Rated 4 out of 5 by Jackson0423 Amazing low-light pics, but lags at times
I bought this camera for a trip to Greece and it enabled me to take some amazing pictures, especially at night. The UI is intuitive and the Play Mobile app is great. I like the idea of having a camera that instantly saves to my phone, very convenient for sharing pics/vids.
The only real downside is that it if you have the camera off and the app closed, when you want to take a picture, it takes about a minute to 90 seconds to turn on the camera, load the app, and wait for them to sync so you can take a picture. Therefore, capturing spontaneous moments can be difficult, unless you have the app and camera synced already, which can kill the battery on the camera and your phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JonJ928 Very Cool Camera - Interface needs work, still!!!
I first really took a look into the QX10 just last week. After some YouTube research, I had to have one. I am very satisfied with the quality of the pictures and the lens camera itself so far. Great pictures and a great idea. This device clearly is not made for the quick "pull out of you pocket" camera shoot, but it is great for a quick setup and pulling in of a great picture without lugging around a lot of extra stuff. I have used the lens with 2 different cell phones and a tablet.
The interface is a problem. PlayMemories is still buggy as of March 21, 2014. The program often hangs up on my Samsung S4 requiring a forced shut down. The NFC connection more often than not does not work. Straight WiFi connection is also a little slow. The interface really needs to be fixed and reliable. This is the only reason I can not give a full 5 stars. The interface also has me considering returning the lens. The QX10 is a great toy, but if I can not use it, why keep it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tessa Horehled It's super cool! I've definitely made both kids and adults impressed with it. It doesn't fit over my iPhone case so I primarily hold it in a different hand, which takes a few to get used to but I actually prefer to on-phone use. I love that it saves the photos straight to my phone which is easy for sharing. I wish I could save it to the cloud somewhere or on the device instead of my phone however because the photos are larger and take up a good bit of room. I would also be interested in a case for it! I borrowed a case from one of my SLR lenses so it wouldn't get banged around in my bag when carrying it around. Overall: Very cool. Recommended! The price point was the only thing most of my friends had hesitation about. Would be more likely to check out around $150.
