had a lot to show for itself at its annual expo today, from the EOS 60D
to the (working!) Multipurpose 4K concept
, but the best goodies are of course the ones just a few steps outside of today's technological limits. One display in particular that caught our eye was the 2010 Image Creation set, featuring the bold Wonder Camera Concept
from July. Nothing functional here, not even in sleight-of-hand video render form, but the models are quite the lookers. Joining the "SLR Style Concept" (as it was being called here, according to the accompanying placard) were the 3D Cam, Image Palette (display), Image Navi Cam (point and shoot), and MR HMD (helmet) -- all aesthetically Kubrick in nature. Not that we mind, of course; we find it best to go ahead and accept our future for the glossy white design motif that it'll assuredly become. Elsewhere, we happened upon the purported "world's largest CMOS sensor
" -- not that we'd argue with what we saw -- and the more compact 120 megapixel CMOS
, along with (separately) its panoramic camera prototype body. You can live vicariously through us in the photos below.
