Canon has announced the PowerShot N compact camera as a smartphone companion for the Instagram generation.
The N is built around a tilting touch- screen, and its round-lens zoom controller and shutter release are designed to make it behave identically whether held right-way-up or upside- down. It offers a ‘Creative Shot’ mode that generates multiple versions of your image, so you get the shot you composed plus five alternatives with different crops and processing effects. One-touch Wi-Fi connectivity makes uploads easy. The N has a 28-224mm equivalent lens and a 12MP CMOS sensor that works with a Digic 5 processor.
