Anytime I whip out this camera I always get a million questions about it! Mainly because It is so different to any camera we normally see!
This is a Sony Lens G,DSC-QX10 basically what it is, is a lens that you clip on to your phone or you can have it free standing and it takes amazing quality photos and videos. It is so handy for blogging and vlogging as it’s so small you can bring it everywhere! The reason I bought this camera was because I wanted a fancy DSLR but couldn’t part with the best part of €500 for one, so this was my alternative.
I am so glad I bought this lens and heres why;
- So easy to use
- Photos automatically load onto my phone, laptop.
- Photos are clear and good quality
- Can use my phone, iPad as a viewfinder for filming video’s and taking blog pictures.
Lets get into the technical stuff but don’t worry I am a camera novice so lets understand what those fancy photography terms mean to you and me!
- 18 mega pixels – How clear your image will be,
- 10x optical zoom and automatic stabilisation, how far away your image can focus in on, and how stable the camera will be after your shaky hands.
- HD Video
To control your camera you need to download the play memories mobile from iTunes or android. Its free don’t worry!
On Play Memories Mobile you can;
- change camera settings my favourite is superior mode as in low light like winter and when your in restaurants the camera automatically adjusts the light so that the image is bright and clear. This has been a lifesaver for me!
- You can zoom, focus. All the basic stuff!
The reason why I love this camera is because its not fussy obviously if you want you can adjust the camera to your own settings but for me I like the superior setting it comes with. Its such an easy camera to use sometimes having to attach your phone is a bit of a faff but the images are then on your phone so you can upload them to twitter, instagram, Facebook your blog. If your in the market for a new camera, I would check this one out,
Its €179 which I think is personally an amazing price for such a good camera!
