A guided tour of the Sony QX1 and QX30 smartphone cameras
Let's start out with the Sony DSC-QX30, which is an update to the QX10. As you might have guessed from its name, it has a 30X 'Sony G' zoom lens covering an equivalent focal range of 24-720mm. As with nearly all compact superzooms, the maximum aperture is an unimpressive F3.5-6.3.
The sensor on the QX30 is a 1/2.3" 20.4 Megapixel Exmor R BSI-CMOS, which can be found in some of Sony's compact Cyber-shots. The Bionz X processor is Sony's latest and greatest and allows for a top ISO of 3200, 10 fps burst shooting, and 1080/60p video.
