Canon announces PowerShot N Facebook ready edition
Canon has created a 'Facebook ready' variant of its social-media-focused PowerShot N digital camera. The 'Facebook ready' version will only be available directly from Canon (in the US, at least) and has a dedicated Facebook connect button in the place of the connect-to-device one on the standard N. Once the camera has been taught your login details, you can upload images with a choice of who gets to see them, once posted. The 1/2.3" 12MP sensor camera will cost $299.

Melville, N.Y., August 22, 2013 – To address the popular trend of instantly sharing photos and videos with family and friends, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced a new version of its uniquely designed PowerShot N digital camera – the PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera. A Canon Direct exclusive, the PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera features a convenient Facebook Connect Button that supports instant sharing of crisp, clear images and videos to users’ Facebook accounts.
Helping people’s creativity shine through, the PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera’s Creative Shot mode automatically creates a series of five artistic photos along with the original for an array of options that are ready to impress. With the convenient Facebook Connect Button and Wi-Fi® technology, the PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera connects the camera directly to users’ Facebook accounts, so they can upload, comment and share their most creative, detailed images while on-the-go.
In addition to offering powerful artistic and connectivity functions, the PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera features a 2.8-inch capacitive, tilt-touch panel LCD, allowing users to capture creative images at unique angles. With a shutter and zoom ring, both located around the lens, images can be snapped easily from the top or bottom of the ring so the perfect shot is always within reach.
The PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera offers an 8x optical zoom and a 28mm wide-angle lens, packaged with a 12.1-megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor. Users can also record high-quality 1080p Full HD video with a dedicated movie button. With Hybrid Auto users can automatically create a composite video of brief clips that are recorded while taking photos to give a creative overview of a day’s activities. The PowerShot N Facebook ready’s Face ID system allows for the camera to automatically recognize and focus on familiar faces. In addition, Canon’s Intelligent IS System allows the camera to automatically select the optimal image stabilization settings according to the shooting conditions, taking the guesswork out of identifying the ideal setting for each unique shot.
“At Canon, we are continually working to improve the way users share their photos and videos,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. “The new PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera, with the Facebook Connect Button, opens up a new dimension of photographic sharing and expression to help people showcase their personal style and creative flair with powerful innovative Canon technologies.”
Convenient Sharing with the Facebook Connect Button
To make sure users can instantly share photos and videos with family and friends, the PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera now features a convenient Facebook Connect Button. After an initial one-time set-up, pressing the new Facebook Connect Button links the camera to the users’ Facebook account for quick and easy sharing. Users can also control the destination of their Facebook uploads by choosing to share content with everyone, or to select Facebook groups.
Wi-Fi Connectivity for Easy Sharing
The PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera is also equipped with built-in Wi-Fi® technology, so high-quality images can be shared with friends and family even while on-the-go. Users now have the ability to comment on their uploaded photos directly from the camera – so starting a conversation on social networking sites is easy and convenient. Users can also instantly upload images wirelessly from the camera to CANON iMAGE GATEWAYi, and upload them to a computer remotely. Photos can also be printed wirelessly using Wireless PictBridgeii on select printers, including the Canon PIXMA MG7120 or PIXMA MG5520 Wireless Photo All-In-One printers.
The Ultimate Tool to Capture Creativity
Creative Shot, available on the PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera, is an easy, yet powerful tool to add artistic effects to photos. In Creative Shot mode, users compose their shot and let the PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera automatically create a series of five artistic photos along with the original to deliver creative new perspectives using different color modes, crops and styles. In addition, the new PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera offers 58 scenes of Smart AUTO and provides an 8x optical zoom to help users capture the ultimate creative shot.
A first-ever for the PowerShot line-up, the camera’s zoom lens and shutter are both operated on the camera’s dual-ring lens. By moving the dual-ring left or right users can control the camera’s zoom, and by pressing on the other ring users control the shutter, which can be released from the top or bottom of the ring, so managing the PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera is easy and effortless.
The PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera features a touch shutter, enabling users to start tracking a subject simply by pressing the intuitive touch panel LCD, and then capture the image by lifting their finger off the screen. For added flexibility, the image on the screen rotates with the camera – so people can capture even the most unique shot.
Sleek, Small and Designed for Portability
With a sleek and unique design, the PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera is ideal for quick on-the-go shooting. This camera features a 2.8-inch capacitive, tilt touch panel LCD, which offers 90 degrees of tilt, encouraging users to capture images from a wide array of angles and positions effectively in virtually any location. The top-mounted hinge keeps the PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera compact for convenient on-the-go shooting and easy, one-handed operation. The PowerShot N Facebook ready digital camera uses a Micro SD card to store images, and the camera can be easily charged with a USB cable while on-the-go, ensuring the creative process is never interrupted. In addition, the USB cable provides a quick and easy way to download videos as an alternative to the innovative Wi-Fi® options.
