Shoot to the clouds
Canon Project 1709
It seems like everybody’s jumping on the social media bandwagon (some more logically than others). Canon’s decided to take a shot too with their curiously named, cloud-based storage service Project 1709.
Currently in beta testing, this online photo warehouse places heavy emphasis on UI and sports the ever-popular tile layout (cough, Flickr) for quick viewing, editing and sharing with Facebook, Google and others. Where it really adds appeal for Canon customers, though, is its display of camera settings for each image, allowing you to see and catalog exactly how you captured every photo. While it’s only available in the U.K. for now, serious photographers and professional Instagram-ers only have to wait until February 2013 for a full launch.
