Merging the creative power of a premium compact camera with the convenience and connectivity of today’s smartphones, Sony gives you a new way to transform your smartphone into a full functioning high quality camera for $250-$500.
The innovative Cyber-shot QX100 and DSC-QX10 models utilize Wi-Fi connectivity to instantly transform a connected smartphone into a versatile, powerful photographic tool, allowing it to shoot high-quality images and HD videos to rival a premium compact camera. It’s an entirely new and different way for consumers to capture and share memories with friends and family.
To add extra value to these lenses they can also function as stand-alone cameras, with a slot for a memory card and a shutter button. They currently offer two models, one with a large 20 megapixel sensor and 3.6x zoom, and another with an 18 megapixel sensor and 10x zoom.
The new compact, ultra-portable cameras can be attached to a connected phone with a supplied mechanically adjustable adapter, or can be held separately in hand or even mounted to a tripod while still maintaining all functionality and connectivity with the smartphone. They can also be operated as completely independent cameras if desired, as both the DSC-QX100 and DSC-QX10 cameras have a shutter release, memory card slot and come with a rechargeable battery.
