Firstly – please allow me to wish you all a happy
and prosperous new year. This is the first issue of
the year and we’ve already had some new product
announcements. The entry level Legria video
cameras have gone through some changes and
the Powershot G9 X becomes a new Mark II. We
also changed our entry level Ixus cameras – aimed
specifically at the first-time digital camera user.
This year we will be celebrating the 30th anniversary
of the EOS sub-brand, launched for the first time in
March 1987. EOS was the brand name we gave our
auto focus SLR cameras to differentiate them from
the “A” and “F” models we had in the manual focus
range. Since 1987, Canon has made over 80 million
EOS cameras and over 120 million EF lenses to go
with them. The overwhelming majority of these
units have been in the digital products launched
These are indeed massive numbers and puts Canon
very clearly in the lead with more DSLR cameras
and auto focus lenses produced than any other
manufacturer. Hopefully 2017 will prove to be yet
another successful year for EOS.
We are currently finalising venues, dates and
speakers for the first round of roadshows this year,
so please keep an eye on your inboxes and our
Facebook pages for details coming soon.
Until we see you – keep Clicking away!
