Fujifilm’s latest firmware updates put its recently-released X-A5 camera on firmware V. 1.10, while the X-A20 goes to V. 1.11 and the X-A3 to V. 2.1.
The new firmware for the X-A5 provides the following improvements:
1. Introducing a new PDAF algorithm.Applying the newly developed PDAF algorithm first featured on the Fujifilm X-T100. The improvement in autofocus speed and accuracy ensures that you capture those beautiful photographic moments quicker.
2. Extended movie recording time.The optimised movie processing algorithm extends the individual movie recording time up to approximately 30 minutes in any movie quality. Note: Although movie recording will continue without interruption when the file size reaches 4GB, subsequent footage will be recorded to a separate file which must be viewed separately.
3. Initial setting of ISO is changed to “AUTO” from “200” when switching to P, S, A, M, and Adv mode.
4. Visibility on the LCD is improved during CL shooting.
5. Improved HDMI output usability.This upgrade eliminates the time limitation.
6. Graphic interface is modified when the main LCD monitor is inverted by 180 degrees.
7. The phenomenon is fixed that in rare cases, INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING stops.
