Sony Updates QX lens cameras with new features and HD video mode

Sony cameras get new features via a firmware update

Sony has announced a new firmware update is available for both if its QX lens cameras. The updates are available for the QX 100 and the QX 10 digital cameras. The cameras look like a lens alone and are designed to attach to a smartphone. They can be used without a smartphone as well.

The QX 100 digital camera gets an update that adds a shutter priority mode that allows the user to control the shutter speed. The QX 100 also gets an expanded ISO range of ISO 160-12800. The camera also gets the ability to shoot in full HD mode for video when recording in MP4 format.

The QX 10 gets similar updates with a new 1920 x 1080 30p MP4 video recording mode. The camera also gets an expanded ISO range of ISO100-3200.

Sony writes, "Sony continues to update and improve the connectivity of the QX interface to meet users’ demands for a more seamless experience. The QX Lens-style cameras now offer the ability to transition between taking your shot and accessing the preview function without interrupting the Wi-Fi connection, and the time it takes to establish a Wi-Fi connection has been shortened by half."

A new accessory will be available in March that allows the cameras to be connected to tablets. The accessory is the SPA-TA1 and supports devices between 75mm and 20mm high.
