This instant camera brings the convenience of the digital camera to the art of film photography


Moir 21 is an instant film camera concept designed to combine the quality of film photography with the convenience of digital cameras.

While today’s world is full of endless content and digital photography, we have lost touch with the art of analog photography. Most current feeds feature photos taken from smartphones and digital cameras, but you can still tell the difference between these and photos taken on camera roll.

There is a mystique to film photography, but for modern purposes we are leaning towards digital media. By blending the two, design team Sarwan Bhinder and Vishnu R conceptualized Moir 21, an instant camera that takes the best of both worlds to meet the beauty of film cameras with the convenience of digital photography.

Moir 21 takes its name from the French word memory, which loosely translates to the concept of record keeping. By preserving the integrity of a film camera and solving the limitations imposed by today’s digital cameras, Moir 21 allows for multiple prints of hand-selected photographs. Many photographers who enjoy shooting on film appreciate the stand for its unique shots.

In order to keep this spirit alive, Sarwan and Vishnu designed Moir 21 to automatically erase a photograph just minutes after it was taken. Additionally, the design team equipped Moir 21 with a minimal control panel so that modern users can stay close to the clean display of most digital cameras.

The actual photograph will not be erased, but the photographer will only be able to see it again after it has been printed. Using the electronic viewfinder (EVF), photographers can change their camera settings to produce different photographs, similar to a film camera.

Speaking of this, the designers suggest, “The controls are smooth and seamless to give a smoother and faster experience when shooting and printing.”
