Luckily, if you have one of a select list of Canon cameras, you now have a solution to this nail-biting issue.

There's now a new integration with Google Photos that allows for automatic image backups over Wi-Fi. Google and Canon have worked together to integrate Google Photos into the app that's currently available on both Android and iOS.
