[CES 2014] Brace yourselves, folks, for another round of digital camera releases at this year’s edition of CES. Canon has just unveiled the new Canon PowerShot N100 to deliver unique storytelling capabilities for photo enthusiasts in a tiny package. This is a new concept camera that will boast of a new body style and unique, new creative options, letting you create as well as relate your visual stories through the enablement of the photographer to become part of the image being captured. How is this possible? Why, with the introduction of a new Dual Capture mode, of course. This would let users simultaneously capture special moments using the Main Camera, and there is the Story Camera, which happens to be a rear facing sub-camera, that will shoot you as well, embedding your picture into the main image eventually.
Not only that, the Story Highlights mode will intuitive create a highlight reel of images and video so that a customized movie is created, as it depicts a story as seen through the photographer’s eyes. Forget about using complex software to assemble such footage, although you can be sure that it will be an extremely bare bones example, and any other third party software should be able to perform a far more complex job than this. Other hardware specifications include Wi-Fi capability, a 5x optical zoom, a 24mm Wide-Angle f/1.8 lens, a 12.1-Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor. Expect the Canon PowerShot N100 to arrive this May for $349.99 a pop in white or black shades. [Press Release]
