Future Nikon DSLRs Might Respond to Photographers’ Emotions

You might soon be able to control Nikon DSLRs using only your emotions. A patent published recently shows that the company is looking into building biological detectors into its cameras, allowing the camera to automatically change settings and trigger the shutter based on things like heart rate and blood pressure. For example, at a sporting event, the sensors could be used to trigger the shutter when something significant happens and the photographer’s reflexes are too slow. The camera could also choose a faster shutter speed to reduce blurring if the user is nervous.

    Well, if your reflexes are too slow to catch a good photo, perhaps you should not be a photographer.

    Would it also automatically put an ad on eBay to sell it when I get upset about it?

    That or in a sort of pinkish color. Due to those built in rosetinted filters.

    ok, the technology is somehow cool. but.. where’s the fun of taking photographs? why not a much better sensor with noise free, higher dinamic range (12 stops), also make it 16 bit. and of course, lower price. that would be magnificent!
