Following a successful Indiegogo campaign, Canon USA is officially launching the IVY REC, a clippable, display-less camera, designed for outdoors enthusiasts looking for an alternative to fragile, bulky phones to immortalize their adventures. Under the hood, you get a 13-megapixel 1/3-inch CMOS sensor that can record 4160x3120 pixel photos or 1080/60 fps videos. Since it has no display, you’ll have to use the clip as a viewfinder, but you can connect it to your phone via Bluetooth or WiFi for extra insurance. The Ivy Rec is shockproof and waterproof up to depths of 2 m. The camera is available in Riptide blue, Avocado green and Dragon Fruit pink. It is expected to ship in October. Now available for pre-order for USD130 (CAD170).
