It seems the Canon PowerShot PICK, Canon’s first AI-augmented photo camera for consumers will be released within days.

DC Watch reports that peorders for the Canon PowerShot PICK will start January 29th, 2021. Japanese crowdfunding platform Makuake is where preorders can be placed. It’s not Canon’s first concept camera.

The Canon PowerShot PICK can autonomously decide when to shoot a photo, for instance by recognizing a person’s face expression (smile). Canon touts this as a feature able to capture family photos at the right time. The lens can even move up or down, left or right, and zoom, all done automatically and driven by artificial intelligence. Needles to say, the camera comes with filters, a dedicated app, and all kind of sharing functionality. The Canon PowerShot PICK body is 90mm in height, and 60mm in width and depth.

So far these are the rumored specifications:

  • 12mp 1/2.3″ CMOS Sensor
  • 19-57mm 35mm equivalent zoom lens (4x zoom)
  • Pans 170°
  • Tilt of 110°
  • Electronic Image Stabilization
  • Dust and Waterproofing
  • Battery life of about 2.5 hours
  • Records data to microSD
  • USB-C Port
  • Both Wifi and Bluetooth connectivity

A video taken at The Photography Show in 2018 shows the camera.

More to come soon.
