The Canon PowerShot N is approximately the size of a bar of soap, and when you flip out the LCD monitor it can stand on its own. Despite its small size it features a 28-224mm (35mm equivalent) f/3-5.9 lens, an optical stabilizer, a 12MP CMOS sensor, and 1080 full HD video capture. The Canon Powershot N offers built-in Wi-Fi and lets you upload to the Internet via your iOS or Android Device via the free Canon CameraWindow app.
But it is the camera's distinctive design that is attracting the most attention. The LCC monitor can be tilted up to 90 degrees; users adjust settings and modes using gestures to zoom, rotate and select images on the screen. Dual rings surrounding the lens barrel control the lens and shutter. the outer ring controls the shutter, which can be released from any point on the ring; the inner ring controls the zoom.
Canon offers a six-way optical image stabilizer that compensates for all different kinds of camera movement, and Canon says the camera's ISO range has been expanded to ISO 6400. Another cool feature: Creative Shot, which analyzes each scene and applies color, tone, crop or rotation adjustments to the image automatically. In addition, Canon offers 7 creative filter modes.
