Walking into Image Square, consumers are able to take their pick of Canon’s various products including DSLR, digital cameras, lenses and printers. Well-trained technical staff are also on hand to advise and support our consumers with their queries,” stated Ho at the launch.

The opening of Image Square in the northern island also follows from Canon’s rebranding exercise. Effective October 2013, all Canon Concept Lifestyle Stores have been renamed Image Square.

Additionally, it also gives them the assurance that we do continuously strive in delighting them always,” Ho added.
