Sony IFA 2013 presentation live-blogging on the internet and live-streamed on YouTube
Live-Blogging of the Sony IFA 2013 announcement
The Sony IFA 2013 is scheduled to being at 10am New York City time (9/4/13) but as always these things start fashionably late since there are so many things that can go wrong at a
fashion trade show.
The event is also streamed live on YouTube.
Sony Sensor-Lens Modules for Smartphones were for pre-order (now gone!)
As of a 10:42am ET recheck, the new Sony Sensor-Lens Modules for Smartphones have been removed from the website, but they will return once they are officially announced. As of the time of this update, the links point to Amazon error pages.
The QX100 with a 1-inch 20mp sensor and a f1.8 3.6x optical zoom Zeiss lens is available for pre-order at Amazon for $500 with a September 27 release estimate. Kinda like an RX100 to be attached on top of your smartphone!
The QX10 with 1/2.3" sensor and a 10x optical zoom G lens is available for pre-order at Amazon for $250 with a September 27 release estimate. Kinda like a compact-compact Cybershot on top of your smartphone.
Ricoh GXR system fans will tell you, "Hey, we told you so! This is a good idea baby!"
