It's always fun when companies with millions or billions of revenue take crowdfunding to launch their next product.
A final example is Canon, which took advantage of Indiegogo to raise funds for Ivy Rec, an outdoor camera made in a key ring clip. Canon says the camera is now ready to start shipping. It will land in the United States at October 16 for $ 129.99.
Ivy Rec is small enough to resemble a USB stick, but it is packed with tons of more technology, from Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, to connect wirelessly to the CanonMini Cam app, to the CMOS 13 sensor / megapixel camera 1 // 3-inch recording 1080p video (60fps). It has a fixed focus lens that takes photos in 4: 3 or 1: 1 aspect comparison. For video, you can make a 16: 9 aspect ratio.
Canon says that the free space inside the clip works like a viewfinder, and the back button is for switching between modes. It is also water resistant up to three feet for 30 minutes. Oh, and the 660 mAh camera battery is charged through the Micro USB port at the bottom, near the microSD port.
