Great Idea, Maybe Overkill

  • Summary: I think you have to be a major photo enthusiast to buy this. That may seem obvious based on the price, but I'm not really a photo enthusiast and my point is that if you take photos, sometimes wanting them to look really good, with your iPhone, it's hard to see why this is worth occasionally lugging out. Then again, if you are photo enthusiast, this thing may be child's play, unless it is one of many things in your arsenal.

Easy to carry, works for quick shots.

  • Summary: Excellent camera attachment for my phone. It's definitely better than all the cheap accessories out there, but it's easy to carry in my purse and use it if I don't want to carry my bigger cameras around. I have no complaints about this device. 5 Stars!

Works fairly well, although the Sony app could use some improvement

  • Summary: I tested out the Sony DSC-QX100, which is an interesting concept, as it acts a separate zoom lens for your phone. It was fairly easy to set up. The lens has a built-in wireless SSID in it, so you just connect your phone to it. Your phone should see it as an available wireless network and allow you to connect. Once you have set it up once, your phone can automatically connect to it whenever you turn the lens on.

Great pictures on my cell phone...but just too awkward for regular use. QX10 has a much better zoom than QX100

  • Summary: I have the QX100 and Qx10 both. Amazon is putting the reviews together so I will give the info for both in my reviews. The QX100 is bigger and has many more options. Interestingly, the software on my phone knows the difference and the extra options on the Qx100 are just there. I use this with the Samsung Note 3. I have a very thin phone case but the brackets are just a bit too small. I have to take the phone out of the case and it just barely fits.

QX-100: A Missed Opportunity for the Price

Ryan Winkleman, Amazon

  • Summary: The Sony DSC-QX100 runs, as of this writing, for $500 on Amazon. Is it worth that cost? Well, I kind of doubt it, but that's up to you to decide, so here are my impressions. The DSC-QX100 (QX100 from this point on...) is really a great camera for macro shots. As advertised, the macro pictures are just plain beautiful. It doesn't usually have any problems focusing on close objects (within reason..

Perfect to Take Mobile Photography to the Next Level

Kirsten Mitson "www.visible-images.com", Amazon

  • Summary: For mobile enthusiasts this takes photography with a smartphone to the next level. With ability to control aperture from f/1.8 to 11 manually, as well as exposure, and the ability to save a full size image on the memory card while simultaneously saving a shareable size image to the smartphone device that is attached, this nearly makes a dSLR pointless if you're a hobbyist photographer only and not needing to sell or supply images at a professional level.

FIne for what it is

hodge001, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm a hobbyist, not a serious photographer. So this seemed like a good, compact and practical way to pump up my Samsung phone camera. When you get it set up, the pics are fine. But when I tried to take movie clips with the camera detached from the phone, I couldn't tell when I was inadvertently tilting it, and consequently getting clips shot at all sorts of weird angles.

Quite good and useful

Bass Cadet, Amazon

  • Summary: Although not for everyone, this camera does have its use. I see it more applicable for DSLR users who don't want to take their full kit everywhere they go. This allows these people the ability to take decent photos and video (sans sound) wherever they take their smartphone or portable device. I get what Sony is attempting to do with this camera and think that it is a great idea.
