Canon PowerShot N announced

You know, with each edition of CES, consumer electronics manufacturers would come up with new and revised versions of existing models, be they camcorders or digital cameras. This year, we see Canon update the PowerShot range with a slew of new models, although we are going to take a closer look at the PowerShot N for now. The spanking new PowerShot N digital camera will feature an innovative Creative Shot mode which help enhances artistic expression as well as sport a host of new connectivity features which will be able to support instant sharing, turning the Canon PowerShot N into quite the ultimate storytelling tool. In a digital manner, of course.

First of all, here are more details about the Creative Shot, which is a new imaging mode that is capable of intuitively analyze an image, and it will automatically get to work, creating a series of five artistic photos of the original with different composition, lighting and color so that you have quite the array of options to choose from. Integrated wireless capabilities will also see it hook up the camera to a variety of mobile devices in a jiffy, allowing you to upload and comment on your images regardless of where you are.

Other hardware features include a 2.8-inch capacitive, tilt-touch panel LCD, that gives you the option and freedom to shoot creative images at unique angles. Not only that, there is also a shutter and zoom ring that is located at the top and bottom of the lens, allowing images to be snapped from virtually any position, leaving your friends to stop and ask, “How did you manage to capture that image?” while you wear a smug smile on your face and wave the PowerShot N at them.

With an 8x optical zoom and a 28mm wide-angle lens, accompanied by a 12.1- megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor, you know that the PowerShot N is up for just about anything – video or stills, it does not matter. You can expect to pick up the Canon PowerShot N from April onwards for $299.99, where it will come in white or black shades.
