Today we get a first look at Sony’s latest venture into providing premium picture-taking services in an increasingly mobile world. In this case, that desire manifests itself in “Lens Cameras” that clip onto the front of iPhones and Androids and communicate via Wi-Fi. A companion app controls the add-on camera’s functions and saves the resulting photos onto an SD card. One of the cameras featured above is supposedly based on the RX100 which uses a large one-inch sensor, while the other has a 10x zoom and a 1/2.3-inch 18-megapixel sensor.
No word yet on any price or release date, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted as we hear more.
