Larry Jordan: We’re back and I’m talking with Tim Smith. He is the Senior Adviser for Film and Television Production of Canon USA. Hello, Tim. Welcome.

Tim Smith: Nice seeing you again, Larry.

Larry Jordan: Tell me what Canon USA, from your perspective from film and TV, what’s Canon USA is doing today?

Tim Smith: This year is lenses.

Larry Jordan: Really?

Tim Smith: Which is a logical choice. Last year was about large format sensors, new cameras. Now, we need lenses to put on those large format, large sensors. And this year, we’re producing a line of Sumire lenses. They’re a line of cinema prime lenses that we’re introducing here called Sumire. It’s a Japanese word for a flower, and it’s a unique design, a departure for Canon because like a flower, these lenses change their look and become more beautiful as you get them closer to wide open. It’s very unique.
