A lens-shaped body for your smartphone

Camera phone or phone camera? The Sony Cyber-shot QX100 and QX10 are no ordinary cameras. Sony fit the entire camera into a lens-shaped body that snaps onto your smartphone. Once you snap a photo with the camera, it shows up on your phone's screen, where you can edit it, save it, and share it over text, e-mail, or to your social networks immediately.
