I can remember the days of carrying a digital camera in a clunky camera bag. Sometimes I didn’t even bother with the camera bag… I would wrap my pricey camera in a scarf, or carry it looped around my neck because I knew if I had to fish it out of my camera bag the moment would be lost before I was able to turn the camera on and focus on my subject. When I started using a Smartphone, my camera was pretty much forgotten about. I had it at home to be used for products that I was reviewing, but I never took it out with me anywhere. It is so much easier to snap a shot on my phone than go through the whole drag the DSLR out just in case I want that perfect shot routine. But lets face it, the quality of cell phone photos leaves a little to be desired.
I love that you can even use the camera without attaching it to your phone. This is a handy feature for snapping the perfect photo anywhere, anytime. If you are at the baseball game and someone is standing in front of you, blocking the perfect shot of your son at bat… with the Sony QX10 that isn’t an issue! Just lift the camera and take the shot using your phone screen at your eye level. No more awkward positions or ‘guessing’ to see if the shot is good!
I received the Sony QX10 in exchange for my opinions on it. All opinions are 100% my own.
