Canon updates its PowerShot line at the CES 2013 and the new PowerShot N is the camera maker’s effort to “open new dimensions of photographic expression”, and to bring smartphone snap shooters back to camera.
Instead of conventional rectangular shape, Canon’s new camera has a square design.
It offers a ‘Creative Shot’ mode that generates multiple versions of your image, so you get the shot you composed plus five alternatives with different crops and processing effects.
Canon promises one-touch Wi-Fi connectivity to make it easier to upload images and video to your smartphone and the internet.
An 8x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle lens captures brilliant images with grandeur, from up close or far away.
The advanced capacitive 7.1 cm (2.8″) touch screen also allows users to control essential functions, such as focus or the shutter, with a simple touch, and review their images with familiar, intuitive gestures.
The camera features a new Creative Shot mode for artistic image capture, automatically creating an additional five unique images every time you take a shot.
Record 1080p Full HD video when you want to express yourself with moving images, and know that the enhanced built-in Wi-Fi® of the PowerShot N makes sharing easier than ever.
The 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor create the Canon HS SYSTEM for stunning image quality and low-light performance, ensuring every photo is a powerful statement.
A convenient Mobile Device Connect Button also brings powerful new sharing capabilities with smartphone connectivity.
Coming in April 2013, Canon’s PowerShot N will be priced at $299.99. It comes in black and white colors.
Here’s a look at how it works.
