Canon has taken steps to get one of its creative concept cameras it showed off earlier this year at CP+ 2019. the japanese company is hoping to make a reality its vision of a tiny clippable camera that’s about the size of a usb flash drive, aka the IVY REC.
The IVY REC, ‘clippable, go anywhere camera’ is an ultra-compact point-and-shoot featuring a built-in carabiner. it features a 13-megapixel 1/3-inch CMOS sensor capable of recording 1080 / 60p video.
Making it ideal for outdoor use, canon has designed its casing to be shockproof and waterproof down to a depth of 1m/3.3ft for up to 30 minutes. while there’s no LCD screen or a traditional viewfinder, canon says the square clip of the camera doubles as a viewfinder.
Canon is hoping to bring the IVY REC to life via crowd funding. there’s no pricing information or details on when the crowd funding campaign will go live, but the landing page does note ‘early birds’ will receive upwards of 30% off the retail price. those who are interested can sign up to receive updates on the campaign’s landing page.
