New firmware updates available for multiple Fujifilm camera models

Kaizen

A few weeks ago Fujifilm released a large number of updates for nearly all of the X-Series cameras as follows:

  • X-Pro1
  • X-E1
  • X-E2
  • X-T1
  • X-A1
  • X-M1
  • XQ1

The only X Series cameras missing fom the list (i.e. didn’t get an update) are the X-100, X-100s, X-10, X-20 and the XQ1’s predecessor the XF1. Most of the updates wouldn’t apply to all of them, however there are a few weird omissions.

Full details of the updates provided by the updates can be found on Fujifilm’s website here.

To help I have created a table that compares the options for the main interchangeable lens X-Series cameras as follows:

Camera: X-Pro1 X-E1 X-E2 X-T1
Feature:
Firmware Version 3.30 2.30 2.10 1.10
XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Compatibility Yes Yes Yes Yes
Improvement of “Exposure compensation / exposure indicator” in EVF No No No Yes
Improvement of Movie Record Button No No No Yes
Fix for Interval Timer Setting No No No Yes
Change of Aperture Display for Zoom Lenses Yes Yes Yes No
Direct print capability with SP-1 Printer No No No No

Note: XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Compatibility also applies to the X-A1 and the X-M1, the capability to directly print to the SP-1 printer is provided to these cameras as well as the XQ1 compact camera. I’m not sure why this hasn’t been provided to any of the other WiFi capable X-Series cameras at this time.

I always recommend waiting a few days before installing firmware updates in case there are any bugs. However, in this instance there has been no reports (that I have heard) of any issues with these updates.

Full details of the update are as follows (taken from Fujifilm’s website here):

X-T1

Version number : 1.10 (current 1.00)

Details of changes:

  • Addition of compatibility with “XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6R OIS WR”
  • Improvement of “Exposure compensation/exposure indicator” in EVF
    Values are added to the scales of the indicator for better visibility
  • Improvement of Movie-record button operability
  • 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.
