25 years of Canon professional cameras

Canon is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the EOS-1 series, the company’s flagship range of interchangeable-lens cameras.

The EOS series made its  debut back in 1987 with the launch of the EOS 650, the world’s first autofocus single-lens reflex (SLR) camera to employ a fully electronic mount system, capable of controlling functions including AF and aperture adjustment using electrical signals. Two years later, in 1989, the Company introduced its first professional EOS model, the EOS-1.

With the dawn of the digital era, in 2001 Canon launched its first flagship professional digital SLR (DSLR) camera — the EOS-1D, followed by the full-frame EOS-1Ds in 2002. Canon’s current flagship professional DSLR camera, the EOS-1D X, was brought to market in June 2012.

Including the EOS-1D C digital SLR camera, launched in December 2012 and capable of recording 4K video, Canon’s EOS-1 series lineup comprises a total of 14 models.

Canon cloud-based image management

Canon has launched 'irista' – an advanced, cloud-based image management platform that allows you to access and manage photo libraries.

People today take thousands of digital photographs which have become scattered across multiple devices – irista is built to help curate entire image libraries in one central location. Previously known in beta-form as Project1709, irista makes it easy to find any picture or memory – regardless of which device it was shot on.

irista has been created around four consumer needs:
·  simple to use: making it quick and easy to find any image in a photo collection
·  connected: share images directly on Facebook and Flickr and keep track of likes and comments
·  inspired: a single place for people to interact with their images, enhance their photography skills and get the most out of their pictures
·  puts everybody in control: all images stored securely in one location so they can be accessed anytime, anywhere

The service supports a wide range of file …
