New York, NY (PRWEB) September 04, 2014
Adorama, one of the world’s largest photography, video, imaging and electronics retailers, is now offering for preorder the brand new Sony® QX1 and QX30 smartphone- or tablet-attachable lens-style cameras: http://www.adorama.com/results/sony_qx_lens.
The Sony QX1 is a game-changer that adds versatility to mobile device picture taking. A year after Sony released its first totally innovative, self-contained lens-style camera, the QX1 is able to shoot using any of Sony’s full line of E-mount lenses. Featuring a 20.1 megapixel APS-C-sized Exmor CMOS sensor and Bionz X processor, the QX1 includes such high-end features as RAW image capture, a pop-up flash and Superior Auto Mode. In fact, the QX1 is comparable with the recently discontinued Sony Alpha A5000.
The new Sony QX30 is the latest addition to the new category of zoom lens and sensor cameras, allowing smartphone and tablet users to get 30x closer and instantly share pictures online. It boasts an enhanced, back-illuminated 20.1 megapixel 1/2.3” Exmor R® CMOS image sensor, capturing higher image quality photos even in low light. Like its predecessor, the QX30 clips to a smartphone or can be held in hand, offering slick features like auto adjust and stabilization for perfect picture taking.

Industry Expert Mason Resnick Takes a “First Look” at the New Sony QX30 and QX1
Adorama Learning Center’s Mason Resnick, a digital imaging expert, is one of the first to review the new Sony QX lens cameras. An excerpt from Mason’s “First Look” review: “The Sony QX30 looks like a lens, but includes its own 20MP digital camera with a 30x zoom range of 25-750mm (35mm equivalent), upping the ante in both resolution and optics over its predecessor. The Exmor R CMOS sensor measures 1/2.3” (7.82mm) and offers an ISO range of 80-3200, boostable to 12,800. […] Both of Sony’s new Lens-style cameras represent further refinements in an innovative, if not quickly adopted, concept in an attempt to capitalize on the meteoric growth in smart phone popularity, and these new models represent a big step in expanding their utility as photographic tools.” Read more at: http://www.adorama.com/alc/0014817/blogarticle/sony-qx30-qx1-lens-style-cameras-expand-smart-phones-picture-taking-skills-first-look.
