Who needs a camera?
If you’re looking to snap and share some photos, all you’ll need is your smartphone and the Sony Smart Shot.
Rumor has it that Smart Shot is the name being given to Sony’s attachable smartphone lens cameras, the DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100. This release will come alongside the debut of Sony’s flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z1.
Similarly unconfirmed reports have the DSC-QX100 using the same sensor as used in the RX100 Mark II. The DSC-QX10 lens will include a larger 10x zoom and a 1/2.3-inch 18-megapixel CMOS sensor.
Compatible with Android and iOS devices, the Smart Shot comes complete with lens stabilization and full HD-video capability. To top it off, you can use the lens even if it’s not attached to your smartphone. Attached or otherwise, photos taken are saved to the lens and phone. Then, using editing and social apps, you’re able to make changes and share your photo instantly, over Wi-Fi.
