Canon 8 x 30 1960's
Although it scarcely predates World War II (1933), Canon Inc. has already become one of the world's leading manufacturers of electronics, principally optical electronics. Year in and year out one of the top 10 companies receiving U.S. patents, Canon has a history of innovation that has brought it a leadership position in copiers, laser and bubble-jet printers, facsimile machines, cameras, and camcorders. In addition to a recent incursion into the production of personal computers, Canon also manufactures and markets binoculars, calculators, electronic typewriters and word processors, and medical, broadcasting, and semiconductor equipment.
The name Canon Camera Co. Inc. was changed in 1969 to Canon Inc.
