The camera is better for planned outings than capturing spontaneous moments
3 March 2015
Summary: Portable powered zoom lens, for getting those far away shots, and photos are clear. Tri-pod leg broke off during first field use. Startup takes a while so the camera is better for planned outings than capturing spontaneous moments.
Excerpt: It is listed as compatible with SELP1650 lens, but it is tight when both caps are attached. It fits but it is very tight, and cannot be used when any filter is installed on the lens. Otherwise it is very high quality. It is mainly intended for DSC-QX10, so I'm giving it 4 stars.
Summary: The camera quality seemed rather poor for a 18MP camera, the focusing ability was quite bad, and the wifi connection to my smartphone was buggy, slow, and aggravating. I hated this camera, and am returning it.
Summary: I believe Sony stopped short of making a great accessory for smart phones and tablets. My biggest complaint is that they provide an 18MP sensor and then dumb it down to 5MP compressed jpg. Let the user decide how big the image should be.
