Most high-end digital cameras are inherently difficult to upgrade and tweak. But this modular concept, by Korean designers Dae-jin Ahn and Chun-hyun Park, suggests a different future for photography, where components can be swapped with ease.

Called Equinox, this camera system is based on a small square core, which contains a specific sensor and mount pairing. What you choose to do with that core would be up to you: a small, barebones grip if you only need the essentials, say, or a bigger grip that offers more controls if you know things will get serious.

Or maybe you’re using it in a studio and don’t need anybody, so you can link the sensor to a computer and use software to take on the work (see below). Its versatility is what makes this concept so neat — and we think it would be amazing if it was actually real.
