Last year a design for a telephoto lens smartphone add-on appeared in very basic renders.

Canon News has now uncovered a patent showing this addon in great detail.

With what we’ve seen Canon do with the likes of the PowerShot Zoom and PowerShot Pick, they have shown they’re not afraid to try new products and form factors to see how the market responds.

With the traditional PowerShot lineup all but dead, it looks like these are the type of products Canon is going to be trying, as well as trying to figure out a way to appeal to the Smartphone photographers.

The key to anything like this is good usability, an affordable price, and most importantly, better optical performance over a phone camera like Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra, which sports a 108mp image sensor and 100x zoom.
