This may not be the right time to go outside, but Canon believes that at some point people will want to break away from the new normal lullness and go outside. Some can even go out into the wild and into the night sky for a short break. It’s almost a situation where Canon’s newest PowerShot ZOOM camera can come in handy in helping people get closer to what’s going on, even when they’re far away.

Canon’s PowerShot line is simple to use and very straightforward. The PowerShot ZOOM is presented in a form reminiscent of a camcorder. This is a compact monocular camera that does only one thing: get you closer to the subject as quickly and easily as possible.

To this end, the PowerShot ZOOM offers three telephoto lengths of 100mm, 400mm and 800mm, all accessible via a single zoom button. In fact, there aren’t a lot of controls, just an on / off button and a menu that hides everything else.

The technical specifications of this camera are quite simple and show its purpose at the first level. They have a 12-megapixel sensor that can record Full HD 30p, OIS, and AF for face tracking, and a small 0.39-inch EVF. With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity, users can easily transfer photos and videos to compatible smart devices via the Canon Camera Connect app.

Given its size and simplicity, it’s no surprise that the compact telephoto lens costs just $ 299.99 when it launches in November. Convincing high-end smartphone owners to invest in a separate device just for telephoto can be difficult, as can the devices they already own. Reuters
