Glam Cam For Extreme Conditions

My camera and I are inseparable during vacation trips. It’s a shame that weather often dictates how and where I use it tho. Like I would love to capture the sudden showers of London in the middle Hyde Park and not from under some shelter. Dubai’s desert safari is awesome, but the sand grains really ruin your cam. Down Under snorkeling in the Great Barrier is spectacular; then again you either opt for an underwater cam or simply take pics from the deck. Will someone make a camera like the eXtreme Compact Digicam, puhleezz?

This one’s an all-weather, all-terrain coolpix device that looks sleek and really knows how to rough it out!

    Looks really awesome, The shape´s really cool. Like it alot! Its always difficult to design something like a digi-cam, but this is kind of new, but its clear enuff to see what it is.

    BUT Doesn´t this already excist? Canon have created a new product and olympus have this concept in for production about 5 years!!

    Just curious…

    i cant imagine anyone holding that form when it get wet or even moist. and then gloves on top of it. looks nice but be worse than trying to pick up a wet bar of soap

      There’s always surf wax. It would be kinda weird to wax a camera, but it could certainly be a option if you’re planning on rough activity in wet conditions.

    I don’t think Camillo is claiming the idea. Keep the comments constructive, instead of picking up on every little thing that gets posted on this site (haaaduuuurrrrrrrrrrrr).

    The design is impressive, the lens is really celebrated on the front face, and lets be honest the lense is the coolest part of a camera.
    I really dig the water splash render, nice work! I was hoping the youtube video was going to have it animated 🙁

  • TheCrudMan says:

    Very sexy but it looks a little bit too design and a little bit not enough industrial…too much form over function.

  • Mert Can says:

    Nice rendered form, seems like quite “flawless” due to reflections – with/without HDRI in an real envoriment it may look better or worse;
    in some conditions (in sea? ice-rain combo? a sweet moment at the shower while covered with soap etc…) it’d be hard to handle this, its hard to handle a wet soap.

    Still Olympus nano Tough series uses different design approaches, or you can look at a Panasonic Toughbook for “condition X design”: these are the first industrial designs that came into my mind, you can find many ideas for this cam.

    first of all, some people may like the rugged look, but I think this think totally pwns the olympus line in terms of aesthetics. It looks like it fits more at home with the “active but fashionable” lifestyle than something with a machined look to it. It looks larger than life, it’s in your face, its very iconic. And the huge NIKON emblazoned on the front? awesome. Reminds me a lot of RKS’s “mimique” android phone, and the macbook air: thick where it needs to be, tapers to nothing on the edges. And correct me if i’m wrong, but wouldn’t this shape allow a much higher optical zoom that it’s pancake-flat counterparts? way to not make a camera that looks like every other camera. Gnar.

    This post is very nice……….

  • GL says:

    Looks like a nightmare to grip, really. Fresh to the eye though.

  • Doug says:

    This is incredible! Nikon should definitely put this into production.

  • TonTon says:

    Looks fantastic! But, (there´s always a but), where´s the grip?

  • photography freak says:

    i am begging you…..please oh please make this camera a reality i really want it and christmas is on its way, please make it real!!!!

  • What i do not understood is in fact how you are not really a lot more well-liked than you might be now. You’re so intelligent. You know thus considerably in terms of this topic, made me for my part consider it from so many various angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be interested except it’s something to do with Woman gaga! Your individual stuffs nice. At all times handle it up!
