Sonys Cutting-Edge Lens Now Used on a Phone

When SonyAlphaRumours.com first put up images of the DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 lens, it was ridiculed. But it did not take long for the rumour to gain momentum and turn into a probability.

The two lenses meant to be magnetically attached to your smartphone or tablet features a built-in sensor, a Bionz processor, a Wifi/NFC wireless connection and an SD card slot. However, since they do not possess any camera controls, they will have to be managed using WiFi on the smartphone or tablet device.

Of the two lenses, the DSC-QX 10 will have a 1-inch 20.2MP sensor, similar to the one found in the RX100 Mark II.

The DCS-QX100 will feature an 18MP sensor. Both cameras are supposed to have Android and iOS support. This means that your smartphone will turn into a compact camera, with the phone’s screen behaving as a giant LCD screen.

However, more details regarding the lenses are yet to surface.
