Sony Xperia Z1 Compact to have its own QX10/QX100 camera attachment case?
Sony launched an official camera attachment case for its Xperia Z1 f in Japan. Called SPA-ACX4, the case costs about $29, and allows users to attach any of the QX10 or QX100 lens-style cameras to the handset. The Xperia Z1 f is the Japanese version of the water-resistant Xperia Z1 Compact, having the same size and specs, so we’re expecting the Compact to get the SPA-ACX4 case as well.

Announced by Sony in September, the QX10 and QX100 lens-style cameras are especially made to be paired with smartphones (they even work with Apple’s iPhone), turning them into more advanced cameras. The QX10 costs $248, featuring 10x optical zoom, while the QX100 costs $498, offering a very large 1-inch 20.2 MP Exmor R sensor with Carl Zeiss f/1.8 lens and 3.6x optical zoom - these are DSLR-like features.

As for the Xperia Z1 Compact itself, this should be released around the world starting early February, costing around $500 unlocked. Our Sony Xperia Z1 Compact review shows that the Japanese company really nailed it with this handset. It seems to be the best mini smartphone released until now - and it’s no wonder, since it’s as powerful as the larger, critically-acclaimed Xperia Z1.

so you're putting a 20 mp camera on a phone with a 20mp camera? i know its still much better but i think this should be for the devices with wimpy cameras not the Z1 mini
