Canon PowerShot N Camera

Canon has announced a unique ultra-compact PowerShot N camera that is designed to compete with your smartphone camera. The new camera sports DIGIC 5 image processor, a 12MP high speed, sensitivity CMOS sensor, and 28-244 mm equivalent 8x zoom lens. The camera's 2.8-inch tilting touchscreen allows you to take pictures almost at any angle, and a new Creative Shot mode automatically generates five different versions of your picture using different color modes, styles, and crops in addition to saving the original shot. With the camera's Wi-Fi one-touch connectivity, it is very easy to upload videos and images to your smartphone and the internet. The PoweShot N is expected to go on sale sometime in April and priced at $299.99.
