Whether you're a professional or an amateur photographer, sooner or later you're going to have to hold the camera in an awkward position to capture a vertical picture. The Nikon D5R Digital SLR Camera Concept does away with this problem by allowing users to rotate the mirror, prism and sensor of the camera so that photographers can hold the camera ergonomically while snapping some awesome shots.

A rotatable mirror, prism and sensor is not the only innovation that Ned Mulka, the industrial design student who concocted this concept, put onto the camera. With the removal of vertical grips underneath the camera, the Nikon D5R Digital SLR Camera Concept reduces the bulk and weight of other professional-grade cameras while maintaining the same picture quality.

If Nikon ever puts this camera into production, both professionals and lazy photographers are sure to be overjoyed.
