Sony QX100


Hands-on: Turn your mobile into a high-end camera with the QX100

The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-QX100 is an odd camera, and it takes a bit of getting used to – clamping a chunky 180g weight on your phone feels plain weird. However, it has the specs to suggest it’ll take cracking photos. Will it convert photographers by the...

Sony QX100 review


Is the Sony QX100 enough to replace your standard smartphone camera?

Simple to use ; Very good images ; Great for group shots

Very expensive ; Slow to use ; Limited battery life

Sony Cyber-shot QX100 review


Sony did something a little radical in 2013, launching the lens-style camera accessories for smartphones. With two models on offer - the QX10 and the QX100 - the idea is to bring quality to your smartphone photos that would be otherwise be impossible...

Good low light performance, aperture control, manual focus option, great results

Some connection problems with PlayMemories app, lack of control, no ISO adjustment, lack of information, price, bulky

The more we used the QX100, the more apparent the difference from the QX10 became. Once connected to a phone, the QX100 is difficult to get into your pocket. Even with a big jacket pocket, attached to a big phone like the HTC One, it was just too big...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX100 review


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX10 and QX100 are more than just mobile-phone ‘accessories'. The QX10 will appeal to many consumers as a replacement for a compact camera. Being small and light, it is the perfect accompaniment to a smartphone.Although the...

Sony QX100 Review


If you enjoy taking photos on your smartphone, these unique QX cameras will offer you more flexibility, however the amount of use they get will come down to how desperate you are for better image quality. If the slow setup speeds, time lag over the...

Not-So-Sure Shot


If you could guarantee your phone had the biggest camera sensor, the best lens, and deeper controls than anything else out there for the next few years, that'd be a good thing, yes? And if this super camera happened to be detachable, letting you use it...

The photos look great. It’ll do a much better job than your phone, especially in low light. Creative potential abounds if you use it as a disembodied lens for your phone. Around half the price of the RX100 II, which has the same sensor, lens, and image...

You might as well get a good compact camera with Wi-Fi controls instead. Just because it’s small doesn’t mean it’s pocket-friendly. Wi-Fi connection with a phone only works smoothly when the two devices are next to one another. The process of attaching...
