Sony QX100 with an iPhone. Yup! I think my excitement is palpable here… ;) This is the ‪Sony DSC-QX100 Smartphone Attachable Lens-style Camera‬ . It officially releases to the public at the end of this month in limited quantities but I was fortunate to get my hands on one. I have only been playing around with it for the last few hours and I am basically in love with this device. The image quality is insanely good since it has a 20 MP sensor with a Zeiss f/1.8 lens attached. I plan on taking tons of photos with it all over NYC this week. For the curious, there is another version of this device called the Sony QX10 Smartphone Attachable Camera which has a different lens and sensor and ships at a lower price) If you haven’t heard of this device yet, it’s a lens and sensor all in one that you can literally control with your smartphone. It’s also device agnostic and works on most Android and iOS devices which is how I am using it with my iPhone here. There is an attachment that allows you to put it on the back of your phone but you can also hold it like this or at different angles and you can even put it on a tripod or sit it down while using your phone to take photos with it. You also have an option of sharing photos you take with this to your phone’s library for easy sharing to Instagram, Facebook, or wherever or you can share directly to Twitter via the interface. I plan on writing a lengthy post about the QX100 this week including screenshots of the interface and more photos. I think this device has the potential to create a shift in the world of mobile photography. Exciting times! Update: Here are Sony QX100 photos taken from the top of the Empire State Building: Sony QX100 Photos Update 2: Here is my post about the QX100’s menus, interface, and shooting modes with screenshots: Sony QX100 Interface, Menus, Shooting Modes —- My photography portfolio, My Gear List, On G+,email me, or ask for help.
