We recently got this press release that Canon South Africa will be holding their own Canon Expo in Sandton come December 2011. It will be a 3 day event that can showcase their products and services best apparently. There is only one concern with this, it means that Canon SA wont be involved in any other expos or shows. That means no Canon at this years Photo & Film Expo… odd.
