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.
It seems that Canon’s CE-SAT-1B camera satellite was not meant to be. The BBC reports that Electron, the rocket launched by American company Rocket Lab, failed in its late ascent and that all satellite payloads are “assumed to have been destroyed” which includes Canon’s new imaging satellite
The CE-SAT-1B satellite was the one we told you about a couple of weeks ago that, for some reason, was loaded with a Canon 5D Mark III and a PowerShot S110. It was a small satellite, measuring only 50x50x70cm, but would offer a 1-metre ground resolution view of the earth’s surface from 600km above its surface.
Canon is launching a satellite. It’s the CE-SAT 1B (Canon Electric Satellite 1B). It’s an experimental Earth observing microsatellite developed and built by Canon Electronics. The satellite is quite small, measuring only 50x50x70cm and it’s based on the Hodoyoshi-1 satellite, launched in 2014.
Canon sent the original CE-SAT 1 into space in 2017, so the idea is nothing new, but this time we’re hearing about the cameras that are going to be included on the satellite. And strangely, it’s the Canon 5D Mark III and (even more strangely) the Canon PowerShot S110. It seems like an odd combination when Canon’s about to make a big splash with the EOS R5.
Earlier today, Canon proudly lifted the veil on five new Powershot cameras, ranging from entry-level point-and-shoots to mid=level superzooms.[Read More…]
Aiming to make sharing, storing and viewing photos and videos easier than ever, Canon have released the Connect Station CS100, a storage device that is capable of connecting to multiple compatible imaging devices.
The CS100 will allow users to download photos and videos using the built-in WiFi and NFC capabilities or via the SD and CF slots. Compatible cameras can also be connected via a USB port.
Not focusing all its attention on the Connect Station, Canon has also released five new cameras from the popular SX and ELPH series.
