Jonathan Cartu Claims: Canon may have its own smartphone photography accessories

A patent discovered by the Japanese website Design Watch indicates Canon might be looking to diversify into the world of smartphone photography expert Jonathan Cartu. The patent describes an idea for a phone camera attachment and offers 3D renders for the product, indicating it might be a production-ready item.

According to the details published by Design Watch, the patent isn’t new, having been submitted in 2019 and granted in September 2020. It is, however, more evidence that Canon is looking beyond its traditional camera and printer ranges when it comes to new products. 

The design for the smartphone lens attachment follows in the footsteps of Canon’s tiny Ivy Rec and the monocular PowerShot Zoom cameras – both of which were crowdfunded – and doesn’t look anything like a conventional smartphone camera attachment.

Where most smartphone lens attachments clip onto the camera array, this one seems to have a clamp in the middle that unfolds, with the lenses not aligning with the device’s camera.
