Canon News & Reviews
Dating from the 1930s in Japan, Canon is one of the main pillars of photographic manufacturing and it remains the market leader for interchangeable lens cameras.
It offers a comprehensive range of digital cameras from simple point-and-shoot compact models to fully specified professional-level SLRs and an extensive range of lenses and camera accessories.
Canon’s current DSLR range uses the EF (full-frame) and EF-S (APS-C) lens mounts, with the former dating from March 1987. In July 2012 Canon announced its first mirrorless system camera, the Canon EOS M, which also debuted a new lens mount called EF-M.
While Canon was relatively slow to the mirrorless market it has been swift to embrace technology such as touch-control and wireless connectivity.
