A modern DSLR is used for photography, along with video and film production. Designer Dustin Brown has produced his own DSLR idea to encourage change in a product category that is notoriously resistant to change. He believes exposure is a cube, not a triangle. He states that we should be able to navigate and fly within the exposure cube with one control, picking settings continuously and organically. He suggests a trackball that allows us to navigate aperture and shutter speed, surrounded by a jog dial that moves exposure in ISO.
He also believes we should make use of our smartphones and use it as the camera screen and remove the on-body screen of cameras to reduce size and power requirements. This minimalist suggestion will allow DSLRs to become a lot lighter and portable. It’s unknown if camera makers will undergo these huge changes, but it would definitely be a game changer if the major players released a Dustin Brown-suggested camera.
