Nowadays to buy a mirrorless camera can be a difficult decision with the wide variety of brands and models. I love the philosophy of Fuji, great cameras that make me feel like Robert Capa or Henri Cartier-Bresson

But surely I will sold my old Nex to buy new ILCE-QX1. Small, light, APS-C sensor, perfect for travel anywhere with a 16 mm + 30 mm lens and a little tripod. The biggest problem: the battery of my mobile.

Sony explains more about this cameras here

Sony is also expanding its Lens-style Camera lineup with two new models that link with smartphones*1 via Wi-Fi, and can be directly attached to smartphones or used separately to allow users to take pictures of themselves, or other high-quality photos and video*2 from any angle.

ILCE-QX1ILCE-QX1 features the same APS-C CMOS image sensor as Sony's mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras, and is capable of taking high-quality photos with beautiful defocusing and clear night scene shots with high sensitivity and low noise, as well as a wide variety of expressions through its compatibility with interchangeable E-mount lenses based on the α™ Mount System.

DSC-QX30 features the same 30x optical zoom Sony G Lens, Optical Steadyshot and auto-focus functions found in Sony's Cyber-shot™ models, making it possible to capture photographs that could not be taken using just an internal smartphone camera, such as distant subjects, with less blur.

Additionally, copper and pink color variations have been added to the current DSC-QX10.

Updates to Sony's mobile application PlayMemories Mobile™ have improved connection time and stability after connection, while also enhancing functionality and the user interface for easier operation.

The one problem I have with the Sony QX range is the slowness of the phone app. It takes a while for it to start up, connect to the camera and be ready to shoot. The software is buggy and frequently disconnects at the most inopportune moments. There's also significant shutter lag. So far, it's useful as a secondary device or to remotely control a camera for selfies but it's far from ready for prime time to be a primary camera.

Thanks Peter. I will test before to change!!
