Canon DSLR Cameras
- The Canon autofocus
35 mm SLR and DSLR camera system was announced in 1987. The Canon EOS (Electro-Optical System) featuring the EOS 650 camera. EOS is still being promoted as Canon's present DSLR system. In Greek mythology, The Titan Goddess of dawn Eos was chosen as an acronym EOS, and is most often spoken as a single word (i.e., EE-oss), although many people spell the letters out. No official correct pronunciation exists, as both seem as logical.
Canon 35mm SLR Film
The majority of the Canon EOS SLR film cameras were manufactured to shoot 35mm film, a photographic roll film which is exactly 35mm wide. The film contains sprocket holes on both sides, so the serviceable35mm image area of the film becomes 24mm by 36mm size. The film comes in wound spools which are sealed inside a metal container (sometimes plastic) lightproof canister. Typically the film comes with either 24 or 36 frames (pictures) to a 35mm film roll.
35mm film, sometimes called 135 film after Kodak's original product number, is basically the only major camera film format most often used in today's world for still photography. 35mm is thought of as a small format as the negatives size is pretty small.

For many years, Canon were the principal makers of the print-engines found in industry-standard laser printers. The first models of Apple LaserWriter, and the equivalent products made by HP, used the Canon LBP-CX engine. The next models (LaserWriter II series, LaserJet II series) used the Canon LBP-SX engine. Later models used the Canon LBP-LX, LBP-EX, LBP-PX engines and many other Canon print engines.
Between printer models based on the same Canon print engine, many parts (such as toner cartridges, fuser units, roller assemblies) are interchangeable.
Canon laser printers use cartridges.
