Rethink Photography with Creative Shot
New Creative Shot mode uses composition, colour, and lighting from your original image to create five unique images with an artistic flair.
The new Creative Shot mode featured on the PowerShot N can help anyone create images with artistic flair. Rather than randomly applying filters, Creative Shot mode takes advantage of Canon's advanced image and scene analysis technology to apply a range of artistic presets based on the individual scene, subject, and exposure. In addition to the original shot, the camera automatically produces and saves five unique variations of the composition by cropping it, rotating it, or adjusting its colour, tone, and more. The result is stunning artistic photos that are perfect for sharing.
Exercise Complete Control with New Technologies
Newly designed 2.8-inch capacitive, tilt, touch panel LCD, lens shutter, and zoom ring offer users a unique and creative way to capture photos
Leverage the flexibility and creativity of the PowerShot N using a set of new innovative controls. The newly designed 2.8-inch capacitive LCD monitor is more than just a means of reviewing your photos. 90-degrees of tilt open up new perspectives when framing shots – shoot diagonally, horizontally, from low angles or high for the perfect emphasized shot. The top-mounted hinge keeps the PowerShot N compact, even when folded out, for easy, one-handed operation. Adjust settings and modes using the intuitive touch-screen menu—use gestures to zoom, rotate, and select images. Dual rings provide effortless control over the lens and shutter. The outer ring controls the shutter, which can be released from any point on the ring. Whichever angle or position you choose to hold the PowerShot N, the shutter release is always under your finger for quick and discreet release. The inner ring controls the zoom of the 28mm Wide-Angle 8x Optical Zoom lens with Optical Image Stabilizer, ensuring your images are sharp and clear. Responsive and silent zoom action provides a welcome feel of tactile control that makes operating the PowerShot N an incredible experience.
A Powerful and Compact New Lens
8x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle Lens
The PowerShot N houses a Genuine Canon 8x Optical Zoom Lens in the center of its square-shaped body, allowing you to capture powerful shots with outstanding optical performance and versatility. The zoom starts at 28mm wide-angle and extends to 224mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), covering a wide and highly useful range. The telephoto reach gives you the freedom to capture subjects from afar, while the 28mm wide-angle makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings.
Optical Image Stabilizer
Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos, and videos blurry. Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical in more shooting situations, providing excellent image quality in many difficult situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image. And because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers.
Beautiful Images and Fast Performance Start Here
12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor
The PowerShot N employs a Canon 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which delivers state-of-the-art imaging performance and is optimized for use in compact cameras. Utilizing a sophisticated light-capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for improved high ISO capture with reduced noise. It is also a high-speed design, capable of rapidly capturing and moving image data to the processor, enabling faster continuous shooting and faster autofocus.
Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor
The latest-generation Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor works with the PowerShot N's image sensor to bring phenomenal increases in processing speed and power, delivering incredible detail in more situations, without the need for artificial light sources. Improved noise reduction produces clearer images when shooting in low light at high ISO speeds. The faster processing speed results in faster continuous shooting capability while maintaining full image quality. With the power of the DIGIC 5 Image Processor, the PowerShot N can achieve higher ISO sensitivity and even perform advanced functions like lens correction, special scene modes, and much more.
Canon HS SYSTEM for exceptional low-light performance up to ISO 6400
The PowerShot N gives you the power to create images with spectacular depth, detail, and emotional resonance. The 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor works in concert with Canon's latest-generation DIGIC 5 Image Processor to create the renowned Canon HS SYSTEM. With the Canon HS SYSTEM, you'll experience excellent tracking performance even in low light, and achieve gorgeous still image quality even at high ISO speeds all the way up to ISO 6400; beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you use higher shutter speeds to capture clearer images with reduced noise and blur in a variety of situations for incredible photos and even when shooting video.

Optimal Image Stabilization in Any Situation
Intelligent IS automatically chooses from six different modes to optimize image stabilization for the shooting condition
It's easy to capture clear, steady images with the PowerShot N, even in low light without using a tripod. That's because the camera is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS. The system analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation – allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system automatically selects among Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid), and Tripod IS modes. When shooting video, the system automatically selects among Dynamic, Powered, Macro, and Tripod IS modes.
- Normal Corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting stills.
- Panning Panning motion is detected so that IS does not interfere with desired camera movement.
- Macro (Hybrid) Corrects for shift-type camera shake, which typically occurs in macro (close-up) shooting.
- Dynamic Effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths, eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking.
- Powered Compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified.
- Tripod When tripod use is detected, the Image Stabilizer is stopped because it is not needed.
The PowerShot N takes energy conservation to the next level with ECO Mode, which provides more shots per single charge through monitor and camera power management. ECO Mode can be activated for easy power preservation when an outlet is unavailable or the moment is too exciting to put the camera down. ECO Mode quickly wakes the camera from sleep when a button is pressed or with a touch of the LCD screen. With ECO Mode activated to conserve power, you can even stay connected for longer with the built-in Wi-Fi® feature on the PowerShot N. With ECO Mode, you can be sure that your camera will keep up when fun with family and friends runs late into the night!
