Sony boldly goes where no one has been crazy enough to go before.
Sony’s QX Smart Lens attaches an entire camera to your smartphone.
It operates like a camera inside the lens, not only placing the sensor within the lens casing, but allowing you to mount it to a smartphone – yes, a smartphone – and work it as you would a point and shoot. You can still use, edit, and share the images as you would normally.
The QX series comes in two models. A beefier QX100, which will retail for $499 and boasts 20-megapixels, a 1-inch sensor, Carl Zeiss optics, ISO 6400 limit, and BIONZ image processing. The lower priced QX10 $250 will zoom to 10x, but replaces features with a smaller 1/2.3-inch sensor and Sony G Lens. Wi-Fi and NFC tech will transfer images from the camera lens directly to your smartphone via a Sony app.
