Sony introduces 'state-of-the-art' smartphone compatible lens-shaped digital cameras

Washington, Sept. 14 : Sony has reportedly introduced two new series of digital cameras, which look like small SLR lenses but can also be clipped as well as wirelessly connected to a smartphone.


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC QX-10 is an 18-megapixel camera and the DSC QX100 20-megapixel with a 3.6 x zoom lens feature, are cylindrically shaped point-and-shoot cameras and also have the ability to store photos and video on memory cards.

According to Fox News, these digital cameras can also allow the user to wirelessly pair to Android or iOS smart phones and through that, the user can compose the photos as the cameras lack LCDs or viewfinders.

The new digital cameras can also be clipped onto the bottom and top edges of a smartphone and a user can separate each camera from the smartphone or tablet and control it remotely through the mobile device.

The report said that the highlight of these cameras is their better still picture and video quality as compared to the mobile device cameras.

A user would require downloading the Sony's PlayMemories Mobile app onto the mobile device to use the camera function.

The cameras' memory card can also copy photos and videos to the smartphone via Wi-Fi, but do not include an on-board or pop-up flash feature

The report added that the Cyber-shot QX10 priced at 250 dollars and the Cyber-shot QX100 at 500 dollars, will be available in late September.
