2012 is a big year for Canon Philippines as they celebrate their 15 successful years of solid presence here in our country. We attended the grand celebration last April 18 at SM North Cyberzone which also marks the first day of a weeklong expo to showcase their new products aimed at businesses and regular consumers.
Besides their 15th anniversary, Canon also celebrated their recent recognitions and awards from various organizations. This serves as a proof of their unyielding dedication to not only provide quality products but also help the Philippine community. Here are some of the awards that Canon has recently received.

Canon was given the Award of Merit by the Public Relations Society of the Philippines (PRSP) for both their Canon GreenNation and annual Canon PhotoMarathon event.
Amongst the many highlights of the event were the WiFi enabled cameras and camcorders, printers with wireless printing capability and the 3 award-winning flagship devices which are the EOS-1D X, EOS C300 and EOS 5D Mark III. Canon was also generous to give away numerous cameras and printers (and Photography books) to lucky attendees.
