Canon Busts Out Jackie Chan Edition DSLR for the Chinese Market

Okay, so Polaroid partnered with Lady Gaga, and Sony has teamed up with Taylor Swift. How about Canon? Well, they’ve just gone a step further by releasing a Jackie Chan-branded version of the Canon Rebel T2i (AKA 550D).

The “EOS 550D Jackie Chan Eye of Dragon” special edition kit comes with an EF-S 18-135mm lens, camera case, strap, and special photo album. Everything except the lens is branded with Jackie’s logo. Only 2010 of these kits will be made, and each costs a whopping ¥10,000, or roughly $1465.

Any guesses as to which random celebrity Nikon is planning to team up with?

    Nikon should go with Tiger Woods :)

  • Tim Fears

    Nikon already has Ashton Kutcher.

  • Bergur

    …I'm guessing the Dalai Lama…

  • paulo69minete

    Nikon: Chuck Norris!

  • RPG Master

    I didn't know Jackie Chan was into photography :P

  • QuBe

    If it's Justin Beiber, I will quit photography, set fire to my computer and become a mountain shepherd.

  • Andrey Serbovets

    It's great that photography equipment is adopting «signature» models. But I'd rather buy some Annie Leibovitz signature Canon 1Ds, than Jackie Chan Canon 550D. Not because it's 1Ds, but because this kind of collaboration seem more effective, as Leibovitz IS a RENOWNED PHOTOGRAPHER.

  • Michael Zhang

    And I'll become one of your sheep.

  • JessicaLum

    True! But will they get a DSLR spokesperson?

  • Rachel

    Actually, Ashton does that too! He's got his own Nikon DSLR site:

    Isn't the 550D the Rebel T2i? Not the TSi

  • Michael Zhang

    Oops. Thanks for catching that. It's now fixed.

  • sassifrassilassi

    Haha, I only caught it because I have the 500D!

  • Jenny

    ¥10,000?!? I'd say you're missing an extra “0” at the end if you want to be along the lines of the USD price. ¥10,000 is only about $100.

  • Michael Zhang

    Hmmmmm… It's Chinese Yuan, not Japanese Yen.

    They have the same symbols though. Not really sure how to differentiate them.

  • Jenny

    My bad then. :) I've been in Japan too long since I automatically read it the Japanese way.
