Sony's unique lens cameras are now official, and they're coming to a smartphone or tablet near you beginning later this month. As expected, there are two models on offer. Both cameras lack the display and controls of an ordinary point-and-shoot -- instead, you'll pair your Android or iOS handset or slate with the camera via WiFi, and use that device to adjust settings and frame each shot.

For more info: http://bit.ly/19zVTNX Today the new Sony® QX10 and QX100 Lens-Style cameras hit doorsteps and store shelves. To celebrate, we couldn't help but open up a QX100 Smartphone Attachable Lens-style Camera to see how all the parts of a RX100 II camera inside this lens form factor. During the taping, we completely geeked out on the stackable components. It felt like the holidays with one surprise after another. And if you're curious if the camera still worked after it was put back together...it did but you'll have to wait for that video. Stay tuned.

Sony QX100 Phone Lens Camera Hands On Preview & Test SUBSCRIBE HERE: http://bit.ly/T4Pu6p Sony has today announced two possibly game-changing cameras. The DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 can link with a smartphone via Wi-Fi to transform it into a powerful camera.

Where the phone comes in is essentially as a live viewfinder, trigger and image uploader. The QX100 uses the premium lens and large sensor from the award-winning Cyber-shot RX100, while the QX10 uses the lens and sensor from its 10x zoom compacts.

Coming up to the IFA this year, we had a long list of devices we were looking forward to seeing, but there were only two big mysteries: the Galaxy Gear's hardware, and these crazy-looking lens-cameras from Sony. Well, we got the answers we wanted about both earlier this week, and while the Galaxy Gear is simple enough to understand, these Sony cameras are just so outside what we're used to that it was still a trick to wrap our heads around what it would be like to use one of these guys. Well, that's what the IFA, and all its opportunities for hands-on experiences with just-announced hardware, is there for! After giving Sony's new Xperia Z1 Android a thorough once-over, we turned our attention to these lens-style cameras, Sony's Cyber-shot QX10 and QX100. Are they going to be usable in the least? Too bulky for their own good? Satisfy your curiosity and check out our video below, going hands-on with Sony's latest creation.

SUBSCRIBE for more Latest TECH NEWS & RELEASES including iPHONE 5C & iPHONE 5S - http://www.youtube.com/HonestTechGuys Sony QX100 and QX10 attachable Lenses for Xperia, Android & iPhone - Official Commercial / TV Spot New Sony QX100 and QX10 "Lens-Style Cameras" Redefine the Mobile Photography Experience New Concept Cameras Link Flawlessly to Smartphone, Offering High-Zoom, Stunning Quality Images and Full HD Videos for Instant Sharing Merging the creative power of a premium compact camera with the convenience and connectivity of today's smartphones, Sony today introduced two "lens-style" QX series cameras that bring new levels of fun and creativity to the mobile photography experience. The innovative Cyber-shot™ QX100 and QX10 models utilize Wi-Fi® connectivity to instantly transform a connected smartphone into a versatile, powerful photographic tool, allowing it to shoot high-quality images and full HD videos to rival a premium compact camera. It's an entirely new and different way for consumers to capture and share memories with friends and family. With a distinct lens-style shape, the new cameras utilize the latest version of Sony's PlayMemories™ Mobile application (available for iOS™ and Android™ devices, version 3.1 or higher required) to connect wirelessly to a smartphone, converting the bright, large LCD screen of the phone into a real-time viewfinder with the ability to release the shutter, start/stop movie recordings, and adjust common photographic settings like shooting mode, zoom, Auto Focus area and more. For added convenience, the app can be activated using NFC one-touch with compatible devices. Once pictures are taken, they are saved directly on both the phone and the camera*, and can be shared instantly via social media or other common mobile applications. "With the new QX100 and QX10 cameras, we are making it easier for the ever-growing population of 'mobile photographers' to capture far superior, higher-quality content without sacrificing the convenience and accessibility of their existing mobile network or the familiar 'phone-style' shooting experience that they've grown accustomed to," said Patrick Huang, director of the Cyber-shot business at Sony. "We feel that these new products represent not only an evolution for the digital camera business, but a revolution in terms of redefining how cameras and smartphones can cooperatively flourish in today's market." The new compact, ultra-portable cameras can be attached to a connected phone with a supplied mechanically adjustable adapter, or can be held separately in hand or even mounted to a tripod while still maintaining all functionality and connectivity with the smartphone. They can also be operated as completely independent cameras if desired, as both the QX100 and QX10 cameras have a shutter release, memory card slot and come with a rechargeable battery. Premium, Large-Sensor QX100 Camera The Cyber-shot QX100 camera features a premium, high-quality 1.0 inch, 20.2 MP Exmor R™ CMOS sensor. Identical to the sensor found in the acclaimed Cyber-shot RX100 II camera, it allows for exceptionally detailed, ultra-low noise images in all types of lighting conditions, including dimly lit indoor and night scenes. The sensor is paired with a fast, wide-aperture Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 3.6x optical zoom and a powerful BIONZ image processor, ensuring beautifully natural, detail-packed still images and Full HD videos. As an extra refinement, the QX100 sports a dedicated control ring for camera-like adjustment of manual focus and zoom. Several different shooting modes can be selected while using the QX100 including Program Auto, Aperture Priority, Intelligent Auto and Superior Auto, which automatically recognizes 44 different shooting conditions and adjusts camera settings to suit. sony "sony qx100" "sony qx10" "sony xperia" xperia android iphone "iphone 5c" "iphone 5s" apple "sony camera" "sony lense" offical commercial release launch latest gadget tech technology photography "one touch" attachment "touch af" detachable future futuristic amazing crazy trends trendy trending 2013 review unboxing video photo pic picture hd sensor canon samsung nikon brand cool japan japanese business honesttechguys High-Zoom Cyber-shot QX10 model Boasting a powerful 18.2 effective megapixel Exmor R™ CMOS sensor and versatile 10x optical zoom Sony G Lens, the Cyber-shot QX10 camera allows mobile photographers to bring distant subjects closer without sacrificing image quality or resolution, a common problem in smartphones.

