Smartphone Camera Twist

July 10, 2013

I do lots of self photography using my smart phone. And the bad thing is I cannot see how is the camera capturing photo. And if I use front camera it does not give good quality picture. Many people use to take pictures in front of mirror in their bathrooms. Why smartphones have front and back camera?

I came up with this simple solution, there should be only one camera that can be rotated to front and back position. This will help self photographers to see their picture while they are capturing. And good quality camera will be used both for video calls and capturing video/photos.

Here are the following drawings of the proposed designs:


Camera on the side corner rotatable.


Camera in the middle


Camera in the middle inside the frame.

Camera can be rotated automatically by selecting front/back camera option on phone screen. One camera will save space inside the phone, reduce some weight and high quality camera will be available both front and back side of phone.
