We recently learned that Steve Jobs was very interested in trying to revolutionize the consumer electronics market in three key areas: TV, Education (through the iPad and applications like iBooks and Newsstand) and lastly the photographic industry.
In a way Apple has capitalized on the success of the iPhone, and they have made it a true choice for amateur and professional photographers.
And now, ADR Studios, a design and communication company, has launched a concept based on the supposed technical specifications of the iPhone 5, of how Cupertino could fully enter the last of Steve Jobs’ three wishes.
Baptized as the iCam, this concept takes into consideration some features of the iPhone 5 that we think (and still hope) will finally materialize next year, and plays with the idea that Apple will launch a separate peripheral that will put the new smartphone on par with Nikon devices and Canyon.
Here are some samples and technical specifications of the iCam:
- Unibody aluminum body
- Interchangeable Apple lenses, with iMount mounting system.
- Front touchscreen for self-portraits and dmicro-app
- LED flash
- Front peak-projector.
- SD UHS-i slot
- Siri compatible;
- Motion sensor;
- ISO range 100 to 3200 (extendable to 6400 equivalent)
- Full HD at 60 fps
- 10.1 megapixel sensor
The images are surprising, although I do not know if Apple would Apple dare to enter such an adventure in order to monopolize another market. Although, if we take into account that we are talking about Apple, then nothing seems impossible.
If Apple did design a peripheral like the one above to be used as a professional camera, would you buy it?
