CROP / digital camera


We use camera to remember moments, people and scenes. However, we started seeing the pictures from an LCD display instead of seeing real objects.
When we try to frame a picture before actually taking it, we frame our view with two thumbs and index fingers. CROP is a camera that takes a picture as it is framed. It zooms in when the camera gets distanced from the receiver within your ear, which is very similar to what you do to make your finger-frame smaller by stretching out your arms forward. You do not have to give up seeing the actual scene to take pictures of your child smile or beautiful fireworks.
