Sony's QX1 combines the QX10 and QX100 into the ultimate smartphone DSLR kit
Remember when Sony thought it could convince people to leave their DSLRs at home for their smartphones?
Well, two attempts with the snap-on lens QX10 and QX100 haven't exactly seen the public being all that enthusiastic. Though being far better than the little external lens people would fix onto their iPhones, Sony's attempts seemed mere novelties and as a result, have not been taken seriously enough.
Perhaps all that will change with the new QX1 lens that will pretty much make your smartphone a smaller Alpha camera. From the leaked photos, the model even includes a tiny pop-up flash and what looks to be a decent sensor.
