D-CAN: A futuristic cylindrical camera
October 10, 2013 /Photography News/ Why do our cameras all resemble a box with a lens on the front? The answer is film.
Due to digital technology, photo-taking and video-recording practices have been revolutionized, however there are no significant changes in digital camera body design. And that’s where the D-CAN comes in, with its telescope-shaped body.
Featuring a cylinder form factor, the D-CAN is said to be ergonomically better for the hand, and significantly reduces volume will still providing all the finite controls professional photographers are used to.
Whether it is the right shape or not, we’ll probably need to try one out before we can come to a conclusion though it’s definitely something to think about.
