Nikon D5R Digital SLR Camera Concept | By Ned Mulka

By - May 5th, 2011

Practitioners of professional photography know they are slaves to their bulky digital SLR camera. To capture the right shot at key moments, some would even don on a second camera. But all will be distant memories if camera makers take up industrial design student Ned Mulka‘s concept, the Nikon D5R Digital SLR Camera. Assuming the “R” as in “Rotation”, the mirror and image sensor are encased in a rotational housing. Thus, the Nikon D5R Concept assumes a lower profile. Minus the vertical grip and additional controls, it will be lighter too. Because of its smaller profile, photographers no longer have to contest one another for the best position.
