This Apple Quicktake digital camera concept by Joseph Dumary has lots of innovative features including voice control, which would enable you to snap a photograph just by saying “Cheese!” The extra-wide HD touchscreen can be swiveled 360° to take a self-portrait and the lens can rotate for improved focus.

The Quicktake is an easy-to-use camera designed using with glass and recycled alumium, with a graphic interface (GUI) that looks like an iPad. The voice control feature lets you take a picture, adjust the settings and select options just by talking to it, and the microphone can also record HD sound while eliminating unwanted background noise.

It claims to be the first camera in the world with a lens that can rotate a few millimeters to the right or left for better focus in manual or auto modes with Eyefocus+ technology. The Quicktake also boasts a light sensor that can adjust the screen brightness automatically and the ability to zoom using your fingers on the screen like with a smartphone.
