  • Summary: Even though there are a lot of Canon PowerShot cameras on the market, they all seem to have a similar look and feel, both in the rectangular design of the camera, as well as the very basic menu structure. So it is interesting to see Canon take a chance with what appears to be a completely new design in its PowerShot N camera, which was , where Canon touted the N's lack of traditional buttons.

Steve's Digicams
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. 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...
  • 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 use, Camera is very small, Built-in Wi-Fi capability has several different options for making a connection, Can use camera right-side up or upside down; screen orientation adju...
  • 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 redesigned to take advantage of touch screen LCD, Included toggle switch isn't as useful as it could be, Battery life could be better, LCD is a little small at 2.8 inches, Tilt ...

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.

  • 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 PowerShot N Review

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. We can’t say it’s a must-buy camera for every-day use or for travel because it’s too awkward to use for most folks, and the price is a bit high for what it is.
  • Pros: Intriguing concept, Responsive, fluid touchscreen that tilts, Compact
  • Cons: Can be awkward to use, Mediocre Wi-Fi experience, Needs more youth-oriented features

Canon PowerShot N Hands-On

photographybay.com
14 January 2013
  • Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot N is definitely one of the most unique cameras released this year at CES 2013 . While it offers common features found in modern point and shoot cameras (like a 12.MP sensor and an 8x optical zoom lens with image stabilization), the form-factor and control scheme of the PowerShot N puts it on an entirely different playing field than your typical pocket camera.

Canon N

Imaging Resource
7 January 2013
  • Excerpt: One look at the unusual, square-shaped Canon PowerShot N -- its front panel dominated by an image-stabilized 8x optical zoom lens -- is enough to tell you it's different from the average camera. Were it not for the strap lugs jutting from either side, it would actually look more like a network camera than your typical point-and-shoot compact. The PowerShot N doesn't even have a shutter button.
  • Pros: Nifty, albeit unusual, square-shaped design and solid build, Very compact and pocketable, 12.1-megapixel, 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor delivers higher resolution images than most smartphone cameras, 8x optical zoom lens with a 35mm-equivalent 28-224mm reach, Built-in Wi-Fi for easy sharing of photos and videos, 2.8-inch LCD touchscreen that's tiltable up to 90 degrees, Touch shutter function works well, Can easily operate the camera upside down for capturing shots at high a...

Quick Review - Canon PowerShot N

TechSmart
5 July 2013
  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot N may seem odd at first, but that is because it marches to the beat of its own, creative tune. When all is said and done, the camera’s unique, whimsical and funky approach is a breath of fresh air.
