About Canon Camera

Canon is a Japanese electronics corporation which was founded in 1937. The company is responsible for designing and producing Japan's first ever 35mm camera with a focal plane based shutter. Since then, the brand has become synonymous with photographic equipment. So much so, that in 1947 the company changed its name to Canon Camera Co. Inc. before abbreviating it to Canon Inc in 1969. However, Canon also supply printers, digital copiers, scanners, camcorders, computers, even x-ray devices. Other break-through photography products from the brand include the first zoom lens for television broadcasting in 1958, and the 'Canon 7' in 1961, which was the first Rangefinder camera. By 1965 the first single lens reflex (SLR) camera, the 'Canon Pelix', was available to all photography enthusiasts. In 1992 we saw the first ever camera with eye-controlled auto focus (AF) from Canon. Today, Canon are still known for their expertise in photography, particularly their digital SLR (DSLR) cameras. Models such as the 'EOS Rebel TSi (600D)', boasting 18 mega pixel (MP) imagery, and the 'Canon 5D' are proving popular. Canon camera lenses come in different styles for different environments. For example, the '50mm F/1.8 II Standard Auto Focus Lens + 52mm UV filter' is perfect for close-up shots with up to 18' focus. The 'EF 50mm f/1.4 USM' lens is more suited to bright, sunny scenes with its two high-refraction glass lens elements to minimise flare.
