Canon launches handy PowerShot Zoom monocular camera

  • Like it did with its carabiner-packing Ivy Rec outdoor camera, Canon has launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund production of a quirky handheld point-and-shoot camera called the PowerShot Zoom, though this time it’s limited to Japan only.
  • Canon imagines the handheld camera being useful when wanting to capture memories of sporting events, or going out bird watching, and so on.
  • At this stage, there’s no indication that a commercial product will be released further down the line, or if such a device would make it out of Japan, but the Ivy Rec was originally listed on this platform so we may well see the same thing happen with the PowerShot Zoom.
