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.
