Canon launches PowerShot Zoom camera in other markets after Japan

Canon launched a pocket-sized Canon PowerShot Zoom camera in Japan nearly a month ago. Following the success of Canon’s latest monocular looking camera, the company is poised to launch it on the US market. The new Canon PowerShot Zoom is a portable telephoto camera that allows people to pack lightly.

Canon says the PowerShot Zoom was designed to grab the attention of hikers and birdwatchers. But the PowerShot Zoom can also be a great device to carry for spectators to sporting events.

PowerShot Zoom is available in a single color option – white. The camera is equipped with an OLED-based electronic viewfinder, a 1/3 inch 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 8 image processor. Other features include an ISO scale of 100-3200, an optical 100- lens. 400mm F5.6-6.3, an 800mm digital zoom, an AF system with facial recognition and 4-axis image stabilization.

As for video specifications, Canon PowerShot Zoom can capture fullHD video at 30 fps. The camera is also equipped with a maximum burst of 10 fps. The tiny camera device, which weighs around 144 grams, boasts a microSDXC card slot and USB-C port.

The physical interface of PowerShot Zoom appears to be simple. There are Zoom, Power and Menu buttons near the front, and camera users get a shutter button for photos and videos on the back.

The Canon PowerShot Zoom telephoto lens will be available from late November in the US for $ 299.99. There are no official statements from Canon as to whether the latest PowerShot Zoom camera will be launched in India or not. Canon is probably taking longer and would prefer to release the small PowerShot Zoom at a slow pace for other markets.
