CanonCanon SD630 campaign and Tennis Star Maria Sharapova : Canon's newest campaign featuring tennis superstar Maria Sharapova and the PowerShot SD630 Digital Elph camera delivers style and best in class status for the market leader in digital cameras. As part of this campaign, a new commercial titled "Attraction" debuts today in conjunction with the French Open. The integrated campaign includes not only television, but also print, Internet, and retail components that reaffirm Canon's relationship with. Building off the success of last year's campaign and Maria's pop icon status, Canon shows consumers that whenever and wherever there are great picture taking moments, Canon digital cameras are there to capture them.

"This campaign once again proves that Maria and Canon are a perfect match." said Yukiaki Hashimoto, senior vice president and general manager of the consumer imaging group at Canon USA., Inc. "Attraction," created by New York based Denstu, follows the successful "Practice" commercial that debuted in 2005 and introduced Maria Sharapova as a Canon spokesperson. The latest spot, which was shot in various locations throughout Miami, FL, takes both PowerShot cameras and Sharapova off the court to further the brand's positioning of substance and style. In this execution, the PowerShot camera plays a larger role and once again captures a special picture taking moment, which Sharapova helped to create.

Doug Fidoten about Maria Sharapova
"Maria Sharapova has proven that she is a superstar on the court," said Doug Fidoten, President, Dentsu. "This campaign shows us a different side of Maria and brings out her shared attributes with Canon's PowerShot digital cameras, like style and power of attraction."
The new TV spot begins with Maria on the court practicing. As Sharapova leaves the court and hits the streets with her PowerShot SD630 digital camera in tow, she is trailed by an increasing number of tennis balls that will do whatever it takes to get as close as possible to the camera. Sharapova then walks into an apartment building, reemerges on a balcony and looks down to find hundreds of tennis balls taking the shape of a smiley face.

As she lifts the camera to capture this image, the smiley face smiles for the camera. Maria looks at this magical image in the LCD as a voiceover says, "Wherever PowerShot cameras go, great pictures follow." The ad closes with a product shot and Maria delivering the tagline she made famous last year, "Make Every Shot a PowerShot." "I am used to making my statements on the court," said Maria Sharapova. "Being a part of this Canon commercial was a lot of fun and enabled me to show a different side of myself. I think people will respond in the same enthusiastic way they did with the last commercial." A print ad shot by prominent Sports Illustrated photographer and Canon Explorer of Light Walter Iooss, will accompany the launch of "Attraction" and can be seen in various high-profile consumer magazines beginning in June.
