Canon to announce the PowerShot Pick next week

Earlier this week I reported that Canon would be bringing their AI-powered concept PowerShot camera to market. This camera has appeared as multiple concepts since 2018.

DC Watch is reporting the new camera will be called the PowerShot Pick and preorders will begin via the Japanese crowdfunding site Makuake on January 29, 2021. This was the same way Canon first released the PowerShot Zoom, so I expect that the PowerShot Pick will become available globally shortly after.

The PowerShot Pick is powered by the marketing “AI”. The camera will be able to do things like analyze a person’s face and decide when the best time to take a photograph and will do it automatically. Another marketing term that Canon will use for the PowerShot Pick is that it’s a “memorial photographer” (the translation could be off).

There will likely be many other “AI” features with the dedicated app for iOS and Android.

PowerShot Pick Specifications (based on the concepts and could change)

  • 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
  • Height: 90mm
  • Width: 60mm

PTZ cameras with NDI integration are booming anyway.
Bridge them from professional use to leisure application
and you have another winner.

I would much rather see something like a G7X with a 1" sensor and computational photography.

With the current state of millions working remotely - from their homes, etc. - I see this as a smart move, a far better option than using your Canon DSLR or MILC as a webcam.

They should make it extendable so it can be put on a table and extenable to eye height level .
If it was AI from the perspective of giving people flawless skin live, face tracking or an attachable ring light Canon could sell alot of them

Canon/Axis makes security cameras, so the product makes sense.
I think the largest image sensor surveillance camera is APS-C followed by 4/3 attached to an EF Lens
