I'm curious what selling points will be used to differentiate this from the cameras that exist on smartphones. They went to great lengths to make this friendly to "smart-phone photographers," but what's really going to want to make them shell out a few hundred dollars for this? I'd argue that general photo quality has gone downhill over the past five years or so, especially with the plethora of filters applied haphazardly to photos in the first place. But I'm not sure that the average consumer cares enough about actual image quality to warrant having a second device.

Anyway, interesting camera. I love the design, just curious about who it's going to appeal to and if it will be a success.

You know, this actually looks pretty good for my uses.

I've been considering an EOS M for a long time as a "spare" camera - something I'd carry around with me day-to-day when I don't have my SLR around. However, it's still too big to keep in my pocket, and assuming the PowerShot has decent-enough image quality (I mean come on, phone pictures are *awful*), then I might end up picking one up!

The USB charging is a nice idea. Wonder if it has a sealed battery, or if you can swap them in and out.

It's CES! What did you expect?

I'm still waiting for Samsung's new "unprecedented new shape" HDTV; I'm betting it's going to be a dead clone of a 55" white iPad2, with a portrait/landscape swivel mount.

 ;D

Love CES

I am not interested as there is nothing lookworthy behind the cameras I have  ;D

Brilliant, I’m pre-ordering two. Happy to be an early adopter for that little bute.

Glad to see I was wrong about that pre-release teaser picture it wasn’t a giant c**k after all

People are quick to hate. Remember when the 5DMKIII came out  :o yet now everyone things its incredible...

Think its quite intriguing! I would give it a go!
Really? I still think the 5D3 has a craptastic sensor, with its decade old DR capabilities.

Not everyone bends over to Canon's marketing machine. Me and most of my friends are still shooting our 5D2s, happily waiting for the 5D4 / 5DX or whatever the next generation will be called.

I guess people who think the 5D3 is a great upgrade from the 5D2, will also like the Powershot N. They will buy anything that Canon throws at them.

Why all the hate? This small camera has the same sensor as the SX260, which is the best travelzoom (and doesn't have that low-end 16MP sensor you see in 95% of all compacts). It also has Digic 5, unlike those other Powershots that are just announced...

Every time a marketer uses the term "unleashed" or "unleashes", a cute puppy dies somewhere. Those heartless bastards!

Dude, just get a D600.  The grass is really gDReener, the colors are bDRighter and you'll be just DRelighted with the non-craptastic (but possibly oil-spattered) sensor.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses
