After recent leaks and rumors, Canon PowerShot Pick is now officially launched. The tiny AI-powered camera demonstrates the power of face tracking and artificial intelligence Canon has developed. While it’s not the fanciest camera out there, it can be useful for video creators who play as “a one-man band,” as well in some everyday situations. The price and the specs are now out too, so let’s see what this li’l smart camera has to offer.
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.
