Fujifilm will be releasing a firmware update for the Fujifilm X-T3 mirrorless camera mid-December 2019 and with it will come additional features and operability improvement.


The upcoming 3.10 update will enable controls for video recording from Gimbal / Drone via USB communications and Fujifilm also plans to deploy this function to the Fujifilm X-T30, as well as other models. Fujifilm has also confirmed that it is communication with SZ DJI Technology and ZHIYUN about their plans to release compatible products. 

This firmware adds the following function to complement the current support for still image shooting via USB communications:

  • Starting and ending video recording
  • Adjusting exposure settings (exposure mode, shutter speed, aperture, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation) for video recording
  • Making manual focus adjustments

A further firmware update in January 2020 (version 3.20) will bring autofocus enhancement and other improvements to the X-T3 which includes:

  • Improving the tracking performance of the eye AF frame, making it easier to attain accurate autofocus on the eyes
  • Improving face-detection performance when there are faces of different sizes within the same frame, making it easier to attain accurate autofocus
  • Improving autofocus capability on a foreground subject even when there is a mixture of foreground and background subjects within a frame, causing the foreground subject to go out of focus, e.g. when shooting flowers against a busy background

Plus, the number of pictures that can be saved in a folder on an SD card will be increased from 999 to 9,999 pictures.
