Sony’s Detachable Smartphone Lens

Its just a camera….. No,Its a phone….

Yes, its both of








Sony is set to launch its detachable camera lenses. The lens will function independently without anything to support it. Unlike Nokia who is planning to launch 41-megapixel phones, Sony’s lenses are big, self-supporting and have features which include built-in sensor, power source and Wi-Fi connectivity. You can strap it on to a smartphone and so long as you are within the Wi-Fi range, your phone can act as a live viewfinder and take photos.

Rumours have it that this first lens will have the same sensor and lens as the RX100M2 point-and-shoot camera. RX100M2 is Sony’s recent release and is equipped with a 1-inch back-illuminated 21-megapixel Exmor R sensor, and a f/1.8-4.9 Carl Zeiss lens with 3.6x optical zoom.

The camera has received good reviews for its performance. Once the photos have been clicked they will be transferred to the smartphone or tablet using a Wi-Fi and NFC link.

Apart from this, Sony is slated to be working on another version of the lens. This will be smaller and will have more zooming power. It will have a universal mount for smartphones. This lens should be compatible with most phablets. However, as of yet there is no price or release date.
