RED One Off Leica Redesigned
А: In line with the apparent design dialect (cleaning things up), given there is no functional separation between the top and the display, we eliminate the "false" frame line.The "honest" line at the bottom of the display stays, as functionally the bottom appears to be removable. Б: The flat area to the left of the display appears to be solely a printing surface for the labels. It kicks the design off its balance, making the camera look heavy on the left. An ugly compromise on what is suposed to be a product of few compromises, certainly from the design perspective. В: ...Which brings us to the question: Do we even need those buttons labeled? We photogs know our cameras and can operate them by touch without looking. None of these buttons` functions are destructive on first press (even delete would presumably ask for a confirmation), and press-and-hold can easily be made to display the legend / labels lined up with these buttons on the rear monitor.
This photo is marked as: Safe.
