The Un-disposable Camera

The Un-disposable Camera

With his project ‘Timeless Capture’ designer Brian Matanda wants us to slowdown and literally smell the roses before we take a picture of them. Our focus is on tech-specs, angle shots and apps that add artificial glam. In a way the ‘subject’ of our photography looses its relevance. So let’s re-focus on the art of photography, and by the way this camera is a combination of sand blasted aluminum and polished teak and ‘strong archetypal form to produce a timeless aesthetic.’

Portable, Flexible and Versatile SLR

Portable, Flexible and Versatile SLR

If you seek these three qualities in an SLR, then Arti Patel has a solution for you. Her concept, All.Round SLR Camera works with a basic camera structure where photographs are captured using Universal Lens or Lens mount in front, and transferred through flexible circuits and wirings inside the mesh to an OLED screen at the back. The mesh gives you the advantage of 360-degree flexibility and helps capture pictures from any angle.

The Apollon is a clever camera design makes taking photos an entirely new experience! If your casual photographer friends have one too, you can link together wirelessly and capture the same photo from different perspectives. Better yet, their camera will automatically transfer the image to your device so you all have the same digitals. Pure GENIUS.

Simplifying Photography

Simplifying Photography

In this digital era and self-sufficient gadget loving folks, we rarely have to step into a photo studio just to print pictures. Photosensitive is a project that aims to simplify the self-help process where cameras need to hook-up with computers for the printing process. “The application becomes a dimension of the experience, from capturing to archiving and sharing images.”

Traditional Camera Shapes are Wrong

Traditional Camera Shapes are Wrong

Listen to designer Jean-michel Bonnemoy and he’ll have you believe traditional camera form factors were dictated by the need to hold a roll of film in the back. Now that we’re all digital, why are still maintaining that archaism? He maintains the new form factor should be a cylinder – ergonomically better for the hand. The D-CAN concept significantly reduces volume while still providing all the finite controls professional photographers are used to. Hit the jump for the “specs”.

Split Digital Delight

Split Digital Delight

eXcanvas is for those who like taking self portraits and have to depend upon strangers to do them the favor of taking pictures. The camera can be separated into a tripod and sub camera and features a timer function too. I love the sleek way you can strap the camera on your wrist and click pictures; very convenient!

Tripod Bike

Tripod Bike

Inspired by the camera tripod, the T-Bike provides a unique solution for custom fitting a bike to individual users. Three sliding mechanisms located on the front fork, center frame, and rear wheel bar can be adjusted and locked to the rider’s preference. As an added bonus (and a nod to its inspiration), the bike also features a camera mount located between the handle bars!

Love this simple camera called Slite, a device that allows you to slide out the screen and edit images on the go. The new-age cameras have all made us semi-pro at taking pictures. Heck, even the smartphones now allow you to tinker around with minimum tools to improve the pic. So the next logical step is a point and shoot with enhanced features and inbuilt advance tools for image editing. Way to go sammy!
