What you see here are the two Sony DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 lenses. But these lenses are unique. They have a built-in sensor (just like the Ricoh GR modules) and stream wirelessly the images on your mobile device. You can use them separately or attached on your smartphone.
Sony will soon launch two “lens-cameras”:
1) One is the “Lens-camera” with RX100MII sensor and Zeiss lens ($600 here on Amazon). On the pictures it is the bigger lens. As you know the RX100 is the most praised high end compact camera and features a large 1 inch sensor which is the same used by the Nikon 1 system. Now you can have that kind of Image Quality on your iPhone or Android Smartphone!
2) The second model will feature a 10xzoom lens with 1/2,3 inch 18 megapixel CMOS sensor (the image with the f/3,3-5.9 lens). It’s basically the same sensor and lens of the Sony WX150 ($400 on Amazon).
Price is yet not known but the devices should be announced on September 4! Is this the real Mirrorless future? One device to rule them (cameras and smartphone) all?
