Sony Cybershot DSC-QX100
The Cyber-shot QX100 is essentially a point and shoot camera without a viewfinder, designed to be paired with a smartphone over Wi-Fi and NFC. The accessories are complete camera units that come with a sensor, shutter and zoom controls, a microSD card slot, and internal battery, allowing you to snap higher quality photos than what would be allowed from your regular smartphone camera. The QX100 is the higher-end of the two models, packing a 1" 20.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, Carl Zeiss optics with 3.6x optical zoom, Bionz image processor, and manual controls for focus and zoom.
Great for inconspicuous shots.
Great image quality.
Lag experienced when shooting fast moving subjects.
Slow to connect.
No raw support.

The QX100 is a compelling tech demonstration but the size and lack of accompanying software capabilities really puts us off. The portability question is a bigger issue here than on the QX10 that was diminutive enough to slip into a pocket. The large...-
