Nikon’s latest patent: a rotating mount

Nikon filed a patent application in Japan for a rotating mount that will allow for a quick and easy switch between portrait and landscape mode. The camera body will basically rotate around the lens at 90°. It is not clear from the patent drawings above, but in order for this to work, the sensor must rotate with lens instead of the camera body, right? Not a bad idea!
