What you see on these images are the DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 lenses. Actually these are not normal lenses! They have built-in sensor, Bionz processor, Wifi/NFC wireless connection and SD card slot. These lenses have no LCD screen and no usual camera controls. You will be able to control them through your smart phone or tablet (via WiFi or NFC). The lenses can be magnetically attached on your smartphone and it works on both,iOS and Android devices.
Sony’s upcoming lenses clip onto the front of iPhones and Androids and communicate via Wi-Fi. A companion app controls the add-on camera’s functions and saves the resulting photos onto an SD card. One of the cameras featured above is supposedly based on the RX100 which uses a large one-inch sensor, while the other has a 10x zoom and a 1/2.3-inch 18-megapixel sensor.
There’s no word on the price or a release dat. We will keep you updated. Stay tuned…
