Sony camera lens

Deliveries start on September 27

Update: AC reader skippyrulezzz points out that the QX100 is now listed as well. The bigger sensor will cost a bit more, and it checks in at $498. Still the same September 27 date for shipping.

The Sony QX10 — that quirky lens camera that attaches to your smartphone we saw yesterday — is already listed for pre-order at Amazon. Checking in at $248, the lens attachment comes in both black and white, and other vendors have built starter kits with cases, wee little tripods and SD cards built around the camera.

AC reader Horaland H tells us that it ships September 17 in the UK, but it's a little more costly at $279. 

While the DX10 doesn't give you the power you get from something like a DSLR or good micro 4/3 camera (that lack of RAW image files is puzzling), for the average consumer they should take great pictures. Surely better than anything you would get from any other smartphone, no matter how many Lumapixels MegaPixels are on board.

If anyone's interested in having a play with one of these (guilty) hit the link below to check things out. No word on when to expect to see the bigger QX100 just yet.
