Canon PowerShot PX camera is your new personal photographer
Taking photographs and recording special moments can sometimes attract your attention from the emotion of the special occasion.
Canon have created a new PowerShot PX camera designed to automatically capture those unique moments in your life while you can be fully engaged and take part.
The camera can also be used as a wireless web camera and is capable of capturing 11.7 megapixel images and 60p Full HD video. The camera also features a pan-and-tilt zoom lens offering 340˚ pan and 110˚ tilt 19-57mm (equivalent) zoom lens that will automatically follow the action and compose the perfect picture or video of your occasion.
Canon PowerShot PX camera automatically catches all the action
“When you want to capture life’s precious moments, but also want to be in them, the PowerShot PX is ideal – capturing natural expressions following the action and automatically framing people intelligently and creatively. It documents your precious moments and recommends the best photos and videos for you through the smartphone app.”
Introducing the new Canon Powershot PX – Your own personal photographer
Canon’s AI-Enabled Powershot PX Smart Home Camera Can Take Pictures for You Automatically
You’ll no longer need to be behind the camera in family photos.
Following the popularity of the Powershot Pick — a similar experimental crowdfunded project available exclusively in Japan — Canon is now introducing the Powershot PX, a fully automatic smart home camera that’ll help you snap photos of your family and friends without the need of someone behind the viewfinder.
Using an AI system with automatic subject recognition and focusing, the smart camera will help you record those perfect moments either in 11.7-megapixel stills or 1080p footage at 60 frames per second. Equipped with pan-and-tilt capabilities, the device can look around the room 340 degrees horizontally and 110 degrees vertically to frame those shots no matter where you are, and a 19-57mm focal length range gives it plenty to work with.
Photographic performance aside, the Powershot PX also boasts all the features you’d expect from a smart home gadget: WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity for access from other devices, voice activation for hands-free control, and quick charging via USB-C. It’ll also work in tandem with its iOS or Android app to make recommendations on which shots or footage to keep, which are then saved on a memory card on the camera.
Canon’s Powershot PX hopes home surveillance can be a little fun
Canon’s latest release, the PowerShot PX, is an always-on home camera that uses artificial intelligence to snap quick shots of cute memories.
It’s a very normal home surveillance camera, really — just instead of nabbing home invaders, it’ll help you take photos of your kids drawing all over the walls. Or something cute like that.
The PowerShot PX isn’t just always watching.
It’s always analyzing, too. The camera is trained with custom machine learning models to follow faces and automatically choose when to take the best photo. It’ll even try to frame the photo perfectly so you don’t end up with an extreme close-up revealing all your pores.
Canon wants you to know this thing is much more impressive than your smartphone camera. The 11.7 MP, 1/2.3 CMOS sensor takes the kind of photos you’d expect from an entry-range DSLR. But you’ll pay a hefty price for those memories: It’s retailing for €499.99 (a little under $600). And you’ve gotta be comfortable with its ever-watchful eye.
Point and shoot — This camera is mostly meant to be a set-and-forget type deal. The 340-degree pan mechanism and 110-degree tilt give the camera a pretty stellar range of motion. It is rechargeable via USB-C, though, so you can take it from the living room to the kitchen without much hassle.
The auto-shooting feature is the Powershot PX’s biggest selling point, but it can also be used to take photos manually. All you have to do is say, “Hey Pixie, take a picture.” (Apparently the camera’s name is Pixie.) Photos can also be taken manually via a connected smartphone app.
It’s still surveillance — The Powershot PX is a cute idea.
Plenty of parents will surely fall for the charming premise of never having to actually think about taking pictures but still ending up with pictures. But, um, it’s still a surveillance device.
Pixie’s main selling point is that it can keep an eye on you and your family at all hours of the day. That’s not to say Canon’s intentions are malicious — but not everyone will be open to photos of them being taken at random throughout the day, you know? It really is similar to buying an AI-equipped home security camera, though consumers may not see it that way.
At this early stage, it’s also difficult to tell how well the Powershot PX’s facial tracking software actually works. It’d better be incredible, for nearly $600.
