Recently we heard that Sony is developing detachable camera lens accessories for smartphones. These lenses are dubbed the Sony DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100, and could be attached to existing devices, using Wi-Fi to connect. Now we get a look at what these accessories could look like as a Sony Xperia phone with detachable lens has been depicted.
We should point out that this is a concept design, but nevertheless it’s interesting to see the possibilities of these Sony lens accessories. The lenses are intended to provide almost DSLR capabilities to camera smartphones and they could be attached magnetically to Android or iOS smartphones or tablet devices.
They are also planned to feature a built-in sensor, processor, and SD card port as well as NFC and Wi-Fi. The premium version is said to use the RX100MKII sensor and have a Carl Zeiss lens. The lesser version will have an f/3.3-5.9 Sony G lens with 10X optical zoom and 1/2.3-inch 18-megapixel sensor.
