Canon today launches the portable Canon Media Storage M80 device. Designed with EOS and other digital photographers in mind, the units feature a large ultra-bright 3.7-inch TFT screen with 160º viewing angle for image and video review, and a 80GB hard disk to store digital images, movie and sound files of various file formats. The Canon M80 unit features a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface and slots for CF and SD cards. With its tough, robust magnesium alloy body and intuitive navigation familiar to EOS owners, the Canon M80 media storage device adds an important link to the workflow chain of professional photojournalists and photographers on location, outdoor and expedition shoots.

The Canon M80 are also expected to be popular with the increasing body of every-day photographers looking for new ways to store and display favourite shots and extend storage capacity whilst away from the computer. “This is the EOS accessory many Canon professionals have been asking us for,” said Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging Europe. “As well as extending pro photographer back-up and storage capacity, there is no doubt the Canon M80 will appeal to amateur photographers looking for more flexible, enjoyable and portable alternatives to the traditional photo album."
