Canon Philippines introduces their new camera line up, printer with ink refillable and Canon Cloud service


Canon Philippines started the year 2016 by introducing their latest products – new cameras, printer and also a cloud service. It’s a good year for my Azrael’s Merryland Blog too, because this is the 1st event of the year that I cover for my blog.
Its good to see again my blogger colleagues, media and PR friends and also…great to be tapped by Canon Philippines again after several years of absence in my blog. I hope you can tap us bloggers once more to spread the good news about your Canon products.

The Canon products that were introduced to us were already launched and announced late last year, but the good part here is that there are new additions of Canon cameras under the premium compact camera category that will be available in the market this month.


Canon Philippines shared to us first their Canon Cloud service. It’s a service where they can offer digital file storage and sharing in one big network. The main market of their Canon Cloud is the big corporations who are looking for a better service to secure their files, especially digital imaging content, and to be shared in their company’s network by demand.

The service can also be the company’s back up storage facility if ever building and offices to be digitally insured if ever damaged by a fire or earthquake. Files will be secured by Canon Cloud and it can be accessed by account holders and members of the Canon Cloud network.


Canon Powershot G3 X were introduced as one of their new premium high-zoom digital compact camera. I’m totally impressed on the focal length of this camera. Normally the Powershot cameras do digital zooming, but with this Powershot G3 X, digital zooming is helped with some more optical zoom by its lens.


Have a taste of a 24-600mm glory!
the zoom is so powerful and it’s a perfect camera for travel, sports, events and bird photography.
