Sony’s ‘lens camera’ that turns any smartphone into a point-and-shoot spotted in the wild
According to Sony Alpha Rumors we have received high resolution photo leaks of Sony’s new wireless “lens camera” series. The lens cameras are essentially a lens, a sensor, and all of the accessories needed to take a photo in a single package, such as an SD card slot and a processor. You will have to attach this camera lens to a Smartphone, and it will connect wirelessly to allow the phone’s display to work as a viewfinder.
The rumor-mill further goes on to report that the cameras will come in a variety, like the one pictured at the top of this article will feature a 10x zoom f/3.3-5.9 G lens with a 1/2.3 inch 18-megapixel CMOS sensor. Expect performance on that to be similar to Samsung’s original Galaxy Camera. The high-end accessory will feature a 1-inch 20.2-megapixel Exmor R sensor and an f/1.8 Carl Zeiss lens.
