Sony Cyber-shot QX10 review: a WiFi 'lens camera' that mounts directly on your smartphone

 

Earlier this month at IFA, Sony introduced an entirely new type of point-and-shoot camera. The QX10 and its big brother, the QX100, are missing a built-in LCD...

Seamless smartphone integration ; Good image quality ; Reasonably priced

Noticeable preview lag ; Limited manual control ; Mediocre battery life

We were admittedly hesitant when we first heard about Sony's new lens cameras, and we weren't even convinced after an extended hands-on earlier this month. But after spending a full week with the QX10, including shoots in Berlin and Alaska, it's hard...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX10

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX10 is an add-on lens for use with smartphones. It's an example of a risky, forward-thinking concept, but some issues prevent us from recommending it.

Sharp lens. 10x zoom range. Compact. On-camera shutter and zoom controls. Wi-Fi with NFC. iOS and Android compatibility.

Image noise at moderate ISO settings. Live view feed can lag. Shutter lag when triggering from phone. Takes time to mount to phone. Slow startup compared to a standalone camera. No support for Windows Phone.

The Live View feed was generally smooth, but there were occasions when it slowed down. This was especially case when trying to frame up a shot with a lot of detail; bare branches against a blue sky consistently caused a stuttering slowdown. It wasn't...

Sony Cyber-shot QX10 a cool gadget, but not a real solution

 

Basically a point-and-shoot without a screen and almost no physical controls, this Wi-Fi-enabled lens camera aims to enhance your mobile photography. Mostly, though, it's just a pain.

The ; 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 support.

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.

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

A camera for your cameraphone: Sony Cyber-shot QX10 and QX100 review

 

Celebrity sightings are a rite of passage in New York City, and there are famous people everywhere. Yet in all my time here, the best I'd done was the empty Gotham PD cars strewn all over Wall Street between Dark Knight takes. But in the last two...

Small and pocketable ; Takes better pictures than your smartphone

Slow, clumsy connections ; Too little manual control ; PlayMemories app can't do very much

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 Cyber-shot DSC-QX10 Review

 

It's not often that we review something completely different to the norm, but the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX10 definitely fits that description. The Sony QX10 is officially called a “lens-sensor module”, and it's designed to be the perfect partner for...

Trying to evaluate the unique Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX10 has proved to be very difficult. On one hand, it's a dumbed-down, over-priced point and shoot camera that has some intrinsic performance issues. On the other, it's an innovative way for smartphone...

Sony QX10 Review

 

It doesn't matter which model you choose, almost all digital cameras have a defining feature: they all place their lens on the front of -- or perhaps inside of -- a camera body that adds bulk.

Overall the QX10 generated some nice photos under the right conditions, and the zoom was useful to have compared with using a phone on its own. However we struggle to see who would buy this device. The RRP is £179 although at the time of this review...
