When a manufacturer releases a new camera model, it can be beneficial to photography schools and professional shooters alike. However, cameras can help advance the careers of individuals in other fields as well.
This week, Canon launched its first hi-tech retina camera for doctors and hospitals across the country. This model will help diagnose conditions such as glaucoma, according to the Los Angeles News Monitor.
Experts say the camera appears to be similar to other hospital machines in appearance. However, users will recognize that the shutter is almost identical to the ones found in digital SLR cameras. They have the capability to take in-depth photographs of retinas, which can help detect diseases earlier, such as diabetes. The clarity the camera provides will help doctors study the tissue and blood vessels in patients' eyes.
The device is able to produce a number of different kinds of retina imaging as well. Canon is known for developing cameras that have revolutionized the world of photography. As medical professionals benefit from the new model, photographers are not the only ones who will be able to appreciate the work of Canon.
