Sony introduced “smart lenses” for smartphones
Rumors that it was hard to believe , were confirmed. Sony has introduced a series of autonomous lenses for smartphones. The so-called lens cameras equipped with “stuffing”, which can be found in traditional cameras Sony compact size – Lens with a variable focal length, image sensor chips processing, battery, stereo microphones and even their own memory card slots. Viewfinder – this is probably the only thing that is lacking new apparatus. Here, however, the aid comes a smartphone that takes over the function of an essential element of any camera. Connection and control is performed on the Smart Lens Technology Wi-Fi.
During today’s IFA show in Berlin, Sony introduced two models of Smart Lens. The first model – QX100 cost of about $ 499 will be available in late September. Judging by the “stuffing”, then we are deprived of LCD-compact camera RX100M2, which is in the collection costs $ 750. QX100 has the same 20-megapixel sensor is the size of 1 inch, optics Carl Zeiss, as well as the image processor BIONZ. You could even say that it RX100M2 for a smartphone.
For users on a budget Sony has developed a model QX10. This model will go on sale along with the older model, but at a lower price – $ 250 per copy. A younger model outperforms older optical zoom (from 3.6x to 10x), but inferior to the quality of the image (1/2 ,3-inch gauge) and less prestigious lenses Sony G. With regard to sensitivity, the QX10 receives the ISO 3200 limit, and the model QX100 – ISO 6400.
Both cameras support wireless NFC technology, and work with Sony PlayMemories. QX Smart Lenses compatible with mobile devices based on iOS and Android, take memory cards microSD and Memory Stick, and equipped with an optional attachment for the back cover smartphone. For those who are disposed to make serious pictures, the manufacturer has provided mounting on a tripod.
Despite the conventional plastic housing, QX Smart Lenses inspire confidence in terms of reliability and durability. Proper shutter release and zoom control allows the lens to function separately from the smartphone.
