About Canon EOS
Canon Inc. designs and markets the EOS series of SLR and DSLR cameras. EOS is the abbreviation of Electro-Optical System and is also a reference to the Titan goddess of dawn, Eos.
History of Canon EOS
The EOS series was launched as Canon’s SLR series of cameras. The first product under the brand name was the EOS 650 and it was launched in 1987.
Canon’s first digital SLR (DSLR) model was the D30, which was released in 2000. The digital series still remains in production, and from 2005, Canon went full digital by discarding the film sensors.
Popularity in India
When it comes to photography and cameras, Canon happens to be a household name, along with the like of Nikon, Sony, and some other brands. However, in the range of DSLRs and SLRs, it has always been a two way affair with Nikon and Canon.
The EOS series is one of the most sought after cameras by professional photographers and hobbyists alike. Also, they are largely available in shops and online, besides having a large presence of service centers around the country. Thus, it is fair to say that the Canon EOS has a very good market share in India.
Design of Canon EOS
Canon EOS series cameras are available as full kits, i.e. with lenses, and with just the body alone. Lenses can be separately purchased as per requirements.
Generally, the body weighs roughly about a kg at most and is made up of plastic or magnesium alloy. The more expensive models also essentially offer a more toughened body along with weather sealing features. There are a number of control buttons at the back, along with an LCD panel. The body also provides great grip for shooting.
The EOS cameras come with an EF mounting system for the lenses. This is a pretty new approach that replaced the earlier FD mounting system. The EF mounts also so make any use of mechanical moving parts, and control of the aperture and focus happens via electrical contacts. Being a large lens mount, the present system also enables the use of large aperture lenses.
For additional flash systems, one can rely on the Speedlite brand that offers numerous kinds of flash setups. Built-in flash is provided with all models.
Features of Canon EOS
The EOS lineup comes with a number of models that cater to entry-level, midrange and high-end markets. Typically, Canon models are named in accordance to their segment. The basic models have a 3-4 digit number while the midrange models have 2. High-end cameras are essentially named with a single digit and the flagship always bears the number 1.
Canon cameras come with certain excusive features that stand out. Many of the cameras come with eye-controlled focusing, which basically selects the focus by tracking the eye of the shooter. However, this function is certainly not present with the current digital models.
The Quick Control Dial is great feature implemented by Canon that allows the user to control commonly used functions without having to make a number of button presses to get there. Using the thumb on the QCD and the forefinger on the main, a shooter can easily take shots without having to take the eye off the viewfinder.
Multi-point auto-focus is another great feature that equips cameras with up to 61 autofocus points. This assists the shooter in taking more accurate shots.
EOS cameras also provide a number of connectivity options by the likes of USB, HDMI mini, Video output, Headphone jack and more. Storage can be made on a SD/SDHC card.
The minimum/maximum ISO and megapixel count vary with the numerous models.
Canon has recently revealed that it has developed a 250 megapixel CMOS APS-H sensor. Although the release of such cameras certainly won’t be very soon, it is still something that remains in the horizon.
