About Canon Cameras

If someone asked you to think of a brand of camera off the top of your head, it is most likely that Canon would come to mind. Canon is a well-established brand for cameras with its 80th anniversary in 2014. Success in camera manufacturing allowed the company to have a primary listing on the Tokyo Stock Exchange and a secondary listing on the New York Stock Exchange. Starting with a 35mm camera with a focal plane-based shutter released in 1934, Canon has never stopped in improving its line of cameras up to the arrival of the digital age. Today, Canon offers different models for SLR cameras, and digital SLR cameras, digital compact cameras. Canon EOS 7D DSLR, for instance, is an 18-megapixel quality camera that is developed to improve the photographic process of both still and moving images. You can enjoy features such as live face detection, 9-point options for correcting sharp focus, fast image shooting that can capture 90 frames in one continuous burst, and a 3-inch LCD screen that is not prone to smudging and is not susceptible to reflection. If you want the PowerShot variety, you can get a Canon PowerShot SX500 IS Digital Camera, having a very powerful 30x optical zoom with 24mm wide-angle lens and an optical image stabilizer to avoid blurry images even at an extreme zoom length. Also, the 16-megapixel camera has a movie button that allows users to record a 720p HD video in stereo sound. Although multi-functional, the SX500 is relatively slim with soft edges to give that compact and stylish look. If you want the small point-and-shoot camera of Canon, you can get one from IXUS line such as Canon IXUS 100 IS with expandable memory storage. The slim and light camera is great for travelling, and you can shoot underwater using it.
