Canon's PowerShot N: When DSLRs Meet Facebook

By Tony Ibrahim | Tuesday | 08/01/2013

Canon has released a compact camera ripe with features and a social attitude.

Canon's PowerShot N might model the petite size familiar to compact cameras, but inside the metal body is enough wit to hold its own against its DSLR siblings.

There's the obvious similarities—such as the tilting capacitive touchscreen and the zoom rings encircling its 8x lens—and then the more subtle details including its 12.1MP CMOS sensor and advanced DIGIC 5 processor. Even its maximum ISO 6400 setting is noteworthy.

Mind you we've come across a few compact cameras just as fluent, but we're impressed by the PowerShot N's social etiquette. In built WiFi makes it easy to upload photos to Facebook, while its Creative Shot mode "intelligently analyses the scene and determines which…creative elements could enhance the scene or offer a different creative angle," before offering five alternative versions.

Software perks geared to make amateurs look professional are aplenty. These include various creative modes (miniature effect, soft focus, toy camera effect, monochrome) and slow motion movie mode.

An intriguing additive is Hybrid Auto mode, which records a four second movie before every still shot in 720p resolution before Canon's 'Smart Auto' technology identifies the best settings. "At the end of the day, the four second clips are merged into one" to tell the day's story.

In order to keep the camera on the small size, the PowerShot N doesn't feature an in built GPS receiver; however, it will glean and subsequently geotag your photos when connected to a smartphone.

Videos are recorded in 1080p resolution @ 30 frames per second 

We've been told Canon's PowerShot N is expected in Australia come May, but details on pricing remain sparse.
