All About Canon Digital Cameras

About Canon

Canon is a multi-national electronics company based in Tokyo, Japan.  Specialising in optical and imaging products, Canon manufactures cameras, camcorders, photocopiers and photoprinters.

Canon Digital Cameras

Canon first started producing digital cameras in 1984, with the first model being the RC-701.  Since then, Canon have gone on to provide both consumer and professional camera kits, including the IXUS range and DSLRs (Digital Single-Lens Reflex).

Digital Compact Cameras

The Canon range of digital compact cameras includes the IXUS and PowerShot.  The IXUS range is small and modern, available in a range of different colours and styles.  The IXUS 1000 HS features 10x optical zoom, 10 megapixel CMOS sensor, Image Stabalisation and full HD video recording.  Other cameras in the IXUS range include the IXUS 310 HS and the IXUS 220 HS.

PowerShot cameras include the PowerShot G12, the PowerShot S95 and the PowerShot SX230 HS.  The SX230 HS offers 12.1 megapixels, 14x optical zoom with image stabalisation, full HD video and GPS tagging.  These compact cameras can be a great addition to any party, travel experience or just something to carry around with you during your daily life.


Canon also offers a range of DSLR cameras for the more professional photographer.  Known as the EOS range, these cameras include EOS 1100D, the EOS 500D and the EOS 7D.  The EOS 7D features an 18 megapixel sensor, intelligent viewfinder and full HD recording.  The ISO range extends to 12500 and shooting can occur at up to 8 frames a second.

Camera Lenses

To compliment their range of cameras, Canon also offer a range of camera lenses.  The range of products available is vast and includes both a wide and standard zoom lens, as well as telephoto and macro.  These extra lenses increase flexibility and the freedom of the photographer.


Canon offer a range of high-end products that are both stylish and effective to use.  While a lot of the products on offer are reasonably expensive, there is certainly no compromise on quality from a brand that can be trusted.
