Camera Project – EASE Digilux 5

For the final ID2 project, we had to design a DSLR camera. I chose to do a fun and easy to use camera for senior citizens. With a growing number of retirees, I am sure they will want to capture their memories and take up a new hobby. The design took into account the fun aspect of the product, ease of use and unique user needs. The screen is extra large for easy viewing, the interface is highly simplified, all controls are done with the thumbs (better for those with arthritis), and the grips are soft and slip proof. Hypothetically, the camera would be a Oxo and Leica collaboration called ‘EASE Digilux 5’.

The final model was carved out of foam, resined, painted, and fitted with screens/lens/buttons/grips.
