Sony’s new ‘lens camera‘ has yet to be officially announced but a steady stream of leaks have been popping up for the last month or so. The peripheral is expected be unveiled tomorrow (Sept. 4) at IFA in Berlin, along with Sony’s much-anticipated Xperia Z1 Honami. But today an ad for the new camera leaked, showing the QX100 and lower end QX10 lens camera’s in action.  Check it out below!

The ad shows a chipper fellow making strolling and flirting through his day, finding great photo ops along the way. The ad shows off the easy coupling and uncoupling of the camera with a smart phone, using a simple NFC bump. The accompanying camera app looks great too, with several editing features available at a touch. The higher end Qx100 model is mostly showcased, as the scruffy protagonist documents his day. But the sleeker QX10 makes an appearance as well, sporting its own special case.

Sony’s lens camera attachment will come in two flavors. The lower end QX10 will feature a 10x zoom f/3.3-5.9 lens with a 1/2.3 inch 18-megapixel CMOS sensor. This is on par with modern consumer point and shoots, and smart camera’s like Samsung’s Galaxy Camera.

The higher end QX100 is really something special, however. It will sport the same sensor as Sony’s excellent  RX100 Mark II. As previously reported, the high-end accessory will feature a 1-inch 20.2-megapixel Exmor R sensor and an f/1.8 Carl Zeiss lens. This will add some serious power to your smartphone photography, and essentially put a high-end, prosumer camera in your pocket.

Both devices have a power button, microphone and display panel, with the DSCQX10 touting a microSD and battery indicator as well as a tripod mount, shutter button and a zoom lever.

While the leak of this video might have stolen a little of Sony‘s thunder for tomorrow’s event, it’s great to see the Qx100 and QX10 in action. I still don’t see a big market for these products, but I’ll be darned if they aren’t cool! We’ll find out the pricing tomorrow, but the rumor mill has suggested that the QX100 could be going for $450 and its lower end counterpart at $250.
