Best Canon cameras on 2020

Canon cameras are one of the traditional brands in the photographic market alongside Nikon. Founded in Tokyo in 1933 under the name Precision Optical Instruments Laboratory. At this time, Japan was boosting the industry and the brand was born specializing in cameras.

Its first cameras mimicked the European Leica and Contax cameras. Although already in its early years it began to manufacture high-quality cameras. Canon has always been known for having its range of products that cover the entire photographic spectrum, from lenses to printers.

Already in the digital age, in fact, it was among the first to develop sensors for its cameras. Today, Canon cameras are still a benchmark in the industry.

What Canon cameras offer

Canon has all types of cameras in its catalog. From Reflex to compact, through mirrorless, bridge and snapshots. The Japanese brand is the leader in the photography market, thanks mainly to its DSLRs. Its SLR cameras continue to be a reference for amateurs and professionals of photography and video.

In the last two years, Canon has begun to enhance its catalog of mirrorless. Although they will present their first models years ago, it was not until relatively recently that they began to focus on these types of cameras. With the launch of the EOS R mirrorless full-frame system, Canon has assumed that the future of photography lies in this type of camera.

As we have already mentioned, the Canon catalog does not end here. You can find all kinds of Canon compact, bridge and snapshot cameras. The latter have become fashionable again, especially among young audiences. Compacts, on the contrary, are suffering a drop in demand due to the high quality currently offered by phones. As for bridges, Canon has managed to include the latest technologies in its cameras, offering small cameras with the same functions as high-end DSLRs.
