Canon Japan is teasing the launch of a new product next week, promising "new possibilities for vlogs" – suggesting that a new vlogging-oriented camera is about to be revealed on Thursday, May 11.

It's worth noting that vlogging cameras – as nebulous a category as it is – is the only segment of the market that has shown serious growth in the past couple of years. And with rivals releasing cameras to capitalize on this interest, such as the recent Sony ZV-E1, it seems that Canon is also about to jump into the fray.
