Sony says it will fix the connectivity problems between its QX lenses and iOS 7
Some Apple iPhone users have had problems connecting to Sony's QX10 and QX100 wireless camera lens, and Sony has promised that a fix will be coming. A spokesman for the Japanese manufacturer said that there are "initial compatibility issues" with iOS 7. When paired to a device running iOS 7, the connection breaks off. Sony says that on iOS 6, the PlayMemories application works, but the software needs to be updated to be compatible with iOS 7.

Third party apps are being developed to enhance the capabilities of the lenses. Camera360 is said to be working on an update for its iOS app early this month, that will work with the two Sony QX models. In addition, Sony announced that an update for the iOS camera app by TapTapTap is coming shortly.

Both lens wirelessly connect with an iOS or Android smartphone using Wi-Fi and the pictures are sent to the user's phone from where it can be edited and sent out to friends and family via email, or uploaded to social networks. The QX10 offers an 18MP sensor and a Sony G lens with 10X optical zoom for $249.99. The QX100 is a 20.2MP lens featuring a RCMOS Exmor sensor and a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens. The latter is priced at $499.99.

Its not a question of comparing. Nokia and Sony are both amazing companies and they actually innovate. Detachable lens by Sony is a great IDEA instead of packing MPs in a camera like Nokia. Nevertheless, Can't have everything without innovation. The only reason this article even exists is because of iOS 7 problems cuz Apple can't ever "get it right" thats why its so "hard" for them LOL.

The qx100 is far ahead from lumia 1020, qx10 is its competitors.

Well said. I totally agree. Even so, Sony will still have to adjust to iOS 7 after it is actually FIXED, because they are trying to sell the product. Apple is not gonna care cuz they won't gain anything from it.
