Back-To-Back Camera

If you think one point-and-shoot is a shutterbug enough, imagine handling two of them at the same time! This is not the first time I am seeing designers dabble with the thought of having two cameras married into one, so that the user can capture two different views at one go. I guess this takes panorama pictures a step ahead. Maybe marry it with some 3-D augmentation and we have a deal! Canon, are you listening?

Black & White Camera is a 2012 iF Design Talents entry.

Designer: Choi Giuk

    Hmmm – I can’t see other people’s comments. So at the risk of repeating them:

    There are 2 reasons for linking cameras: producing stereo and panoramic images. For both the cameras must be synced so that they are both focusing on the same image, and have the same exposure. So having a hardware link makes this easier.

    For stereo images separate images could be created for “viewer” type pairs of images, or apply pairs of red & green filters to produce a single over-lapped image for stereo viewing with 3-d glasses. (I always wanted to do this.)

    For panoramics, the camera has to tell the user if there is enough overlap for stitching the images together (which could be done in real-time), as the angle must be changed according to the amount of zoom.

    I like this idea – lots of possibilities.

    Why use 2 of everything? The panorama would be stitched digitally which can be done with one sensor. Honestly it doubles all the most expensive parts of a camera.

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it
    much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
    Excellent work!
