New photos of Sony Smart Shot lens show how they attach to your phone

New photos of Sony Smart Shot lens show how they attach to your phone
On Wednesday, besides introducing the Sony Xperia Z1, Sony is expected to reveal the Sony Smart Shot line of interchangeable lens. Using a magnet to adhere to a smartphone body, the Smart Shot line will apparently be introduced with two different models available. We've already gone through the difference between the QX-100 and the lower priced QX-10, and on Saturday we showed you a silver and gold model that could be offered along with the black colored version that we have been seeing.

Are smartphone owners willing to plunk down between $400 and $500 additional dollars in order to turn their handset into a more than serviceable camera? The $450 QX-100 basically turns your phone into the $750 Sony RX100MII point and shoot camera with a 20.2MP CMOS sensor, low-light friendly f/1.8 aperture and 3.6x optical zoom. The less expensive QX-10 matches the lens on the $400 Sony WX150 with an 18MP CMOS sensor and f/3.3-5.9 lens.

Some more pictures of the two lens have been taken for you to stare at. If photography is a major part of your life, but you don't feel like carrying around more gadgets in your pockets, the DSC QX-100 and the DSC QX-10 can be a great solution. Check out the slideshow below! And don't be put off by the blurry text in the middle of some of the pictures. Those were bigoted comments that were censored.
