Firmware Update

Firmware Upgrade Touit E-Mount | ZEISS United Kingdom

A firmware update to Version 02 is now available for the Touit 2.8/50M with E-mount. It corrects the following behaviour that may have occurred with the previous lens firmware version with particular camera menu setting and in particular situations:
 
• clearly noticeable shutter release delays when pressing the release button with activated flash
• ‘hunting’ for the focus point with the camera in AF-C mode

Leica M typ 240 firmware 2.0.1.5: the end of the beginning |
The Machine Planet

About a week ago, Leica Camera AG finally released the most recent version of firmware for the M digital camera. This, of course, provoked many angry comments from non-Leica users about how backward Leicas are. It could be said, though that people who buy on specifications, technology, and making reasonable and difficult-to-question choices will buy something like a Lexus. People who are gunning for a different feel and are less risk-adverse might go for Jaguars. The functional differences between a Leica M and, say, any other 24mp camera are fairly minimal. The sensors, imaging process and electronics are very similar. The big difference is in metering and focusing systems. There no way, whether by firmware or otherwise, to make a rangefinder-equipped camera emulate a DSLR with its own equally primitive mirror and phase-detect system or a mirrorless with its contrast-detect focus. And although one could always make the argument that 1,000-segment metering is very accurate, it is not the experience of this writer that it is appreciably more accurate than five segments. And that is not, in itself markedly superior to centerweighted averaging and a modicum of human intervention……

Firmware V1.10 for X-T1 | Fujifilm Global

The firmware update Ver. 1.10 from Ver. 1.00 incorporates the following issues:

  1. Addition of compatibility with “XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR”
    To ensure that autofocus performs as expected, upgrade the firmware for the camera.
  2. Improvement of “Exposure compensation/exposure indicator” in EVF
    Values are added to the scales of the indicator for better visibility.
  3. Improvement of Movie-record button operability
    To avoid an accidental movie shooting, the delayed time will become longer between the moment you press the button and a movie shooting starts or ends.
  4. The phenomenon is fixed that images are not recorded with the set interval when “INTERVAL” in “INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING” is set to 5 sec or less. In this case, the setting of “IMAGE DISP.” in “SCREEN SET-UP” will change to “OFF” automatically.

Precaution

  1. If firmware updating fails, the camera may no longer operate correctly in some cases. Carefully read the notes provided here.
  2. Always use the fully-charged battery when updating the firmware as a basic manner. Never turn the camera off or attempt to use any of the camera controls while the firmware is being overwritten.
  3. Firmware updating requires approximately 90 seconds.
  4. Once the firmware has been updated, some data of the previous version cannot be restored.

Re-review: Revisiting the Fujifilm X-E2 with Firmware Version 2.0 |
Bigheadtaco

Recently I’ve been spending time perusing through the comment sections on DPReview.com and other photo websites, just to get a feel for what’s going on out there. As a reviewer, we often get immersed in our own view of how things are and should be, so its important to leave our bubble once in a while to explore the outside world. I do follow the main websites and YouTube channels to see what other reviewers are saying, but what’s it like on the street? There seems to be an US versus THEM attitude, with endless debates over sensor size (M43, APS-C, FF), and camera styles (DLSR, mirrorless, retro, modern, ILC, P&S, etc.). This ongoing ‘battle’ shows how segmented the market has become, even more so than in the past. This has also affected the manufacturers, trying to predict what photographers want and adjusting their product line to satisfy their market share, and hopefully increase it. This isn’t always a bad thing, and Fuji has decided to add a bit of variety to their X-series line-up. A few months back I reviewed the Fujifilm XE-2 and felt it was the best X-series body I had reviewed up to that point… until they announced the X-T1. It was quite the departure from the direction Fuji was taking their mirrorless cameras, but it was a nice change. Although the X-T1 had basically the same sensor and processor as the X-E2, the style and ergonomics of the camera was completely different………
