Following Sony and Olympus, they began to develop lenses for smartphones and tablets. Remember the Sony DSC-QX10 and other devices? If you don't remember, there will be a link to the review at the end of the post. From my own experience, I can say that the thing is extremely interesting, I still use it when traveling together with smartphones based on Android and iOS, now it's Sony Xperia Z3 and iPhone 6 Plus. When you want to get a shot like on a camera, why not spend some time? Let's take a look at what Olympus has to offer.
The smartphone mount is unusual, it seems to lie in the slots of the lens. The connection is via Wi-Fi and through a special application, it will appear in versions for Android and iOS. The lens has all the necessary control buttons, so you can use it without a viewfinder, and it is just a smartphone that acts as it. Sensor resolution 16 Mp, there is a slot for a microSD memory card. The lens weighs 147 grams. You can shoot both photos and videos, 3x optical zoom.
The reviews say that the device is comfortable to use with phablets, for example, with the Samsung GALAXY Note 4. Using the application on your smartphone, you can select the shooting mode, try various filters, there is an automatic mode and, of course, the mode of viewing the footage.
Finally, let me remind you about the review of Sony DSC-QX10, the second generation of these amazing cameras has already appeared, I will try to prepare a review.
Well, it will be interesting to try the Olympus Air A01 live. It is gratifying that in addition to Sony, other manufacturers have taken up this idea.
