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.

Nikon has announced the much-rumored D610 24MP full-frame DSLR. Coming just a year after the D600, the D610 appears to be a very minor refresh, with a quiet continuous shooting mode, improved white balance and faster continuous shooting touted as its major changes. Beyond this, the D610 is essentially the same camera as the D600 and, given its launch at the same $2000 SRP, it’s extremely likely that the D610 replaces the older camera.
