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 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...

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 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...

Inklusive Standardzoom misst die Sony ILCEQX1 gerade mal acht Zentimeter - wir zeigen sie links in Originalgröße. Dank E-Mount-Anschluss bietet sie eine Menge Spielmöglichkeiten, den meisten Charme hat sie mit dem kleinen 16-50 mm. Der integrierte...
