New Sony QX cams: Possibly brilliant (?)
I’m deeply intrigued by the new Sony QX10 & QX100 cameras, which use your smartphone as a viewfinder:
Big zoom plus real bokeh from an iPhone, especially during video? You have my strict attention.
DPReview finds the cams “a bit underwhelming,” and a bunch of questions remain unanswered for me (e.g. can one transfer video wirelessly? how long does it take to transfer stills?). Even so, I’m optimistic, and I’ve asked Photojojo to let me know when they’re ready to order.
