Meet the Canon IVY REC, the take-anywhere activity camera

The Canon IVY REC is here – a shockproof,* waterproof,** portable camera perfect for shooting on the go. With a 13-Megapixel sensor, Full HD 1080p video at up to 60fps, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, it's designed to capture all the action in high definition in situations where you don't want to risk an ordinary camera or your smartphone. This tough little camera can clip right onto your belt or bag so it's always within reach and, best of all, you can share your shots instantly through the Canon Mini Cam app.***

Measuring only 110.5mm wide and weighing approximately 90 grams, the Canon IVY REC won't slow you down or get in your way. You'll forget it's there until you need it, allowing you to focus on the action.

Take the plunge

The Canon IVY REC is waterproof** up to two metres for 30 minutes in fresh water, which means it's the perfect poolside companion. The viewfinder doubles as a clip, so you can attach the Canon IVY REC to your belt or backpack when hiking or mount it to the front of your mountain bike for POV shots. Don't be afraid to take it with you when it's raining or you're going off-road. It's made for adventure, and for a life on the go!

The Canon IVY REC can also be used on tripods, as well as clipped to clothing and even mounted onto sports equipment.

Don't hold back

The bright colours of the Canon IVY REC mean if it gets lost, it's easy to spot in snow, mud and water – and with no screen that could crack, this camera is tough and hard-wearing.

Unlike your smartphone, the Canon IVY REC has no screen, so there's no need to worry about cracks – it's shockproof* and can withstand the impact of being dropped from two metres, perfect for when you're out mountain biking or running along a woodland trail. It comes in a choice of four striking colours, which means it's not only eye-catching, but also stands out if dropped in mud, sand or snow. Whether you're cycling, skiing or skateboarding, it will gladly tag along for the ride.
