Fujifilm has updated 14 of its X-series cameras to improve AF accuracy with the XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro lens.
The cameras affected include the X-A1, X-A2, X-A3, X-A10, X-E1, X-E2, X-E2S, X-M1, X-Pro1, X-T1 and X-T10. New updates also add support for the recently-released Instax Share SP-3 for these cameras and the GFX 50S, X-T2 and X-T20. The GFX 50S and X-T2 also gain compatibility with Fujifilm X Acquire version 1.7 for Windows or Mac and the new Fujifilm X Raw Studio version 1.0 on Macintosh. the Windows version of this software is still to be released. The GFX 50S gains a new Eye Sensor + LCD Image Display view mode which allows image preview through the viewfinder, but switches back to the LCD monitor for image review. It also gains the ability for users to disable the command dial’s 1/3 EV increments to reduce potential for unintended exposure adjustments as well as the ability to prevent the shutter from being released without a card in the camera. There are also two new reduced brightness settings for the viewfinder to make it easier to shoot at night. The X-T2 gains access to an RGB histogram and a blinking highlight clipping warning via a function button and improved live previewing.
The final upgrade is for the instax Square SQ10. Version 2.0 of the firmware improves autofocusing and provides the ability to print images after they have been modified in external software. Users can also access a new Part Colour function and several other minor modifications.
