Canon’s IVY REC Is A Wearable Camera That Shoots Stills And Video

First IVY camera can shoot Full HD video and 13-megapixel stills...

Photographers know you should never leave home without a camera and now Canon has helped us fulfil this mantra by launching the IVY REC, a tiny wearable camera that can capture stills and video.

The tiny IVY REC weighs just 90g.

Designed to be clipped on to a belt, bag or collar, the IVY REC is available in four colours (Riptide blue, Dragon fruit pink, avocado green and stone grey) and sees Canon offer up a refreshing alternative to standard DSLRs.

The clip doubles up as a viewfinder.

The IVY REC boasts rugged credentials and is waterproof up to 30 minutes at a depth of 2 metres in fresh water (IP68 rating) and shockproof from a height of two metres. The innovative design even enables the clip to be used as a viewfinder.

The fun camera is designed to be taken anywhere.

Enabling photographers to capture 13-megapixels stills or Full HD video up to 60fps, the IVY REC is an affordable alternative to action cameras already on the market and also offers image editing features and Remote Live View via a smartphone app.

The rugged camera is water and shockproof.

Tipping the scales at just 90g, the lightweight IVY REC has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and can be powered up on the go via USB-charging. Images and video are saved to a Micro SD card. Available from October, the IVY REC will be priced at $129.

Images and video taken on the IVY REC can be transferred to your smartphone.
