Sony QX100
Sony has announced two new lens style cameras, the QX10 and QX100. 

These cameras are designed to fit onto your smartphone and turn it into a specialist camera. They link with your phone via Wi-Fi, turning it into the screen for your camera. They enable you to shoot great photography using your smartphone. 

It’s a dream come true for anyone who loves their smartphone, but wants the photo quality that only a dedicated camera can deliver. And whilst they look like lenses, the DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 are complete cameras in their own right.

The DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 attach easily with the supplied smartphone attachment that fits several popular smartphone models (width 54-75mm/max. thickness 13mm). 

The Cyber-shot DSC-QX10 partners an 18.2 effective megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor with a high-quality Sony G Lens and boasts a powerful 10x optical zoom range.
The Cyber-shot DSC-QX100 features a large 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS sensor with 20.2 effective megapixels. You’ll really see the difference with sumptuous, ultra-low noise images – even indoors or at dusk when many cameras and camera phones struggle.

It’s simple to frame shots and change camera settings like aperture control and exposure compensation and photo/video record mode on your smartphone’s big touchscreen. There is far more creative control than you can ever get with your phone’s regular camera, enabling the user to capture beautifully background defocused shots.

The new Cyber-shot DSC-QX100 and DSC-QX10 from Sony are available to pre-order from the Sony website now. They’re on general sale in UK from the end of September 2013. the QX100 will cost £399, and the QX10 £179.
