Canon's PowerShot N100 Takes Selfies While Shooting Photographs

If you've ever felt left out taking other people's photos, this camera will make you feel less alone. The Canon PowerShot N100 (Canon calls it a 'Story Camera') has a rear-facing 25mm camera which can take a photo or video of the photographer at the same moment said photographer takes a photo with the front-facing camera. The selfie is then superimposed on a corner of the photo or video which was taken.

Besides its self-referential nature, the N100 comes with decent specs; it has the same 12MP 1/1.7" CMOS sensor with Digic 6 image processor from the PowerShot S120. The camera has a 24-120mm (in 35mm equivalent, 5x optical zoom) f/1.8-5.7 lens, a 3" tilting touchscreen, built-in Wi-Fi and 330 shots battery life.

Local pricing and availability have yet to be announced, but Canon USA says it's expected in May for US$349.99.

Wait till James Franco gets a load of this.
