Canon’s PowerShot Zoom has a 12-megapixel sensor and two switchable equivalent focal lengths of 100mm and 400mm

Canon has announced the PowerShot zoom, an unusual camera that’s more like a digital monocular than a point-and-shoot. The company has been showing off the idea for a while and recently crowdfunded it in Japan.

The PowerShot zoom is a tiny device with an electronic viewfinder and a 1/3-inch 12-megapixel sensor. The lens is f/5.6-6-6.3, so this probably is n’t well-suited to low-light use.

Canon says the product has been designed for people who enjoy outdoor activities like birdwatching and hiking. The camera charges over USB-C and saves images and video to a microSD card, plus you can transfer images to a smartphone over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
