This study explores the human and technical limitations of looking with optics-based camera systems. It proposes a model for design that expands technical sight toward harmony with our human notion. This study is guided by the phenomenological experience of being expressed primarily by Heidegger as well as neuro-physiological research on the mind and body relationship by Ramachandran and Nicolelis. It examines the technical developments that seek to alter or enhance our ways of looking with optics-based cameras, specifically how cameras might be set to look, how they behave in looking and how they translate that look into an image on display. It includes key examples of modern image device capabilities, makes suggestions about how the framework of this study can be applied in specific cases and predicts the state of image devices in the future.
