QX10 and QX100 preorder

Earlier today we brought you news that the new Sony QX series attachable lenses had been announced. This is a great day for photography buffs because these lenses add so much power to the camera of your device. They come in 2 flavors, and both are available right now for pre-order at Amazon. Links are below.

In case you’re unaware of what these amazing lenses do, here’s a quick rundown.

  • The QX100 is 20.2MP while the QX10 is 18.2MP. Both have a Exmor RCMOS sensor.
  • Both come with Program Auto, Intelligent Auto, and Superior Auto functionality.
  • The QX100 comes with a wide aperture Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T Lens with 3.6x optical zoom.
  • The QX10 comes with a Sony G Lens with 10x optical zoom.
  • Uses Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile app, which connects the lenses to any Android or iOS device via WiFi or NFC (if applicable).
  • Both come with a rechargeable battery, memory card slot, and a shutter release.

These will no doubt be the best mobile accessories available for photo buffs. We’ve no doubt that people are already figuring out how to affix their Android device to a tripod.

    I just thought of something. Doesn’t have flash :-/

      Good call man. Strange no1 is talking about this. This looks to be a big flaw.

        There is a good possibility that the lens uses the phone’s LED flash instead of providing its own. I assume that’s what other people are assuming.

          Yes i figured as much but you are upgrading the camera three times yet the flash is the same. On board flash can’t cope with the thing the lens can do.

    I don’t understand who they think is buying this. For that money why would I just not buy a DSLR. I’m not just randomly carrying a lens in pocket on the off chance I want to take a picture of something with optical zoom. If I’m going to be in that situation, i.e. as a tourist, I’ll just carry around a real camera. I would GLADLY deal with a little extra bulk, even just for a small amount of optical zoom built into the phone.
