canon-powershot-n-compact-camera.jpgCanon are gunning for Samsung’s MultiView MV800 tilt-touch screen compact camera crown with the PowerShot N at CES 2013.

A 12.1 MP snapper using a CMOS sensor, it has an adjustable 2.8-inch touchscreen display on the rear, letting you flip and twist the camera for complete control from even the most awkward of shooting angles.

Measuring 78.6 x 60.2 x 29.3mm, the camera is powered by the DIGIC 5 image processing engine, well known for strong low-light performance. An 8X optical zoom is also onboard (28-464mm in 35mm terms) with image stabilisation, with a control ring around the lens that can be used for zoom controls as well as shutter release.

There’s also built in Wi-Fi in the PowerShot N, meaning if you’re anywhere near a Wi-Fi hotspot you’ll be able to upload photos directly to Facebook and videos to YouTube from within the camera’s UI, without the need to pop the memory card into a computer.

Due out in April, it’ll set you back £269.
