"I have personally been impressed with Canon's proactive, prompt and
thoughtful support for professionals," said Tom Hauck, freelance sports
photographer who photographed the game and has shot over 350
professional football games in his career. "Before the game, I sent all
my gear to Canon's Irvine ervice facility to be cleaned and checked and
I got everything back in about two days. And at the game, Canon's CPS
staff was on site providing information on how to better understand and
get the most from my equipment as well as peace of mind."
The sidelines of the big game were lined with photographers using Canon
EOS Digital SLR cameras and iconic white lenses. Canon is honored that
more than 75 percent* of professional photographers covering
the game utilized Canon DSLR cameras and EF lenses to capture and share
the memorable moments of the gridiron matchup. Canon broadcast lenses
were also used extensively to deliver the game to more than 111 million
