Before cameraphones became serviceable replacements for the average point-and-shoot, the quest to shrink down digital cameras made perfect sense. But in 2013, Canon's PowerShot N seems like more of a gimmick than a solution.
Its cube-like body is awkward to hold, and the controls, which were moved the sides of the camera's body and touchscreen, feel clumsy. If Canon wants the point-and-shoot to remain relevant it should be less concerned with shrinking down its size, and more focused on beefing up its performance. -Adrian Covert
