ZJ24: I wonder if there are any plans to offer larger sensor sizes - the idea of connectable cameras is an interesting one.

That said, a lot of smartphone cameras are good anyway in decent light. I would have thought the big advantage of connectivity would be if you could have a higher ISO image with less noise (please no-one reply with SuperRaw stacking information, get that, very useful "sport" ISO ability if nothing at all is moving).

By larger I mean say 4/3 in this context (where the existing sensor is 1".

Thanks for that info. Like I said, I'm interested but wifi is the solution, not connectors.

The Oly doesn't hang off the front of your phone, its held in a cradle simply as the control interface = same basic idea for both formats though. The DXO interface looks very intuitive. Not sure about lag times but it's worth noting.

I'm intruiged with the concept but think I'll sit out this round. Oly still has a trick up their sleeve thats hard to trump if they persue this format - IBIS. Good to have options for sure...

@demarcuswood
Why the breakable wizbang connector? I mean really, thats how you secure a cellphone to the camera module - looks like TROUBLE TROUBLE TROUBLE
psssst "wifi"
If I'm going to the trouble of carrying extra gear anyway why yours?
It would appear the Olympus Air01 does this trick even better and for much less with zoom...
Besides, I'm Android - I am serious though - the connector looks like trouble. I am interested in this gear and would have bought an Oly Air on Good Friday, but there were no sales. Then I stumbled across this.
