Canon makes its 50 millionth camera

It’s incredible to think that 50 million people around the world own a Canon EOS-series camera, but they do. Since the late eighties, Canon has been producing the EOS-series range and has just announced that it has produced its 50 millionth camera in the EOS range.

After taking 10 years to reach 10 million cameras in 1997, the final 10 million cameras took a mere 16 months. The team is also anticipating another milestone in the making – hoping to to hit production of its 70 millionth EF interchangeable lens.

There’s other news too…  Canon has just announced the release of its EOS-1D X flagship professional digital SLR camera. “The EOS-1D X is the ultimate all-rounder for professionals from sport, photojournalism and nature photography through to studio, fashion and wedding/portrait work, also offering the ability to capture Full HD movies and comply with video industry standards,” says Cathy Hattersley, brand manager, EOS Professional, Canon Australia. The price is yet to be released, but it will be available from March 2012 onwards. Photography enthusiasts, read more about it here.

  1. Just purchased my first Canon EOS camera which arrived in the mail yesterday.

    Looking forward to having a play and putting it to good use.

    Fingers crossed that I master the art of jewellery photography quickly.
