According to DC Watch, Canon Marketing Japan Inc. is expected to officially announce and start pre-orders for the upcoming PowerShot PICK (that’s the name of their AI-powered camera, apparently) at 12 noon on January 29th – But only for those in Japan. It’s being launched on the Japanese crowdfunding platform, Makuake, so those of us outside of Japan are still going to have a bit of a wait on our hands.
The camera is based on a prototype we saw in person as a concept camera at The Photography Show in 2018. Even back then, it was a neat little camera with some impressive features. Judging from the current leaked photos, it appears to have had something of a slight redesign since then, and it looks like it’ll be available in either black or white.
