Canon PowerShot N2 Preview

Canon has announced a successor to the elegantly designed N. The new PowerShot N2 looks similar to its predecessor, as this camera’s main feature is a general lack of external buttons in favor of a touchscreen approach.

However, under the hood, upgrades include a larger 16.1MP CMOS image sensor, image stabilization, and the newer DIGIC 6 image processor, which powers a number of advanced features like Zoom Framing Assist (the camera will automatically frame shots for whole body, upper body, or face shots), Zoom Memory (return to your last zoom settings), Face Detection and Tracking AF, Creative Shot Mode, Advance Movie Shooting (super slow motion, quick motion, and filters), and Smart AUTO (the camera chooses one of  58 pre-selected still image or 21 video scenes that fit shooting conditions).Canon PowerShot N2 Features16.1MP CMOS image sensorDIGIC 6 image processor8x optical zoom 28-224mm equivalentZoom Framing AssistWhole BodyUpper BodyFaceZoom MemoryIntelligent IS (Image Stabilization)2.8″ titlting touchscreen LCD displayFull 1080/60p HD VideoFace DetectionTracking AF (AutoFocus)6.4 fps Continuous Shooting (with Tracking AF off)Creative Shot ModeRetroMonochromeSpecialNaturalAdvanced Movie ShootingSuper Slow MotionQuick MotionVarious FiltersSmart AUTO58 pre-defined still scenes; 21 videoBuilt-in Wi-FiMobile Device Connect ButtonCanon iMAGE GATEWAYThe Canon PowerShot N2 will be available this December (2014), in black or white, for $299.99.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR Preview

Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR Preview

Canon has finally announced a successor to its beloved EOS 7D. The EOS 7D Mark II is a powerful mid-level DSLR. In fact, as of September 2014, it is the most powerful EOS camera in the line up, being the first to add dual DIGIC 6 image processors to a 20.2-megapixel APS-C sized CMOS image sensor as well as a new 65-point All Cross-Type AF system. In other words, the 7D MKII is fast, capable of shooting at 10 frames-per-second continuously for up to 31 full resolution RAW images, or up to a staggering 1,090 Large Fine JPEGs. With capabilities like those, you’ll appreciate the  incorporated Canon Dual Pixel CMOS AF (DAF) Technology, which translates to  dramatically improved AF performance in video and Live View still imaging modes — in other words, the 7D MKII is really good at tracking fast-moving subjects.Or maybe you’re more into shooting video. The 7D MKII has you covered there as well. You can record Full HD 1080p video at 24 or 30fps, or 720p HD video at 60fps to create stunning slow motion projects. The 7D MKII has a built-in microphone, a headphone jack for audio monitoring, and even a mini HDMI port for recording uncompressed HD video to external recorders. Finally, the 7D works with Canon’s STM (Stepping Motor) lens, which are virtually silent as they adjust focal settings. Canon EOS 7D Mark II Features20.2MP APS-C CMOS image sensorDual DIGIC 6 image processors100% field of view Intelligent Viewfinder3.0″ Clear View II LCD (1.04M dots)New Read More…
