Canon PowerShot N100 Price, Specs, Where to Buy

Canon PowerShot N100

Canon has just announced the PowerShot N100, which it’s branding as a ‘Story Camera’. The main feature that gives the camera this moniker is its rear-facing 25mm equiv. camera, which can take a photo or video of the photographer at the moment the shutter release is pressed (this works for stills and video, as well). The image from the rear-camera then put into one of the corners of the actual image/video that was taken. The N100’s ‘Story Highlights’ feature can put together a video montage of recent events.
