Tablet Photography Strikes Back: Sony makes Tablet attachments for QX sensor-lens smartphone modules
For a variety of reasons, tablet photography spawned a series of jokes, jests, japes, and jeers across the internets (present company included). But a camera is a camera and a picture is a picture, and Sony is now giving tablet photography a new option, the new SPA-TA1 attachments. These allow the attachment of Sony's QX-series sensor-lens smartphone add-on lenses to tablets of different sizes. The attachments come in six different sizes, ranging from 85 × 65.6 × 33.9mm (smallest) to 190 × 65.6 × 33.9mm (largest), so in theory most tablets out there should be covered.
