This may be something designer Ned Mulka whipped up in Illustrator, but I think he’s onto the right path with his thinking that the DSLR needs to be redesigned and rebalanced. Sure, we’ve seen a more modern, streamlined approach with the micro four thirds cameras, but this concept, that shows the mirror, prism and sensor included in a rotating lens, is as fresh as they get.
Mulka’s concept also lets the victim – sorry, the subject – see more of the photographer’s face when being shot, as the body is smaller and the lens located on the side of the camera body. It wouldn’t suit everyone, but the idea of rotating the lens instead of the camera body when going from landscape to portrait really appeals to me. [Coroflot via Nikon Rumors]
