Taking a photograph using a digital camera is today still basically the same as using the analog counterpart. We are designing a digital camera that senses its context to explore new possibilities for digital photography. The sensor data produces real-time visual effects on the image displayed in the viewfinder and enables the user to take unique pictures, whose visual qualities reflect the context. Our first prototype is based on a digital camera mounted on a handheld computer. Our development process involves participatory design sessions with possible end users, including a panel of enthusiastic amateur photographers.
