Canon PowerShot N100 review

 

While Canon should be commended for again thinking outside the box, the PowerShot N100 is packed with more tricks than actual must-have features.

Canon PowerShot N100 review

 

The Canon PowerShot N100 is an odd camera, but in completely different ways than the first N series model .

The Canon PowerShot N100 packs a larger-than-usual sensor and a lens that starts at a bright f1.8 aperture, a combination that gets you better photo quality in low-light conditions than you'd get from a typical point-and-shoot. Shooting performance is...

It's heavier and bigger than the similarly spec'ed PowerShot S120; the design overall isn't great; the rear-facing camera is sort of a waste; NFC is underutilized.

It's also possible to use your phone or tablet as a remote control. A Live View feed streams from the N100 to the display of your handheld device, but control is limited. You can adjust the zoom, control the flash, set the self-timer, and fire the...
