The Canon “Instagram” camera, #CES2013

My favorite #CES gadget so far? This Canon “Instagram” like camera (PowerShot N). It has several filters you can place over photos. Fairly tiny (3 inches by 2.5). And it has Wi-Fi connectivity so you can wirelessly pull photos from it on your iPhone (or go straight to Facebook from it). The screen tilts, which is good for creative angle shots. Canon says the camera was “designed entirely around one-handed use”. It goes on sale in April, for $300 bucks (kinda pricey- i’d like to test drive it myself before deciding if it’s worth it).

BTW, expect many more wi-fi enabled cameras. It’s almost a “must have” feature for digital compacts. We live in an age where the most popular camera uploading photos to flickr and Facebook are iPhones. So connectivity is key (or get a Eye-Fi Card).

(here are all the geeky specs about the camera)
