Firmware Update

Firmware Update 1.01 for X-T10 | Fujifilm Global

The firmware update Ver. 1.01 from Ver. 1.00 incorporates the following issues:

 

  • 1.Improvement of „EYE DETECTION AF“ speed when used with XF90mmF2 R LM WR
    • „EYE DETECTION AF“ speed is improved when used with XF90mmF2 R LM WR in case that „FACE DETECTION“ and „EYE DETECTION AF“ are ON in „AUTO FOCUS SETTING“ of the Shooting Menu.
  • 2.Operational improvement of Fn1 Function button (Default setting : movie shooting)
    • The shortcut function to Fn1 BUTTON SETTING by pressing the button more than 2 sec. is removed. To avoid accidentally pressing the button when turning the Exposure compensation dial, pressing the button approx. 0.5sec. is required to start the function allocated to the button. This improvement is to avoid unexpected appearance of the SETTING when Fn1 function is needed.

      <Note-1>
      Functions of Fn2 through Fn7 button remain same.
      <Note-2>
      Steps to change the setting of Fn1 are same as usual like below.
      ・Change it in the function(Fn) setting menu appeared by pressing DISP/BACK button for a while.
      ・Change it through Setup Menu>BUTTON/DIAL SETTING>FUNCTION (Fn) SETTING.

  • 3.Angle difference between jpeg image and jpeg image converted from RAW file
    • Currently, there is angle difference between jpeg image (including jpeg images converted in a camera) and jpeg image converted from RAW file by RAW FILE CONVERTER EX2.0 etc. The jpeg image angle converted from RAW file is a little bigger.
      With this upgrade, the jpeg image angle is matched to one which is converted from RAW file. This symptom happens only when lenses below is used. In case of zoom lenses, this happen in wide-angle side.

      XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OIS, XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OIS Ⅱ, XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R LM OIS,
      XF10-24mmF4 R OIS, XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR, XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR,
      XF18mmF2 R and XF27mmF2.8

  • 4.Support for Windows10
    • The phenomenon is fixed that images in a camera cannot be transferred to a Windows10 PC via a USB cable.

Equipment during the trip and some thoughts on the 4.0 Firmware | Jonas Jacobsson

This along with 6 batteries for the X-T1(s), 160 GBs of memory cards, a Manfrotto tripod, Manfrotto Pixi mini-tripod along with some other minor accessories. Fujifilm Nordic provided me with an extra X-T, the X100T and the XF 10-24 mm which was greatly appreciated. I have used double X-T1 bodies during the latest three weddings and it’s a great setup without having to switch lenses as often. At the end of this post I will also briefly touch upon the latest firmware (4.0) for the X-T1. The X100T I wanted to use as a in-between-camera, for the little moments here and there, which it worked very good for. As for lenses I was a bit torn of what to bring. I had used the XF 14 mm on last years trip and it is one of my all-time favorite lenses without a doubt. Have said it before but it’s so small and produces as sharp images across the frame as you could ever hope for, truly a great lens. I had never owned the XF 10-24 before and why I choose the XF 14 mm over it in the first place it was because of sharpness and image quality. When I received the XF 10-24 mm from Fujifilm Nordic I tested it extensively the days before the trip and found that although the wider zoom has a greater angle of capturing images (obviously) the IQ is nowhere near the one of the XF 14 mm, especially in corners. So while I brought along the zoom anyway I ended up basically not using it all, using my wide prime lens instead and simply taking multiple images and then later stitch them together in a panorama afterwards in Lightroom. For me the IQ will always triumph the ability to have a bit wider reach, it’s just not worth it………

An In-Depth Fuji XT1 Firmware 4.0 Review | MirrorLessons

One year ago, I wrote an in-depth article about the autofocus capabilities of the Fujifilm X-T1 for action photography. At the time, the X-T1 was the fastest camera in the Fujifilm X series but was still considered inferior to many of its competitors, something with which I agreed. In spite of its imperfections, however, the camera was able to do the job as long as you chose the right settings. One year later, I began to observe a small yet relevant increase in photographers using the X-T1 for sports, not just weddings, street and portraits. In addition to striving to produce good lenses with better AF motors, Fujifilm also released a firmware update a few weeks ago that incorporates several new autofocus settings. I had a fleeting chance to try the firmware 4.0 on the X-T10 during my trip to Canada and my first impressions were positive. But since I wanted to write a new article with the same criteria as the first one, I decided to update my X-T1 and attend a number of sports events here in Wales to see how the new AF update would behave in various situations……

