Canon is one of the biggest names in photography equipment and makes cameras that range from entry-level budget units up to professional cameras costing thousands and thousands of dollars. Canon has announced something new that isn't a camera, but is a place where photographers can store their photos online. The new photo storage service is called Irista.
Irista is designed to compete against other similar storage services like Picasa, Flickr, Dropbox, Google Drive, and iCloud. The big difference is that Irista is only for storing photos and can't be used to store documents like the other services can. A range of photo file types are supported.
Users can set up automatic uploads and can tag and filter photos by date, location, custom tags, and lens type. EXIF data is also available for each image stored on the site. Irista has no size limits for files and you can share to Facebook and Flickr as well. New users get 10GB of free storage with 50GB of storage offered for £4.49 a month or £45 per year. 100GB is £9.99 a month or £99 per year.
