Meet the Sony QX30: an elegant tool that turns your smartphone into a 30x optical zoom camera. It uses NFC/WiFi to accomplish that. You will be able to shoot and view your images through your smartphone’s large LCD screen. What’s neat is you can save your images on both camera and phone memory conveniently. Apps are available for you to edit and share photos with others. Unlike regular cameras, you can always uncouple the Sony QX30 from your phone and mount it separately to capture photos.
The product offers image stabilization and better low light performance than your phone’s camera. The DSC-QX30 sports a back-illuminated 18MP 1 / 2.3″ Exmor R CMOS sensor and allows high-speed continuous shooting of maximally 10 fps. You can also use it to record high quality 1920 x 1080/60p HD video in low lighting situations. Sets you back $348 at the time of this writing.
