The perfect smartphone companion, the PowerShot N has been designed to simplify image sharing with intuitive Wi-Fi connectivity allowing a new generation of high-quality, artistic images and Full HD videos to be shared in near real-time.
Aside from its unique design, the PowerShot N comes with 12.1 MP CMOS sensor, 2.8-inch capacitive tilt-up touch screen, DIGIC 5, max ISO of 6400, 8x 28mm optical zoom lens, GPS via mobile, ZoomPlus technology with up to 16x zoom, and full HD video recording.
