Sony QX100 and QX10 lens cameras leaked manual

The owners manual for Sony’s yet-to-be-announced line of lens cameras has just leaked, as discovered by the boys at SonyAlphaRumors. You might remember these camera attachments from a previous leak where we got to see some promotional images for Sony’s new devices. Today, we have a little more info on exactly what all the buttons on these devices will do, giving us an overview on all the hardware functions.

As a refresher, the Sony QX100 is the more higher-end model of the 2, packing the same sensor and Carl Zeiss glass as found on the Sony’s RX100M2. The QX10 (the smaller of the bunch) is a little more portable, but comes at a lack of performance, using the same sensor and lens as found on Sony’s WX150 point-n-shoot budget camera.

These devices are expected to be officially announced at Sony’s September 4th event being held in New York. The most pressing question everyone really wants to know is how expensive something like this might cost (I’m keeping my fingers crossed at $300 – $400). How ’bout you?
