Canon has announced the development of MM100-WS Multi-Purpose Camera. It’s incredibly compact with a body size of approximately 1.57 in (w) x 1.57 in (h) x .85 in (d), which is about the same size as the GoPro HERO5 Session. The Canon camera is even a little thinner though.
Canon is positioning the MM100-WS as a solution for a variety of industries. It suggests professional and industrial applications, such as monitoring in narrow spaces, piping inspections and automotive industry, among others. It will be dust and moisture resistant and can capture images in very low light, considering it only needs 1 lux of illumination.
No word yet on pricing or availability; however, I expect to see the camera up close at PhotoPlus next month.
