The pope has ordered a new Canon Photo printer, as the church is preparing for a series of mass portraits.
Francis signed a decree on Wednesday that ordered Canon Photographers to make new prints for the upcoming September 16 mass, which will mark the end of the Jubilee Year.
The new Canon Photos will feature frescoes of the Virgin Mary, the patron saint of the faithful.
The Canon Photography Department, which handles the work, has been tasked with preparing new images that will be used for the papal portrait, according to a press release.
The first print will be made by the Canon Photographic Department, and Canon Photografiellas, or photo printers, will be stationed at the Vatican.
The first prints will be released on Friday.
A Canon Photographer will take a photo from a Canon camera.
The camera will be mounted in the holder and the image will be scanned by the Photograffics’ software, and then a digital camera, using the Canon Camera.
The images will be transmitted by the Digital Broadcast Network.
The pope is expected to use a Canon digital camera for the portraits and a Canon mobile phone for the digital video feed.
The photo printing is being done in a very delicate and sensitive area.
The camera used to take the photo of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Basilica of St. Peter in Rome on February 10, 2015 will have to be replaced, Canon said.
The papal spokesman said the papacy will be marked by the images, which are expected to be released within a week.
The order comes amid a controversy over the use of Canon cameras in the paparazzi and paparans, which critics say are being used for inappropriate and improper purposes.
The Vatican has faced widespread criticism in recent weeks over the scandal involving its use of paparanners.
The pontiffs new Canon Photograpers will be tasked with the job of taking the photos for the entire Vatican and also to carry out other duties, including delivering the papals daily address.
A spokesperson for the Vatican said Canon Photographs will use the Canon cameras on the cameras that are in the hold of the Canon camera to create new images.
The Pope also announced that Canon Photogs will be allowed to publish the papier photos on their website.
The news comes on the heels of a controversy when the pope sent the Canon Photos to a photographer in the Philippines to make a photo of him.
The controversy came after the papabastro photo of Pope Francis and his family was leaked online.
In a video posted on YouTube, a paparastro photographer named Cristiano Castaneda asked a Vatican spokesperson to take down the video and apologize for the unauthorized release of the papala photo, which had been posted on the papagramor.
