Sony DSC-QX10From the leaks we’ve seen so far there is a very strong possibility that Sony will be launching new ‘lens-camera’ attachments designed to be used with smartphones. We’ve already seen what appear to look like official press images of the lenses and now SonyAlphaRumors has leaked some snippets from the manuals of each lens.

There are two lenses, the Sony DSC-QX10 and Sony DSC-QX100. The QX10 is likely to be the cheaper lens with 1/2.3-inch 18MP camera sensor and f/3.3-5.9 lens. The more expensive QX100 has the same sensor and Zeiss lens as the RX100MII and features manual ring control. Click through for a schematic of both lenses.

    I wonder if you can use it without a phone! Mh….. Finally something creative from Sony!

  • Izamanaick

    Now there’s an idea.


    i keep trying to convince myself by looking at pictures comparing the z to honami that the slightly bigger and longer form isn’t a big deal but it’s hard

    why did they have to do that i would have preferd the phone to be slightly thicker instead of longer i keep trying to twist and turn it to accept this but it’s hard

    I am sure a 4.6 will follow and would a more perfect size ! :)

  • Tangent Lin

    I believe this idea works and at least better than Samsung galaxy camera. Samsung really lacking of innovative.

  • Mac

    I wanna know how much for qx100, then buy it and attach it to my acro S!

  • PowerSonic

    u wont b able to c wat u r clicking…

  • AsadMulla

    you would need a phone to make settings

  • Tony

    I hope that it can work on Xperia Go and not only in the higher up models. Until I can Upgrade my phone some day soon.

  • ee

    I hope you can also use that as a webcam. It’s a good idea for those who run portrait photography businesses—great quality snaps with the computer monitor as the viewfinder. Makes it easy to frame photos and spot defects on a big display.

  • Daniel

    I want QX100

  • Mohammed Khired

    yeah , like attach it to your dick or something ,

  • Mohammed Khired

    i don’t think the processor will handle the lens very well…

  • zyzzyva

    Sony’s supposed to surprise us with all these things and 4K video record of Honami on opening day, but these secrets are keep leaking. Poor Sony.

  • lovebmw

    Yup, immak ma ishtakat lamma sawweet heek!

  • Tech Gospel

    I think all the processing happens in the lens. I suspect all the phone does is act as a remote viewer (Like the SmartWatch did)

  • Tech Gospel

    Ok, the Zeiss one is definitely on my shopping list now… bumping off my Lumix upgrade.

  • Mac

    Yea that would be awesome :-D.

    Hopefully it’s not a proble.

  • faggot

    No one gives a fuck what you prefer. Cunt.

  • faggot

    No big company is going to make an expensive gadget work with a piece of shit device just so ‘Tony’ can upgrade the phone to something else. Fucking selfish fuck.

  • Dr. Snickers

    Pointless crap. If I’m required to carry an extra device, I can take my digicam anyway…

  • UhOh

    Very very very horrible compression artifacts in the blue sky / upper right corner and the details at the bottom.
    As usual with Sony…

    They better improve the quality of actual cameras than bringing all sort of mumbo jumbo extras. We have issues with video sounds, with photo noise and quality, with battery, with many glitches..So video 4k and these lenses…for who? How about a wall support? Why not 3D glasses or 120MP camera? To see the Moon.

  • PsFreedom

    Yes, It may use BIOZ for processing

  • Putcha

    No flash? Wut?

  • Herman

    If they wanted to have a superb camera, they should’ve used a larger sensor. It’s nearly impossible to have an amazing camera in a device as slim as the Xperia Z, especially when cramming 20 megapixels into that sensor.

    Look at the Lumia 1020, that bulk is there for a reason. For such a camera that bulk is even relatively thin!
