PowerShot N100 captures shot of photographer, subject at same time

Canon has unveiled three new point-and-shoot cameras at CES, with all offered under its PowerShot range. The PowerShot SX600 HS and PowerShot ELPH 340 HS are relatively conventional cameras from the producer with added Wi-Fi and NFC, while the PowerShot N100 has a Dual Capture mode, which can take a secondary photograph from another camera sensor on the back.

Offering a front-facing 12-megapixel CMOS sensor with the DIGIC 6 image processor and a 24mm wide-angle f/1.8 OIS lens with 5x optical zoom. Capable of recording 1080p video with its dedicated movie button, it offers 46 new filters and effects, a Creative Shot mode that automatically renders five different filtered versions of a shot, and Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity with smartphones and tablets for quick sharing of images. Above the hinged rear 3-inch display is the camera's secondary image sensor, incorporating the backwards-facing shot into the final image.

The ELPH 340 HS houses a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor with DIGIC 4+ image processing and a 12x optical zoom, and though the SX600 HD has similar basic specifications, the optical zoom extends to 18x, as well as fitting into a more compact body. Both offer the same Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity with smartphones for image sharing and remote control, 1080p video recording including a Hybrid AUTO mode with automatic four-second video capture whenever an image is taken, Creative Shot mode, and 46 image filters.
