 Canon is launching its most affordable PTZ camera to date. The Canon CR-N100 is essentially a stripped-down version of the CR-N300 - but that still offers 4K video capture, and a built-in 20x optical zoom.

PTZ, or pan-tilt-zoom cameras, have been an increasing tool in video production. They can be used for streaming, and can be used to give an extra camera position without the need for an additional operator. The zoom and built-in motorized head can be operated remotely - in much the same way as a security camera.
