23 Mar Comprehensive firmware upgrades for X-T2 and X-Pro2
Source: Fujifilm X Blog
Great news for Fujifilm X-T2 and X-Pro2 owners. Thanks to two new firmware upgrades – one at the end of this month, the other by the end of May, your cameras are about to get even better!
This latest round of upgrades further underline our ‘kaizen’ philosophy of continuous product development and rather than package these in a new model (like some manufacturers) we’d rather make them available to you immediately, free of charge. We’re nice like that.
A total of 33 functional and operational changes will be made over the two upgrades. Some apply to both our flagship models, whereas others are model specific. Either way, we know that you will welcome the updates, which will boost your user experience even further. Once released, you’ll be able to download the firmware upgrade HERE. Read on to find out the delights that await on X-T2 version 2.00 and X-Pro2 version 3.00, which will be available by the end of this month…
Changes to both models
The new firmware upgrades extend a range of existing features to provide additional versatility. The ability to shoot in the RAW file format, for example, is extended to all Bracketing functions, not simply AE Bracketing, plus RAW can also be used when shooting with the Advanced Filter modes. Extendable ISOs will now include ISO125 and ISO160 settings while the longest exposure selectable in the T mode is increased from 30 seconds to 15 minutes. An AUTO option has also been added for the minimum shutter speed setting when you’re shooting using an ISO Auto setting. With this option selected, the X-T2 and X-Pro2 will automatically select a minimum shutter speed based on the focal length of the lens in use.
AF performance in both models is already impressive, but these updates make it even better. Face Detection AF is faster and moving subjects are easier to track thanks to reduced focus hunting in the AF-C mode. If you want pin-point focusing accuracy while using Single Point AF, the additional of an even smaller focusing point will be welcomed, while manual focusers will no doubt be pleased to see the ability to move the position of the focus frame during enlargement; a feature which is now also available in the AF-S mode.
If you’re more of a videographer, re-focusing can now be done during movie recording either through a half press of the shutter release, or by pressing the assigned AF-On button.
Ever been frustrated that you can either have the Eye Sensor operational, or the LCD, but not both? Well, be frustrated no more as the Eye…
