Mobile madness? Our opinion on Sony's QX clip-on cameras
The Sony QX cameras are mobile-photography-targeted modules that allow you to clip a larger sensor, zoom lens and additional battery to your smartphone to extend its capabilities. The modules use a Wi-Fi connection to allow their control from a camera app - making them some of the most connected cameras yet. So just what to we make of the compact 10x QX10 and the larger-sensor QX100?
