Facebook users get a canon camera
Canon has gift for Facebookers, a 12.1-megapixel and a DIGIC 5 processor PowerShot N Facebook Camera. The camera let’s you take pictures and upload them to Facebook with a press of a Facebook dedicated button that allows quick uploading without having to drag your images onto your computer first. The camera also allows the user to subsequently comment on and share with others the pictures on Facebook.
The Powershot N Facebook camera has a lens unit that consists of a 28 mm wide angle lens with 8x optical zoom and a high sensitivity CMOS sensor and a 2.8 inch LCD touch screen display. The camera also a number of cool features like face recognition, Intelligent IS System for auto optical image stabilization that allows only the best shot to be stored, and creative shot tool that adds creative layers to a shot. The camera is also capable of shooting full HD videos at 1080p and be uploaded to Facebook directly. The video feature in particular allows for the creation of composite video composed of multiple clips via Hybrid Auto mode, something that happens over the course of the day as photographs are taken.
The 12.1MP camera offers five artistic versions of your photo so you can choose the best and share with friends on Facebook. Unlike smartphones or even the Samsung Galaxy Camera, it connects to the internet only via Wi-Fi and not 3G so you’ll have to wait until you can have access to Wi-Fi network. The other draw back is that the camera only connects to Facebook and not any other social media platform. It is expected that the camera will launch in September at an introductory price of $299.99.
