Canon Wants You To Fund Its Small Clippable Camera


Canon has introduced a small clippable camera called the Ivy Rec. Meant for outdoor use, the camera is built into a keychain carabiner and is roughly the size of a USB drive. It can connect to a mobile device wirelessly through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and show a live preview. The company is crowdfunding this project through Indiegogo.

There’s a 13 megapixel 1/3-inch CMOS sensor in the Ivy Rec which is capable of recording 1080p video at 60 frames per second. It’s waterproof for up to 30 minutes in up to three feet of water. The empty square space that you see is essentially the viewfinder. There’s also a single dial at the back for switching between the modes.

Further details on Sony's alleged hexa camera smartphone emerges

A week ago we reported on a wild rumour that Sony might be planning to launch an Xperia smartphone with a total of six cameras on the rear. The news isn't completely in the realms of fantasy as Sony has confirmed previously that it is partnering with Light to develop multi-camera smartphones in the future.

Nikon Confirms New 'pro' Mirrorless Camera Is In The Works

Nikon Confirms New 'Pro' Mirrorless Camera Is In The Works

Last year, Nikon launched their brand new Z-series of digital cameras. These cameras are Nikon’s latest and renewed efforts at tackling mirrorless cameras and so far, initial reviews have been largely positive. However, if you feel that maybe the Z7 might not be “pro” enough for your needs, Nikon has you covered.

We had heard rumors last year that a D5-equivalent for Nikon’s mirrorless cameras could be in the works, and it turns out the rumors were true. According to a report from Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun, Nikon’s CEO confirmed that the company is working on a new “pro” mirrorless camera that would be the equivalent to the D5 DSLR.

Security camera footage leads to suspect's arrest

Footage from a series of security cameras has led to the arrest of a man who allegedly attacked a police officer and took his loaded handgun in Osaka Prefecture, western Japan, on Sunday.

Police say Yujiro Iimori appeared at a supermarket in Suita City about two and a half hours after the attack. The store is roughly five kilometers north of the crime scene.

Nikon Could Have A Mid-range Mirrorless Camera In The Works For $900

Nikon Could Have A Mid-Range Mirrorless Camera In The Works For $900

With the launch of the new Nikon Z-series of full-frame mirrorless cameras, it saw the company change up its strategy and approach to mirrorless cameras. Unlike the company’s previous attempts, the new Z-series seems to be much more well-received. Unfortunately, they do not come cheap, making it a bit inaccessible for those who aren’t necessarily professionals.

However, there is some good news because according to a report from Nikkei, it seems that Nikon could actually have a new mirrorless camera in the works. This model is said to be a mid-range model that could cost $900, making it more affordable than what the company has to offer at the moment.

Panasonic's Latest Mirrorless Camera Can Shoot Videos In 6k

Panasonic's Latest Mirrorless Camera Can Shoot Videos In 6K

Last year hot on the heels of Nikon and Canon announcing their own full-frame mirrorless cameras, Panasonic decided to hop on board as well with their new Panasonic Lumix S-series of cameras. Now it looks like the company is back with their latest offering in the form of the Panasonic Lumix S1H.

It is clear that the S1H is being aimed more towards videographers. This is because the camera is capable at recording at 6K resolution. It does have a bit of an odd aspect ratio of 3:2, but for those who want something more standard, it can also record at 5.9K at 16:9 at 30fps. Exactly how many of us would need to shoot in 6K, let alone watch videos in 6K, are probably not that many.

Honda E Ev To Get Camera Side Mirrors For Production

Honda e EV to get camera side mirrors for production

Swapping out side mirrors for cameras is slowly becoming popular in the automotive industry, and Honda is next to hop on board with a production car. Just announced today, Honda says the camera side mirrors in the Honda e prototype will be carried over to the production version of the compact electric hatchback. Similar to every other car that gets this "mirror technology," it will not be sold in the U.S.

Lexus was first to implement the tech on the ES sold in Japan, and Audi is next with its E-Tron electric crossover. Honda didn't provide good photos of the interior screens used to stream what the cameras feed it, but we imagine it'll look similar to the prototype interior we saw previously. The side pods on the doors look a lot like Honda LaneWatch on steroids, which is a technology we actually get here. That tech implements a camera into the passenger-side mirror and supplies a feed to the infotainment screen when you activate the right turn signal.

Sony Camera Sensors Could Come Integrated With Ai In The Future

Sony Camera Sensors Could Come Integrated With AI In The Future

When it comes to a camera’s capabilities, there are many factors involved that helps create a high-quality image. For example, the lens of the camera needs to be good, the software used to process the image, and the sensors used by the camera as well. However, it seems that in the future, there is a chance that Sony’s camera sensors could get a boost with AI.

This is based on an overview of Sony’s semiconductor business where Sony talks about how they plan to integrate AI processor directly into its sensor hardware. According to the overview, these sensors seem to be more targeted towards mobile, automotives, and industrial purposes, but as Sony Alpha Rumors points out, there is a chance that this tech could trickle down to Sony’s cameras as well.

Fujifilm Gfx100 Medium Format Mirrorless Camera Announced

Fujifilm GFX100 Medium Format Mirrorless Camera Announced

Several years ago, Fujifilm decided to dive into the medium format camera market by launching the Fujifilm GFX 50S. The company has since released new models and successors since, but this could possibly be the company’s biggest update to yet. Fujifilm has announced a new mirrorless camera in the form of the GFX100.

This will be part of the GFX medium format lineup (although we’re not sure if this will replace the GFX 50 series or it will exist alongside it), but it will be a camera with a whopping 102MP sensor. Given the megapixel count, there is a very good chance that this camera is aimed more at professionals who have the need for such a camera, rather than your average photographer or enthusiast.

Alleged Olympus TG-6 Rugged Compact Camera Specs Leaked

The thing about cameras is that some of them can be quite fragile. This means that using them in extreme weather conditions or settings might not be the best idea. However, Olympus has over the years released cameras part of its Tough TG lineup that have been designed to weather more extreme conditions.

Sony Rx0 Ii Action Camera Launched

Sony RX0 II Action Camera Launched

When it comes to action cameras, GoPro has been more or less the leader in that space. However Sony has been challenging GoPro in that space and with the company’s latest offering, the Sony RX0 II, it looks like they could make a pretty compelling argument.

The RX0 II, as its name implies, will be the successor to the Sony RX0 that was launched in 2017. It has been about 2 years since the previous launch so it was due for a refresh. What makes Sony’s offering interesting is how it actually comes with a tiny flip-up display which will be useful when trying to capture weird angles or selfies.
