Fuji announces firmware updates for X-series cameras

Posted on by Mike Evans

Fuji's barnstorming X-T1 will get an electronic shutter speed of up to 1/32,000sec in the latest firmware update which will be available on December 18. Firmware v3.0 will bring optional silent operation with the mechanical shutter disabled when electronic is selected.

Among other changes are improvements to manual focus, a classic chrome film simulation, a natural live view function "just like the naked eye", and separate EVF/LCD colour control. For a full list of improvements see Fujifilm's press release here.

Many of the same improvements, but not the fast electronic shutter, will be included in simultaneous updates for the X-E1, X-E2 and X-Pro 1 cameras. Full details here.