Not content with just the fine range of full-frame DSLRs such as the D600, D800, D800E and D4, Nikon has released this retro-ish DSLR - the Df (http://bit.ly/NikonDff) - with a design inspired by the classic Nikon FM cameras. This could potentially tug at the heartstrings of all those with a bit of sentiment for the cameras of old. But is this worth the similar-to-D800 price tag?

The brand new X-Pro1 is Fujifilm's flagship digital camera, the ultimate device for old-school hobbyists who crave the style and mechanical control of classic cams. Do not be fooled by the retro design, performance is absolutely state of the art. This camera lit up our labs with some of the best scores of the year, solidifying the X-Pro1 as far more than a simple gimmick, but rather a legitimate contender to the very top of the line. Announced and released alongside the X-Pro1 were three prime lenses to fit the camera's new X-mount. We tested two of them, the 18mm f/2.0 and the 35mm f/1.4, and did some sample shooting with the third, a 60mm f/2.4 macro. All three seem to have been constructed with the same precision and care as the camera itself, leaving us with a very satisfying, albeit very expensive package. They don't make 'em like they used to, and Fujifilm has fully adopted this message, extending the philosophy not only to the design style of their first mirrorless camera, but to the quality of its construction as well. The X-Pro1 is the finest Fujifilm model currently available, and a surprise contender for first place in many of our image quality lab tests. Of course it's no longer true to call the X-Pro1's retro inspiration "groundbreaking." After all, Fuji has already found success with their X100 and X10 cameras, not to mention similar efforts by the Olympus PEN series and now their new E-M5. However the X-Pro1 is certainly the best of this new generation of old-school cameras, thanks largely to the performance of three new "X-mount" lenses: one for macro or portrait photography, one for wide angle landscapes, and one for a bit of both. We were consistently amazed by the razor-sharp detail produced by each lens, all of which are primes (meaning fixed-zoom) and therefore less vulnerable to ugly distortion effects such as chromatic aberration. Color rendition was also remarkable. When using the most accurate color mode (or "Film Simulation" mode, for Fuji cameras), test scores surpassed even juggernauts like the Canon 5D Mark III, meaning human subjects will look especially realistic. Rates of unwanted image noise were also relatively low, and better than close competition like the Sony NEX-7 or Olympus E-M5, even at the sky-high maximum sensitivity level. This, combined with the lens family's wide-open apertures, as well as some very strong dynamic range, makes the X-Pro1 an ideal camera for low light photography. But if there's one feature that symbolizes the X-Pro1's fusion of classic and cutting-edge, that's got to be the new hybrid-viewfinder. While it's possible to frame your shots using the no-frills optical mode, an alternate and much cooler method is the heads-up display that overlays relevant data, sort of like a fighter jet cockpit. Even though the camera's rear LCD monitor is of very high quality, you'll find the viewfinder is simply too impressive to ignore. The third and final mode is fully electronic, for the most accurate framing, and all three options are toggled by a mechanical lever. In fact just about everything on this camera is controlled by a mechanical lever, or manual dial, or rotating ring. That's what makes the X-Pro1 so much fun. While the phenomenal images are certainly rewarding in their own right, actually getting out there to shoot with this camera is as empowering as it is convenient. There's something about clicking a manual aperture ring into place that a software menu just can't replicate, and so much control at your fingertips makes for a more painless experience too. Beginners may be overwhelmed, but photography purists will fall in love with the design. No camera is perfect, obviously, and neither is this one. We had some trouble handling the body because the rear panel is so crowded with buttons. The decision to place both the AE/AF-L button and the quick menu button directly onto the thumb rest was a bad one in our opinion. Video recording is the most significant drawback of all. Fujifilm's new "X-Trans" sensor design is clearly outstanding for resolving detail, but the tradeoff is distracting, artifacted video footage. This camera is purely for stills. Ultimately the Fujifilm X-Pro1 is an exemplary marriage of form and function, at once taking advantage of both proven, traditional manual control, as well as modern technological advantages. Although the asking price is steep at $1700 for just the body, that money goes to quality, not novelty; and the lenses are sharp enough to easily justify their $600-650 cost. We enthusiastically recommend the X-Pro1 for anyone longing for some hands-on photography or, for that matter, anyone interested in sharp, gorgeous pictures.

http://sony.com Like I've said a thousand times, we all have a camera these days...it's called a phone. Unfortunately, the camera installed in our phones is limited -- the images aren't detailed, they tend to struggle in low light and their zoom is barely existent . So the guys at Sony had a decision to make -- either try to fight against smart phones or think of new and different ways to work with them ...obviously they went the smart route when they built the new QX ""lens-style"" cameras. These cameras connect wirelessly to your smartphone and allow you to take and share incredibly high quality photos. The first is the QX10, which is an 18 megapixel camera with an impressive 10x optical zoom lens that blows away a smartphone's digital zoom. It also has an image sensor about twice as big as what's found on most smartphone cameras -- bigger sensor means better quality. It only weighs 3 ounces and is around an inch thick. The next is the QX100, which is a 20 megapixel camera with a BIG 1-inch image sensor which means insanely high quality photos. And each lens can also shoot HD videos. Both ""lens-cameras"" can snap onto your phone with the adapter or can be held separately for self-portraits, group shots or other fun photos. And connecting is incredibly easy -- for android just enable your NFC and tap your phone to the camera, and for iPhones, just launch the app and input a password the first time you connect.
