Just like on a phone, It took a photo and edited it on the camera. The concept is a smartphone shared camera maybe a favorite of those who love photography on Android‌.

The name Zeiss ZX is associated with professional cameras, the new generation may not have heard the name. However, on some smartphones, may have seen that name on the camera lens. The reason why the lens of smartphone cameras gets the size nomenclature is because of the leadership in film photography. And size for digital cameras, the lenses are coming down‌. But because they are more expensive in the field of optics, lenses are not used by many.  Zeiss is a German company synonymous with perfection in construction. Zeiss announced in September 2018 that they were in the process of building a camera. Right now has been released under the name Zeiss ZX1.
