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.

As Arti explains, “The meshed body is expandable and collapsible and is controlled by body holders making this SLR a lightweight & portable camera to carry around for daily use. OLED screen at the back lets the users do unlimited framing, as it stretches out in multiple directions (i.e. for landscape pictures, it becomes wider while taking pictures helping photographers to shot in scenes) This SLR Camera solves the current gap in Camera design, and fulfills the very basic needs and answers to daily frustrations of photographers.”

    Try reducing the object’s symmetry. The user doesn’t immediately know which end to look through.

    Also, an SLR camera is chosen for its functionality (numerous buttons) and sometimes as an instant status symbol (traditional shape). Excitement in product form is used as a marketing tool for low cost point-and-shoot cameras to make them stand out from the horde of comparable products.
    I like the initial idea, but it’s not good design practice to stretch the idea and claim that the design solves problems that are made up.

    Hmm… I’d be a bit worried about dropping it and messing up something internal. But I like it. It’s a bit more creative than what I normally see in designs like this.

    it’s a fun novelty camera for the true hipster, but as a dslr it would never work for the professional or the enthusiast.
