Sony’s Lens Style Unit Takes Your Existing Lenses!

bigThis is the successor to last years QX lens-style camera. This was originally intended to take the photo taking experience and quality on smartphones to a semi-pro level.

Unfortunately thanks to Sony’s poor implementation of software, the overall picture taking experience was close to a disaster. But Sony isn’t leaving the line-up yet. What we see today is the new QX lens – the successor to the old lens. This lens however is different in a way that it would not be coming with a lens module attached. Just like a mirrorless camera, it would take on exisitng E-mount camera lenses on – which is great for anyone who has heavily invested in the Sony lineup of lenses.

According to sources from SonyAlphaRumors the QX1 will be unveiled tomorrow alongside the Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, Z3 Tablet Compact and a duo of wearables.

Apple iPhone 6 Will Carry NFC This Time!

iphone6-nfcApple likes to stay conservative and at times really slow to implement new features – specially hardware until they are really sure about something.

It’s been a couple of years Android has been rocking NFC and to an extent it does make life simple and even though it may not replace something it is good to have. The tiny chip in the image above is supposedly it, an NFC controller from NXP Semiconductors. It is intended to give the iPhone 6 the ability to conduct wireless payments, simplify device pairing, and facilitate content sharing between devices.

NFC isn’t huge yet, but if Apple manages to pull off something crazy, it would be awesome indeed!
