The thinking about possible instruments for the future ELTs has just started and the current phase allows to pursue non-traditional solutions. Following the guidelines of the Science Case for an ELT1,2 our team searched for possible intersections with innovative technologies we currently deal with in our research. We found that Volume Phase Holographic Gratings and advanced dichroics could be suited to design a non-traditional narrow band imager. We propose in this paper a comparative analysis of a VPHG based and a dichroic based configurations for the imager.
