Canon PowerShot N Review

14 August 2013
  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot N is a compact camera very small, square in shape and characterized by an interesting display swivel upwards, which also acts as a support for the camera. Apart from the innovative design, we can highlight the Wi-Fi, Full HD movies, the creative mode and various automatic functions. Obviously, given the dimensions, optics suffer a bit, but then you would not expect anything different in a compact like that.
  • Pros: Wi-Fi connectivity; tilting touchscreen display, display resolution, Smart Auto with 58 scenes; ring on the lens; Dimensions; Creative Mode.
  • Cons: Effective Focal Length objective; resolution sensor is not very high; optical quality.

Canon PowerShot N

Steve's Digicams
18 July 2013
  • Excerpt: 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. They've taken some pretty common PowerShot features, mixed in some new additions, and stuffed them all into an extremely compact body that offers a minimalistic design; one that we can't help but think...

Canon PowerShot N Review: Creative and Connected

Digital Camera Review
9 July 2013
  • Excerpt: 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. This tiny camera packs quite a bit into it's seriously small 3.09 x 2.37 x 1.15 inch body--a 12.1-megapixel 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor, a 8x zoom lens with a 28-224 mm (equivalent), and a 2.8-inch TFT LCD screen--leaving very little room for anything else.

At this point, Canon will try N-ything.

28 June 2013
  • Conclusion: If there's one topic on which I'm just totally ignorant, it's got to be fashion. Supposedly the PowerShot N is a fashion-forward, chic design intended to turn heads. But if that's why you're interested in buying one, we must warn you that the N was typically met with quizzical looks, not ooh's and ah's, at least in our office. As far as actual photography, this review probably would've been a lot easier and less confusing if the N took lousy pictures too. But it doesn't.

Canon PowerShot N

PC Magazine
21 June 2013
  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot N packs a neat Creative Shot mode, but it doesn't let you select your favorite filters and its design makes it a frustrating camera with which to 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.

Canon PowerShot N

19 June 2013
  • 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 Instagram in your camera.

Canon's PowerShot N is a pocket-size smartphone companion

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.

Expert Review

23 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Since it doesn't have the essential telecommunication features the Canon PowerShot N clearly isn't going to take the place of a phone, but the manufacturer hopes that we will use it in conjunction with one.
