Canon PowerShot N Review

January 19th, 2013 176 Comments   Posted in Digital Compact Cameras

Canon’s PowerShot N is regarded as the intriguing-designed compact camera around the showfloor only at that year’s CES. Now, Canon aren’t noted for gimmicks and that he PowerShot brand usually means staid reliability, therefore we were curious to determine what the organization was as much as.
It sticks out immediately because of its unconventional square design. We were not quite sure how you can hold it in the beginning, especially as there is no traditional shutter button on the top, nor the typical selection of controls around the back that website beneath your thumb.
Rather you grasp it similarly and relaxation your forefinger on top of the contact lens. You will find two controls here, a zoom ring controls the 8x optical zoom and merely behind this can be a second ring when pressed functions like a shutter button. It is a little awkward in the beginning but you will get accustomed to finding all of them with your finger – hands it to some friend though plus they may struggle.
It is available in both whitened and black, but could be decorated using a variety of clip-on half covers – like the blue one pictured here in addition to patterned versions. One anxiety about the look may be the small 870mAh battery power, although it reaches least exchangeable. The compact design does mean it takes only micro SD cards. Overall a great compact point and shoot camera

Canon PowerShot D20 Review

Fully sealed against moisture and dirt, and using a fully-enclosed folded lens design, Canon claims the D20 is waterproof to 10m. Should you want to dive even deeper then an optional WP-DC45 casing is also available, and for around £175 this will increase the D20’s useable depth to 40m.
Last but not least in the ruggedised department is freeze-proofing that enables the D20 to be used in temperatures as low as minus 10˚C.
The more eagle-eyed among you may have noticed that so far, so very D10. However, the ruggedised specifications of the exterior are pretty much where the similarities end. Internally, the D20 is actually quite a different beast to its predecessor and comes with a generous number of hardware and specification upgrades.

In addition to waterproofing, the Canon PowerShot D20 has also been shock tested to a height of 1.5m, although Canon does not offer any guarantee against breakage should you actually drop – and break – your brand new D20 from such a height.

Canon PowerShot S100 Review

Like the S95, the S100 can be slipped into a shirt or trouser pocket, whereas the larger G12 is more of a coat-pocket-sized model. Naturally this makes the S100 more attractive as a ‘take anywhere’ camera for keen enthusiasts.
Although the S100 doesn’t look dramatically different from the S95, we are told that Canon went back to the drawing board to design the new camera – we’ve even seen a few design sketches to prove it.
Canon’s new PowerShot S100 looks a very worthy successor to the popular S95. The manufacturer has used technology from across its whole imaging business (video, SLR, lens and compact camera) to produce what appears to be an exciting pocket-sized camera.
