Within the pages of "Canon - A Celebration", Brian Long chronicles the birth of the famous Japanese brand, from its early days in the 1930s as the Kwanon to the award-winning EOS range of digital camers of today. Its rise to dominance in the camera market and its innovations and new models have made Canon the choice of discerning photographers the world over.
About the Author
Brian Long is a professional writer, having written over forty motoring books, as well as Nikon-A Celebration. His twenties were spent using cameras as part of his job as a journalist and his enginering background slowly made him realise the technical innovations that went into each new model or lens. Slowly building up a collection of the finest Nikon and Canon cameras, he has learned to appreciate them first-hand by using them on a day-to-day basis. Resident - Japan

I should express that the book with the contents, pictures and print quality is excellent.
A must for Canon enthusiasts!
[However, it would be better not to include the information about the movie equipment line, 'cause its really another thing. The list for the home movie cameras includes the SCOOPIC 16mm line which is not in that camera category for sure. But this is a very minor issue for this high quality book!]
NB: This is a "fair" review despite Brian is my good friend!
IT is all most up to date , but stops at about 2008 , so all the very latest models and developments are not covered .
That does not matter however, as all the core history is here, beautifully illustrated to.
