Canon unveiled a mini telescopic camera in Japan dubbed as Canon Powershot Zoom. The sales of portable sports cameras and special cameras have been increased in recent years instead of Digital Cameras. The camera went on sale immediately after the launch through crowdfunding.
Canon Powershot Zoom Specifications and Features
According to a Gizmochina report, The Canon Powershot Zoom is lighter than the smartphones nowadays and weighs only 145g. It looks similar to the traditional monocular telescope and can be used one-handedly due to its small size and lightweight. The eyepiece provided in the camera is an electronic viewfinder. On top and at the bottom of the camera are physical buttons to adjust the focus and start shooting.
The camera has a built-in 12.1 megapixel 1/3 inch sensor. This sensor is even smaller than mobile camera sensors. Canon Powershot Zoom supports continuous shooting at 10 frames per second and video recording up to 1080p/30fps, as well as facial recognition. The camera also comes with a waterproof, dustproof and drop-proof build making it suitable for use during outdoor sports.
