Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today recognizes that its parent company, Canon Inc., announced the Company’s PowerShot N digital camera (released in April 2013) has been recognized with the Bronze International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) in the Entertainment category by the Industrial Designers Society of America.
Considered the preeminent international design awards competition, the International Design Excellence Awards, launched in 1980, aim to foster business and public understanding of the importance of industrial design excellence to the quality of life and the economy. Products are reviewed based on not only their functions and aesthetic quality, but also such factors as level of innovativeness, as well as benefits to users and to society as a whole. The awards program recognizes the best product designs from a wide range of areas, including industrial products, consumer electronics and household goods, along with vehicles, sports items and furnishings.
Canon developed the PowerShot N digital camera for users looking to capture and share high-quality photos via social networking sites using smartphones, tablets and similar devices. Featuring an all-new design and unique operability, the camera includes features such as a Creative Shot mode, which automatically adjusts composition, color and lighting to produce five unique images along with the original photo, as well as a shutter ring that shifts vertically to snap photos. In addition, a Mobile Device Connect Button allows the camera to easily connect to a smartphone or other device with a single touch of a button.
In addition to the IDEA bronze award, the Canon PowerShot N digital camera has also been honored with a prestigious 2013 Good Design Award in Japan and 2014 iF Design Award in Germany.
Encouraged by the recognition of the Company’s design excellence, Canon will continue striving to realize products that combine the highest levels of performance and design.

In the rush to compete in the digital age, a successful digital transformation is essential, but many organizations are setting themselves up for failure. There’s a common misconception that the process is just about technology, but it’s not. It’s about your business. It shouldn’t be treated as an isolated IT project; it should be driven by business needs with the committed involvement of a range of stakeholders.
