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

 

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

Sony ILCE-QX1

 

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...

Sony ILCE-QX1 Review

 

Sony's QX range of cameras offers something pretty distinct in the marketplace at the moment. While we've been able to use cameras with smartphones and tablets for some time, it's not often that you find a camera that relies entirely on another device...

Once again, Sony has produced something innovative and interesting for the camera market with the ILCE-QX1. But it might be a case of solving a problem that doesn’t really exist.

Sony QX1 Review

 

Gone, perhaps, are the days of often-chunky cases with snap-on or magnetically-attached mini lenses or novelty accessories that let you put DSLR lenses on the back of your smartphone. Photographers looking for the flexibility of interchangeable lenses,...

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...

Sony QX1 review

 

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