Nova DSLR looks a bit like a boomerang or a pair of garden shears. Instead of a traditional grip, the camera was equipped with two arms and a lens between.
All the buttons and switches are located on the arms, just at your own fingertips. The innovative idea and the design belong to Erin Fong and it shows the new trend on the photo market. Now the cameras are being designed as small and lightweight devices (pocket size), they are supposed to be very simple and intuitive in handling and the pictures are to be the best quality as possible. This concept has led to creation of the Micro Four Third standard compact cameras with interchangeable lenses and digital SLR sensors. The idea is being developed by Panasonic and Olympus, similar concepts are also being implemented by Samsung.
