Canon celebrates production of 250 million digital cameras

TOKYO, Japan, March 27, 2014—Canon Inc. today celebrated a camera-manufacturing milestone as combined production of the Company’s compact digital and interchangeable-lens digital cameras surpassed 250 million units on January 31, 2014.

Canon, a company that has continuously produced cameras since its founding in 1937, began producing and marketing digital cameras in the mid 1990s. In 1995, when film cameras were still the norm, Canon launched its first digital camera, the professional-model EOS DCS 3* digital SLR camera.

At the time, compact cameras were leading the digital shift within the camera industry. In 1996, Canon announced its market entry with the introduction of the PowerShot 600, the Company’s first compact digital camera. In 2000, amid the market’s rapid growth, Canon launched the IXY DIGITAL (PowerShot S100 or DIGITAL IXUS in markets outside of Japan), featuring a ground-breaking compact, stylish body design that set the trend for compact digital cameras.

Meet the C-Cup, An Improved Viewfinder For The Canon EOS C100

Found this project by Andrew Alden Miller at Kickstarter. An alternative viewfinder for the Canon EOS C100 (Adorama | B&H) .

A custom eyecup that fits perfectly to the Canon C100, transforming the EVF from “unusable” into ideal.

The C-Cup

The C-Cup is a traditionally shaped eyecup designed to fit perfectly to the Canon C100, improving the camera’s electronic viewfinder and overall ergonomics. Anyone who has picked up the camera knows that the C100’s EVF is not what it could be. In the C-Cup, we’ve designed a simple and inexpensive solution that makes the C100’s viewfinder what it should have been in the first place.

Viewfinder For The Canon EOS C100
Functionality and Compatibility
The C-Cup is designed to look and feel like an extension of the camera. It can be used with either eye, providing a comfortable, flexible cushion to push against and a solid third point of contact. It wraps around the eye to block out light, and it doesn’t disrupt the camera’s shape or balance. Simply put, the C-Cup allows you to comfortably use your C100’s EVF so you can fully take advantage of the camera’s excellent form-factor.We’ve designed the C-Cup as simply as possible so that we can make it as cheaply as possible. The C-Cup doesn’t add a diopter or lens – or anything for that matter. It simply changes the shape of the EVF’s cushion. However simple, the C-Cup dramatically changes your shooting experience for a reasonable price.To make the C-Cup inexpensively, we had to design it as a single piece. Because it’s a single piece that form-fits to the C100’s existing EVF, the C-Cup is not compatible with any other camera.The C-Cup is compatible with standard-sized chamois.
