18 July 2013
  • Summary: To kick off the start of CES 2013, Canon USA released one of the most unusual digicams we've ever seen. The PowerShot N is the first in a new line of simplistic cameras, and Canon explains that the N stands for "New", as in the way that you hold and shoot with this camera.
  • Pros: Interesting design gives the N a unique look, Image quality is better than many point-n-shoots, Response times are fast versus other beginner-level models, Touch screen LCD is very responsive, Can record images by touching the screen, LCD screen can tilt up to 90 degrees, PowerShot N is easy to u...
  • Cons: Price is too high, Images aren't sharp enough for creating large prints, Camera's operational design is awkward, Zoom ring design just doesn't work well for advancing 8x optical zoom, Shutter ring is too close to the camera body and too thin to use comfortably, On-screen menus should have been re...

  • Summary: Designed for the creative person who likes a bit of adventure in their imagery, the Canon N enters the market as an extremely pocketable point-and-shoot.

  • Pros: Sharp lens. Excellent high ISO performance. Wi-Fi. Instagram-like image filters. Touch screen display.
  • Cons: Difficult to hold and operate. Few physical controls. In-camera charging only. Limited manual filter capability. Weak flash.

  • Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot N has a square shape that is different from traditional point-and-shoots. It packs a unique control scheme that, while different, makes it awkward to hold and difficult to operate, and it can be set to apply a series of filters and crops to each photo you take—think of it like...

Canon PowerShot N ( White)

CNET
28 May 2013
  • Summary: If you can get past the supercompact design and reimagined controls, the Canon PowerShot N is a fine point-and-shoot companion for your smartphone.
  • Pros: The Canon PowerShot N is a fresh take on a simple point-and-shoot, cramming a lot of camera into the smallest space possible without being completely unusable. It has a handy tilting touch screen, built-in Wi-Fi for on-the-go sharing, and a couple of innovative snapshot modes.
  • Cons: The camera's controls and size might make it difficult to use for some. It doesn't do much beyond automatic snapshots. Battery life is relatively short, and the flash is weak.

Digitaltrends
11 May 2013
  • Conclusion: With smartphones taking over on the low-end point-and-shoot segment, we have always said that camera makers need to come up with something attractive or exit the business. The PowerShot N is a good attempt toward the right road, but in the wrong direction.
  • Pros: Intriguing concept, Responsive, fluid touchscreen that tilts, Compact
  • Cons: Can be awkward to use, Mediocre Wi-Fi experience, Needs more youth-oriented features
