leading Japanese manufacturer

The history of Canon dates back to 1933 when a gynecologist named Takeshi Mitarai and some of his technician friends founded the Precision Optical Instruments Laboratory in Japan.

In 1934, they created the very first Japanese 35mm focal plane-shutter camera prototype known as the Kwanon. 60 years later, they became the world’s top camera maker.

At the moment, Canon is known as a leading Japanese manufacturer of cameras, copiers, printers, along with innovative optical and nanoimprint lithography solutions or medical equipment.
