Canon launched a new Power Shot ZOOM compact camera in Japan for telephoto shooting. The monocular-style camera can shoot up to 400mm (800mm with digital zoom). Here are the details:


  • Canon Marketing Japan has begun selling a new type of digital camera, “Power Shot ZOOM,” at Makuake, a crowing funding company.
  • With a palm-sized super-telephoto camera, you can switch between 100mm and 400mm equivalent in 35mm format, and if you also use a digital zoom, you can shoot 800mm equivalent super-telephoto.
  • Equipped with an optical image stabilization mechanism, you can shoot with less blur even in the super telephoto range. It can also be used as a telescope.
  • The sensor is a 1/3 inch CMOS sensor (effective 12.1 million pixels), and the image processing engine is equipped with the latest DIGIC 8. The main body size is W33.4 x H50.8 x D103.2 mm, and weighs about 145 g (including battery and memory card). The body does not have a dustproof and dripproof structure.
  • It sells 1,000 units at a price of 31,460 yen including tax. Only the first 500 people had a set with a quick charger, but it was sold out as soon as possible.
