Introducing Sony’s QX10 and QX 100…aka ‘The Smart Lens’

We here at BLURPPY are constantly blown away by technology and this new product from Sony has just scrambled our minds.  The traditional or OLD SCHOOL way of taking photos was you grab your camera, point and click right?  Well given the influx of smartphones and tablets and the fact that they all have cameras, Sony thought, why not change things up a bit.

Sony-smart-lensWell “change things” is just what they did when they announced their the DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 Smart Lenses.  Easily connect the DSC-QX10 or DSC-QX100 to your Apple IOS or Android devices without wires, cables or cords thanks to One-touch NFC.  As an added bonus that is sure to make your life easier it comes with built-in wireless streaming with Wi-Fi so sharing your shots and videos to Facebook or Instagramis effortless.  Your phone acts as a live viewfinder, it sees what the lens sees!

-sony-smart-lens-5Once you take that perfect picture it is instantly ready to edit and share with friends and family directly from your phone with all your favorite editing and sharing apps. Whether you want to add a dash of color or completely rework your video presentation, the Sony Smart Lenses make it all possible.

-Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-QX100-Lens-style-Camera-640x353As if that wasn’t great enough, here is a REALLY cool feature.  The lens doesn’t need to be attached to your phone or tablet to work.  Simply uncouple it from your device and the Sony Smart Lenses give you the freedom to take photos from any angle.  The NFC connection allows you to hold the lens above a crowd and you can see the image through your device as you hold that down by your side.  This allows you to always get the picture you want even if you are going down low for that baby kitten shot or leaning around a corner on a spy mission!

-sony-smart-lens6The Sony Smart Lenses even come with a universal tripod mount so portraits just got even easier.  Simply place the lens on a tripod, go across the room with your smartphone or tablet, line yourself up, zoom in or out and CLICK, take a perfect picture instantly ready to send or save.
