Today’s my birthday, so what am I doing blogging instead of partying? I should really just be counting Gourmet Gift Baskets. Lol. But no gave me any gift basket so I’m blogging instead. But really, I just need to blog about this cool camera concept by Damien Arlettaz which also happens to be a 2011 Red Dot Design Concept winner.
I’m loving this concept because with all things digital now, photos taken rarely get printed and appreciated. It usually just stays in a digital file and left to gather ‘digital dust’. Lol. That’s quite sad because for me photographs are meant for reminiscing, to keep happy times alive. I guess the creator of this design concept have this in mind.
Photosensitive is a project that aims to simplify the self-help process where cameras need to hook-up with computers for the printing process. “The application becomes a dimension of the experience, from capturing to archiving and sharing images.”
Photosensitive comprises of the following modules: Stenope, Viewer, Contact Sheet, and Memory.
Touchscreen digital camera that uses standard photograph format (4 x 6 inches).
The user shoots the picture at a print-ready size.
The interface provides straightforward explanations about light, motion, and depth, allowing the user to quickly grasp the different parameters.
Stenope then disappears, serving as a control screen for all the other modules.
Viewer, Contact Sheet, and Memory
Viewer allows users to create and present slideshows.
Contact Sheet works like a stamp and allows printing on any even surface.
The loading base for the paper is also in a 4 x 6 inch format.
Memory can store up to 10,000 pictures.
Images are automatically downloaded through Wi-Fi and classified.
