This project started out as wanting to make a camera with the round display and 5D joystick. As I was working on this, I realized I wanted a camera module 3 instead of 2 eg. 12 MP vs. 8 MP. I also didn't want to make a body and have to discard/do it again... so this modular design which was a coincidence (wanted 2 different colors eg. black between orange) happened.

I'm already psyched with how bright the LCD is... and I also tried the touch one that is ESP and that is pretty amazing... I was briefly tempted to work on a watch but I don't wear watches.

At this point I've already started printing and it's not a hard project... but yeah I gotta write the software too I'm thinking round bubble menu design.

Making a video too as I build this. Anyway I have two more days off so I'll get something done.
