Sony is tipped to announce yet another two new concept imaging devices when IFA 2013 kicks off in Berlin next week. The pair of new ‘lens-camera’ devices which will arrive has already been spotted in the past – and they are the DSC-QX10 and the DSC-QX100 (whose user manual has already leaked out), where they happen to toy with the idea of being mounted onto a smartphone, while containing a built-in imaging sensor, Bionz processor, Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, an SD memory card slot and of course, a battery.
Not only that, it seems that there are suggestions going around that Sony will christen these lens-cameras the ‘Smart Shot’, which is a mash-up of the words Smartphone and Cyber-Shot. The lenses will also see the incorporation of optical steadyshot stabilization so that even beginners can capture some decent looking shots. Of course, there was an earlier rumor that this particular camera accessory could be known as EspressOn. You know what the Bard has mentioned in the past, a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet, so we would like to think that regardless of whether it is called Smart Shot or EspressOn, it would still get the job done in a satisfactory manner.
