Pre-order new Sony QX1 APS-C Smartphone Add-On (and QX30 30x zoom and Action Mini)

Sony had a loaded IFA 2014 presentation today, launching new products left and right, trying to recapture old glory. Of photography interest, the new QX1 is a 20mp APS-C sensor-module with RAW capture that attaches to your smartphone and takes Sony Alpha lenses. It is officially compatible with 50+ lenses and it is available for pre-order for $400 at Amazon with a mid-October release estimate.

Joining the smartphone add-on modules is the new QX30, which *spoiler alert* as its name hints, has a 30x optical zoom. Yes, a 30x optical zoom glued to your smartphone. After all, none of the major smartphones have ventured into optical zoom lenses. With emphasis on slim designs, the chances of native optical zoom lenses are not that high. The new QX30 is available for pre-order for $350 at Amazon with an early October release estimate.

Last but not least, they have a new Action Cam Mini, splashproof, and as the Mini indicates in the name, the smallest so far in the Sony line-up. This actionable wearable is available for pre-order for $250 at Amazon or for $350 in a Live View Remote Bundle. Release estimate is mid-to-late October 2014.

Refurbished Nokia Lumia 1020 cameraphone for $300 (no contract)

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is one of the PureView cameraphones, made by Nokia before the Microsoft purchase, and is one of the well thought of camera-phones. If interested, and don't want to sign up for a two year contract, one of the latest eBay deals have the seller refurbished Nokia Lumia 1020 in either the iconic yellow or black or white body color schemes for $300 with free shipping. This is sold by eBay seller Deal.Fisher who has been around for a while, so it is a lower risk than seller-refurbished from totally random seller. Still, seller-refurbished is a higher-risk purchase than manufacturer-refurbished, so if you are risk-averse, keep that in mind. Deal.Fisher offers a 90 day warranty of their own. The phone is locked to AT&T, but this is a no-contract purchase. You can use it as a Wifi-only device if you like or add it to an add plan. With Nokia as we knew it getting sunset by Microsoft, the last few rounds of Nokia phones may become of "historical" interest to some :) One more thing, this is a Windows Phone OS phone.
