Sony has announced two new camera dongle thingies for connection to smartphones.
The QX-30 and, more interestingly, the QX1.
The QX1 is more interesting in that it's an APS-C sensor, but instead of a bulit in lens like the other QX models, it has a lens mount for accepting interchangeable lenses! Sony E-mount of course.
Of course what this means is that your smart phone can now be a more compact mirrorless type camera.
Speed(of image capture) isn't a problem either @ 10fps.
I've always been curious about these QX devices, after I updated my old Samsung Galaxy phone to a Sony Z1 a while back.
I'm just not a big fan of built in lenses, even in compact cameras.
Anyhow, I just thought the idea of it sounded a bit less bland than such a device would otherwise sound.
Now all Sony need to make is a set of glasses, much like Google Glasses, that also connect to such a device, and the 'camera' wouldn't be required at all.
