I first really took a look into the QX10 just last week. After some YouTube research, I had to have one. I am very satisfied with the quality of the pictures and the lens camera itself so far. Great pictures and a great idea. This device clearly is not made for the quick "pull out of you pocket" camera shoot, but it is great for a quick setup and pulling in of a great picture without lugging around a lot of extra stuff. I have used the lens with 2 different cell phones and a tablet. The interface is a problem. PlayMemories is still buggy as of March 21, 2014. The program often hangs up on my Samsung S4 requiring a forced shut down. The NFC connection more often than not does not work. Straight WiFi connection is also a little slow. The interface really needs to be fixed and reliable. This is the only reason I can not give a full 5 stars. The interface also has me considering returning the lens. The QX10 is a great toy, but if I can not use it, why keep it.

I really love this camera as a great companion to my iPhone for specific occasions. It is a very interesting concept, I love the zooming capabilities and image quality. The unfortunate problem is with the playmemories software which is very incomplete in terms of functionalities and buggy and unreliable, at least on iOS 7. I hope Sony with provide an update to the software very soon which will make this new camera concept really great and more usable.

Great camera addition to my iPhone 6 Plus

Comments about Sony Black Smartphone Lens Digital Camera:

Great little camera that adds zoom capability to your smart phone in a little package. Smart to put a tripod mount for stand alone shooting.

For special situations only

By 

from 21811

Comments about Sony Black Smartphone Lens Digital Camera:

The camera is very useful for shooting images from restricted or otherwise awkward angles or for getting candid shots of people who don't like their photos taken. It can't be used on an iPhone 6 Plus unless you remove any protective cover you're using and then is no better than carrying a real camera. If not used on a tripod (small, of course) or placed on a table, it's hard to line up with the subject, particularly if shooting down at a magazine or paper. At least I have problems coordinating that kind of shot, maybe it's just me?

Upgrade Your Smartphone Camera

By

Comments about Sony Black Smartphone Lens Digital Camera:

My iPhone provides great photographs on-the-go, but it doesn't provide the capabilities for serious photography or video recording. Enter the Sony DSC-QX10! It mates perfectly with my iPhone while still in it's case, it provides a 10x optical zoom, a low-light shooting sensor, optical stabilization, 18.9 megapixel photographs, 1080p/30 video recording, and a tripod mount! The only thing that could be better is the wireless integration: perhaps it could utilize Bluetooth in addition to WiFi.

Great Camera

By

Comments about Sony Black Smartphone Lens Digital Camera:

I was impressed as to how much better my iPhone pics could be taken with this camera. The fun of being able to control the camera in group pics was a vacation fun saver!! Unfortunately i now have the iPhone 6+ and the camera doesn't fit. If Sony could make an adopter for it, it will be perfect!

Novel idea - a little too cumbersome experience

By 

from Plano, TX

Comments about Sony Black Smartphone Lens Digital Camera:

I bought this when I first looked at the design. It is a fantastic concept except when it comes to actual execution, it is a little too cumbersome. Firstly, the pairing was simple, but every time you need to use the lens, you need to disconnect from your house wifi and connect to the sony wifi and even though the attachment is pretty well designed, it gives you an impression of toppling. To add, I have a 8 digit passcode that locks the i-phone every 30 seconds (company policy) which made the whole operation too complicated. It took me a good 2 - 3 minutes to get the camera up and running and for a $199 - I can get a comparable compact camera that can do the same job without the hassles. The picture quality was certainly not SLR and is comparable to a compact camera. Again, some of these are attributable to my phone and my situation, and in all honesty, I bought this only because I liked the concept. But I think when it actually comes to reality, it is a little different and unless some improvements are made, I am not attempting at this again. I returned mine after a week for a full refund.

Fantastic Product

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Black Smartphone Lens Digital Camera:

Very cool! Sony is remains the world's best electrons company. The iPhone attachment is different from a handheld camera, though once familiar with its operation you can achieve remarkable results. This attachment operates also as a remote system so it can be used as a security monitor and can be operated from a tablet. Best that the purchaser understand complex cameras.

Great if you can use it

By 

from Kirksville, MO 63501, USA

Comments about Sony Black Smartphone Lens Digital Camera:

The camera is amazing and fun to use. As a professional photographer, my only wish is that it could shoot RAW.... and I wish the remote interface software was more reliable. When shooting video, it is pretty common for the camera and phone to lose connection. I still love it though.
