    Default Sony Releases Firmware Updates for its QX10/QX100 Wireless Camera Lenses


    Sony recently pushed out a firmware update for its iOS-compatible DSC-QX10/QX100 “lens-style” cameras, adding a half-press to focus function to the device’s on-board shutter release, higher resolution MP4 video recording and other minor enhancements. With the added functionality, Sony brings the QX series in line with many other consumer cameras on the market that can activate auto focus by depressing the hardware shutter release to a halfway point. Users can then snap a picture by pressing down fully.

    Sony also rolled out a new PlayMemories Mobile iOS app with UI improvements along with the release of the new camera firmware. When the camera is connected to an iOS device, users can touch the screen to focus and release to take a picture. That being said, the unit’s focus control features leave much to be desired, especially when controlling the device through the buggy PlayMemories Mobile app.


    In addition to half-press focus, Sony has upped MP4 recording size from 1,440 by 1080 pixels to 1920 by 1080. Both resolutions are recorded at 30p or 30 full frames-per-second. The cameras also get a new “S-Mode” shutter priority mode and manual ISO sensitivity from 160 to 12,800. Although it doesn’t apply to iOS devices, Sony has included “One-Touch” near-field communication pairing for smartphones and tablets supporting the NFC protocol.

    The QX10 update is 92.19MB and the QX100 firmware comes in at 91.42MB. Those of you interested in downloading Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile app can do so for free through the App Store.

    Because it is a lens that can use the iPhone to snap photos and such.
