Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-QX100 and DSC-QX10 “Lens-Style” Cameras
Following a video preview comes a closer look at Sony’s Cyber-Shot DSC-QX100 and DSC-QX10 “lens-style” cameras. Designed for mobile photography, the two lenses utilize Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile application for iOS and Android – thus connecting wirelessly to your smartphone and converting its screen into a realtime viewfinder with the ability to release the shutter, start and stop movie recordings, and adjust prototypical photographic settings. Compact and ultra-portable, the DSC-QX100 boasts a 1.0″ 20.2 MP Exmor RCMOS sensor – the same as that of the Cyber-Shot RX100 II camera – with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens, 3.6x optical zoom, and a BIONZ image processor. Its 4-ounce counterpart, the DSC-QX10, features a 18.2 effective megapixel Exmor RCMOS sensor with a 10x optical zoom Sony G Lens. Both are set to be available later this month for $500 USD and $250 USD, respectively.
