    This November 2012 press release announced Canon's sponsorship involvement with the Grand Prix Final, Four Continents, Junior Worlds and Worlds for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons: http://www.canon.com/news/2012/nov21e.html

    Thanks to the "Daisuke Takahashi - New Interview" thread, I discovered that Canon has an entire website dedicated to figure skating (in Japanese): http://web.canon.jp/event/skating/index.html

    Other interviews: Kevin Reynolds and Gracie Gold at 2013 Four Continents, Patrick Chan, Akiko Suzuki, Takeshi Honda, and Yuzuru Hanyu (after he won 2012 NHK Trophy).

    There are also photo galleries by event, interviews with Japanese sports photographers, and more.
