For those who have everything: Sony DSC-QX100

The Sony DSC-QX100 turns your smartphone into a much better camera.

Your smartphone just became a much better camera. The Sony DSC-QX100 clips onto most phones and uses the touch screen as a live display. But it has the same lens as “one of the best compact cameras on the market,” so the images it produces are “brighter and more balanced.” Best paired with phones that support near field communication, it can’t always take a photo the moment you pick it up. But the QX100 (and its $250 sibling, the QX10) work even when the phone is across the room, in the hands of the shooter. Clearly, “the selfie will never be the same.”
