Sony SPA-TA1: Turn tablets in giant cameras

Sony camera for tablets

Sony SPA-TA1

After releasing its camera-lens-like camera for smartphones, Sony is at it again. This time, the company is launching the SPA-TA1, a clip-on attachment that gives your tablet some serious camera power.

The Sony SPA-TA1 is not a camera or lens, but actually a clip-on attachment that can be adjusted to fit Sony’s lens-type cameras onto a tablet. It comes in six arm sizes, which can accommodate devices from 85 to 190 millimeters in width. (Basically all of Sony’s tablets and phablets.)

The actual cameras are the same as what Sony offered for smartphones: the DCS-QX100 features a high-zoom model for $249, while the premium DSC-QX10 costs $499.

The Sony SPA-TA1 will be available beginning April 4 in Japan, with a suggested retail price of 3,675 yen ($36).