Fujifilm X-T1 Firmware Version 4 review | Andy Westlake

Back in the days of film, when you bought a camera you knew exactly what features you were getting. Digital cameras, in contrast, are miniature computers that take pictures, and this means they can be upgraded via firmware updates. Historically, these were mainly used to fix operational bugs, but in recent years Fujifilm has shaken up the industry with its philosophy of ‘kaizen’, continuously improving its cameras with a slew of new features and refinements. With version 4.0 for its premium mirrorless model, the X-T1, it has completely overhauled the camera’s autofocus system, with a particular emphasis on shooting moving subjects. As a reminder, the Fujifilm X-T1 was one of the standout cameras of last year. With a compact, rugged SLR-like design, it was roundly admired for its excellent image quality, intuitive operation and superb electronic viewfinder. Among its numerous plaudits were the Enthusiast Compact System Camera of the Year and the Reader Product of the Year at our 2015 AP awards………

Fujifilm X-T1 Firmware 4.0 First Look and Review | Dylan Goldby

As a former IT worker and all-around nerd, I was used to firmware updates having small changes to increase compatibility with new hardware and software; often allowing older BIOSes to support newer hardware, etc. Fujifilm’s engineers have turned this concept on its head with their firmware updates, which have routinely introduced new features to existing cameras, and giving users the best that Fujifilm have been able to pull from their existing hardware. These changes have brought huge improvements to already great cameras. Fujifilm’s new x-t1 Firmware 4.0 may just be the mother of all updates seen on an X-series camera yet. After using the new firmware for just under 24 hours, on a job yesterday, and in the streets on the way out, I would like to share my thoughts on the changes so far …….

X-T1 firmware 4.0 The Impossible Test | Eivind Rohne

This time around the Fujifilm firmware buzz really hit the roof, with claims of an all new autofocus system that would practically give existing X-T1 owners a brand new camera. Bold claims indeed. Claims not only made by those saying they had gotten hold of rogue and secret beta versions of the firmware, but also claims made by Fujifilm themselves in their marketing teasers. So, since Fujfilm decided to play the cocky marketing game, I set out to prove them wrong. I mean, it can’t be that good, can it?! Again I mean, because firmware 3.0 was a pretty fab upgrade. So I begged my friends at Fujifilm Nordic for an early version, so I could weave my secret web and reveal to the world what v4.0 was really about. So with this devious plan in mind, and an evil laughter soon to come, I jumped in the front seat of a car, and we head out for the highway. Having set the camera to the new Zone focus mode in the menu, continuous focus on the front switch, and Continous High as my drive mode, I told the driver to hit his continous high with the maximum allowed speed of 80 km/h. But that was only half of my devious plan. Because what lens did I choose for this test?! Well one of the oldest lenses of course, a lens that many people claim to be both slow and sluggish at AF. The XF35mm. And of course, I’d shoot it at maximum aperture, f/1.4, through a windshield that seemed to suffer from some bad programming. It wasn’t bug-free… In other words; The Impossible Test! …..

Fuji X-T1 firmware V4.0 review | Damien Lovegrove

When I was asked for my opinions on version 4 of the X-T1 firmware I was a little scared and excited in equal measure. Excited because the opportunity to shoot in a more dynamic style is quite appealing. Scary because relearning shooting procedures is never easy. I’ve never been one to shy away from innovation and I’m certainly not a luddite when it comes to tech so I jumped at the chance. Here are my findings. I decided to do a side by side comparison in each of my test situations and write up my findings. Writing up experiments and drawing upon the exif data really helps my learning process. I started with two X-T1 bodies running FW 3.11. I set all the parameters on both cameras to be identical and then did an upgrade to X-T1 firmware v4 on the black body only. I found that firmware V4 affects many more elements than I had expected and it really is a step change not just an evolutionary upgrade. I’ll start with my summary for those of you in a hurry. If you read on past that list I go on to give advice based on the mistakes and experiences I’ve had with FW4. All the updates are positive with some features being more useful than others…….

X-T1 / X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition Camera Body
Firmware Update Ver.4.00 | Fujifilm Global

The firmware update Ver.4.00 from Ver.3.11 incorporates the following issues:

    1. New AF System

      (1)Zone and Wide/Tracking modes for effortless capture of moving subjects The AF System complements the fast and accurate 49-single-point autofocus system with new Zone and Wide/Tracking modes, which use 77 autofocus points across a wider area to substantially improve the camera’s ability to capture moving subjects.
      (2)Improvement of AF accuracy Single-point AF divides the focus area into smaller sections to more accurately determine the distance to the subject for even greater focusing accuracy. The built-in phase detection pixels have the detection range of 0.5EV, an improvement from the previous 2.5EV, delivering phase detection AF performance that enables fast focusing in low-light conditions and on low- contrast subjects.
      (3)Eye detection AF The firmware update provides Fujifilm’s Eye Detection AF, which automatically detects and focuses on human eyes.The function allows you to easily focus on the eyes even in difficult conditions.
      (4)Auto Macro mode The firmware update introduces the Auto Macro function, which automatically switches the camera into the Macro mode while maintaining the conventional AF speed. You no longer have to press the Macro button to initiate a close-up shot. This update eliminates the Macro function assigned to the Macro Button, allowing you to assign a different function to the button. (Just after this update, the function will be assigned to AF mode selection.)
      (5)AF improvement in the Movie mode The optimized algorithm delivers a more natural and smooth AF action during movie recording.

