We’ve been following the PowerShot Pick’s journey for a while now, as we first saw this attractive smart compact camera at the Photography Show in 2018. Since then, it’s gone on sale in Japan, considered “your own personal photographer”.
Get the signal from the best PTZ cameras (opens in a new tab), it uses artificial intelligence to automatically detect and track objects in a scene. This makes it a great companion, such as a family picnic, where you might want to capture the whole family enjoying a day out without someone having to take all the pictures. pics (or awkward timer settings).
Likewise, it is very suitable for parties or events where it can capture everyone’s happy moments. It has even been suggested that it could be attached to a wedding photographer’s tripod, to get shots that would otherwise be missed.
Even more bizarre is the Canon Posture Fit, which looks like a character from a Pixar movie. It’s not a camera device, but instead uses Canon’s camera technology to track your spine position. As a result, this irresistibly cute device will monitor how you’re sitting at your desk – and alert you when your posture isn’t good or you’ve been sitting for too long.
Whether you’re back in the office to get used to sitting at your desk or you’re working remotely from your kitchen or dining table, Posture Fit is designed to make sure you’re sitting the right way and not for too long.
When it needs to ask you to move, it wobbles back and forth cutely like a pet trying to get your attention – making it impossible to ignore, unlike pop-ups. usually on your phone from traditional health tracking apps.
It may seem like a strange arena for Canon, but photographers and videographers spend as much time sitting at their desks as they do taking pictures. And in a world where homes are increasingly smart, with Alexa and other devices improving our lives, it’s only fitting that Canon is using its imaging expertise to be part of the way. this smart life.
Canon executives were at The Photography Show and were looking for feedback on these concepts, so make your way to the N500, N400 and make your voice heard. !
