Well, this is an interesting one. For years camera makers have been releasing cameras that, well, seem a bit on the unimaginative side. They sort of parrot generations of previous designs with some little design tweaks here and there.
But the Powershot N looks quite interesting. I don’t know how practical or actually usable it is, never having tried one, but it’s definitely a case of a camera manufacturer having a little sit down and coming up with something new and unusual!
Basically it’s a small compact camera, square from the front, which can be used from any orientation. It has a flip-up touchscreen display, and some fun user interface tricks like a rotating ring for adjusting zoom.
