Canon powershot N 1I’ve said before that Canon isn’t the most innovative company in the camera world. So I was surprise to get the press announcement for the Powershot N. This strange little camera houses a 12.1 Megapixel sensor with a touch screen interface and “wireless capabilities” which i’m guessing is built in Wi-Fi though I can’t find anything in the specs.

Oddly the Powershot N also includes a built in IS System and a DIGIC 5 Image Processor. Honestly I’m not really sure where a camera like this fits in. Maybe this is the ultimate facebook self portrait tween camera with it’s “creative modes” (insert sepia tone here). Either way if your kid needs an odd looking camera to carry around in their back pack the Powershot N is available for pre-order on B&H right now for $299.
