As part of its #Liveforthestory campaign in Nigeria, leaders in imaging and business solutions, Canon Central and North Africa have introduced the lightest digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera Canon EOS 6D Mark II, into the Nigerian market. The camera will help photographers unlock their full creative potential and explore all the different avenues of digital photography in a bid to reiterate Canon’s commitment to the “Shoot-Remember-Share” ecosystem which is tied to its consumer- bound range of products.

The EOS 6D Mark II camera is designed for advanced-amateur photographers looking to improve their creative photography skills. The camera allows photographers to shoot with a Full-frame CMOS sensor DSLR camera to capture beautiful high-quality portraits and striking landscapes, even in low-light situations. Resistant to dust and moisture, the camera is also ideal for on-the-go shooting and gives users the power to approach their photography in new, exciting ways while maintaining reliable high performance to unleash their creative ambitions.

The 6D Mark II is a lightweight, full-frame DSLR with a 26.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor, which offers users unrivalled image quality and improved performance. Its high dynamic range ensures exceptional exposure latitude allowing users to push their boundaries when shooting in bright light conditions. The improved ISO 40,000, expanding to ISO 102,400, allows flexibility so documentary photographers can snap scenes with the confidence that details will be retained even in the darkest nights. Combined with the latest DIGIC 7 processor EOS 6D Mark II’s technology creates high quality files straight from the camera.

Moreover, with EOS 6D Mark II users can also command greater control over their creative vision thanks to the 45 point AF system, which can be customised and allows more precise tracking. The upgrade to EOS 6D Mark II gives users the possibility to capture difficult scenarios with fast, spontaneous action. Alongside DIGIC 7’s image processing advancements, the EOS 6D Mark II can also predict the movement of a subject across the frame and respond rapidly. When combined with the 6.5 fps, EOS 6D Mark II opens a whole new range of possibilities.

Speaking about the new camera, Sales and Marketing Director B2C, Canon Central and North Africa (CCNA), Somesh Adukia said. “We are constantly working to better understand the sentiments of our customers in Nigeria and introducing cameras such as the EOS 6D Mark II enables us to better serve them. Our ‘closer to customers’ strategy has been one of the pillars of our growth in the African market and with the launch of this camera we aim to encourage our customers to tell more stories using imagery.”

The product is tailored to fit the needs of photographers taking their first picture or video with a DSLR camera or those looking to make the jump to a Full-Frame sensor camera. The new and improved autofocus is way ahead of the previous generation and it performs extremely well, even in very low-light situations”. He added.

Creating products since 1937, Canon’s reputation is centred on quality, reliability and innovation.

How to Protect Your Debit Card From Fraud

Published

on

 

Debit card fraud is increasing on a daily basis because it is one of the easiest ways to get your hands on cash and at the same pay for online transactions.

The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Automated Teller Machine from selected banks across the country recorded transactions valued at N39.15 trillion in the fourth quarter of 2018.

It said that the N39.15 trillion was derived from 616,528,697 transactions recorded as data on “Electronic Payment Channels in the Nigeria Banking Sector” during the period.

Regardless of this seamlessness and due to increased dependence on debit cards, you have to be circumspect as there are online and offline thieves desperately wanting to steal your information.

They will have unauthorised access to your account if you are careless and you will lose your hard-earned money.

With this understanding, here are ways to protect your debit card from fraud.

Be careful when you use your debit card online

Many pay for their online transactions with their debit cards. However, before you punch in the numbers on your card and make a payment, ensure that the website is safe and secure. If you suspect anything, simply do not use your card. If what you are buying is important, contact the customer service team of the platform you are buying from.

Use ATM at a bank’s premises

Today, you will find ATMs at different locations that are not at the bank’s premises. For whatever reason, you should not use such an ATM. It is advisable to visit the one at the bank. In case of anything, you can easily walk into the banking hall to resolve any issues or lay a complaint.

Protect Your PIN

The way you handle your Personal Identity Number (PIN) can go a long way in determining the degree of your account security. Whenever you perform a transaction, guard your debit card PIN jealously as exposure can be fatal. Be warned.

Check your card activities regularly

No matter how thorough and protective you are with your debit card and your PIN, you should always check your account activities. There is a tendency for you not to check because nothing has happened to your card. Be proactive and always check your account activities.

Report suspicious activities to your bank

If you notice any suspicious activities with your account or card, do not hesitate to report to your bank as soon as possible. You can reach your bank by calling them, sending them a direct message on social media and chatting them live on their website.

Jumia Women Rally Support For New Mothers

Published

 To commemorate this year’s Pan-African Women’s Day and in line with the global theme which addresses maternal and neonatal mortality in Africa, the female staff of Jumia Nigeria have rallied support for new mothers and other patients who couldn’t meet the discharge requirement as a result of unpaid medical bills at the Ikorodu general hospital by helping them to offset their outstanding bills.

As a result, the patients have now been discharged and equipped with financial support to cater for the new babies. The contributions were channeled through the ‘Visit A Hospital Today’ non governmental organisation (NGO) in Lagos.

The African Women’s Day, created by the African Union is commemorated on July 31st of every year to advocate for quality maternity services for disadvantaged women who continue to die needlessly in underserved communities, and to curb poor quality of health services, poor accessibility and weak referral systems for African women.

Jumia’s public relations and communications manager, Mr Olukayode Kolawole who described the financial intervention on behalf of the new mothers as kind and thoughtful, said: “when I heard about the plight of these new mothers and other patients who couldn’t meet the hospital discharge requirement because of their outstanding medical bills, I sought for support from our female staff, especially those who are mothers to contribute towards raising the sum. This collective effort towards helping other women in need through their financial resources reached far beyond what we set out to raise. Now, these women have been discharged and the babies are receiving the needed motherly affection.”

Founder of Visit-A-Hospital NGO, Miss Aderonke Rene Ahmed said hundreds of new mothers and women are always stuck in most hospitals because of lack of funds to pay for their medical bills. “Every week, we’re always in different hospitals providing financial support for these patients. We thank the wonderful women at Jumia Nigeria for sponsoring this month’s hospital visit.” Until now, these new mothers had been stuck at the general hospital with their babies for a few weeks because they couldn’t pay their medical bills. “Jumia’s intervention provided succor for them in the nick of time,”she added.
