Technology has shown what impressive things it can do in the sphere of photography, but for those interested in less automation, the Take Frame Camera has something to offer. The unconventional picture-snapping gadget is made up of two interlocking pieces that separate to help you delineate the scene before you.
The pair of L-shaped halves have been designed to resemble the cropping cross-hairs that are applied to a printed photo before it's been cut. Their forms suggest the upper left and bottom right corners of an image and allow you the freedom to decide where each of them would lie. Eunae Ko's invention of the Take Frame Camera is a technological step back from intelligent zoom and focus functions on contemporary point-and-shoots digital cameras but the intuitive, tactile and playful device has a great deal of user merit.
