Sony QX1 review

 

An add-on that makes your smartphone shoot like a DSLR? Snap it up! If you have the lenses to get going, that is..

Small and sturdy ; Hassle-free pairing with NFC phones ; DSLR photo quality

Can be awkward in your hand ; Little creative freedom with video ; Expensive when starting from scratch

A quirky and high-quality photo add-on for your phone but it’s hard to think of anybody who’d find the QX1 essential

Sony QX1 and QX30: Bringing real and interchangeable lenses to your smartphone (hands-on) - Pocket-lint

 

Sony has added two new lens-style cameras to the QX range at IFA 2014, the QX1 and QX30. Just like the QX10 and QX100 - launched at last year's IFA

Sony QX1 review

 

Use interchangeable lenses with your smartphone - sort of

Small size ; DSLR-sized sensor ; E mount sensor

No screen - need a smart device for composition ; Wi-Fi/NFC connection adds delay ; No grip on the body

Ratings in depth Sony's QX100 and QX10 digital cameras introduced a new and reasonably unusual concept into the market. They look like lenses that you would fit onto a camera body, but they actually have a sensor built in. They're designed to attach to...

We love the Smart Lens concept, but we just can't see who's going to buy a body-only QX1

Sony QX1 is a lens camera...without a lens

 

Now you can get a round, LCD-free version of the A5000.

Sony Alpha QX1 (ILCE-QX1) Review

 

We review the Sony Alpha QX1 - a small camera with interchangeable lenses that works with your smartphone.

20 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor ; Good noise performance ; Built-in flash ; Quite good value for money with lens ; 440 shot battery life ; Built-in tripod socket ; Wi-Fi and NFC ; MicroUSB charging

Wi-Fi connection not always easy to establish ; Slight delay in response to Wi-Fi app ; No filters, scene modes or panoramic shooting modes ; Focus not particularly quick

Connecting the QX1 to your smartphone delays the photo taking process, but does speed up the process of transferring images to your smartphone. Image quality delivered is on a par with Digital SLRs, and other mirrorless cameras, and there is a very...

Sony has announced two new "lens-style" cameras. In an era of ubiquitous smartphone cameras, there an infinite number of photography opportunities... limited by the often-way-too-small images sensors (and no optical zoom capabilities). Enter lens-style...
