Canon to close its Irista service

Canon EMEA has announced that it will close its Irista cloud photo service on 31 January 2020.

Canon will move away from the cloud image storage industry and instead focus on investing in its imaging technology and connected services that sit closer to its cameras, such as Canon image Gateway and Canon Camera Connect.

This gives Canon an opportunity to partner with experts in end-user services and as such, Irista users can have a complimentary 2-month membership of Adobe Lightroom (1TB), where users can easily edit, organise, store and share photos from anywhere.

Customers are encouraged to download all data from Irista before the service closes. Downloading images is a simple process and instructions are clearly outlined on the Irista website. Once the service closes on 31 January 2020, all customer data will be deleted.

Canon completes its 2019 commitment to RF lens line-up

Canon Europe today launches the RF 70-200mm f2.8L IS USM and RF 85mm f1.2L USM DS lenses, delivering on its commitment to introduce six RF lenses for the EOS R System in 2019.

100 million Canon EOS cameras milestone

Canon has announced that on 20 September 2019 it reached a significant manufacturing milestone, having produced 100 million EOS camera bodies.

The 100 millionth camera to roll of the production line was the EOS R camera, Canon's first full frame mirrorless model originally launched in October 2018.
