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...

Sony QX1 verdict Open Gallery As we said earlier, we find the Sony QX1 to be a bit of an oddity, and we're not quite sure who it's aimed at. Existing enthusiasts will likely find themselves annoyed at the awkwardness of having to pair it with a...

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

And now, like a gift from a parallel universe, there's a new Sony product with pure sass coursing through its veins. The Sony ILCE-QX1 is a follow-up to last year's QX10 and QX100 smartphone-mountable cameras, and this one has—get this—an interchangeable...

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 - the new lenses will connect to your smartphone. The idea is to give you a high quality sensor with...

Sony's QX100 and QX10 introduced a new concept in digital cameras. They look like lenses you fit on to a camera body, but they actually have a sensor built in. They're designed to attach to your smartphone and communicate with it wirelessly, so that the...

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...

Now, I already had a vague inkling that Japan's most adventurous tech company would have some interesting announcements at IFA 2014. Sony has done the unthinkable, though — shoe-horned a relatively massive APS-C imaging sensor into one of its cut-down...

International Review By Alt om DATA on 80

Smartphones har nu engang nogle begrænsninger, når det kommer til at tage billeder. Sonys løsning på dette er de små QX-kameraer, der sættes på mobilen for at tilføre den manglende kamerateknik, der skal til for at levere billeder af høj klasse. En stor...

Sonys unikke kamera giver muligheder, som ingen andre kameraer har, men det passer ikke til alle. Da det ikke har nogen skærm, er man afhængig af telefonen for at kunne betjene objektivkameraet. Selv om der er zoomknap på objektivet, indbygget blitz og...

Sonys unika kamera ger möjligheter som inga andra har, men den passar inte alla. Eftersom den inte har någon skärm är man beroende av att mobilen är påslagen för att kunna sköta objektivkameran. Även om det finns en zoomknapp på objektivet, inbyggd blixt...

International Review By Das Digitalkamera-Magazin on 80

Die bisher vorgestellten QX-Module von Sony besaßen Bildsensoren im 1/2,3-Zoll und im 1-Zoll-Format. Mit der Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX1 (Datenblatt) ist nun auch ein Modell mit APS-C-Sensor (23,2 x 15,4mm) erhältlich. Der Exmor-CMOS-Sensor löst 19,8...

Sonys unike kamera åpner for muligheter ingen andre kameraer har, men det passer ikke alle. Siden det ikke har skjerm er man avhengig av å ha mobilen på for å kunne betjene objektivkameraet. Selv om det finnes en zoomknapp på objektivet, innebygget blits...

Det ligner et objektiv, men er i virkeligheden et kamera. QX1 er topmodel i Sonys skærmløse serie, der kan bruges med en smartphone. Trods en stor sensor er det dog svært at blive...

Sony Alpha QX1 è una vera e propria fotocamera autonoma. Questo va chiarito subito. Probabilmente l'avete sempre vista collegata a qualche smartphone perché, altrimenti, è priva di schermo, ma resta una camera che volendo può fare tutto da sola....

Die Sony QX1 ist ein geniales Gadget für den ambitionierten Smartphone-Fotografen. Die Bilder sind qualitativ besser als jede Kamera, die in einem Smartphone eingebaut ist. Außerdem lässt sich die Qualität noch weiter steigern, da Ihr dank des...

International Review By DinSide Data on 50

Det er lenge siden jeg har testet et produkt der folk flokker seg rundt på samme måte som på QX1 – dette er definitivt noe mange synes er veldig hi-tech. Selv om ideen er morsom, er vi usikre på om QX1 egentlig fyller noen behov. Mange systemkameraer...

International Review By Les Numériques on 60

Le Sony QX1 est à la fois un exercice technologique, photographique et, métaphysique. Quel que soit l'angle par lequel vous l'abordez, les questions se succèdent : pour quoi faire ? Comment l'utiliser ? Quelle utilité ? Que m'apporte-t-il de plus qu'un...

Долгое время любителям качественной фотографии приходилось покупать себе дорогостоящее и громоздкое оборудование. Камеры в мобильных телефонах и смартфонах, несмотря на значительное развитие, не могли конкурировать с зеркальной фототехникой даже...
