You love taking pictures with your phone, right? You’re like a photo junkie. Yeah me too. What if I told you that your pictures could be EPIC. I mean really AMAZING. That’s what happened when I was introduced to the Sony QX10 Attachable Lens available at Best Buy!
I was super thrilled to start testing it out. I loved its portable size from the beginning. It fits in the palm of your hand easily. Apparently, my Instagram friends were pretty excited too.
I adore taking pictures of food. I take them just for fun, for work and just for the art of it. I’ve depended on my DSLR mostly for this caliber of photo. No more lugging that thing around though. This yukon gold potato salad with bacon practically jumps off the screen. With the Sony QX10 I can zoom in amazingly close without distortion or loosing picture quality.
You can practically see every grain, right?! Now you’re hungry AND you want to take ALL THE PHOTOS…
With 10x optical zoom and 18.2 megapixels, I can get high quality photos anywhere and in most conditions. That’s the problem with my old DLSR, it wasn’t portable or a convenient size and most of the time it wasn’t even with me. Even when it was with me, the battery only lasted for a short time. EVERYTHING is better now with the Sony QX10. I’ve taken my photos to an amazing level, the battery lasts extraordinarily long and I could not be more happy with it. I mean, look for yourself-check out the details on this mushroom. In other news, my son needs to wash his hands. Details, details, details…
Now you know I couldn’t talk about EPIC smartphone photography without mentioning the all important SELFIE. I was just playing around in the car while I was waiting but I think it turned out pretty good. BONUS: I am actually looking at the camera and not the phone’s screen. For this photo, I actually held the Sony QX10 in my hand and left the smartphone on my lap. It works by bluetooth through the Play Memories app so you can use it both attached to your phone the traditional way or you can hold it (or put it on a tripod) and control it from your phone. The app is available in the iPhone App store, on Google Play and its even available for Windows Phones too. (NOTE: There is a slight delay when taking photos from the Sony QX10 with the app. I was willing to deal with the couple of extra seconds since the photos are so much better. It does take a little getting used to but now I barely notice it.)
Want to take an amazing family photo? OF COURSE YOU DO! This photo is definitely my favorite one. YAY for smiles from my favorite people.
The Sony QX10 easily attaches to my phone even with the case on it. I LOVE that!! Even better, it’s on sale right now at BestBuy.com right now for $169.99 (prices subject to change)!! When I was showing people in person what this could do at the last couple of conferences I attended, they were immediately ready to drop 200 bucks for it. A couple of people even tried to buy mine from me right there! This attachable lens is an amazing option for any photog. Hey and don’t forget it takes HD video too. IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES!!
