Sony Updates QX10 and QX100 External Cameras to Version 3.0

QX10 QX100 Lens Package

 

When Sony released the QX10 and QX100 cameras to use with smartphones, we all thought that Sony might have gone a little mad. However, there’s a decent amount of people out there using Sony’s nifty (if not a little awkward) and those users will be happy to here that Version 3.0 Firmware has been released for both devices. Fixing slow NFC pairing, and adding a feature here and there, this is another solid upgrade to Sony’s lens cameras. You can get the firmware for the QX10 here and the QX100 here. Unfortunately folks, you’ll need to have a Windows PC lying around for this update.

The more rugged version of the Galaxy S4, the Active, is getting the same Android 4.4.2 KitKat update that other Galaxy devices have gotten this week. Rolling out to AT&T devices, the update is a pretty standard affair, updating things behind the hood more than anything else, but does bring with it some of that KitKat look and feel. Your statusbar icons will go white, and there’ll be an easy to unlock straight to the camera from your locksreen. The update should be rolling out right now, but if it hasn’t done yet, we’re sure the wait won’t be that much longer. To find out more, head on over to AT&T’s blog.
