More Canon PowerShot N Tidbits

Above: Engadget’s first impressions. Canon USA PowerShot N page.

Digitalcamerainfo’s first impressions: The PowerShot N is Canon’s boldest move toward a future that just won’t come to pass: a future where compact cameras can go toe-to-toe with mobile devices in terms of wireless connectivity. In the (harsh) conclusion they write:

At its core, the N is just a capital-letters Cheap Point-and-Shoot with a wacky design. There is simply no good reason for a camera like this to have wireless connectivity if it can’t handle sharing as seamlessly as a smartphone.

PetaPixel’s first impressions:

The uber-compact body looks and feels nice in the hand, and can easily be carried around in your pocket without causing too much of a bulge. It’s light, and won’t weigh you or your bag down if you carry it around everywhere you go. It’s a camera that’s just as compact as a smartphone, but offers nice advantages: a longer-reaching optical lens and a larger sensor are two of the main ones.

Slashgear’s first impressions:

That’s a healthy amount of features for this little 12-megapixel shooter, but this still has plenty of the features you’d expect. These include low-light performance, ISO up to 6400, and the ability to capture video in 1080p. Canon says the PowerShot N will begin shipping in April 2013 and will come with a price tag of $300, which doesn’t seem too bad.

The PowerShot N, which will cost $299 and be available soon, can be pre-ordered at the following links (along with all the other Canon gear that was announced at CES 2013, click on shopname): B&H | Adorama.
