Earlier this week, the SonyAlphaRumors blog posted pictures of a compete Sony camera inside a traditional-looking camera lens. On Friday, the site followed up with images from the camera manuals and found that the lenses support tripods. The interesting idea behind the Sony QX10 and QX100 is to add a high-quality image sensor and optics to an existing smartphone, turning the handset into both a viewfinder and storage device. These snap-on products would allow smartphone owners to upgrade their camera without buying a new phone.
