Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-QX10


You have to give Sony credit for trying something new to stem declining point-and-shoot sales.

The Sony Cyber-shot QX10 at its core is a good point-and-shoot camera with photo quality that's better than you'd get with most smartphones. Connects easily with Android devices with NFC. Available platform-agnostic API allows app developers to add...

The camera has a very limited feature set compared with a regular point-and-shoot; Sony's mobile app has few features; extended shooting drains your smartphone's battery; and its shooting performance can be extremely frustrating.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX10 might be a fresh take on a point-and-shoot camera, but the design ends up being a bit more trouble than it's worth.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX10 Lens-style Camera Preview


If you love your Apple or Android smartphone, but aren't impressed with its photo (or video) quality, you might want to consider picking up one of Sony's two newly announced "lens-style" QX-series digicams.

Sony fans


I have 12MP camera built-in my smart phone, I bought this because it's price matched ($169.99) + reward cert + gift cards; I only paid $112.41 + a free photo book and it has 18MP with zoom in. Videos and photos quality are good. It is easier to bring...

18MP attached most smart phone

a little slow when you capture a photo

Great pictures!


Easy to use. Price is reasonable. Everyone is amazed by it.About me... for work

Pictures are sharper than my phone

Alittle heavy when attached to my phone

Consumer review by:

Great zoom and picture quality.


If the iPhone app had manual control and was a bit quicker to respond, then this would be a fantastic camera. It's great for when you have a shot that your phone just can't get for lack of good optical zoom.

Gives you a good option for when you need zoom but want the images on your smartphone now

No manual functions

Its a great lense to add to compliment your phone for better pictures. Most people complain of lack of flash, but have had no use for flash yet as takes great low light pictures
