NEW firmware which improves the performance of the original FUJIFILM X100

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) will soon be releasing a free, dedicated firmware update for the X100 camera which will offer a number of significant improvements to the performance of the FUJIFILM X100. The FUJIFILM X100 was the first ever model in Fujifilm’s premium X camera range.

Since the launch of the X100 in March 2011, FUJIFILM has received feedback and requests from X100 users. The firmware update being announced today takes on board many of those requests and drastically improves the performance of the autofocus and manual focus functions and offers additional convenience to users who update their FUJIFILM X100 to the latest version.

New Firmware release date:
18th October, 2013

Main contents of the firmware update
1. Improvement of AF function
(1) Improvement of AF speed
Approximately 20% faster AF speed is offered in various conditions such as bright scenes, dark scenes and changed focus distance compared to the previous firmware version.

(2) Improvement of close-up focus performance
The focus distance from the lens surface before switching to macro mode is about 30% shorter compared to previous firmware.

2. Improved manual focus operation
(1) Addition of the “Focus Peak Highlight” function for manual focusing
The “Focus Peak Highlight” function, which features on the FUJIFILM X100S and X20 cameras, has been added via this firmware update. It assists accurate and sensitive manual focusing by enhancing the outline of your subject in high contrast.

(2) Improved operability
To make it easy to see what is in focus, the “Focus Peak Highlight” function displays the area in focus in a shallow depth of field, using open aperture, so that the rest of the photo is blurred out.
  
3. Improved Operability
(1)Faster start-up time
The camera start-up time has been shortened by approximately 0.2 seconds.*1

(2) Selecting Focus Area operability
Previously, the focus area was selected while holding the AF button on the back. With the new firmware, pressing the AF button toggles the focus area selection screen, and the area of your choice can then be selected.

*1:QUICK START mode [OFF]
