Alice Camera – an attempt to turn a smartphone into a camera with a removable lens

It is based on an 11MP Four Thirds image sensor with 4.63 µm pixels and HDR support. It works in conjunction with an interchangeable lens that is installed as standard on the Micro Four Thirds mount. This can be a Micro Four Thirds lens or a lens of another system mounted through an adapter.

According to the developers of the device, Photogram, they managed to create a camera that, they said, “combines the quality of the Micro Four Thirds photo system with the artificial intelligence of a smartphone”.

Alice Camera does not have its own screen and is attached to your smartphone, whose screen is used to change settings and preview images. Connection is made via Wi-Fi. The smartphone, more precisely, the complete application is also responsible for exposure metering, work with color, digital image stabilization and automatic focusing – all these functions work on algorithms AI.

For storage of footage is used memory card format microSD. In addition, the images can be immediately transferred to your smartphone for editing before being published on the Internet. The camera will be able to record 4K video at 30 fps or FullHD at 60 fps. It is also possible to broadcast live using a smartphone network connection.

Note that this camera is still at the prototype stage, but preliminary orders are already being accepted, and next month the Indiegogo fundraising campaign should start. The full price of the Alice Camera will be 750 pounds sterling, but with a pre-order or participation in a fundraiser the camera will cost the buyer noticeably cheaper. It is expected that shipment of cameras will begin in March 2021.
