Sony DSC-QX10 Lens Style Smartphone Camera, HD 1080p, 18MP, 10x Optical Zoom, Wi-Fi, NFC, Black

Product information

Experience photography for the smartphone age. With a simple connection, a wireless, smart lens gives your phone a powerful 10x optical zoom and smooth image stabilisation. It takes photos you never thought possible with your phone.

Key benefits:

  • Transform your Android or Apple smartphone into a high-performance camera. Simply mount a smart lens to a phone and start shooting. Your smartphone becomes the camera body. Use the touchscreen to shoot and retouch images. Upload photos and HD videos on Facebook or store them online.

  • Some scenes are too far away for a smartphone to capture. From a towering cityscape to a stretching sandy beach, pull them closer with G Lens technology and 10x optical zoom. And when you’re filming, Optical SteadyShot Active mode cuts the effect of shaky hands for crisp, blur-free movies.

  • Festivals, road trips or barbecues – don’t let a once-in-a-lifetime shot pass you by. The smart lens has a BIONZ image processor for clear photos and HD movies – even when the action’s fast. The moment might last a second, but you get smooth results that last a lifetime.

  • Have some fun with a smart lens. Make a connection – touch the lens against an NFC smartphone for the wireless freedom to shoot angles you couldn’t before. Haven’t got an NFC phone? Connect via Wi-Fi. Be in a group shot: put the lens down and take the photo from your phone.

  • Low light? That’s no problem with an 18MP Exmor R CMOS sensor. Back-illumination technology lets more light inside the camera – no wires block the path – for brighter results. Everything stays sharp: Intelligent Auto Mode detects scenery and adjusts the settings for you.

  • Works with Android or iOS phones.

  • Includes rechargeable battery back, micro USB cable, wrist strap, smartphone attachment.

Please note: works with Apple iOS versions 5.0 - 7.0 and Android versions 2.3 - 4.4. Future updates may alter compatibility.

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product my husband carn't put it down he loves this takes lovely pictures from the I phone6 09 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous product Does video and pics - easy to use and great quality 05 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sony QX10 smartphone camera Fantastic bit if kit. Pop it into my day bag and it's there if ai need to produce more than a snapshot. produced some nature shots that my friend a semi professional photographer described as impressive. The only let down is the poor software that Sony produced for it. Which someone would produce an app worthy f this lens. 22 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Niche camera Have now been using the QX10 for a week. A niche camera. Small enough to fit into pocket so you wouldn't notice. Picture quality that of a good point and shoot and significant improvement on smartphone camera. Thus ideal if smartphone is OK for most of the time but there is the need for an occasional better image. Can point and shoot camera alone in about 5sec. To tether with smartphone takes about 20secs. With practice can now attach camera quickly to phone. Sony software rudimentary. Easy to share images which are stored in camera and copied to the phone. 2 big pluses for me are having use of amoled phone screen and ability to use the camera remotely - used up to 10m with slight lag. 10 October 2013
