The new PowerShot N compact digital camera, featuring an all-new design and novel operability. The new camera employs a Creative Shot mode that automatically adjusts composition, color and lighting to produce five unique images along with the original photo, all of which can be shared via social networking services (SNS) using a smartphone or tablet PC.*1 Canon developed the new-concept PowerShot N for users looking to enjoy surprising new ways of capturing artistic photos.

Taking advantage of Canon’s scene-analysis and image-processing technologies, the new PowerShot N compact digital camera incorporates a Creative Shot mode that analyzes a captured image and automatically adjusts the composition, color and lighting to render five different photos in addition to the original.

Trading in the shutter button and zoom lever controls used in conventional cameras, the Canon PowerShot N’s new dual-ring lens design includes a zoom ring and, marking a world’s first,*2 employs a shutter ring that shifts vertically, allowing it to be depressed from either the top or bottom of the lens. By allowing images to be captured using either the top or bottom portions of the ring provides users with greater freedom and flexibility when shooting. In addition, a tilt touch-panel LCD offering 90 degrees of tilt enables shooting from a wide range of angles and positions, such as from high and low angles, for additional photographic freedom.

The PowerShot N is equipped with a new Mobile Device Connect Button, which allows the camera to connect via Wi-Fi to a pre-registered smartphone or tablet PC with a single touch of a button.*3
