The History of Canon

Canon started out and was founded by  Takeshi Mitarai, Goro Yoshida, Saburo Uchida and Takeo Maeda. The company’s original name was Precision Optical Instruments Laboratory.

When the company first started they didn’t have a facility to manufacturer parts for the company. They did all of their work solo. They used parts from Nikon cameras.

Well I guess you learn something new everyday. 4 trillion. Wow. Read about the history of Canon. Click the link.
