The thing about New York City is it’s exactly that — new. There’s always a restaurant opening or a pop-up shop...popping up, and all of a sudden you’re like, “How am I supposed to know which wok shop is the best wok shop?!”

It’s overwhelming to navigate — especially if you recently moved here with visions of Girls dancing in your head (you know who you are) and have yet to find a misogynistic artiste to grope you on the High Line. That’s why we enlisted a couple of NYC pros, DJ Mia Moretti and fashion blogger Bryanboy, to show us their version of the city that never sleeps — all through the lens of a Canon PowerShot N camera.

Mia makes for a great tour guide — she’s been spotted everywhere from Chelsea Clinton’s wedding to Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” video — so you know the girl gets around town. Which makes the PowerShot N camera an ideal way for her to share her world with us: its wireless capabilities make it possible to document her day-to-day without sacrificing resolution. And with style like hers, every pixel counts.

When she’s hungry, Mia hits Wo Hop in Chinatown. Established in 1938, the walls are covered with signatures and photos of devoted fans who’ve left their mark on this downtown gem. Mia took this shot using the PowerShot N camera's Creative Shot mode, which automatically creates an additional five unique images every time you take a picture.

As the DJ half of DJ plus violin duo The Dolls, Mia can often be found working at Heavy Roc Studios — the Chinatown recording studio that’s home to electro-sweethearts like The Knocks. Afterward, we headed to artist-turned-businessman Curtis Kulig's SoHo loft with Margot, The Dolls’ violinist, where the three worked on the cover art for their latest single.

East River State Park is known for its weekly food festival Smorgasburg, its killer waterfront concerts, and its beautiful view of the skyline — but Mia heads there when she wants to bike ride. She found rental bikes as stylish as she is at nearby bike shop Ride Brooklyn. The shot below was taken using the PowerShot N camera's black and white mode.

Bryan Grey Yambao, known as Bryanboy to the internet, might be another face you recognize — he documents his sartorial escapades on his popular fashion site and is loved by Racked — where he confessed his favorite way to shoot his outfits is with his Canon camera. Here’s how — and where — he gets down in New York.

Fashion bloggers gotta blog — and shop. So Bryan took us to FiveStory NY in the heart of Madison Avenue. The store specializes in men’s, women’s and kids’ ready-to-wear, along with contemporary art, home decor, and countless other treasures Bryan swears by.

Next, we checked out the South Street Seaport — a legendary NYC landmark with beautiful views and tons of history. While Pier 17 is a popular shopping hub, Bryan has personal reasons for spending his time there. A native of the Philippines, he feels most at home when he’s close to water, and the view here reminds him of home.

Then we hit the nearby Pumphouse Park in Battery Park — an “undocumented” park next to World Financial Center Plaza and the North Cove Marina. Bryan likes it because it’s a bit off the map — which means it’s the perfect place to relax in an otherwise chaotic neighborhood.

Because inspiration can strike at any moment — especially in NYC — we attended a Canon pop-up art installation at Hudson River Park's Pier 45, where Bryan shot images he was able to share instantly using the PowerShot N camera's enhanced built-in wireless. His cellphone camera was a little jealous, but when the right photo op strikes, you don't want to choose between quality and sharability.

If you’re looking for a more personalized tour of these NYC locations, have no fear — we captured Mia and Bryan on film as they documented their city. Stay tuned for more from both of them.
