Sony brings 1080p recording to the QX10/QX100 lens-style cameras
Great news for people who own a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX10 or a DSC-QX100 lens-style camera! The firmware update, which we informed you about more than a month ago, is finally available for download. It adds Full-HD video recording capabilities and other nifty features to both lenses. This means that both gadgets can now record videos with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Up until the update, the lenses could record video clips at a maximum resolution of 1440 x 1080 pixels.

In addition, the DSC-QX100 lens has received a shutter priority mode, which allows you to directly control the speed of its shutter. Additionally, in order to boost low-light capabilities, the ISO range of the DSC-QX100 has been greatly improved – from "max ISO 3200 to max ISO 12800''. The light sensitivity of the DSC-QX10 has also been increased to ISO 3200. This means that both lenses are now capable of shooting even better low-light stills.

The lenses can't be updated over-the-air, so you will need to execute this operation via your desktop computer. You can download the update at the source link.

They already used to be 1080p... whats new about it is the aspect ratio is wider. Title makes it sound like they were sub 1080p before
