ILCEQX1_wXperiaZ2_1-1200

People have been questioning the wisdom of the Sony QX so-called ‘lens cameras’ since before they even arrived. CNET mocked the news when it was still a rumor, saying it made no sense for Sony to release a camera accessory that made your phone just as bulky as a real camera… why would people buy that and not a real camera?

Well, we’re not sure of the answer to CNET’s question, but it seems Sony is pretty confident in them, because they just released the QX1 and QX30: two new smartphone-mounted lens cameras that augment your smartphone with an E-Mount and 30x optical zoom, respectively. Read more…

You get a leak! And you get a leak! Everybody gets a leak!

And it’s exciting because, in this case, the term ‘lens camera’ doesn’t really work anymore. This isn’t a whole camera contained in a lens… it’s more of a smartphone-attachable E-Mount that will let you swap out lenses! Read more…

a7r_4

Normally, when a camera announcement is about to drop, we wait for the official word and then summarize the good parts for you in a post. But since it’s Sunday evening and rumor has it this is a fairly video-specific announcement, we thought we’d do something a bit different.

And if you’re checking this late, don’t worry: the embed will have a link to the replay so you can watch the presentation, too. Read more…
