Camera Redesign (Daniel)

We're looking for a student to redesign the menu system of a current model digital camera using conceptual design principles to make it easier to use, as a case study of the approach. Cameras are increasingly software dominated, but the user interfaces and underlying concepts are often imperfect. Reviewers are more frequently judging cameras by their software, so there's growing interest in the interaction design of cameras, and a great opportunity to figure out how to improve camera design in general.
