The Sony ILCE-QX1[1][2] is a mobile device mountable, Wi-Fi-controlled, lens-type compact camera manufactured by Sony and was announced on 3 September 2014. Part of the Sony α family, it is one of Sony's "Smart Lens" cameras, alongside the QX10, QX30 and QX100, that are designed to be specifically used with a smartphone. It has a 20.1 megapixel APS-C-size sensor, uses an interchangeable E-mount lens as its highlight feature, supports power zoom but no in-body image stabilization, and has a pop-up flash unlike its other QX siblings.[3]

Features[edit]

On the ILCE-QX1 itself, there are buttons for on/off, flash pop-up, lens release and shutter, which are enough for standalone shooting.[4] But due to its lens-style design, the camera module requires an iOS or Android device, connected through the camera's Wi-Fi via the PlayMemories Mobile application, to utilize the device's screen as its viewfinder and camera controls, while also serving as additional storage medium via its integrated wireless file transfer feature.[5]

The ILCE-QX1 allows capture in RAW format, but RAW files can only be directly wirelessly transferred to Android devices, not, as of September 2014, to iOS.[5]Video capture is possible in Full HD at 30 fps,[3] and battery life for still capture is rated at 440 shots.[6]
