Right before Christmas, news broke that Sony had an update in the pipeline for the QX10 and QX100 lens cameras that would help them take better photos in low light and improve video quality. Well, that update has finally arrived.

In case you somehow still haven’t heard about these cameras, here’s a quick recap: The Sony QX10 and QX100 are lens-shaped smartphone add-ons that pack a sensor and processor all their own within the body. You still use your smartphone to control the hardware, but the cameras allow you to take much higher quality pictures than your smartphone is capable of.

Well, that gap between what your smartphone can do and what these cameras can do just got even wider. Sony has just introduced a firmware update that boosts the QX10 and QX100′s max ISO to 3,200 and 12,800, respectively and lets you shoot full HD 1080p video.

Additionally, owners of the more powerful QX100 now have a Shutter Priority mode to play with in addition to Program Auto, Aperture Priority, Intelligent Auto and more.

To find out more about the update or download it for yourself, head over to Sony’s website by clicking here for Mac users and here for Windows users.
