Oppo ‘Smart Lens’ leaks in new photos

Oppo Smart Lens

Remember Sony’s intriguing line of QX lenses with built-in cameras? While the products remained fairly niche, there’s no doubt that Sony was onto something. Now it appears that Oppo is trying its hand at the same idea. Some leaked images out of China has revealed the Oppo Smart Lens, which appears to attach to a device with a built in clip and connect to it using NFC, similar to Sony’s products.

Specs-wise, the lens appears to have 10x optical zoom capabilities as well as a built-in battery. Not much else is known about the camera, but we can’t imagine that it would be low-end. There’s also not much known about the Smart Lens’ compatibility, but if Oppo continues to follow Sony’s example, it should be compatible with more than just Oppo’s phones. We’ll have to wait and see how it all pans out, but this could be an exciting product.

Does the idea of an external camera and lens on your phone appeal to you?

      This IS a real camera, just with a better display and with the option of sharing photos directly to any social network.

    Well, since your question is an user-opinion poll (in essence), I would not get it based on three basic thoughts:
    1) I already have a great camera that I don’t take everywhere because of bulk.
    2) This would be just one more thing to lug around (I may as well carry my camera).
    3) There is a saying that the “best camera is the one you have with you.” Since I wouldn’t carry that lens on me, it would be relegated to the same place my DSLR is–in the closet waiting for my next real photo excursion.

    [New Game] Cinemaware’s Amiga Classic Defender Of The Crown Invades The Android App
    According to Android App Defender of the Crown was an oddity when it debuted in 1986: a highly-polished game with impressive visual presentation (for the time), but one that didn’t fit into any established genre. Civilization players of today might recognize a sort of proto-strategy in the slightly fantastic Medieval England setting, where you raise an army and conquer Britain in bits and pieces. But the actual gameplay requires real player interaction with the pre-rendered background, including various forms of fighting, jousting, and management.
    Now you can try Defender of the Crown out for yourself, without having to dust off the old Commodore or load up a DOS emulator. The original publisher Cinemaware has ported the game to Android and put it up for one and all, with a reasonable $2 entry fee. (Fans will recognize one of Cinemaware’s later games, The King of Chicago, also recently ported to Android.) Aside from the new touch interface, the game looks pretty much identical to the first release almost twenty years ago, unfortunately including the aspect ratio.
    At its heart this is a role-playing game, though there’s also liberal amounts of strategy thrown in, particularly in how you spend money and assign forces in your territory. Arcade segments give short bursts of skill-based play, augmented by your choice of character and their strengths and weaknesses. If you’re unsure of how to proceed – these old PC games can be pretty obtuse – the full manual for Defender of the Crown is included in the Android version.
