Sony Cyber-shot lenses are world's first interchangeable lenses for Android and iOS smartphones.
These lens cameras are basically lenses with select camera features, which work with Android and iOS smartphones to provide high-end compact camera quality images without the need to carry the full camera.
According to the leaked press release, these cameras can be easily connected using WiFi to smartphones, converting the phone's screen into a real-time viewfinder. Using Sony's Play Memories Mobile app, users can release the shutter, start/stop movie recordings, and adjust common photographic settings like Zoom, Auto Focus shooting mode, and more on these lens cameras.
These lens cameras also support NFC connectivity for easy access. The DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 lens cameras can be easily handled anywhere, and can also be attached to smartphones using mechanically adjustable adapter or even mounted to a tripod.
The release also revealed the pricing of the Cyber-shot QX10 and QX100 lens-style cameras. According to the release, the DSC-QX10 will cost $250, whereas DSC-QX100 will cost $500 only.
