(LANKAPUVATH | COLOMBO) – Canon Inc. announced recently that the company’s interchangeable-lens digital cameras (digital SLR and mirrorless cameras) have maintained the No. 1 share of the global market for 20 consecutive years from 2003 to 2022. Metropolitan, the sole authorized distributor for Canon in Sri Lanka is proud to celebrate this historic accolade with Canon.
Canon develops the key imaging system components featured in its EOS series of digital interchangeable-lens cameras – CMOS image sensors, image processors and interchangeable lenses – under the core concept of, “Speed, Comfort and High Image Quality.” Putting together a wide-ranging product lineup – from high performance flagship models that are highly trusted by professionals to entry level models that allow users to enjoy high image quality shooting with easy operation, as well as a rich selection of RF and EF series lenses that make possible a wealth of creative expression – Canon continues to support the diverse needs of customers.

Metropolitan is proud to be the sole authorized distributor in Sri Lanka for nearly five decades. Metropolitan also operates the only Canon Authorized Service Center.
Canon’s desire to further expand the boundaries of visual expression led to its next-generation EOS R System, launched in October 2018, that includes the EOS R5 – the first camera to feature 8K video recording released in July 2020 and the EOS R3 in November 2021, which features tracking of fast moving subjects and continuous shooting performance. In addition, Canon launched the EOS VR System, designed to record video for virtual reality content, in December 2021.
Canon released in 2022 the EOS R7 and R10, the first APS-C size models in the EOS R Series. Canon launched the EOS R6 Mark II that features advanced AF functionality and superb video capabilities. Canon recently announced the EOS R8 and R50 to cater to the ever expanding video creators needs. While further expanding its lineup, Canon managed to secure the No. 1 share of the global market for the 20th consecutive year.
Canon will continue to refine its proprietary imaging technologies while further strengthening and expanding the EOS series of cameras and RF/EF series of lenses, opening up new avenues of image capture to meet the needs of increasingly diverse users and to promote the spread of photo and video culture.
