Excellent design idea: DSLR with slanted back

Digital SLR cameras for advanced users cling to the traditional design of pro cameras. But now designers are taking liberties with that staid tradition, and they've made it easier to use, angling the bottom away from the user's face. That'll keep those greasy nose smudges off the viewscreen. Nice.

Designer Abel Verdezoto I. is picking on Sony's Alpha DSLR in this example, but it could just have easily been one from Canon, Nikon, Olympus or any other manufacturer.

There's no reason why a digital SLR camera has to look like its film-based ancestors. Come on, camera designers, let's see what you've got. We've seen so few interesting designs for cameras and camcorders, you'd think there was some kind of barrier keeping you from innovating.
