Sony have announced a new series of cameras where all the tech is in the lens, and your phone is the viewfinder...

Also, here's a video (possibly fake) of a guy taking a lens and sensor off the screen, and controlling a lens remotely

This above video looks like a working prototype of the concept camera WVIL, but could well be another fake of theirs, especially give 250p . The concept is sound though.

It's an interesting concept, Ricoh tried it a few years back but without the remote viewing.

The Sony's haven't been announced yet, they will be in the beginning of september.

 

The QX100 is basically a Sony RX100 II. It has the same lens, sensor, battery, sd-card, but no screen. I'm curious if it will shoot raw (afraid it won't). The big question: what's it gonna cost? If it's substantially less than a RX100 II, and if it works on non-Sony phones/tablets, I might be interested.

 

And I think they should make a pancake version with the same 1-inchsensor (to keep things small) and a fixed focal lenght. Put that into a grip housing, like Nokia has for the 1020.

The WVIL video is fake, confirmed by the makers.

 


In our quest to excite, inspire and to provoke, we came up with the idea to stage a show floor product introduction at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where we played the parts of product manager and visitors to convey the idea of the product in a realistic setting.

We understand that both the YouTube video and the website have led some to believe that this was a mere hoax. And while Camera Futura is far from being released, we created these assets to spark a discussion around the question of “what if” the product was really available. We believe such a product will soon be demoed on the CES show floor in some not too far off time.
