The CP+ show in Yokohama, Japan started today and the Canon booth is full of the usual gear, along with some concepts that Canon has shown off in the past and mentioned in their last fiscal reports. The folks at DCWatch decided to show off the concepts.
The concept cameras are for various consumer needs. The first one is the Soto Asobi Camera, which is aimed at the action camera user as it’s waterproof and will survive a 6-foot drop onto concrete. Pricing for these cameras will be around $100.
The Intelligent Compact Camera looks to be similar to Google’s Clip cameras, as it’s designed to shoot automatically. Unlike the clips, this camera has pan and tilt functionality.
The Kids Mission Camera is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a digital camera designed for the young ones in the home. There is some solid build quality to survive bumps as well as unique features to help learn photography.
Another interesting camera uses a 100-400mm equivalent lens to help one experience easy telephoto shooting. This camera can be synced up with a smartphone to use as a display.
