About Canon Cameras
Imaging technology has taken incredibly large strides over the last several decades, and Canon Inc. has kept pace all along. Based in Tokyo, Canon has been making quality cameras since it introduced the Kwanon, Japan's first 35 mm camera with a focal plane-based shutter. The camera's namesake, and the company's, originally, is the bhodissatva Kwan'on, associated with compassion and particularly revered among East Asian Buddhists. Canon, too, has proven itself worthy of reverence, with accolades including being one of Fortune Magazine's World's Most Admired Companies in 2013. If you're a photography enthusiast, you're probably already an admirer of Canon's contributions to the development of single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras, including the EOS 5, the world's first SLR camera with eye-controlled autofocus. These developments bridged into the digital age, with Canon's camera product line including everything from high-end professional digital SLR cameras to the adorable, pocket-sized ELPH. But Canon has also been at the cutting edge of other kinds of image-production: the company gave the world its first inkjet printer, and has been an innovator in digital copiers. And the list goes on: you can find the Canon logo on camcorders, steppers, and even medical equipment. So whether you're looking to make a home movie or develop your professional photography skills, whether you need a quality computer printer or office copier you know you can count on, Canon is one of the best choices you can make. And with the company's kyosei philosophy, you can rest assured that the maker behind your camera, printer, or copier is one that takes seriously its responsibility as a global corporation.
