Fujifilm has released firmware updates for its X-T100 and X-A5 cameras, adding new features and providing several bug fixes.
Firmware version 1.10 for the X-T100 and firmware version 1.20 for the X-A5 add two new Advanced Filters: Rich & Fine and Monochrome [NIR]. The Rich & Fine filter is designed to increase colour saturation and add slight vignette and is targeted towards for food and still life photography. The ‘Monochrome [NIR]’ filter simulates the look of near-infrared photography through selective toning. Both cameras also gain a SQUARE MODE, which enables users to switch to 1:1 format with a single flick on the touchscreen. It provides better compatibility with social media networks that have standardised on the 1:1 format. Both cameras also benefit from improved autofocus accuracy in AF-C mode when the shutter is half-pressed as well as a fix for a bug that caused the highlight warning to appear in the Info display. Other ‘slight defects’ have been addressed in both cameras.
The X-T100 gains an additional fix making initial ISO setting change to AUTO when switching between P, S, A, M and Adv. modes. There is also a fix for a bug that could shift the AF frame in the navigation window in the EVF from the set position when enlarging the focus position display.
