Enjoy E-mount lens quality with the new lens-style camera

The new lens-style camera captures images that are usually only possible with an interchangeable-lens camera. Thanks to a APS-C size Exmor CMOS sensor, you can capture striking detail with beautiful defocusing using your smartphone or tablet.

Switch lenses, share your vision

Once the lens-style camera is attached to your smartphone or tablet, you can fix a wide range of E-mount lenses to help you take your shooting further.

A technological masterpiece

Digital cameras rely on three key components: the lens, the image sensor, and the image processing engine. What makes the new lens-style camera so exceptional is that Sony specifically designs these components to work together for stunning photos and movies.

Built-in flash for bright results

Shoot in darkness without blurry results, thanks to a built-in flash (GN42).Superior Auto mode recognises your shooting environments and adjusts settings accordingly.

Free expression with manual control

Take control of your photography with P/A/S manual settings. Select Program Auto, aperture priority, shutter priority, exposure, and more.

Find the perfect angle

Add another dimension to your photography – just attach the ADP-FSK1 tilt adapter and grip to your lens-style camera and smartphone. The ADP-FSK1 is supplied with the QX1, or can be purchased separately for use with other lens-style cameras.

Tilt adapter

Get creative with your photography. Tilt upwards to 195° and capture great shots from different angles. You can also rotate the camera 90° to take a photo of yourself.


Enjoy total control when you’re shooting. The grip is easy to hold, allowing you to capture your subject with confidence.

Shoot, edit, and share

This lens-style camera works seamlessly with your smartphone, allowing you to shoot beautiful images, edit them on your phone, and then share them online.

Get creative with your photography

Set up your lens-style camera in previously tough-to-reach spots, then take control – including zoom, framing, and capture – using your mobile device.
