The bizarre Canon Powershot Zoom looks like the future of compact cameras

The best camera phones might have replaced dedicated compact cameras in most people’s pockets, but that doesn’t mean compacts can’t reinvent themselves – a prime example is the Canon Powershot Zoom, which has just smashed its crowdfunding target in Japan in only 13 hours.

First shown off as a concept in 2019, the Powershot Zoom is a monocular-style camera that puts a 400mm telephoto lens in your pocket, with digital zoom stretching that even further to an 800mm equivalent focal length. This could make it a very handy little companion for both watching and taking snaps at sports events and safaris.
