Here is an awesome gadget for all photo takers looking to capture amazing images with their phone and some amazing help. Ready to convert your smartphone into a serious camera? Here is an attachable lens by Sony that will positively impact the quality and ability of the many mobile photographers out there. It is the Cybershot DSC-QX10.
We are very happy to include this fun and fabulous item in our Holiday Gift Guide. We are sure many will rejoice to find it under their tree!
I was more than excited to get playing with the lens. The contents of the package are, besides the references guides and manual:
- smartphone attachment
- USB cable
- rechargeable battery pack
- wrist strap
The installation was a breeze. In less that 5 minutes I was ready to go, including downloading the PlayMemories app required to use the lens, and the Wi-Fi pairing lens/smartphone. No need to charge the battery, once in it is ready to go.
The lens itself is very lightweight. Easy to mount on the smartphone. Extremely portable, you can choose to keep lens on phone or discreetly carry it with you in a pocket. It does mount very securely on the phone, thanks to its clip (or clamps), so you can just focus on your subject and snap away! Talking about snapping, it is extremely easy to use. Choose to use the lens shutter button or take the photo directly on the phone screen.
The photos are of great quality and the zoom is totally amazing! I do feel it improved significantly the quality of my phone pictures. The photos can be saved on both the lens and the phone. Those avid social media users in your life (ahem, bloggers) will love that you can share instantly there as well as on other apps.
By the way, it is not only for photos. You can capture video too. It has a build in stereo microphone.

The Sony Cybershot DSC-QX10 is a great alternative to carrying around a DSLR and just perfect for those moments you wished you had brought it along too.
This camera is perfect for travel, and capturing family moments. I don’t think I will ever leave home with out it!
