Canon turns to Indiegogo for the Ivy Rec, a small outdoor camera integrated into a keychain carabiner, to be crowdfunded. It’s about the size of a USB flash card and connects to the companion CanonMini Cam App wirelessly via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to display a live preview on your device. The clip’s empty space doubles as a viewfinder, and on the back there is a single button allowing you to switch between modes.
The Ivy Rec has a 13-megapixel 1/3-inch CMOS sensor capable of recording 1080p/60 fps video, and for depths of up to three feet it is waterproof for up to 30 minutes. It’s slightly more expensive than expected at its $130 retail price, but could still be a good option for parents looking to get a starter camera for their kids. Canon claims the camera is shockproof and excellent outdoors.
