Tonight, Sony is announcing a new update to their Play Memories Mobile app that enhances the usability of the QX cameras. Minor things are included, like better performance with iOS devices. But with that said, the QX10 and QX100 are receiving firmware updates too. Both cameras are getting 1080p 30p video recording in the MP4 format and ISO expansion to 12,800.

But the other cool thing is that shutter priority is coming to the QX100–which makes a ton of sense because the RX100 Mk II and Mk I both have full manual capabilities.

It’s going to be a very interesting day for the mobile photography world when these units get manual control–and then Nokia might be shaking. Maybe we’ll see something at CES 2014.
