Tempe, Arizona (NAPSI) - Whether you’re a college freshman off to school for the first time or a returning student getting ready for a new semester, preparation is key.

One way to start is by making sure you have the technology you need to capture all the new memories you’ll be making.

That means choosing a camera, camcorder and printer that can help to make sure your college experience is remembered forever.

It Starts With the Camera

A picture may be worth a thousand words but the right picture can be priceless. These days, that means in addition to having the capacity to take great pictures, the camera should make it easy to share photos with family and friends as soon as you take them.

For example, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 320 HS digital camera features built-in wireless capabilities. That means brilliant images and videos can be captured and quickly shared by signing up with Canon iMAGE Gateway. This allows for linking to sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

The camera is equipped with a 16.1-megapixel sensor and the ability to capture Full HD 1080p video.

Get the Whole Story

When it comes to classes, taking notes by hand or using an audio recorder is very last century. Now it’s possible to capture every vivid detail of your professor’s lesson in Full HD video for up to three hours with the Canon VIXIA HF R30.

With the camera’s 51x advanced zoom, users can get a close-up view of the action while the SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization and Intelligent IS provide assurance that the highlights will be steady and clear.

Let’s Make it Last

Once all of these images and videos are captured, the next step is to bring them to life. The Canon PIXMA MG4220 Wireless Photo All-In-One Printer and SELPHY CP900 Wireless Compact Photo Printer make it easy to print beautiful images thanks to their wireless capabilities.

When using the Canon Easy-PhotoPrint application with compatible Apple and Android devices, users can unlock the images trapped on the devices to be printed in a short amount of time.

With “My Image Garden” software, photos stored on computers can be easily organized into three categories—Calendar, Event and People—so they can be easily accessed.

Canon has also developed the “Print Your Days” Facebook application. It allows those users, while on their Facebook page, to print one single photo or combine a maximum of five images into one collage from their Facebook photo albums.
