Care Plan
from £2.50 per month


Care Plan for Digital Cameras

A Care Plan protects your digital camera if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

Capturing breathtaking photos in a revolutionary way, the Sony DSC-QX100 Lens-Style Camera for Smartphones is a perfect partner to your Android or iOS smartphone device – enjoy more freedom, control and image quality when taken photos.

Versatile photography

This versatile piece of equipment can be neatly mounted onto your smartphone with the included mount attachment. The lens connects to your phone via NFC and WiFi, giving you complete wireless control. It is fully functioning whether it is attached or not, allowing you to enjoy more freedom when taking photos. Hold the lens to your subject while viewing and controlling the composition from your smartphone screen. This is a great way to get in tighter spaces or shoot from extreme angles.

Stunning imaging

The Sony DSC-QX100 lens incorporates advanced imaging technology - achieving remarkable shots bursting with colour and detail is effortless thanks to the massive 20.2-megapixel Exmor R sensor. The back illumination technology packs in more light into every shot, working in conjunction with the advanced processing engine to dramatically reduce noise levels. You can now shoot beautifully clean, low-noise stills and videos in dimly-lit situations at high sensitivity settings, straight from your smartphone.

Carl Zeiss optics

Renowned Carl Zeiss optics and powerful imaging technology are merged into the high performance lens camera, making the QX100 an accurate and precise performer. An impressive 3.6x optical zoom and wide F1.9 aperture range with seven-blade diaphragm accomplish gorgeous background defocusing and bokeh effects.

A rapid AF system is quick to lock-on moving subjects, keeping them in sharp focus – great for wildlife and sport photography.

Sharing is easy

Touch the lens against an NFC smartphone to make a connection, or connect via WiFi, then the fun starts. You can place the camera at a distance and shoot group shots, or place it in an angle and wait for that perfect moment - shoot from angles you never thought were possible. Once you have captured your image you can edit it on your favourite editing app or share it instantly with your friends over a social network.

Smartphone control

Manually adjust the focus and zoom via the SLR-style control ring as well as your smartphone interface. Download the Sony PlayMemories Mobile app to your phone and gain control over the aperture, exposure and more.

A superior auto mode is on hand to give you the option of simple point and shoot photography. The Auto mode detects the shooting conditions before automatically adjusting the settings for the best possible result.

Capture HD movies

The large CMOS sensor and intelligent lens technology make it possible to shoot high quality HD movies at 30fps, even in low-light.

The sophisticated Sony DSC-QX100 Lens-Style Camera for Smartphones handles demanding shots with speed and precision, delivering rich and vivid results.
