Nikon patent hints at camera with interchangeable sensors

Nikon logoMegapixels are one of the things that camera manufacturers love to tout and use as a tool to market their products, although many photographers will tell you that the megapixels don’t really matter that much unless you’re planning to print huge photos, and while it does help to a certain degree, having more megapixels does not necessarily mean it is a better camera. To that extent wouldn’t it be a great idea if cameras could come with interchangeable sensors? Imagine if you could buy a camera body but be able to swap out sensors depending on your needs, or if you needed to clean it or gain access to it, wouldn’t that be convenient?

Nikon patent hints at camera with interchangeable sensors

Well a Nikon patent has revealed that the Japanese camera company has toyed around with the idea, and the patent describes the idea of a camera with an interchangeable sensor and how to go about achieving a more accurate way of mounting it within the device. Sensors are usually a fixture of a camera and are typically non-removable, at least not by the average photographer, as compared to lenses, which is why they are used as a marketing tool, i.e. a 20MP camera versus a 32MP camera, and so forth. However given that this is a patent, there’s no telling if Nikon will actually go ahead and make it a reality, but what do you guys think? Would you like a camera with interchangeable lenses?
