And here are a couple of new pictures of the QX10 “lenscamera”. As you see it comes in white too (via Digicameinfo). I also got info from my sources (some of the info matches with Digicaminfo sources). So here are the news:
1) The name of these cameras is actually “Smart Shot“. It’s a mix between Smart-phone and Cyber-Shot.
2) The SmartShot lenses have in lens stabilization!
3) Again, it’s compatible with all Android and iOS devices via Playmemories APP (the new version will come out soon. My sources tested the BETA version). Connection via Wi-Fi/NFC
4) Videos in HD video 1080/30p, format MP4. Can be recorded with low noise even in dark places.
5) The captured image is saved automatically in both the smartphone and memory in the camera.
6) You can control zoom, exposure, white balance, and focus on your mobile device.
7) The QX10 has the same 1/2,3 inch 18 megapixel CMOS sensor and f/3,3-5.9 lens as the Sony WX150 ($400 on Amazon). WIll be priced at $250.
8) The QX100 costs $450. That is $300 less than the price of the RX100MII camera ($748 here at Amazon) that features the same sensor and lens! Greta pricing! You can get the best compact camera yet on market for $300 less.
Announcement on Tuesday (Spetember 4). Follow the event live on SonyAlphaRumors!!!
IMPORTANT: I promise you to post an image of a new E-mount camera the day after the event. Stay tuned :)
