    Guinness World Records: Canon Prints Longest Digital Photo in the World.
    It’s official: On the Schattenbergschanze, where the world’s best ski jumpers hunt for records during the Four Hills Tournament, Canon printed the world’s longest digital photo on September 26th, officially setting a Guinness World Records record.
    Canon Enters Guinness World Records By Printing World's Longest Digital

    Despite the adverse weather conditions, with temperatures close to freezing point, continuous rain and the first snowflakes this year, Canon managed to print the longest digitally printed photo in the world in front of the jury on Saturday afternoon. The printing process with the large-format photo printer “imagePROGRAF PRO-6100”, which consumed around 1.37 liters of ink, took almost 16 hours and reached the unbelievable length of 109.04 meters.

    For this purpose, the printer was placed at the highest point of the ski jump and continuously supplied with special paper from the manufacturer Ilford via a roll so that the pressure could slowly slide down towards the valley. Under the watchful eyes of the official record judges, media representatives and the Vice President of the German Bundestag and patron of the Oberstdorf Photo Summit Claudia Roth, a collage of landscape images, photos of citizens and famous personalities from Oberstdorf as well as sports and historical photos was printed.

    Canon also supported the campaign with a comprehensive donation program in which a total of 5,000 euros was collected for “Schaut hin!”, A regional association for child and victim support.

    “The eighth Oberstdorf Photo Summit was a complete success for Canon,” says Markus Koch, European Document Solutions Group Director at Canon Germany. “We are particularly pleased to do something good with pictures and our products in accordance with our principle. A big thank you goes to everyone who supported the fundraising campaign, the people responsible for the eighth Oberstdorf Photo Summit, the Ilford company for the weatherproof paper, and the Oberstdorf community, which provided us with the impressive backdrop for our longest photo print in the world. “
