Paola Mezzera shows off the Sony QX100 in Turin

This is an advertisement for Sony’s QX100 slickly packaged as a feature about Italian photographer Paola Mezzera. However, even if it’s a commercial, there’s still some value in checking it out. While I’m not going to rush out and buy one of these cameras, which are basically lenses that can be controlled by your smart phone, it was still interesting to see this strange little contraption in action and to see how Mezzera worked with it. The QX100 can be attached to your phone, held in your hand or mounted on something while you use the phone as a viewfinder. You can also use the phone to control some of the exposure settings. It’s small, nimble and seems like something you’d get if you mated your smart phone with a sure-shot camera. Is it the future of street photography?

Mezzera on what he looks for:

The best photos often come from finding something extraordinary in an ordinary person.
