It's little bigger than the Qx10 but same sensor and can be controlled through play memories.
I looked into the HX-50V, but it was also over 4 times what I paid for the QX10, so that was a major selling point.

Qx10 must be going for very cheap where you are because HX-50v where i am is little less than double the cost of QX-10. Same ratio applies with QX100 & RX100MK2. In some countries recall people saying they got the QX10 as a gift with the Z1.

The same play memories app works with hx-50v as well. Sensor is the same as well as photo quality.

I picked up a QX10 from the Sony store for $130 plus tax. Although I see the HX-50v is $299 at Futureshop right now... Maybe I'll grab one of those too.... Damn you Sony.

Damn sony is right. hx-50 v is a travel zoom, same sensor as Z1.

RX100 is a 1 inch sensor, only 5x zoom.

Whether to get another camera along with the Z1 or not is a question i've yet to figure out. Thing is the phone is always with you.

The play memories app is getting lots of flak for being very limited. Sony desperately need to overhaul it.

How is the connection & setup time with qx-10 ? figure it works better with NFC than wifi. I see so many reviewers using their iphones and complaining about frequently losing the wifi connection. Reconect again or some time the app itself crashes.

qx10/100 concept is is intersting but the present execution on the software side leaves a lot to be desired.
