Sony Xperia Z1 Compact to have its own QX10/QX100 camera attachment case?
Announced by Sony in September, the QX10 and QX100 lens-style cameras are especially made to be paired with smartphones (they even work with Apple’s iPhone), turning them into more advanced cameras. The QX10 costs $248, featuring 10x optical zoom, while the QX100 costs $498, offering a very large 1-inch 20.2 MP Exmor R sensor with Carl Zeiss f/1.8 lens and 3.6x optical zoom - these are DSLR-like features.
As for the Xperia Z1 Compact itself, this should be released around the world starting early February, costing around $500 unlocked. Our Sony Xperia Z1 Compact review shows that the Japanese company really nailed it with this handset. It seems to be the best mini smartphone released until now - and it’s no wonder, since it’s as powerful as the larger, critically-acclaimed Xperia Z1.

so you're putting a 20 mp camera on a phone with a 20mp camera? i know its still much better but i think this should be for the devices with wimpy cameras not the Z1 mini

The QX-100 is almost like a DSLR... with a 1" sensor. Pictures are incredible in low light, if you know how to take them, giving that it has no flash

I recently took my QX-100 for a trip to Argentina (Buenos Aires and Bariloche) and let me tell you... there was barely a moment when I actually needed flash in this beast of a camera...
I took around 900 pics and most turned out great, and the ones with low light like the Tango Show, also turned out fine, by turning up the ISO to 12800... Noise is not bad and in the show Flash was not allowed anyway!....
I definitely hope they make a case like this for the Z3 Compact
