My iPhone camera is better than this Lens1 Posted by: from: on Got a great deal on this lens and thought I'd give it a shot. Big disappointment. Too slow and not good quality images. My iPhone camera works better and faster.

Once you get the software working, it's great4 Posted by: from: on If you're a techy, I would highly recommend the DSC-QX10. If you're not there are some issues that you might want to consider first before buying it. I was pleasantly surprised that it works without a memory card and that it can also work with Sony's RM-LVR1. That's the good news. There are several things that are both annoying and frustrating. The battery in the ActionCam is a NP-BX1 and the battery in the Cyber-shot is an NP-BN. I would be nice if they were both the same. Sony offers no support for Windows XP. If you need to do firmware updates or install the PlayMemories software you have to look elsewhere. In order for me to get the software to work on my Android device I had to carefully read the FAQs online and guess as to what applied to me and in addition I used a buffer flusher. It was not obvious as to which solution helped. Just because your Android device isn't listed by Sony it doesn't that it won't work. My phone is a Oneplus One and, after several failed attempts, Sony's software now works fine. The software is a work in progress. I hope that in future editions it will have lighting profiles so that it will be easier to take photos and movies in different lighting conditions. In order to use the DSC-QX10 with the RM-LVR1 you may have to do a firmware update. The latest version is 3.0. My Cyber-shot lens had version 1.0. Now that I've solved various problems, it now works as advertised.

Regret1 Posted by: from: on I really regret buying this camera. I should've paid a little bit more and bought an actual camera. The camera is super slow, because it has to connect to the ap on the phone, so you can't take fast pictures. It's not easy to carry around and there is no case for it. I hope they get more upgrades.

Good idea, but...3 Posted by: from: Bay Area, ca on Bulky and heavy; hard to hold steady. Auto focus kept taking pictures non-stop. Using bluetooth connect drains battery.
