Canon-PowerShot-N100-Gear-Patrol Canon PowerShot N100
Perfect for the narcissistic and/or selfie-obsessed, the N100 features a rear-facing camera that records the photographer while the photographer is capturing something that used to be referred to as the “subject” but is now technically known as “that other thing”. The rear-facing camera’s image is superimposed over the ostensibly more important front shot for a floating head/picture-in-picture effect. There’s wi-fi and NFC, 1080p video capability, and the front-facing f/1.8 lens shoots 12.1MP photos. Built-in filters bring Insta magic to your photos, a hybrid auto mode captures a few seconds of video before each photo, and a story mode compiles highlights of your recent shots. $350
