X E2 Silver Front 18 55mm

Fujifilm has announced the upcoming release of firmware updates to four of its cameras. 

Premium interchangeable lens cameras the X-E2, X-E1 and X-Pro1, and the new X-T1 are all to get updates soon. 

For more information and to download the updates for your camera, take a look at the Fujifilm Support Page.

 

Updates for the X-E2 only (Version 3.00):

New Classic Chrome Film Simulation - The X Series' Film Simulation modes represent Fujifilm's wealth of experience in colour reproduction technology. “Classic Chrome”, which delivers subtle colours and beautifully muted tones reminiscent of vintage reversal film, has been newly added to the existing selection.

Interval timer shooting

The new Interval timer shooting function allows X-E2 users to capture time lapse photography. Set the starting time, the shooting interval (1 sec. to 24 hr.) and finally the number of frames (1 - 999), and the camera does the rest.

Enhanced wireless function for shooting from your iOS/Android smartphone or tablet devices

By downloading the free FUJIFILM Camera Remote*2 app to your smartphone or tablet devices, users can use the Remote Control function, which allows a wealth of control, even from a distance. This functionality is great for a wide variety of shots, including group photos, self-portraits and animals in their natural habitat.

 

Updates for the X-E2 (V3.00) , X-Pro1(V3.40) and X-E1 (V2.40) models:

AF+MF

“AF+MF” function enables seamless manual focusing. After half pressing the shutter to autofocus on the subject, fine adjustment can then be made using the manual focus ring.

Updates for the X-T1(Version 3.00): 

High-speed electronic shutter with a maximum speed of 1/32000sec

The FUJINON XF Lens series lineup includes a number of fast fixed focal length lenses which boast very high sharpness with the aperture wide open, producing excellent out of focus “bokeh”. However, fast apertures are difficult to use if the light is too bright, so to ensure users can create shallow depth-of-field effects, the camera is now equipped with a fully electronic shutter offering a maximum shutter speed of 1/32000sec. The mechanical shutter will not operate at all when any speed for the electronic shutter is selected, which also delivers a completely silent shooting experience; perfect for shots of sleeping children, pets, weddings, and more. In addition, it is possible to set the electronic shutter in 1/3 steps from a range of 1sec to 1/32000sec.

Shutter Sound

The shutter sound can be muted if desired. Use the new “SHUTTER SOUND” and “SHUTTER VOLUME” options in the setup menu to choose the type and volume of the sound made when the shutter is released.

Classic Chrome Film Simulation mode brings more creative power to the X Series

The X Series' Film Simulation modes represent Fujifilm's wealth of experience in colour reproduction technology. New to the suite of effects is Classic Chrome, which delivers subtle colours and beautifully muted tones reminiscent of vintage reversal film. Using Classic Chrome on cityscapes, for example, will give shots a historic feel, while fashion photos gain an emotive, nostalgic look. Classic Chrome strengthens the film simulation line up and enhances the creative power of the X-T1.

Natural Live View function is just like the naked eye

One of the great benefits of an electronic viewfinder is that 'what you see is what you get'; the final image is displayed in real-time so any Film Simulation modes or other effects can be checked while shooting. But users sometimes need to see colours close to how they're viewed with an optical finder, or to focus on shadow detail, which some high-contrast effects block out. To aid this, the Natural Live View function has been added and, when "PREVIEW PIC. EFFECT" is turned Off in the menu, an image close to the naked eye is displayed during live view.

EVF/LCD Color Control

“EVF COLOUR” and “LCD COLOUR” options in the setup menu to adjust the hue of the electronic viewfinder and LCD monitor.

Direct selection of AF area

The update will let users select the focus area using the 4-way controller, without pressing the Fn key.

Unlocked AE-L/AF-L Buttons

The function of the AE-L/AF-L button is currently locked, but will be interchangeable, depending on the user’s preference.

Variable Focus Area during MF

When working in Manual focus mode, the update will enable changing the size of the focus area during Instant AF with the AF-L button.

Direct selection of Macro mode

In Autofocus mode, the update will enable the Macro function to be turned on or off, without accessing the pop-up menu screen.

Q. Menu customisation

To make the Q Menu (used for quick access of frequently-used items) even more efficient, the update will allow its items and layout to be changed to the user’s preference.

New Video Frame rates (50P/25P/24P)

As well as the existing 60fps and 30fps selections, 50fps, 25fps and 24fps options will be available with the update. 50fps and 25fps allow video editing in the PAL regions, such as Europe, without converting the frame rate. 24fps offers a cinema-like view.

Manual Shooting in Video mode

The update will enable ISO sensitivity selection prior to shooting videos, as well as the ability to adjust aperture and shutter speed during movie recording.

Phase detection AF support for Instant AF

In Instant AF mode, which is operated by pressing the AF-L button during manual focusing, the update will enable Phase Detection AF, providing faster focusing speeds.

Interlocking of Metering and Focus areas

Users will be able to interlock the AF area position with the Metering area when Spot Metering mode is selected.

Expansion of shutter speed in Program Shift mode

In the current Program Shift mode, the slowest-speed setting is 1/4sec, but this will increase to a maximum of 4secs.

Add “Flash compensation”, “Shutter type”, “Preview Pic. Effect”, “Preview EXP./WB in Manual mode” and “Lock” in Function setting

Instax Printer Print

Photos can be directly sent from the camera to the Fujifilm instax SHARE Smartphone Printer to instantly print on Fujifilm Instant Color Film “instax mini”.

Lock Function

Add software lock function.

The update will let users prevent from the unexpected dial/button operation.

Three Custom White Balance

Expand the number of CUSTOM WHITE BALANCE options from one to three. By registering different conditions in advance of the shooting, users can change white balance conditions quickly.

Expand EVF/LCD displaying types in manual exposure mode

In manual exposure mode, the EVF/LCD displays a preview of your composition showing the selected settings.

The option to turn off preview exposure in manual mode is further enhanced with the addition of an option to turn off white balance preview.

The update will give users additional flexibility when using external flash equipment such as modelling lights of different colour temperatures.

AF+MF

“AF+MF” function enables seamless manual focusing. After half pressing the shutter to autofocus on the subject, fine adjustment can then be made using the manual focus ring.

PC tethered shooting support

New HS-V5 software (optional accessory) allows users to tether and control the camera from the PC and transfer images shot on the camera over to the PC automatically.
