Following a successful Indiegogo campaign, Canon has publically launched its IVY REC clippable camera made for snapping images and recording videos in risky environments. As its name suggests, this model features a clip for directly attaching the camera to strap, loop, belt or similar item; the same clip also functions as a viewfinder, according to Canon.

The IVY REC Outdoor camera features a 13MP sensor, support for capturing 1:1 and 4:3 JPEG images in resolutions up to 3104 x 3104 and 4160 x 3120, video recording at 720p/30fps through 1080p/60fps in MP4 format, and a fixed 25.4mm F2.2 lens.

In addition to electronic image stabilization, the camera features a mono microphone, a memory card slot for saving content, a 660mAh rechargeable battery, and micro USB connectivity. IVY REC likewise features Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi 802.11b/g/n, as well as support for the Canon Mini Cam, which provides access to image and video settings, battery life info, and remaining storage capacity.

The Canon Mini Cam app offers a live viewfinder mode and remote shutter with timer, plus there's the ability to wirelessly transfer images from the camera to a mobile device. As indicated by Canon's marketing, the model is also durable with a shockproof/waterproof design and support for operating temperatures from -10C to 40C (14F to 104F). The camera measures 110.5mm x 45.2mm x 18.5mm (4.4in x 1.8in x 0.7in).

The IVY REC Outdoor Camera will be available from Canon in Avocado (green), Riptide (blue), and Dragon Fruit (pink) colors starting next month for $129.99.
