The coolest gadget possible is now on sale at Sony Canada. Hop on over to Sony to observe the Sony Smartphone Attachable Camera that is on sale for $199.99, down from $249.99.
This ‘camera’ will almost turn your smart phone into a DSLR camera. The Sony camera can be used attached to your smart phone, which is easy given little flip up support clips. You can also hold it in your hand without physically attaching it to your camera. That way you can be watching what you are going to take a picture of on your smart phone screen while holding the lens at whatever angle you need for the best shot. The smartphone and lens communicate wirelessly via Wi-Fi, and there will be an application to install on your phone to give you full control over the Sony camera portion. You can also edit and share photos instantly online via the application. Your images can be saved on both the camera and on your phone. The iAuto function automatically adjusts settings on the camera based on shot conditions and there is a sensor for low-light conditions as well.
The Sony camera features a 10x zoom and 18MP quality photos. High quality video is also possible with the Sony camera, as it will shoot 1080/30p HD video with low grain.
This Sony Attachable Camera is, frankly, the camera of the future. With everyone using their smart phone for taking pictures these days, actual cameras are becoming outdated. Even DSLR cameras are being left at home in favour of the convenience of something that fits in your pocket. The Sony attachable camera fits in your pocket (as long as you are not wearing skinny jeans). It is easy to carry and just throw in your bag. It pairs wirelessly with your smart phone and can turn a mediocre photo into an amazing photo in seconds. I went into a Sony Store and saw this attachable camera demoed on my own smart phone: I wanted one right then and there. My husband had to drag me out of the store so I did not buy one that second all the while reminding me I already own a DSLR. I might just sell my big DSLR camera and buy this Sony smartphone attachable camera instead.
