ANNOUNCEMENT: Sony Releases World's First Smartphone-Attachable Lens-Style Camera!

Sony has just announced its release of the world's first smartphone-attachable lens-style camera!

Snap it on your iPhone, prop it on its legs, or hold it in your hands, the DSC-QX10 or QX100 (coming soon) does not require any wires or very much technical know-how. If you can download an app and press the camera icon on your iPhone, you will be well on your way to snapping images pretty much right out of the box.

Check out the specs on Sony's site for:

DSC-QX10 (18MP with Sony Lens) $249.99

DSC-QX100 (Professional grade Zeiss lens and 20MP) $499.99

I'll let you know what these are like once I receive my test model. I can tell you this: I hope the next iteration of the iPhone has a slightly larger screen. It would make this experience quite interesting. Also, kiss point-and-shoots goodbye!
