The Canon CS100 Connect Station Lets You Manage Images in One Spot


Just in time for CES 2015, Canon is showing off their brand new connect station that they previously showed in concept form years ago at Canon EXPO. According to the company’s press release the device is designed to let the user “connect to multiple compatible imaging devices allowing users to easily store, view and share images and videos.” The CS100 stores 1TB of memory, and features WiFi and NFC connectivity. The content (JPEG, RAW(CR2), MP4, MOV and AVCHD) can then be viewed on a connected television.
