Canon introduces new PowerShot N Digital Camera
(Best Syndication News) - Canon U.S.A., Inc., (NYSE:CAJ) revealed their new PowerShot N digital camera that features a Creative Shot mode and new connectivity for sharing images on the go.
Being artistic is automated with the new PowerShot N. In Creative Shot mode, the camera analyzes a photo and creates five artistic photos of the original with varying composition, lighting, and color. Sharing the photo is simple with wireless transmission of the photos that can be sent to various mobile devices. This allows the photos to be uploaded online without delay.
The camera has a 2.8-inch capacitive, tilt-touch panel LCD display. The 90 degrees of tilt capability of the display, along with a shutter button and zoom-ring located on both the top and bottom, lets the photographer take photos from almost every possible angle.
The PowerShot N is equipped with 8x optical zoom, a 28 mm wide-angle lens, and measures just 3.09 x 2.37 x 1.15 inches. The camera can take 1080p Full HD video as well as photos with the 12.1 megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor. Focus is easier with the camera’s ability to recognize faces. Based on the photographing situation, optimal stabilization settings can be used. There is a reduced power mode to extend battery life by around 30 percent; when used, the display is dimmed and shuts off when not used within 10 seconds. The battery is recharged via USB from the computer or by plugging it into the AC wall adapter.
The Canon PowerShot N camera requires a one-time set-up to send photos to a mobile device. Once configured, a simple button push will let the user wirelessly send the videos or photos to share. The mobile devices supported include the iOS and Android operating systems. The camera has a history menu to store more than one device.
The PowerShot N can also connect wirelessly from the Canon iMAGE GATEWAY to automatically send the photos and videos to a computer remotely. Photos can be sent wirelessly to PictBridge, which is available on certain Canon printers (PIXMA MG6320, PIXMA MX922).
Canon expects to start shipping the PowerShot N camera in April 2013. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $299.99 and the camera will be available in white or black.
