ILCE-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.

The ILCE-QX1 lets serious photographers make use of their precious E-mount lens collection. Just pick your favourite lens – zoom, wide angle, tele or macro – and unleash your artistry with control over exposure, focus and shooting modes.

The lens-style camera’s APS-C size Exmor CMOS sensor with 20.1-megapixels captures flawless detail, just like you’d expect from a much bigger camera. Teamed with Sony’s advanced BIONZ X processor that now features improved area-specific noise reduction, you’ll really notice the difference with stunning low-noise images – even if you’re shooting in near-darkness when small sensors struggle.

The large sensor inside the QX1 also lets you create pro-style ‘bokeh’ effects with smooth background blur – a trick that smartphones can’t match.

Serious snappers and casual photographers alike will be spoilt with a wealth of other premium features. Superior Auto recognises different scenes from landscapes to backlit portraits – adjusting settings for top-quality results without fuss. For those photographers who enjoy post-production editing, the QX1 can now shoot RAW image files and in a lens-style camera first, the QX1 debuts a pop-up flash to brighten up portraits, gloomy interiors and night scenes.Sony ILCE-QX1 32

The LCS-QXA Case and Strap Kit adds a touch of luxury with its tough brown leather-look finish. The QX1 is protected snuggly, with a choice of shoulder strap or belt-mounting options while you’re out and about.
