Canon spends nearly eight percent of its yearly sales on research and development, allowing the company to constantly be a leading innovator in many consumer and business markets. "Canon has a long heritage of imaging excellence and innovation that has helped us earn the trust of customers around the world," said Joe Adachi, president and chief executive officer, Canon USA Inc. "With that heritage as our foundation, Canon leads the market in bringing quality and original digital imaging technology to a broad range of consumers, businesses and industries."

Canon first Single-Lens Reflex
Canon's heritage of innovation extends back to the company's founding in the 1930's. Canon released the first 35mm camera in 1936 and the first Single-Lens Reflex (SLR) camera in 1959. In addition, Canon's AE-1 (1976), which was the first SLR with a built-in microprocessor, was the best selling 35mm SLR camera in history. Also, in the mid-1970's, Canon's innovative Bubble Jet printing technology was born in the Canon Labs.

Canon Digital Imaging products
From the original laser-based copier to the networking and digitalization of the workplace to today's shift to color documents, Canon has set the standard for digital imaging in departmental, workgroup environments and high-end production applications. Canon entered the business machines industry in the 1960s, and went on to achieve world-class status for its technological innovations. In 1968, Canon introduced a plain-paper copying machine. Canon also further improved electrophotography technologies to create the full-color copying machine family - the CLC Series - and the award-winning imageRUNNER Series of networked digital MFPs, both benchmarks for imaging innovation.

We do this through environmental, conservation, recycling and sustainability initiatives. We also practice kyosei through social and educational programs on behalf of young people and those in need.
