    Sony's IFA 2014 event is in full swing, but Sony having the varied interests that it does, it got started with some non-smartphone hardware, showing off its latest cameras. But it wasn't long before the company transitioned into something a little more up our alley, revealing the latest Cyber-shot lens-style camera accessories for its smartphones and tablets. Yesterday we saw a leak detailing one of these products, the QX1 with its support for removable lenses, and now we see it joined by the new QX30, as well, a model we previously heard rumored earlier this summer. While the QX1 supports ...

    One year ago, back at IFA 2013, Sony introduced two unusual smartphone accessories, a pair of relatively high-end cameras that attached to existing handsets (or even tablets), giving them the sort of large lenses and optical zoom capabilities normally reserved for stand-alone dedicated cameras: its QX10 and QX100 Cyber-shot lens-style cameras.

The QX10 and QX100 models we have now give us a 10x zoom and 3.6x zoom, respectively, but word was that this year's edition would bump that figure up to something like 30x zoom. Now we've got some new evidence that might just support that idea. A new listing at the South Korean National Radio ...

    Last year at IFA, we saw Sony announce its Cyber-shot QX10 and QX100 pair of “lens-style cameras,” external add-on cameras that can either clip on to smartphones (and later, tablets) or be used remotely, communicating with their companion apps over WiFi and giving photography buffs the sort of large sensors, quality lenses, and high-performance optical zooms that are all too often unavailable on phones. For as powerful as both cameras sounded, they were kind of a hard sell, targeting neither the prosumer camera enthusiast nor the mobile hot-shot for whom traveling light and sparse is ...
