Founded back in 1937, Canon is a world famous producer of optical and image related products, such as Cameras and Lenses. The company was started by four individuals by the names of Takeshi Mitarai, Goro Yoshida, Saburo Uchida and Takeo Maeda. In its early days the company only produced camera bodies and was unable to produces lenses due to the lack of the proper facilities, meaning it had to rely on lenses from its now rival, Nikkor. During its history, Canon has been a world leader in terms of innovation producing among other notables, the Kwanon, Japan’s first 35mm focal plane shutter camera and in 1940, Japan’s first X-ray camera. In 1959, the company introduced the first zoom lens for television broadcasting, while in 1959, the Relex Zoom 8, the world first movie camera with a zoom lens. Canon has continued this innovation right up to the modern day, so you can guarantee that when you are buying a Canon, you are buying the best.
