Gather your memories: Keenai is a ‘one-stop’ solution to manage photos across devices

Ricoh Innovations has released Keenai, a new photo service designed to be a “one-stop” solution for organizing photos and videos across all of your mobile devices.

Even if you’re not a photographer, odds are you have at least a few cameras sitting around your house, either in the form of a smartphone, tablet, action camera, or the old point and shoot that’s wasting away in the closet.

Organizing all of the photos from those machines can be a pain. To fix that, Ricoh’s Keenai service hopes to streamline to process of photo organization and storage by automatically uploading all of your photos and videos to a centralized service that’s accessible from all of your devices.


For only $5 a month, Ricoh says it will automatically backup unlimited original resolution photos, including RAW images and 360-degree photos. Once backed up, an image recognition system will automatically tag the images, making searching for long-lost photos down the road much easier.


On smartphones and tablets, this is done through a dedicated application that’s available on iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile. On desktops, there’s an accompanying application that automatically imports photos when a camera or memory card is plugged in. If you happen to have a Wi-Fi-enabled camera or memory card (such as an EyeFi Mobi or Toshiba Flashair Wi-Fi SD card), you can directly upload images from your camera, saving you an extra step.


You can review all photos in your collection through the applications, as well as in a browser using Keenai’s web app.

You can find out more about Keenai and download the apps for your respective devices on the Keenai website.

Sony A7 III mirorless camera is $300 off for Black Friday
Sony Alpha a7 III Mirrorless front view.

There are a lot of great Best Buy Black Friday deals going on right now, and whether you're looking for TVs, laptops, or even headphones, there's a little something for everybody. Of course, many folks may not realize that Best Buy has some fantastic deals on high-end photography gear, such as this Sony Alpha a7 III mirrorless camera. While it usually goes for a whopping $2,200, Best Buy had brought it down to $1,900, and while that relatively doesn't seem like much, you could always spend the $300 savings on a new lens.

Why you should buy the Sony Alpha a7 III
The Sony Alpha a7 III is a camera with so much tech that it might as well be three different cameras. It has excellent dynamic range, low-light performance, and high-speed performance, and the full-frame sensors make the images look absolutely stunning. Interestingly, the a7 III manages to do an excellent job at both low and high ISOs, the latter of which can go as high as 51,200 non-boosted, which, granted, adds a lot of noise, but noise reduction helps with that. As for the video, well, sadly, it's not as impressive, at least in terms of advancements in image quality, and while it can do 8-bit 4K at 30 frames per second, it's no longer ahead of the pack in that regard, like the Panasonic Lumix GH5 is with its 400Mbps 10-bit codec and 60-fps 4K.
