Sony 'lens camera' concept manuals leak, show standard camera controls

updated 10:03 am EDT, Fri August 16, 2013

Manual scans show shutter buttons, zoom controls, tripod mount

More details for Sony's "lens camera" attachments have surfaced, in the form of illustrations from the manual. The DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100, shown in images earlier this week, include the usual microphone, tripod mount, zoom controls and shutter buttons as other cameras, albeit in a non-standard form, along with a rechargeable, removable battery pack.

The images from Sony Alpha Rumors show the lenses as having slots for memory cards, a status display panel, and a large number of controls, effectively allowing the user to take photos without needing to wirelessly connect to a smartphone as intended, albeit without a viewfinder. The 20.2-megapixel QX100 is said to weigh 179 grams (6.3ounces) fully loaded, while the QX10 and its 18-megapixel CMOS sensor will weigh 105 grams (3.7ounces).

The report also states that there will be an event on September 4th in New York, where Sony will be providing a US business update, as well as revealing "some exciting news in the digital imaging, computer, television, and audio categories."
