Camera is held back by mediocre software

By

from New Orleans  -  Practical

The physical technology in this camera is very impressive. It takes good photos, with nice detail, and is reasonably easy to use once one gets used to it. Unfortunately, were I to rate the software on its own, the software would get 1-star. The chief drawback is a key missing feature: there appears to be no way to delete existing photographs except to reformat the memory card. Really? How can this be? Surely i have overlooked something. If so, I haven't found it yet. I've been using it for about 2 weeks, but less than I otherwise might due to software awkwardness.

Not yet ready for prime time

By

from NYC  -  Pro Photographer

Awful little piece of gear. Software not ready. Broke my fingernail attempting to get micro SD card in. Scanty instructions - mostly inaccurate drawings in lieu of real translations. Was very disappointed. The idea is good but I think they rushed it out too soon.

Good Toy

By

from Farmington Hills, MI  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

Great for fun and maybe serious photography for some people. Light weight and responsive without lag. I use it mainly for fun and instant camera in my pocket. Overall great product to have, I will be going for the higher model soon :)

Sony DSC-QX10 Smartphone

By

from Des Moines, IA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I have always searched for a "pocket" camera that would give me near-dslr quality without the bulk. It has arrived...nearly...in this product. By itself, I found the camera to function quite well. The bluetooth connection to my iPhone, however, tended to be a bit spotty. Thus, instead of being able to pull out of a pocket and shoot, the two devices have to synch first adding time to what might be a lost opportunity in a great shot. So, still some work to be done, but a very good start.
