Canon has shipped its 30-millionth camera in the EOS series; 30 million since the first film-based EOS 650 AF SLR shipped in 1987!
Canon took to counting cameras today after counting years (70 years as a company and 20 years for the EOS line). Of course, theyâ€™re celebrating these anniversaries.
Counting the digital EOS units, Canon says they have shipped 10 million of those since they formally ushered in the age of the digital SLR camera in 2000 with the introduction of the EOS D30.
This year, commemorating the 20th year of the EOS series, Canon has further bolstered its digital SLR camera lineup with the launch of the top-of-the-line EOS-1D Mark III and EOS-1Ds Mark III, featuring a fully revamped camera system, as well as the EOS 40D, which has won praise from a wide range of users, from first-time SLR camera owners to advanced amateurs.
