Sony had made its lens-style camera to another level by introducing the new interchangeable-lens E-mount lens style camera QX1 and the new 30x optical zoom QX30 lens-style camera.
If you are unfamiliar with lens type camera, it means the camera does not have the LCD screen nor set of controls as a normal mirrorless camera or DSLR. Therefore, the lens style camera has to be paired with a smartphone in order to view the scene that we are going to capture.
The QX30 features a 30x optical zoom with Sony premium G lens and the Steady Shot image stabiliser, and it equip with the 20.4MP 1/2.3″ Exmor R CMOS sensor. The QX30 has a ISO range from ISO 80-3200, and ISO 80 – 12800 when using in Auto mode.
The QX-1 comes with a 20.1MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor, and it is an E-mount interchangeable lens camera. This means we can use our precious E-mount lenses on it or A-mount lenses with the adapter. It features a 25-points contrast-detection auto focus and has a ISO range from ISO100 – 16000. It also comes with a pop up flash unit and it uses the same battery NP-FW50 as the Sony E-mount series mirrorless camera. The QX-1 can shoot for 440 shots and it can produce the RAW image as well.
The QX30 will be sold at the RRP of SGD 649, while the QX-1 will be sold at SGD 499 as a body only and SGD599 with the SELP1650 power zoom lens.
How do you feel about it? Will you grab any of them as your next compact camera?
