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.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
