Here’s a pleasant surprise from Sony Malaysia, the Sony Lens-style QX Camera with interchangeable E-mount lens, ILCE-QX1, is now available for preorder on Sony’s website. The QX1 was unveiled only about a month ago at the company’s event in IFA 2014.
The ILCE-QX1 Lens-style camera comes in two different configurations, you can choose to preorder just the Lens-style camera, QX1, on its own for RM1,399, or pick the bundle that comes with a SELP1650 lens for RM1,699. As a preorder promotion, Sony will be offering an 8GB microSDHC memory card worth RM39 with every purchase. The promotion is available during the preorder period only, from 9th to 20th October 2014. Delivery will start on 20 October 2014 and will require a few days to reach your doorstep.
If you already have a collection of E-mount lens for your Sony cameras, the RM1,399 ILCE-QX1 is the perfect accessory you can get for your smartphone, so you can bring all the wonders of E-mount lens right onto your smartphone. Like the QX10 and QX100 lens-style cameras we reviewed before, the QX1 can connect to most Android and iOS devices via Sony’s very own PlayMemories app that are available in the App Store and Play Store.
