it was a good deal


from North York, ON M3M, Canada

Comments about Hanover Sony Smartphone Attachable Lens-Style Camera:

I got a good deal on this camera as the Sony store was closing here in Toronto and so far it works great with my iphone and i can use it remotely i only paid 299.99 for it because the store was closing


Great quality!


from YYC

Comments about Hanover Sony Smartphone Attachable Lens-Style Camera:

It has a good quality lens, a larger sized sensor(compare to normal point and shot camera or QX10/QX30), as well as giving you a higher ISO range (easy for indoor or night time photo shooting), Thanks to the F1.8 and Superior Auto Mode, the DOF on this thing is amazing. Only thing bugs me is when you using a iphone, the wifi direct pairing is kind annoying! Also, sometimes the live view is laggy!

DSC-QX100 needs further improvement


from Whitby, ON, Canada

Comments about Hanover Sony Smartphone Attachable Lens-Style Camera:

There should be a caveat for this device - it is so fragile. The round frame that holds the whole mechanism is not sturdy enough to withstand minor pressure. The control ring to zoom in/out will not manually work and will get stuck due to deformed tin-can-like quality support frame. Zoom in/out works with the App but not physically. Sony must change the accessory instead of Soft Carrying Case for QX Series Camera (LCSBBL) to a "Hard" case. I have bought this device and you cannot be careless to put this in your carry on bag and forget about it, accidentally sit on it or worst put it in your check-in luggage ... as even if is under the 1-year warranty, physical damage is not covered. Had to beg and renegotiate my repair fees from $292.34 to $217 finally down to $200 + tax when it is supposed to be free! Extended warranty will not help as it is hard to convince the reps if there are scratches already. For that hefty amount of repair you are better off waiting for the QX1 already with the starter E-lens.
