Canon has finally announced the Canon PowerShot PICK PTZ camera in the USA. This is Canon’s little AI-powered camera that was initially shown off as a concept camera way back in 2018. We got to take a look at it for ourselves at The Photography Show that year and it was eventually announced three years later in February 2021 – but only in Japan. Now, though, it’s come to the USA.
The PowerShot PICK is named as such as it uses AI to intelligently try to figure out what it should record and when it picks something it thinks is worth recording, that’s what it does. As a PTZ camera, it features pan, tilt and zoom, with face-detection and tracking features to follow subjects it finds interesting and automatically moves and zooms to follow the action.
