Camera Futura: concept camera for Wireless Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens

"As you've most likely figured out, the WVIL camera is not a real product, but a Concept Camera envisioned by Artefact's award–winning design team. It answers the question: 'what's next for camera design?'

The patent–pending WVIL system takes the connectivity and application platform capabilities of today's smart phones and wirelessly connects them with interchangeable full SLR–quality optics. It is the inevitable solution for photographers who expect the power of modern mobile devices but who also demand uncompromised quality."

(Artefact Group, 2010)

Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera Alpha 1: analogue instant photography

"In 1972, another revolution in instant photography was launched when Land introduced his instant 'pocket' SLR called the SX–70. This collapsible camera would indeed fit into a jacket pocket when folded, and when unfolded offered SLR viewing and focusing. The new integral–pack instant prints developed in just a few minutes and didn't require peeling."

(Chris Foresman, 21 February 2008, Ars Technica)
