Optical Technology

The motive-force technology of Canon, a leader in the image field, is, of course, its optical technology.

With its technologies to control images by applying the principles of light reflection and refraction, Canon designs optical systems to meet various applications by combining lenses. The design/application of the aspherical lens, fluorite lens and UD lens, and the development of the Vari-Angle Prism form bases for our image-related devices.

While Canon, the top manufacturer of cameras, has successively developed new technology to capture images accurately and reproduce them with a high level of expression, it is also promoting a wide range of research and development toward the further evolution of optical technologies utilizing its accumulated know-how in fields from copying machines to laser printers and highly advanced steppers.
