PowerShot N100 & Legria mini X

PowerShot N100 – two cameras in one

PowerShot N100 takes last years PowerShot N camera and adds a rear facing camera – yes can can take a photo of the photographer at the same time as taking the main picture. Just for those photographers who like to hide behind the camera of course.

So it’s got 12MP and a 5x zoom IS lens, DIGIC 6, WiFi & Near Field Communications (NFC) so you can control it from a SmartPhone or tablet.

I’m left wondering if today’s users will be able to see and value the image quality if their mobile or tablet screen is the real ending point of this device. Surely all that is left now is to put a SIM card slot in it 🙂

Legria Mini X

Legria mini X

Last years Legria Mini was a great idea and appealed to bloggers – or was aimed at them at least. One of the weakest points was the lack of mic input and headphone output, so now the new Legria Mini X has both and this should make it a pretty good bit of kit. In the update is an improved on board stereo mic and audio can be recorded from external mic inputs in linear PCM uncompressed format for better audio quality.

With built-in WiFi you can remote control the camera directly from your smart phone or tablet – great if the camera is in an out of reach location and you need to start or stop the recording, and monitor the frame.

Canon have also updated the IXUS and PowerShot SX ranges with two new models, which will come in a range of colours. In addition to the familiar red colours the IXUS 265 HS is also available in a cool purple colour, kind of reminds me of an old 5MP Digital IXUS i zoom from way back in time.
