  • Summary: 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.

Sony Cyber-shot QX100 review

Pocket Lint
23 January 2014
  • Conclusion: 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 to stuff away when connected.
  • Pros: Good low light performance, aperture control, manual focus option, great results
  • Cons: Some connection problems with PlayMemories app, lack of control, no ISO adjustment, lack of information, price, bulky

28 November 2013
  • Summary: A few weeks back we’d talked about Sony’s spanking new smart lens accessory that complements your phone and gives it a camera that is a notch or two above what is possible with the inbuilt module. While the QX10 was pretty amazing in itself, the QX100 takes the concept to yet another level.
