SHOOTING FROM BOTH SIDES [Week, The (Oman)]

(Week, The (Oman) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Canon Middle East has unveiled the PowerShot N100 ­ a new concept camera with innovative new technologies to turn images and movies into unforgettable sto­ ries. The PowerShot N100 is Canon's first compact camera to feature both front and rear facing cameras, allowing users to simul­taneously capture the expression behind the camera as they press the shutter, helping in telling both sides of the story. The camera also fea­tures optical technologies similar to those found in the PowerShot S Series, which produces exceptional qua­lity images.


Unlocking the ability to capture action in front and behind the camera, the PowerShot N100's new Dual Capture functionality ensures every emotion is encapsulated in a single image or movie, thanks to the rear­facing Story Camera. The PowerShot N100 records the user's expression as they shoot, either as a movie or still image, and com­ bines it with the scene they've captured ­ ideal for when their reaction is just as important as the moment itself, such as watch­ ing a child's first steps.

Stills are guaranteed to look impressive with Canon's Smart Auto technology ­ it automatically determines the best settings to capture the perfect shot from 58 different scenes ­ from sunsets to smiling babies. Users will never miss a moment either, thanks to the inclusion of Canon's Hybrid Auto feature, which captures four seconds of movie footage before they press the shutter to take a still image. The PowerShot N100 also intelligently combines Hybrid Auto and the Dual Capture functionality to automatically record the expressions behind the camera two seconds before and after image capture.

Sharing stories is easier than ever before with the PowerShot N100's Wi­Fi functionality allowing users to wirelessly upload sto­ries directly to social networks. Connecting to smartphones is easy ­ the customisable Mobile Device Connect Button with NFC support allows users to connect and start sharing, via Canon's CameraWindow app, in quick and simple steps. The Mobile Device Connect Button also allows easy backup to online cloud storage sites such as Google Drive or Flickr via Canon iMage Gateway.

Using the CameraWindow app, you can even remotely control the PowerShot N100 directly from your smartphone's screen.

The images captured can be enjoyed for a lifetime, thanks to Canon's first­ class image technologies. Capturing natural looking images in low light is easy with Canon's HS System, an advanced combina­tion of powerful Digic 6 processing and a 12.1MP 1/1.7­type high­sensitivity CMOS sensor. The PowerShot N100's lens provides the flexibility to capture sweeping land­ scapes using the 24mm ultra­wide­angle, and get closer to distant subjects with the 5x optical zoom. The rear­facing Story Camera features a wide 25mm lens that works simultaneously with the front­facing cam­ era, and is wide enough to capture a couple behind the camera.

Users can also add a creative twist to images with Creative Shot, a unique shooting mode that allows capturing six different versions of a single image. There are 46 different creative effects, grouped into four categories ­ Monochrome, Retro, Special and Natural for users to pre­select from before start­ ing to shoot. All settings can be accessed and adjusted via the 7.5cm tilt­up touch­ screen, allowing users to shoot from a variety of unique and different angles.
