An estimated 80% of digital camera users suffer from inconveniences with accessing photos from their cameras.
What it does
Portal is a service that automatically upload photos from the digital camera to a database presented on the platform that can be accessed from anywhere in the world. Unclear photos can be filtered out based on blurriness, photos can be edited, and shared on social media platforms all in one platform.
How we built it
Platform uses Canon's CCAPI to automatically fetch media from the digital camera. The content is then stored using Filestack and edited using the Filestack's API.
Challenges we ran into
The unstable public WiFi connection caused significant latency in media uploading. The CCAPI has limited usages, and caused compatibility issues on MacOS (could not set up).
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Released a functional prototype within the limited time frame, despite challenges.

What's next for Portal
