Canon PowerShot N – My Initial Impression

A day before attending Canon Singapore media launch event, I received a nice brown box, consisting of a press release and a wooden hand. My first reaction, what had that wooden hand got to do with a Canon compact digital camera? That got me interested, I was like “being hooked” and decided to look closer to examine the wooden hand. There was a nice little booklet on the wooden hand grip, almost exactly the size of the Canon PowerShot N that I touched the very next day during Canon Singapore media launch event. The press release information and details can be found here if you like to read more about it!

The tagline is “GETaGRIP” and it fits perfectly for the Canon PowerShot N. When I held the Canon PowerShot N during the media launch with other Canon camera products, I was looking forward to touching and playing with Canon PowerShot N. It’s fit perfectly into the size of my palm, just take a look at the photo below!
