Canon has launched a photo-centric cloud vault named irista

Back in 2012, Canon embarked on a project which aimed to solve the issue of user photos being scattered across numerous media cards, mobile devices and computer-based storage. The free beta trial of its Project1709 online storage and photo management platform was launched at Photokina in September of that year, and developers have been fine-tuning the service ever since.

The photo-centric cloud vault offers new sign-ups a generous helping of free storage, includes some nifty social networks integration tools and is claimed to make organizing and finding digital memories a snap.  Read More
