The "T" Series Cameras
The march to the future continues
The Canon “T” Series of cameras was the Company’s last line of manual focus SLR cameras. There were 5 cameras in all, all made of sculpted polycarbonate (plastic) and there was extensive use of automation. The SLR market was being depressed by the highly automatic “point and shoot” cameras and this series attempted to create a more sophisticated camera that was very easy to operate. They were successful.
Except for the T60, which was almost an afterthought and has very little in common with the other “T” cameras, one can see in this series the movement towards what became the EOS Series in both operation and form.
|Camera||Year of Introduction|

T Series in the Collection
I am not in any way connected to or supported by Canon. I chose their camera line and have stayed with it. I cannot recall why. But a Nikon camera is fine technology and takes a wonderful picture. So too with Sony and the others. But I have been happy with Canon and so I have begun my collection here. One day I may add other brands to my range interest. But that is for another day.
