Canon Patent Application: Telescoping EVF

While this feature isn't unique, and has been done on such cameras such as the small Sony RX 100 IV and others, this is the first time I've seen it pop up (no pun intended) for Canon.

In this patent application, Canon is looking at an EVF that pops out, so that by default, at rest when you are not using the camera the EVF doesn't protrude as much, and as well, allows the EVF to protrude sufficiently that your nose doesn't always touch the touchscreen.  In this patent application, Canon looks to attempt to increase the distance of protrusion capable of the EVF.

While we don't expect every Canon patent application that we discover to make it into a final product, unless ones are physically obvious such as this, or a lens, at times it's difficult to tell if a patent actually was applied.  Even with that, we should note that not all Canon patent applications make it into patents for various reasons, such as cost benefit analysis or difficulties in actual manufacturing.  That being said, it gives us insight into some of the things that Canon is working on in their R&D labs.