    2. Improvements

      (1)Improved Shutter Speed Dial operation When the Shutter Speed Dial is set to T and the Shutter Type to Mechanical + Electronic, you can use the command dial to set a full range of exposure times from 30-1/32000sec. Previously, this was limited to 30-2 seconds. This is particularly useful when shooting in the portrait orientation with the Vertical Battery Grip VG-XT1 attached.
      (2)Exposure Compensation control in Manual You can use the Exposure Compensation dial to make exposure adjustments while shooting in the Manual exposure mode with the ISO Auto setting.
      (3)Finer lines on the framing grid enhances visibility The lines on the framing grid, which you can choose to display in the Screen Set-Up menu, have been made finer making it easier to view the subject.
      (4)Name of Silent mode changed to avoid confusion The Silent Mode has been renamed to „SOUND & FLASH OFF“ .

    3. Other

      (1)If you use the „Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 for Windows®Ver1.1″, it is required to be updated.
      Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 for Windows® Ver.1.1a Updater for Windows 8 / 8.1 / 7 SP1

Substantial firmware updates for the X-T1 (V4.0) – late June |
Fujifilm Global

Fujifilm Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) has announced that it will release a free firmware update for both the Fujifilm X-T1 and Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition in late June, 2015. The firmware introduces a new AF system with upgraded autofocus performance as well as an array of other improvements that reflect feedback from users. This update follows on from a previous major functionality improvement for the X-T1 introduced on December 18th, 2014 and shows that Fujifilm continues to listen to customer feedback to boost the performance of X-Series cameras, ensuring many years of continued use.

 

 

[ Firmware release date ]
Late June, 2015

[ Firmware version ]
FUJIFILM X-T1: Ver.4.00

[ Improvements with this firmware update ]

1. New AF System

  1. New AF system with Zone and Wide/Tracking modes for effortless capture of moving subjects
    The AF System complements the fast and accurate 49-single-point autofocus system with new Zone and Wide/Tracking modes, which use 77 autofocus points across a wider area to substantially improve the camera’s ability to capture moving subjects.
    The Zone mode allows users to choose a 3×3, 5×3 or 5×5 zone from the 77-point AF area. When combined with the AF-C continuous focusing mode, the camera continues tracking a subject at the center of the selected zone. The 3×3 and 5×3 zones at the center, in particular, offer extra-fast focusing with the use of the built-in phase detection pixels.
    In the Wide/Tracking mode, the camera displays the area in focus, identified automatically out of the 77-point AF area (Wide in the AF-S mode) and tracks the focus area’s subject across the entire 77-point AF area (Tracking in the AF-C mode). This makes it possible to maintain focus on a subject that moves vertically, horizontally, and back and forth.
  2. Improvement of AF accuracy
    Single-point AF divides the focus area into smaller sections to more accurately determine the distance to the subject for even greater focusing accuracy. The built-in phase detection pixels have the detection range of 0.5EV, an improvement from the previous 2.5EV, delivering phase detection AF performance that enables fast focusing in low-light conditions and on low-contrast subjects.
  3. Eye Detection AF
    The firmware update provides Fujifilm’s Eye Detection AF, which automatically detects and focuses on human eyes. The function allows you to easily focus on the eyes even in difficult conditions, e.g. when shooting a portrait wide open to obtain a beautiful bokeh background.
  4. Auto Macro mode
    The firmware update introduces the Auto Macro function, which automatically switches the camera into the Macro mode while maintaining the conventional AF speed. You no longer have to press the Macro button to initiate a close-up shot. This update eliminates the Macro function assigned to the Macro Button, allowing you to assign a different function to the button.
  5. AF improvement in the Movie mode
    The optimized algorithm delivers a more natural and smooth AF action during movie recording.

2. Other improvements

  1. Improved Shutter Speed Dial operation
    When the Shutter Speed Dial is set to T and the Shutter Type to Mechanical + Electronic, you can use the command dial to set a full range of exposure times from 30-1/32000sec. Previously, this was limited to 30-2 seconds. This means you can change the shutter speeds across a broader range without having to change camera position. This is particularly useful when shooting in the portrait orientation with the Vertical Battery Grip VG-XT1 attached.
  2. Exposure Compensation control in Manual.
    You can use the Exposure Compensation dial to make exposure adjustments while shooting in the Manual exposure mode with the ISO Auto setting.
  3. Finer lines on the framing grid enhances visibility
    The lines on the framing grid, which you can choose to display in the Screen Set-Up menu, have been made finer making it easier to view the subject.
  4. Name of Silent mode changed to avoid confusion
    The Silent Mode has been renamed to “SOUND & FLASH OFF”.
