Canon Camera Forum

This forum is exclusively for discussion for Canon camera and equipment. If you’re a Canon enthusiast, a Canon user, or you’re still on the fence; this forum is the place to interact with fellow Canon photographers.

Canon’s first ever camera was born in 1934. This prototype served as Japan’s first 35mm focal-plane shutter camera. It was called the Kwanon, a name that was derived from the Buddhist goddess of Mercy. The developers of this camera envisioned this gear to be the world’s finest camera and this was a tribute to the said god. Later on, the name “Kwanon” was changed to “Canon”, which depicts a standard for judgment. Since then, “Canon” was known as a company that strove for nothing less than precision.

In the 1950s, Canon produced a product that raised it a cut above the rest. It was because of their Serenar 50mm, f1.8 lens. This was a lens that was ahead of its time, as it had the power to eliminate flares that was so many lenses during its time. It allowed Canon to be the leader in the field of optical technology.

We hope this forum will surely delight you in more ways than one. Feel free to share your questions, post your inquiries and comments. From your fellow Canon fans here at PhotographyTalk, you’re welcome here.
