Canon’s EOS R and Nikon’s Z mirrorless systems are coming out of the gate strong, incorporating features that took Sony years to implement and refine. But Sony still has a lead, and may have it for some time.
Japanese camera manufacturer Canon has been one of the largest names in the camera industry since long before photography became a digital concern. The company has been making film-based, and then digital cameras for every skill level and practical form of recording still images and video since 1934. The company is also a major manufacturer of consumer and industrial printers. Fun fact: Canon made a very brief foray into making computers and “word processors” (typewriters) in the early 1980s, but gave up on the technology by the end of the decade.
