Borrowing from the PowerShot N, Canon announced, today at CES 2014, the PowerShot N100. It features a 5x optical zoom, a 24mm wide-angle f/1.8 lens, a 12.1-megapixel high sensitivity (HS) CMOS image sensor, the DIGIC 6 image processor, and full 1080p HD video recording (with a dedicated movie record button). 

But wait, there's more...

Dual Capture Mode utilizes the included rear-facing "Story Camera" to create a picture-in-picture effect of not only the photograph subject, but also the person taking said photograph. Story Highlights Mode "creates a highlight reel of selected images or movie digest clips" to build a two to five minute movie automatically selected from the movies and/or videos taken at one specific event (hand picked events, dates taken, or even by Face ID).

The N100 also boasts 46 new Filter Effects, including HDR (High Dynamic Range) effects and Creative Shot Mode, which divides the filters into four categories: Retro, Monochrome, Special, and Natural. The other cool thing about Creative Shot Mode is that after you take a photo, this mode "automatically renders five different variations of the shot", to give you options, while retaining the original version.

With "enhanced" Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Communication) technologies, the N100 uses the Mobile Device Connect Button to pair with smartphones and tablets. From there, assuming you're running the Canon Camera Window app, it's easy to connect with computers, back up images on the cloud, or use your iOS or Android device as a remote control / remote display.

  • 12.1-megapixel HS CMOS image sensor
