Canon is a famous brand on just about anything it mass produces. Cameras, copiers, everything! And it is not because they are famous just because of slick marketing.
Well, maybe that too but majority of it is because they produce high quality products that perform well with regards to their intended use.
Canon copiers are known for their durability. I know quite a number of friends who bought a copier for their business ended up getting the Canon brand instead. Heck, those repairs cost a lot and they regret their decision to opt for the cheaper and unknown brands.
I am not saying Canon copiers are expensive. They are affordable but considering their brand and identity, I would say the pricing is fair.
Copy Faxes is an online marketplace where you can find and purchase Canon copiers in the comfort of your home. You can find out right away if the model you like is available or not. This is the convenience of the Internet.
They even deliver the purchased product to you!
The online marketplace itself is brimmed with everything one may need to complement their copier. Accessories are available for products that are compatible to it. This relieves you the trouble of having to look for accessories that can be useful to complement your Canon copier.
Nice new digicams from Sony huh? You’d think this photo was taken using Sony’s own line of DSLRs. Turns out this photo was taken by a Canon 5D Mark II. Is this normal? Or is this just how companies like Sony operate? They freelance their ad campaigns to any photographer without a care in the world what kind of camera they would use to take photos of their new line of Sonyt digital cameras?
This photo from Gizmodo shows it all. People may have absolutely no idea if you just focus on the picture itself. Once you find out the information specifics of the photo, that is where you will find some interesting tidbits.
While some non Canon brand external flash can fit right into my Canon 1000D SLR, my dad insisted I use a Canon brand for my external flash since he had a bad experience with his Nikon by using a non Nikon external flash and it got burnt in the process. My dad bought me a Canon Speedlite 430 EX external flash (yes I got it for free ha ha!) and I have been using this since for my flash needs.
The results are alright. I just use automatic since I am not really focused on using external flash settings manually since I do not use it all the time so automatic mode does well for me. The flash head can both tilt and swivel with a handy single catch to release the tilt and swivel motions (most tilt/swivel flash units have two catches). The head has a flip-out diffuser panel which can diffuse light up to a focal length of 14mm. It supports TTL and ETTL too.

Flash exposure confirmation indicator on back panel.
Support for second-curtain synchronization if the camera has the appropriate custom function.
