| p.4 #10 · Sony announces QX10 and QX100 cameras for smartphones |

If there is demand I'm sure the missing features will be delivered through an update. What is better is if they could open up and provide an API to let developers develop their own camera apps.
You asked for it yesterday, today Sony publishes their API. Amongst the cameras already compliant with this API are alt board favorites like NEX-6, Nex-5R, the recently announced NEX-5T, and the by many enthusiast photographers sceptically received DSC-QX100 / DSC-QX10 lenscameras. This is promising, not just for the users of these cameras, but in general Sony seems to be very serious about the "open camera" concept. It's a matter of time until these QX models will get a their lacking features for a great part through smartphone apps.
