The World Is Your Oyster and Now You Can “REC” It With New Canon IVY REC Clippable Outdoor Camera

MELVILLE, NY, October 10, 2019 – Your activity of choice should not limit you on your quest to #RECtheWorld – from jumping on a trampoline, biking down a mountainside, screaming on a roller coaster or feeling the beat at a music festival. Down for just about anything, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is excited to announce the IVY REC Clippable Outdoor Camera. Made to go anywhere while capturing those larger-than-life moments – this new camera is made for adventure.

IVY REC Specs

Great for the outdoors, the clippable and wearable design allows users to wear it on a belt or bag and the clip doubles as a viewfinder – eliminating the potential to crack a screen. Simple to use with one click capture for both photos and videos, the IVY REC pairs with the optional Canon Mini Cam app1. When paired with a compatible mobile device2 such as a smartphone, you can keep informed about important settings including battery life of the IVY REC camera, remaining image capacity for the MicroSD card, video recording resolution (720p or 1080p)3, and image size. You can also use the app as a live viewfinder to capture photos and videos, and even use it as a remote shutter with a timer. For photos and videos, the app lets you wirelessly transfer them to your compatible mobile device to print and share. The go-anywhere camera is also waterproof4, shockproof5 and lightweight.

Canon Using Indiegogo To Crowdfund The IVY REC “flippable, go anywhere” Camera

Ivy Rec

Canon using a crowdfunding platform is new to me.

Back in February Canon introduced five concept cameras doing CP+. Among those is the IVY REC, an ultra compact point&shot camera described as “flippable, go anywhere camera”.

The IVY REC is very small, more or less the size of an USB stick. It has a 13MP CMOS sensor and records 1080/60p video. It’s rugged, waterproof and will survive when hitting concrete from 2 meters. Its unique construction eliminates the viewfinder and uses the frame of the body as rangefinder. The exterior part of the body can be changed to one’s taste. Wireless connectivity via the CanonMini Cam App is also on board.

For the time being there are o information on the price or when the IVY REC will be available. The Indiegogo landing page is pretty empty at the time of writing. However, it’s stated that early birds will get 30% off the retail price.
