More clear purported images of Sony Smart Shot lens leaks online, shows special mount to attach on select Xperia devices
Beside introducing Sony Xperia Z1 tomorrow at IFA, Sony is also going to announce the first interchangeable lens for Android and iOS devices, probably dubbed as Sony Smart Shot lens. Last week, we showed you some images of DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 lens-camera, and now a whole gallery of pictures are now available showing Sony's new lens-camera concept in pretty much every angle you could wish for.
The images also reveals that the lenses do not need to be attached to the smartphone to work, and can be used independently to take a self-portrait, as you can see in the images below. The images and videos will be stored on both, smartphone and lens memory. The user will be able to control zoom, exposure, white balance, and focus using the smartphone easily.
To remind you all, the Sony DSC-QX10 will be priced around $250, which matches the lens on the $400 Sony WX150 with an 18MP CMOS sensor and f/3.3-5.9 lens.
Whereas, the Sony DSC-QX100 will cost $450, which will basically turn your smartphone into the $750 Sony RX100MII point and shoot camera with a 20.2MP CMOS sensor, low-light friendly f/1.8 aperture and 3.6x optical zoom.
These lenses will come with optical steadyshot stabilisation and will be compatible with all Android and iOS devices via Playmemories APP (the new version will come out soon). We will bring more information on these lenses tomorrow, when they will be actually launched at IFA. Till then, stay tuned.
