Canon 35mm SLR Cameras

The Scientist Who Lacked Any of the Canon 35mm SLR Cameras
It’s about time! Thanks to the Canon 35mm SLR cameras, the world of photography has now caught-up with the world of the microbiologist.
Eighty-nine years ago Theodore Escherich did not have access to any of the canon 35mm SLR cameras. When he discovered Bacterium coli he had no reason to wonder whether or not a camera attached to his microscope would need an EF-S lens. If he had made the same discovery today, he would have probably wanted to know that fact. The EF-S lens is the one type of canon EF lenses that is not compatible with the canon 35mm SLR cameras.
A Closer Look at the Canon 35mm SLR Cameras
If Theodore Escherich had been able to put one of the Canon 35mm SLR cameras on his lab microscope, then the world might have had not just still pictures of a bacterium, but video as well. That is because the Canon 35mm SLR cameras interface with video out. They also interface with IEEE1394 and USB.
The Canon 35mm SLR cameras have an image sensor with 8.5 mega pixels (total) and with 8.2 effective mega pixels. They deliver a sensitivity of 100-1600 in 1/3 stops, in addition to offering 50 and 3200 as options. All of this the Canon 35mm SLR cameras pack into a space that is just 6.1”x 6.2”x 3.1”.
The Canon 35mm SLR cameras have a shutter speed that ranges from 1/8000 s to 1/30s. They also offers two different file formats: RAW and JPEG. Just imagine what Theodore Escherich could have done with those capabilities.
Losses Sustained When the Canon 35mm SLR Cameras Were Unavailable
If Theodore Escherich had had both one of the Canon 35mm SLR cameras and a computer with an Internet connection, then he could have easily sent other scientists pictures of the bacterium that he had discovered. Unfortunately, the 18th Century microbiologist had neither of those technical marvels, and thus he had great difficulty convincing the world that such microbes existed. It took the scientific community many decades to listen attentively to Escherich’s hypothesis, the theory that bacteria were the probable cause for the many infectious diseases then plaguing the world.
Those of us who have been lucky enough to be born in the late Twentieth or early Twenty-first Century can feel confident that the discovery of any new microbes will be readily broadcast to the entire scientific community. Thanks to the Canon 35mm SLR cameras, the microbiologists and health care workers of today will take quick and decisive action if there is a new bacterium or virus suddenly spotted in the lens of a laboratory microscope. They will act rapidly to avoid the spread of that organism in the general population.
