, being a good substitute for the XA 11, it has 4K recording, 2 card slots and has possibilities to record in fast-slow motion until recording at intervals, also an important difference in addition to the XLR audio runs higher than the 60/65 being able to be ideal for productions in churches or corporate, being able to also make live podcasts, Remarking in the case of optics, a difference with our competitors, without a doubt, who are not a market leader in optics, so all this part of sensor lenses and others, being awarded worldwide this technological part of lenses with sensor more profitable, having a cost-benefit on all. "
Nieto remarked to the resellers of the region that: "We have stocks of these products, talk to our mega distributor Merlin, and in this way have this product to be able to offer it to your customers. It is a line very capable of positioning itself, we already have here for example the G70 in São Paulo and it enchants, its sales do not stop, many productions are being made with it, since it is very important the point that it is certified by Netflix and that already says a lot. "
