Canon Inc. (キヤノン株式会社?) Kiyanon kabushiki-gaisha is a Japanese multinational corporation based in Ōta, Tokyo, Japan. The name comes from Kwanon, a 1934 prototype 35mm camera.
Canon’s first camera debuted in 1984 and all current DSLR cameras are part of the EOS (Electro-Optical System) system, introduced in 1987. The acronym EOS was chosen for Eos, the Titan Goddess of dawn in Greek mythology, and is often pronounced as a word (UK /ˈiː.ɒs/ or US /ˈiː.ɑːs/), although some spell out the letters, reading it as an initialism.
The Canon EOS-1D C is stated to be the world’s first 4K resolution DSLR camera.
