Canon is a global leader in digital imaging and solutions for at home and work. A reliable partner of Kamera Express for many years. Since Canon was founded in 1937, it has applied the expertise it has built up in digital and imaging technology to new products and operations.
In 1934, with the Kwanon, Precision Optical Instruments Laboratory presented a prototype viewfinder camera as the first Japanese 35mm camera with focal plane shutter. The name Canon was registered in 1935 and shortly afterwards the Hansa Canon 35mm viewfinder camera was introduced; again a little later the Precision Optical Industry was founded for the production of lenses. Shortly after WWII, the name was changed to Canon Camera Co and the company first attracted wide attention with the Canon SII. In the following years, in addition to various viewfinder cameras, film cameras were also made.
