Tweet from Nokia makes fun of Sony's new Lens-Style Cameras

Tweet from Nokia makes fun of Sony's new Lens-Style Cameras
On Wednesday, besides introducing the Sony Xperia Z1, Sony introduced its two new interchangeable lens which it calls the Sony Lens-Style Cameras. The two models, the DSC QX-100 and DSC QX-10, work with an Android or iOS phone and can attach to the handset or a tripod, or will work just held in your hand with the phone acting as a remote control.

Nokia might have just been sold to Microsoft, but that deal won't close for some time. So Nokia decided to sent out a tweet making fun of the Lens-Style Camera showing a lens taped to the camera on the Nokia Lumia 1020. "The perfect match?," asks the tweet.

Considering that Microsoft has been showing off its funny bone as has Nokia in a number of new ads, when those two firms unite after the acquisition closes, imagine what kind of funny stuff we might see then!

And apparently they are running out of jokes, because they used the same picture to make fun of the Galaxy S4 Zoom.

I don't even see how it's funny. I mean I'm actually considering buying the 100. It's basically a DSLR quality camera without the bulk. and screen. Plus you can set it up and take pictures remotely, how is that not cool? I just hope sony opens up the manual mode that is locked, as that would be the only killer.

It is not DLSR Quality it is the quality of your average point and shoot.

DSLR quality? do you even know what is DSLR quality? A typical DSLR has more than 6x the sensor size of a lumia 1020.

I could laugh about the picture if I didn't know why Nokia is tweeting stuff like that or the KitKat joke yesterday. Nokia (or the brand Nokia) is fighting for pure survival in these days. And this way, they want to send out a sign of life. The main message is: Don't forget us when looking at all these new devices that aren't from us. Very sad actually.

I dont think this is Nokia. The style is more like Microsoft's.
