Sony QX Lenses: Mobile Photography Reimagined

The Sony QX10 and QX100 kind of defy explanation. Are they lenses? Kind of. Cameras? Yes, but they’re so much cooler than that.

Basically, the QX lenses are high quality camera lenses… with the camera inside. The lens has its own wifi signal and connects to your smartphone, which lets you control the lens and acts as a viewfinder.


The whole setup is so much more portable than a standard digital SLR, or even a point-and-shoot camera (because let’s be real, you have your phone with you all the time anyway). I’m seriously itching to test this out at a concert!

I'm an ex-Midwesterner currently living in LA. I spend about half of my life in trouble with my girlfriend for being on my phone. I'm a photographer, a stunt coordinator, and a synesthete (one of those was a lie). I like technology but only understand it about 20% of the time....
