IFA: Sony launches QX1, QX30 'lens-style' cameras

Sony QX1 has 20.1-megapixel APS-C sensor, can take E-Mount lenses

Sony surprisingly launched two "lens-style" cameras at IFA, rather than the single device was originally rumored. The QX30 is similar to the original QX10 and QX100 launched one year ago, but adds a 30x zoom, while the QX1 allows users to attach any E-Mount lenses they already own, giving the photographer more customization options.

The QX1 has a 20.1-megapixel APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor paired with the Bionz X image processor, giving it a sensitivity range of ISO 100 to ISO 16,000, and allowing it to record 1080p video at 30fps. Just like the others in the range, it pairs with a smartphone using NFC and Wi-Fi to act as a viewfinder and to provide camera controls, with the device also having a memory card slot for storing the Jpeg and RAW images, and a built-in flash.

The more basic QX30 houses a 20.4-megapixel 1/2.3-inch Exmor R CMOS sensor, with a maximum ISO of 12,800 and able to record 1080p video at 60fps. It too has a pop-up flash and a memory card slot, though its battery only holds up for around 200 photographs compared to the QX1's 440, and is able to continuously take photographs at a rate of up to 10 frames per second.
