Kevin Hoffman has designed the Nikon PowerZoom to help camera companies, Nikon specifically, maintain dominance in the photography scene. Now when it comes to professional photographs, nothing beats a real camera. That being said, more and more casual photographers are opting for smartphones over cameras. The Nikon PowerZoom is designed to target these photogs. The PowerZoom is essentially a giant lens attached to a display unit. Its display unit features an LED trackpad and fold-out screen.

The Nikon PowerZoom lets you seamlessly switch out your lenses and go from shooting in portrait to landscape with the flick (it's actually more of a slide) of a switch. The ergonomic design and ease of use should appeal to casual photographers, although the lens attachments would have to be priced right.
