First look summary from DPReview

DPReview First Look
What Sony's engineers have done in the QX100 is certainly bold. Repackaging the guts from a flagship point-and-shoot in a made-for-mobile device is an unprecedented move. It's also a bold approach to the problem of a camera's relative lack of connectivity - rather than fighting the smartphone, the QX100 joins the smartphone. Or rather is conjoined with it.

Personal takes

Allison Johnson Allison Johnson Reviewer
Consider that the QX100 also strips away a flash, AF assist lamp, manual focus aids and manual exposure control (aside from aperture control) and it's hard to imagine the enthusiast shooter who would be better served by this camera rather than a full-fledged compact.
Jeff Keller Jeff Keller Reviewer
The QX100 "camera unit" sounds great on paper, with its excellent sensor and lens. That said, it's quite bulky, making me wonder why someone wouldn't carry around a "regular" camera instead.

Reasons to buy

  • Enthusiast image quality on your phone: No smartphone camera can compete with the QX100's 1-inch, 20MP sensor, especially at higher sensitivities.
  • Simple sharing: Since you're controlling the camera with your smartphone, sending your photos onto social networking sites is as easy as you'll find.
  • Photo freedom: The QX100 doesn't have to be clamped onto your phone at all times. If you want to mount it on your dog or just take self-portraits, it's no problem.

Things to consider

  • Expensive: For a bit more money, you can buy the Sony RX100 II on which the QX100 is based. It's more compact and offers manual controls, higher quality video, and faster processing - and you can still send images to your smartphone.
  • Raw would be nice: While Sony has added more manual control to the QX100 since its initial release, you cannot shoot in Raw format, which would allow for fine-tuning image quality.
  • Flash-free: If your subject is heavily backlit or in the dark, then the lack of a built-in flash may be an issue.
Notable features
1-inch, 20MP BSI-CMOS sensor

Style Name: QX 10Configuration: BaseColor: Black
There are a lot of misconceptions about the new QX product... so I'll just give you my history.

I shoot professionally. I work in the field, out of my house at least half the month. I take a lot of gear with me. I already have an Sony DSC-RX100/B 20.2 MP Exmor CMOS Sensor Digital Camera with 3.6x Zoom, which I absolutely adore (and you won't find someone who doesn't love this camera), along with my DSLR gear. Why would I ever need ANOTHER? I didn't :) truth. BUT being on the road affords me the option to be able to share my images from around my territory. I am lucky in that I get to see a lot of desolation just waiting to be captured. Sometimes, though, there are angles I just can't get, things that I see that my DSLR and my RX100 simply aren't capable of reaching either because of obstacles in the way, size issues (my A99v is huge), etc...

Which is where the QX comes in. I simply do not ever attach this camera to my Samsung Galaxy S4. Ever. I see zero need for it and feel that it actually limits the camera's potential to do so. I have a WiFi signal! Put the damn camera where I damn well want to. Indispensable tool?Joby GPM-A1EN GorillaPod Magnetic Flexible Tripod (Black). A tool that allows me to stick the QX up light poles, traffic signals, car tops and sides, metal tables and chairs, the siding of an REI building, ladders, whatever allows those magnetic feet to work, man. Put the camera where you want it. Since the QX is blessed with a 1/4 20 tripod mount, it goes onto any 1/4 20 adapted product. I've seen them on boom poles, I've seen them on string.

Style Name: QX 100Configuration: BaseColor: Black
First off, I am a little annoyed that Amazon has chosen a format which is mixing the reviews of the QX10 and QX100 models together. In it's current format, shoppers looking for the Sony DSC-QX100 may be mislead by reading reviews of the cheaper QX10 model.

This preliminary review I am providing is for the Sony DSC-QX100.

As an owner of the Sony NEX-5N, NEX-6, and NEX-7 model cameras I was optimistic that the QX100 with it's f/1.8 Zeiss lens and 20MP sensor would meet my expectations, and be comparable in image quality to the NEX line of cameras. So far (all be it limited at the moment) the pictures I have taken do meet my standards in image quality. All the sharpness and creamy bokeh are present as you would expect with a wide 1.8 Zeiss lens. The sharpness is there thanks to the 20 megapixels, and the level of noise in low light is surprisingly low for such a high MP sensor.

I have not had the opportunity to shoot in bright sunny conditions yet; however, my initial experiences in low light photography with this camera are impressive. It even manages to provide a sharp blur free image with shutter speeds as low as 1/30th of a second.

It connects easily with your phone using the Sony PlayMemories free app, has complete control via the phone screen (including touch focus, exposure bracketing, zoom, etc.), and allows the user to take pictures at unusual point of views which makes for some interesting creative imagery.

So far, my only gripes are that you have to hit the back button each time you snap a picture (this may be fixed with a future firmware update), and the bracket to attach to a phone is not big enough to attach to larger smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy Note.

Style Name: QX 10Configuration: BaseColor: Black Verified Purchase
I ordered the DSC-QX10/B and used it for about a week with my iPhone before ultimately deciding to return it. Why?

Pros:
* Picture quality is good. Much better than built-in phone camera.
* Zoom is good.
* Detachability is good. I used the lens off-phone several times with nice results that would have been impractical or impossible to get otherwise.
* Video is very good. Espcially outdoors in bright light (duh) but even inside, video is good.

Minor Cons
* Does not use phone GPS - there is no geotagging on the images.
* EXIF data does not indicate which shooting mode was used for the image
* no way to transfer images over wifi to computer. The full-size images and videos are stored on the microSD card. To get them to the computer you must copy them to the phone then phone to computer. Or, remove the sd card from the camera and insert in computer. Just plugging in the USB cable from lens to computer did not recognize it as a device that could be downloaded. Often times there was not enough space on the phone to transfer all the images there first, then move to computer, which meant removing the mounting bracket from the lens in order to acces the card slot, then removing the miniscule memory card, putting it in an adapter, plugging it into the computer, etc etc. Too many steps! Maybe this could be fixed in future releases.

And to be fair, you can put a pretty big card in there and the lens will send low-res 2MB previews to your phone "immediately" (still takes a few seconds). Those previews are good enough for social posting and knowing that you got the shot. Then you can download at the end of the day when you're back at home, as opposed to out in the wild.

Major cons:

* WiFi only.
