Concept showing a modular Full Frame E-mount camera. You can swap the sensor, use it on different cameras and upgrade the sensor instead of buying a whole new body.

By chance I stumbled on this 2013 old rendering of a modular Sony E-mount cameras made by the Designers Dae jin Ahn & Chun hyun Park (Yankodesign). I know there is near zero chance Sony will ever do a modular camera.
Still, maybe it’s time for the engineers to think out of the box to challenge the future Canon and Nikon FF mirrorless?
A modular design is complicated and has many downsides. On the other side big companies like RED had a huge success with their modular cameras. So maybe it’s worth a try…what do you think?
