Canon Innovation Lab launches Jumpshot App, currently featured on the Canadian iOS App Store
BRAMPTON, ON, Nov. 10, 2016 /CNW/ - Canon Canada, the company that introduced Canadian consumers to the EOS Rebel and PowerShot lines of digital cameras, is now enhancing the post capture experience for consumers.
Thanks to the advances in camera technology, more than a trillion digital images are taken each year. The Canon Innovation Lab saw a great opportunity to develop a solution that deals with the overwhelming task of sorting tens of thousands of digital photos with the swipe of a thumb.
Jumpshot helps mobile photo takers focus on the images that matter to them and more importantly, consumers who use the app never have to worry about missing that important shot when their Camera Roll is full.
"Jumpshot is a great home-grown mobile app that simplifies the task of sorting through photo libraries," said Stephen Yanofsky, Director of New Business and Strategic Initiatives for Canon Canada. "Since launching Jumpshot, the iOS version of the app has already helped users sort through more than 1.5 million images and delete close to half a million photos from their devices."
Free to download and currently exclusive to iOS users, Jumpshot benefits include:
- Sort photo collections at lightning speed with a swipe of a thumb;
- Free up valuable space on your iPhone;
- Share photos to your social networks; and
Future enhancements for Jumpshot are already under development. Users will soon be able to quickly search and share photos based on factors such as location, time, subject matter or camera setting and also get real-time feedback on the technical quality of their images. Jumpshot aims to integrate with photo collections seamlessly on Dropbox, iCloud and iOS Camera Roll.
Launched in 2014, the Canon Innovation Lab is located in Waterloo at the Communitech hub, one of North America's top rated innovation ecosystems. The Lab is comprised of developers and designers focused on the needs of the imaging market. While the primary focus is on mobile apps and software, the Lab is also exploring emerging technologies from hardware to wearables to virtual reality.
