Canon is sending out invitations to an invite-only press event on August 21st, 2013. The invite itself has a cloud design on it, suggesting that the company is preparing to launch some kind of cloud-based service.
CanonWatch writes that it will most likely be the official public launch of Project 1709, the cloud photo storage and sharing site that Canon announced back in September 2012. That service is currently in private beta. If this rumor is true, we’re guessing Canon will have a better name than “Project 1709″ for the site.
