Well ...Big news on the small camera scene....the GO PRO 4 $$$ession model has been launched yesterday....very capable but $399US


its go pros first waterproof without a housing, half the size of the other 4 models when they are in a housing and 40% of their weight


down on features, only 1080 video and 8mp stills, but 2 hour battery life which is sealed in

:)....hi All, a few weeks ago I got a used Sony QX10.I paid about half retail and I'm impressed.


CUTE as a Q ! ! ! size of a sink plug(half the volume of a Q(approx.) 100gms


18mp ....30fps video..... but no raw. 25/250mm zoom...f3.3 to 6ish....


So its controlled by an app on your phone(it works well with latest firmware)


Not everyones cup of tea but here are my applications


1... I attach it to the hotshoe of the Q and shoot video with QX and continuous stills with the Q(surfing and other action stuff)


2....Street shooting is very discreet....I can point it anyware while I'm looking in another direction at my phone


3.....Drone...just an idea at this stage as I don't own one....start the video then lift the drone and do a flight...the video will continue till drone returns and is in range to switch it off


4...Concerts..music festivals where its shoulder to shoulder and difficult to see....a 100gm camera isn't going to become a burden when lifted overhead


So all in all a very versatile tool to compliment the Q in the first application
