Canon Commemorates 25 Years since the Launch of the Flagship Model EOS-1 ...

MELVILLE, N.Y., Jun 10, 2014 (BUSINESS WIRE) –

Canon U.S.A, a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced that

its parent company, Canon Inc., is commemorating the 25th anniversary of

the EOS-1 series, the flagship model lineup of the Company’s EOS series

of interchangeable-lens cameras that debuted in 1989.

In 1987, Canon launched EOS, the world’s first autofocus (AF)

single-lens reflex camera to feature a fully electronic mount system,

using electrical signals to control such functions as autofocusing and

aperture adjustment. Two years later, in 1989, the Company introduced

its top-of-the-line professional model EOS-1. Created to satisfy the

advanced demands of professional photographers, the camera marked the

inaugural model of Canon’s EOS-1 series. Based on the EOS concept of

delivering automated performance to meet the user’s needs, the EOS-1

camera featured cutting-edge technologies, class-leading levels of

performance, high durability, robustness and reliability.

Canon has consistently launched SLR cameras designed to satisfy the

demands of professionals in step with the changing times. First, in

1994, as a growing number of professional photographers were making use

of the autofocusing capabilities offered by EOS cameras and EF lenses,

Canon launched the EOS-1N camera which featured an increased number of

focusing points and enhanced predictive focusing capabilities when

tracking moving subjects. Then, in 2000, the Company introduced the

EOS-1V camera, equipped with 45-point high-density area AF, which

contributed to accurate and precise high-speed predictive AF up to nine


Upon entering the digital era, in 2001 Canon launched its first

flagship-model, professional digital SLR camera the EOS-1D, followed in

2002 by the EOS-1Ds camera, equipped with a full-frame 35mm sensor.

Since then, the Company has reinforced its product lineup through

efforts targeting enhanced image quality, continuous shooting

performance and rugged reliability even when shooting in adverse weather

conditions such as rain or snow.

In June 2012, Canon released the EOS-1D X, its latest flagship pro-model

digital SLR camera, marking the EOS-1 camera series’ 13th* model since

the launch of the original EOS-1 camera. The EOS-1D X Digital SLR camera

has garnered strong acclaim from professionals working in a wide range

of fields, from photojournalism and sports coverage to commercial and

nature photography.

Through the introduction of its powerful flagship model EOS-1 series,

Canon continues to enhance the value of its product lineup by

incorporating cutting-edge technologies, and the expansion of these

technologies, even to entry-level models. In addition to its robust

camera lineup, Canon contributes to developing the culture of

photographic and video imaging through its efforts to fulfill the

diverse needs of its users.
