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.
