Canon PowerShot N
12.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor; 8x Optical Zoom; Built in Wi-Fi; New Creative Shot mode; Newly designed 2.8-inch capacitive, tilt, touch panel LCD; lens shutter and zoom ring; DIGIC 5 Processor; 28mm Wide-Angle lens
Canon's new N line alters the design of a typical compact digital. Instead of buttons, the N has a shutter release and zoom rings on the front of the camera and a touch screen tilt LCD on the back for all the other controls. But the design is not the only thing different about the Canon N, an improved sensor is expected to allow for low light photography and a new creative mode takes six different shots every time the shutter is released. While the new design may take some getting used to, the N shows promise as a new competitor in the point and shoot category.
