Nikon's Android-powered camera isn't as cool as you think

www.extremetech.com
Various companies have been threatening in recent years to release Android-based devices that are neither tablets nor phones. Every trade show seems to have at least one refrigerator, TV, or in-car entertainment system powered by Android. These products have been almost universally held back from sale, but still the concept...

Fujifilm's XF1 makes a fashion statement at Photokina, we go hands-on

www.engadget.com
Point-and-shoot or fashion accessory? This is the conundrum posed by the XF1, a new retro-styled point-and-shoot from Fujifilm. It's a nice looking camera with a solid and fairly light build, certainly, and while the faux leather (in black, red or tan) might not be for everyone, the company was...

Sony NEX-7 review

Up close with Canon's tiny, Wi-Fi-enabled PowerShot N

www.pcworld.com
LAS VEGAS--Canon's headline camera announcement at CES 2013 is a unique little point-and-shoot that boasts a tilting touchscreen, built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, and somehow, an 8X-optical-zoom lens (28mm to 224mm). All those things are packed into a camera that isn't too much bigger than a short (and hinged) stack of Saltines....

Canon PowerShot N hands-on (video)

www.engadget.com
What's square and rounded with white all over? That'd be Canon's new PowerShot N -- a point-and-shoot that can be held in any which way. At first glance, it's a bit of a strange proposition -- the camera's square shape is admittedly a bit bizarre, and it does't look...
