Hands-on: Canon's new topsy-turvy ultra-compact snapper.

Canon PowerShot N review

 

The Canon PowerShot N is a symmetrical digital compact camera with fun filters

Compact design ; Creative Mode ; The fact that it's different

Unintuitive shutter button ; Focus can be rather soft ; Price

Canon PowerShot N

 

Bijou beauty or mediocre miniaturisation? In truth, there's a bit of both in the PowerShot N, Canon's truly compact compact. On the whole, though, this clever re-imagining of how cameras should look and perform puts the bias strongly towards the...

Very small, Innovative space-saving design, Built-in wifi, Removable battery and memory

Unconventional design won't suit everyone, Some fall off in focus towards edges, Some colours lack a little pop

Overall, it's a slightly mixed bag. The unconventional body shape performs surprisingly well, and Canon's re-imagining of how a compact camera can and should work has been successful. Indeed, it's been so successful that it might have been more...

Canon N review

 

It's fun and designed to be your smartphone companion

Easy to use ; One-touch Wi-Fi ; Small size ; Good sensor, Responsive touch-control

Slightly awkward to hold ; Little manual control ; Restricted LCD movement

Creative Shot mode is a clear strength of this camera, it produces some superb images and makes even the least imaginative photographer seem creative. However, not being able to connect directly to Twitter and Facebook etc introduces an extra layer of...

Excellent image quality, but the innovative design only brings marginal benefits

Canon PowerShot N review

 

Image quality is good, but the lens did exhibit some barrel distortion when shooting a test target at wide angle, and there's a fall off in the level of focus when comparing the centre of the frame with the corners, even at narrower aperture settings.

Set against competition like the Nikon Coolpix S01, the Canon PowerShot N is an attractive option, but you need to consider the price, too. At £270, it's not a cheap camera, actually more than twice the price of the Nikon. That naturally impacts our...

Canon PowerShot N review

 

The Canon PowerShot N is a peculiar little camera.

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...

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.

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.

Quality images and quirky settings from a phone-connecting camera

Canon PowerShot N review

 

The Canon PowerShot N will even fit in your breast pocket – but so will an iPhone. So why would you shoot snaps with a PowerShot N instead? That's the £225 question. And the answer may lie within its features.

8X optical zoom lens; Excellent image quality over a broad ISO range; Tilting screen for creative compositions; Solid movie mode with a dose of creativity; Built-in WiFi with mobile companion app available for free; Digic 5 process for snappy performance

Low battery warning doesn’t provide much lead time; Small size can make it difficult to hold securely; LCD controls most functions, very few buttons; Wi-Fi will disconnect quickly when pictures are not transferring

Quick Review - Canon PowerShot N

 

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.
