Canon U.S.A, a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced that
its parent company, Canon Inc., is commemorating the 25th anniversary of
the EOS-1 series, the flagship model lineup of the Company’s EOS series
of interchangeable-lens cameras that debuted in 1989.
In 1987, Canon launched EOS, the world’s first autofocus (AF)
single-lens reflex camera to feature a fully electronic mount system,
using electrical signals to control such functions as autofocusing and
aperture adjustment. Two years later, in 1989, the Company introduced
its top-of-the-line professional model EOS-1. Created to satisfy the
advanced demands of professional photographers, the camera marked the
inaugural model of Canon’s EOS-1 series. Based on the EOS concept of
delivering automated performance to meet the user’s needs, the EOS-1
camera featured cutting-edge technologies, class-leading levels of
performance, high durability, robustness and reliability.
Canon has consistently launched SLR cameras designed to satisfy the
demands of professionals in step with the changing times. First, in
1994, as a growing number of professional photographers were making use
of the autofocusing capabilities offered by EOS cameras and EF lenses,
Canon launched the EOS-1N camera which featured an increased number of
focusing points and enhanced predictive focusing capabilities when
tracking moving subjects. Then, in 2000, the Company introduced the
EOS-1V camera, equipped with 45-point high-density area AF, which
contributed to accurate and precise high-speed predictive AF up to nine
Upon entering the digital era, in 2001 Canon launched its first
flagship-model, professional digital SLR camera the EOS-1D, followed in
2002 by the EOS-1Ds camera, equipped with a full-frame 35mm sensor.
Since then, the Company has reinforced its product lineup through
efforts targeting enhanced image quality, continuous shooting
performance and rugged reliability even when shooting in adverse weather
conditions such as rain or snow.
In June 2012, Canon released the EOS-1D X, its latest flagship pro-model
digital SLR camera, marking the EOS-1 camera series’ 13th* model since
the launch of the original EOS-1 camera. The EOS-1D X Digital SLR camera
has garnered strong acclaim from professionals working in a wide range
of fields, from photojournalism and sports coverage to commercial and
Through the introduction of its powerful flagship model EOS-1 series,
Canon continues to enhance the value of its product lineup by
incorporating cutting-edge technologies, and the expansion of these
technologies, even to entry-level models. In addition to its robust
camera lineup, Canon contributes to developing the culture of
photographic and video imaging through its efforts to fulfill the
diverse needs of its users.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene.
In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
