Sony QX100 and QX10 Hands-on Previews and Reports [available for pre-order again!]
The new Sony QX100 and QX10 Lens-Sensor-Smartphone-Modules have now materialized and the hands-on reports have began rolling out! Is Sony on a roll and on the path of being cool again? Just a few days ago they generated curiosity-interest with the DSLR-styled a3000 mirrorless camera. Now they are jumping squarely into one of the hottest (if not the hottest) segments of technology. Smartphone love is at an all time high world wide at the moment! Will this be the first "serious" camera most people of the touch-screen generation buy?
Sony QX100 and QX10 Hands-on Reports & Previews
Cry fans of RAW, cry tears of anger! No RAW on this even though it has a nice 1-inch sensor! A four page hands-on report is out at dpreview along with a first look at dpreview.connect() and an opinion on this annie at dpreview.connect().
ePhotozine is in, they have hands-on reports with both the QX100 sensor-lens-4-smartphone and with the QX10 sensor-lens-4-smartphone. Perhaps it is no coincidence that the QX100 rhymes with RX100 :) Lots of body pictures!
Lots of sensor-lens-4-smartphone body pictures of both the QX100 and QX10 at Photography Blog.
