Canon clinches 14th consecutive year of No. 1 Share of Global Interchangeable-Lens Digital Camera market


Today, Canon Inc. is proud to announce that their interchangeable-lens digital cameras (digital SLR and compact-system cameras) is once again the no.1 of market share globally for the 14th year in a row starting from 2003.

During 2003, Canon made a breakthrough with the EOS 300D Digital (EOS Digital Rebel or EOS Kiss Digital in other regions) and it happens to be one of the main factors to capture the top share of the global market. Ever since that time, Canon has continued to launch a range of products, including the professional-model EOS-1D series and the EOS 5D series in digital SLR video recording.

Then in 2016, it was when Canon introduced an impressive lineup of interchangeable-lens camera products in Japan. This includes the EOS 80D, EOS-1D X Mark II, and EOS 5D Mark IV, capable of 4K video, was released in September.

In continuing the pursuit of "Speed, Comfort and High Image Quality, the core concept of the EOS series”, the company will launch three cameras equipped with the highly accurate autofocus technology, Dual Pixel CMOS AF: the EOS M6 compact-system camera and the EOS 77D (EOS 9000D in other regions) and EOS 800D (EOS Rebel T7i or EOS Kiss X9i in other regions) digital SLR cameras in Japan.
