Canon has promised one-touch connectivity to Wi-Fi to make it effortless to upload pictures and movies to the internet your smartphone. To expand its capability greater than a smartphone, the PowerShot N features an equivalent 28-224mm lens along with a 12 megapixel
CMOS sensor combined with the Digic 5 processor.
In conjunction with all other camera manufacturers', Canon is frantically trying to find some way to have their compact camera stay relevant as more and more users decide they're happy using just their smartphones. So, while the 8x zoom lens, 12MP image sensor, and the Canon Digic 5 processor all are instantaneously familiar because of existing Canon PowerShot cameras, Canon is attempting to provide a connectivity and shooting experience significantly more engaging than the typical compact camera.

Wi-Fi capability along with apps to allow communicating with a smartphone, however today's current adaptations have been too ungainly to be a convincing reason to buy.
