While I’m not crazy about these little cameras, this is the lowest price I’ve seen on the Canon PowerShot N at $129.99 (reg. $299.99) through Dec. 14. I actually think that’s more of a fair price point that what it launched at. It’s a quirky and kind of gimicky camera but is suited to deliver decent quality for a $130 price point.

The Canon PowerShot N is definitely one of the most unique cameras released this year at CES 2013.

The Canon PowerShot N is a new 12.1MP compact camera with a unique design. It has a a shutter and zoom ring on the top and bottom to aid with snapping images from a variety of angles. The PowerShot N also captures 1080p HD video and can wirelessly share images to iOS and Android devices via a Mobile Device Connect Button.
A new Creative Shot mode automatically applies “a series of artistic elements by varying composition, lighting and color. Creative Shot will render five different variations of the shot in different color modes, crops, and styles, delivering creative new perspectives automatically while still maintaining the original image.”
The Canon PowerShot N should be available in April for $299.99. Check availability here at B&H Photo.
