Olympus announces their first attachable smartphone camera lenses

If your love for pictures and smartphones goes hand in hand you are going to love the new attachable camera lenses from Olympus.

If you are one of the few who took notice when Sony last year announced their  DSC-QX100 you are going to love the that Olympus now is going to give them some competition. Olympus is no newcomer to making cameras and camera equipment so we are hoping this is going to be a product that raises the bar for these kind of attachables.

These camera add ons does not use any physical connector to transfer data back and forth to your phone. It does connect to your phone through a mecanism that holds the two together. The actual exchange of data is done through the use of bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

The lenses are actually fully working cameras, but without first connecting it to a smartphone you will not be able to see what you are shooting until you download the images to a computer which has a screen.

The attachments does come with its own shutter buttons so you could take photos without pairing it with your phone If you wanted to. Just don’t be surprised to find you cut the motive in half.

The attachment is set for a march 6th release in Japan. There has been no word on availability in the rest of the world jet, but we suspect Olympus did not put a time and money into developing this for it to be sold in just a small portion of the world. Lets hope we will see this exciting product in a store shelf before years end.
