The Artefact Group asks: what's next for camera design? They answer this question with the Wireless Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens, a concept camera that takes the connectivity and application platform capabilities of today's smart phones and wirelessly connects them with interchangeable full SLR-quality optics.
No longer be resigned to the phantom "man behind the lens." The WVIL system lets you separate the point of view from the point of control. This lets you capture yourself in the experience, as well as capture your experiences from new angles and multiple perspectives -- all while keeping full control of how the moment is captured.
When attached, focus and zoom are driven directly by the lens rings -- with direct visual feedback -- letting you keep your eye on the subject. These same indicators come to life and let you take control of the lens remotely by touch.
