Sony to Introduce Two iPhone-Compatible Lenses in Leaked Manual

iPhone-compatible lenses to come under Sony label

 

Do you love your iPhone 5? Of course you do. It’s no secret that Apple customers are some of the happiest on the planet, but do you love your camera? Despite Nokia’s anti-iPhone commercials, I can say that you would be hard-pressed to find a comparable camera to the iPhone 5’s. With that said, however, you may be wondering why it is that Apple has decided to stick with its 8-megapixel camera when most Android manufacturers, excluding Google’s 10MP camera on the Moto X, have decided to press forward into the future. Apple has used the same 8MP camera in the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and soon, the iPhone 5S. When will we get to a 12 or 13MP camera? The answer is in the mind of Apple’s engineering team and CEO Tim Cook. 

 

Sony has decided to extend benevolence to iPhone users. Okay: you don’t want to purchase a Sony phone; the company gets that. At the same time, you’re dissatisfied with your 8MP camera. What do you do? Sony has thought through all this and come up with a solution: instead of forcing a Sony smartphone on you, it will instead produce two lenses that can both work with your existing iPhone 5. 

 

According to tech site Sony Alpha Rumors, Sony will unveil two lenses that are compatible with both iPhones as well as non-Sony Android smartphones next month called the DSC-QX10 and the DSC-QX100. The QX10 comes with an 18-megapixel camera while the QX100 comes with a 20.2MP camera. Both camera lenses will come with a panel that displays battery life and SD card memory, not to mention a zoom lever, microphone, and a jack for increased functionality. The 20.2MP version comes with all of the above features, but includes a ring control. 

 

Both of these lenses provide ultra HD camera resolutions so that, whether you have an iPhone or Android phone, you can still take pictures with a resolution that is similar to that of a Nokia smartphone. Nokia’s Lumia 1020 takes 41MP photos, so you won’t match it entirely – but you can come close. With Sony’s desire to produce camera lenses and 20MP cameras, you can see that Sony is aiming for not only Samsung with its 6.4-inch Xperia Z Ultra phablet, but also Nokia and Windows cameras in general. When not gunning to become “the Apple of Android,” Sony has decided to go head-to-head against Apple and produce a camera lens that makes Apple’s iPhone camera better.
