Canon Celebrates 12th Consecutive Year at Number One in the Global Interchangeable-Lens Digital Camera Market

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 26 March 2015 – Canon Inc. today announces that the company is celebrating a 12th year as the global number one in terms of volume within the interchangeable-lens digital camera¹ market.

Canon’s run as market leader began in 2003², a time when digital SLR cameras were still very much in their infancy, and coincided with the launch of the company’s ground breaking EOS 300D. Offering consumers a compact, lightweight design at a competitive price, the EOS 300D was a true innovation and set the stage for Canon’s growth in the digital SLR market. Since then, Canon has continued to challenge and innovate and has launched a host of industry defining products, including the EOS-1D series for professional users, and the EOS 5D series, which paved the way for digital SLR video recording thanks to its full-frame sensor employing a video-capture function.

More recently, in October 2014 Canon launched the EOS 7D Mark II for advanced-amateur users, which has garnered high acclaim for its fast continuous shooting speed of 10 frames per second and superior autofocus performance. The range was further bolstered in February of this year with the introduction of five new camera models. The new line-up includes the EOS 5DS and 5DS R, which boasts the world’s highest pixel count among 35 mm full-frame sensor digital SLR cameras³; the EOS 760D and EOS 750D – two entry-level digital SLR cameras; and the EOS M3 – a digital compact-system camera which offers a premium performance for enthusiast photographers.

Astrophotography Techniques Tips & Tricks with the Canon EOS System (Canon DLC)


Canon’s EOS 60Da, made for astrophotograhy.

Canon Digital Learning Center posted a how to for astrophotography with the EOS system.

Canon DSLRs are amazingly versatile for astrophotography. We can shoot long exposures of deep-sky objects at high ISOs because Canon CMOS sensors are remarkably sensitive and have exceptionally low noise. We can also use them to do time-lapse photography of the heavens, and even use the high-definition video modes for high-resolution planetary photography. Unlike specialized astronomical CCD cameras, DSLRs don’t require a computer for use in the field for focusing and recording of the images.
