Build Your Own Super-Camera

December 22, 2008

Digital cameras and video cameras quickly become obsolete, but a new modular camera system will let photographers upgrade just about any part of their cameras rather than buying new ones. Aimed at professional photographers and filmmakers, the system uses interchangeable sensors, displays, hard drives, and other components that can be assembled in a variety of configurations. The complete cameras can produce both super-high-resolution still images and movies of a quality high enough for major studios.
