Beyond selling high-quality, user-friendly cameras that can help anyone photograph like a pro, Canon USA is dedicated to helping families capture both the everyday and extraordinary moments in their children’s lives, making sure they never miss a moment. This family support is why we are so excited that Canon USA is the Presenting Sponsor at the New York Baby Show coming up on May 14 and 15 at Pier 92 in NYC!
The nation’s biggest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler—from top products, to trusted parenting experts, to lots of family fun and support. The New York Baby Show welcomes thousands of expectant and new parents from New York City, the Tri-State area, and beyond!

Naturally, we are thrilled that Canon USA is the Presenting Sponsor of the 2016 New York Baby Show. What’s the company’s big message for expectant and new families?
New parents will take a lot of photos of their baby’s firsts, and a majority currently rely on their smartphones for capturing all of the milestone moments–from pregnancy to first steps and birthdays. We want these parents to know that their precious memories should be given the quality they deserve, and not miss a single moment because a phone call or text message came in right before getting that perfect shot. You only get one chance to capture your child’s every first, so make sure to bring your Canon camera so that you don’t have any regrets later on.
Are there particular Canon cameras, and other products, that are recommended for new families? Or does that really depend on a buyers’ goals and budget?
Choosing the right camera is definitely a personal choice based on experience level and usage, but we do have one recommendation for families who want to instantaneously share with their families and friends through social media: The Canon EOS Rebel T6i DSLR camera, which features built-in Wi-Fi® and NFC™ capabilities for easy social sharing as well as Full HD Video to document your family’s life. The EOS Rebel T6i also has high-speed continuous shooting, which means that it has the speed and performance to get every smile, giggle, and step.
What is your “Baby Steps” program all about?
The Baby Steps program is about making sure parents and parents-to-be capture all of the life changing stages from pregnancy to the toddler years. For each step of a child’s growth, we’ve developed photography tips and tricks to make it easy for parents to take high quality photos and Full HD video they can share and have for generations. We don’t want parents to ever regret not capturing the ordinary or extraordinary.
What can families expect from Canon at the New York Baby Show? We know you’re cooking up plans that are fun and educational. But what might that look like? Some hints?
We’ll have fun interactive activities for the entire family. There will be a camera touch and try area where parents can test out their skills and have one-on-one guidance on capturing that once in a lifetime moment. There will also be a Pregnancy Portrait Studio where expecting moms can have a professional photographer snap and print a baby bump (or even a family) photo. The team from Janelle Brooke Photography will also be hosting two photography seminars to lead new and expecting parents through our Baby Steps lessons for each stage of their child’s life.
