The Canon Powershot N was released in January 2013.

The Canon 'Powershot N Facebook® Ready' was released in August 2013? It is basically the same camera as the Powershot N but with a change to the WiFi button that allows it to automatically connect to Facebook rather than a local PC.

Firmware info Edit


CHDK SpecialtiesEdit

The Powershot N Facebook® Ready needs special steps when creating an SD card using STICK .  See this link :  Installing CHDK on a Canon N Facebook Camera .

If using the camera with a USB Remote Cable , be aware that the camera battery is charged via the USB port and thus may draw a lot more current than other Canon Powershot cameras.  Existing USB remote trigger devices may not work with this camera.

For DevelopersEdit

General InfoEdit

  • the camera will attempt to autoboot (SD card lock method) when :
    • the microSD card cover is left open AND
    • the microSD card has "BOOTDISK" at the appropriate place in the boot sector for the card format (FAT16 vs FAT32) AND
    • a valid DISKBOOT.BIN file is located in the root of the microSD card file structure.
  • to enter <ALT> mode,  quickly press the "wifi" button located immediately above the playback button
  • the camera will start when USB power is applied to the USB port,  in addition to the normal power switch or playback switch startup.
  • when started via the playback button,  the camera will not switch to shooting mode when the shutter button (ring?) is pressed.  Shooting mode can be entered by a second press of the playback button.
