Optical Image Stabilizer
Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical, providing excellent image quality in many difficult shooting situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image. And because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers.
12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor
The PowerShot N100 camera employs a Canon 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor to capture precious moments in the quality they deserve. Delivering state-of-the-art imaging performance and optimized for use in compact cameras, the sensor utilizes a sophisticated light-capturing design to provide high sensitivity for improved high ISO capture with reduced noise. It is capable of rapidly capturing and moving image data to the processor, enabling faster continuous shooting and faster autofocus.
DIGIC 6 Image Processor
A camera made for capturing the moment in a whole new way, the PowerShot N100 camera is equipped with the very latest Canon proprietary processor, the DIGIC 6 Image Processor. With the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, improved light sensitivity allows for higher resolution with less noise when shooting in dark conditions, and Dynamic IS detects and compensates for tilt and parallel movement (shift blur) to create video that's exceptionally free of distortion. The DIGIC 6 Image Processor also enhances the performance capabilities of the PowerShot N100 with outstanding processing power for the camera's Dual Capture mode. And video recording is better than ever, as the DIGIC 6 Image Processor enables Full HD in MP4 format. Highly compressed MP4 video not only preserves space on your memory card but also improves playback on mobile devices.
Canon HS SYSTEM helps provide excellent low-light performance
The PowerShot N100 camera features the renowned Canon HS SYSTEM to capture the moment with spectacular depth, detail and emotional resonance. With the Canon HS SYSTEM – a combination of the camera's 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and the powerful DIGIC 6 Image Processor – you'll experience excellent tracking performance even in low light, and achieve gorgeous still image quality at high ISO speeds; beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The Canon HS SYSTEM also lets you use higher shutter speeds to capture clearer images with reduced noise and blur in a variety of situations for incredible photos and videos.
Creative Shot mode
Expanding upon the innovative features of the PowerShot N, the PowerShot N100 camera features an advanced Creative Shot mode to make creating artistic photos even more fun. In Creative Shot mode, the camera captures the original composition and automatically produces and saves five additional variations by using advanced Canon technologies to apply filter options based on the individual scene, subject and exposure. On the PowerShot N100 camera, over 40 filter choices are available and are grouped into Retro, Monochrome, Special and Natural categories to make exploring the world of artistic photography fun and easy. With Creative Shot mode, the result is stunning artistic photos that are perfect for sharing.
Easily preserve the story of those special moments with the PowerShot N100 camera's advanced Hybrid Auto. Hybrid Auto records up to four seconds of video every time you shoot a still image, then automatically joins the clips and pictures* into a video that captures the essence of special days: vacations, important occasions, or any time you're shooting many shots in one day. Hybrid Auto automatically recognizes the scene and optimizes camera settings to capture the highest possible image quality. The resulting 720p HD video is properly exposed, crisp and steady.
And with the PowerShot N100, not only is the “highlight reel” stunningly beautiful, you can also tell the story of your day with behind-the-scenes input. Select the size of the images shot with the rear-facing “Story Camera” and position them as you like to further personalize your highlight video. As the story doesn't stop with the press of the shutter, the PowerShot N100 camera's Hybrid Auto continues to record approximately two extra seconds of the photographer's expression, resulting in a short video that captures the full emotion of the moment.
3.0-inch tilt, capacitive touch panel LCD
Leverage the flexibility of the PowerShot N100 camera's innovative 3.0-inch capacitive touch panel LCD for more fun, creative shooting. More than just a means of reviewing your photos, the LCD monitor allows for 90-degrees of tilt to open up new perspectives when framing shots – shoot diagonally, horizontally, from low angles or high for the perfect emphasized shot, even when using the rear-facing secondary camera. The top-mounted hinge keeps the PowerShot N100 compact, even when folded out. Adjust settings and modes using the intuitive touch-screen menu – use gestures to zoom, rotate, and select images. The versatile control provided by the capacitive LCD makes operating the PowerShot N100 an easy and fun experience.

You can simply touch the dedicated movie button to start and stop video recording, so you're always ready to capture the moment as it happens. The camera records in lifelike 1080p Full HD, so even when played back on a big-screen HDTV, your videos are crystal clear, with smooth action and beautifully natural color. With the power of the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, video can be captured at 30 frames per second in the popular iFrame Movie or MP4 formats.

It's easy to capture clear, steady images with the PowerShot N100, even in low light without using a tripod. That's because the camera is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS. The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation – allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and active Tripod IS modes. New icons clearly mark the image stabilization mode, whether you're shooting still images or video.
Smart AUTO for the PowerShot N100 makes it easier than ever to capture the sharp, bright, colorful images and videos you're looking for. By assessing various factors in both the background and the subject, the system recognizes 58 predefined shooting situations and automatically selects the camera settings that will yield the best possible results.

Hard-to-capture shots such as moving subjects, night scenes, backlit subjects, and landscapes at evening or on a bright, snowy day are instantly and effortlessly captured as “keeper” shots. Smart AUTO makes the PowerShot N100 ideal for capturing excellent quality still images and video on the go.
The PowerShot N100 features ECO Mode, which provides more shots per single charge through LCD monitor and camera power management. ECO Mode can be activated for easy power preservation when an outlet is unavailable or the moment is too exciting to put the camera down.
