Firmware upgrades have been applied to several of Fujfilm’s most noteworthy cameras to address various problems, flaws, and malfunctions and enhance overall performance.
These software downloads are now available for some of the brand’s most popular cameras, including the X100V, the X-S10, and the X-T4. The following paragraphs will provide an overview of their fundamentals and instructions on downloading each.
Installing any of Fuji’s camera firmware upgrades is a relatively straightforward and uncomplicated process. In most cases, you can get them to operate in your camera by putting the software packages onto an SD card and then installing them straight into your camera.
Additionally, Fujifilm provides guidelines on managing and periodically updating your device’s firmware.
It is important to note that even though these periodic firmware updates could seem like a boring little task, they are frequently significantly worth performing simply because many genuinely cure fundamental camera flaws that might arbitrarily impair photographic work. In contrast, it is being done in the field.
Another important reason for the firmware updates is to make specific Fujifilm cameras compatible with Fujifilm’s newest tripod grip, the Fujifilm TG-BT1. This grip comes with two new lens releases that can be controlled directly through the grip when attached to Fujifilm cameras that are compatible with the grip.
Fujinon recently released two new lens releases: the XF 18-120mm F4 LM PZ WR and the XC 15-45mm F3.5-5.6 OIS PZ. These types are great for creating streaming material, vlogging content, and vacation videos since they can be controlled by the tripod handle that is located above them.
Now, let’s go into the specifics of the firmware for each camera model.
Fujifilm X-T4 update ver. 1.70, Fujifilm X-T3 update ver. 4.50, Fujifilm X-S10 update ver. 2.60
The software that Fujifilm makes available for all of these cameras gives the same enhancements, which may be summarized as follows:
Compatibility with Fujifilm’s TG-BT1 Tripod Grip enables you to connect both the tripod and one of the cameras above to your mobile device via Bluetooth so that you can switch between shooting still images and videos while holding the grip.
Controlling the electronic zoom on the XF above 18-120mmF4 LM PZ WR and XC 15-45mmF3.5-5.6 OIS PZ (compatible as of January 2023) using the control buttons on the new Fujifilm grip will be possible beginning in January 2023.
Modifications to the overall performance, as well as general minor bugs
Fujifilm X-T30 update ver. 1.50, Fujfilm X-T30II update ver. 1.20
Bluetooth connectivity that is compatible with the TG-BT1 Tripod Grip allows you to choose between shooting still images and video straight through the grip.
Several more small errors have been corrected.
However, the firmware changes that make these cameras compatible with Fuji’s tripod grip do not include support for zoom adjustment through the grip. Fujifilm has not explained why this was left out.
The following cameras will get firmware upgrades, although these changes are not particular to Fuji’s new TG-BT1 Tripod Grip.
Fujifilm X100V update ver. 2.13
This update fixes an issue in the camera’s firmware that prevented the battery from charging while the “USB POWER SUPPLY SETTING” was in the “OFF” position.
Various minor errors have been corrected.
Fujfilm X-Pro3 upgrade ver. 1.33
The battery charging problem has been resolved using the same bug fix for the X100V’s firmware.
Fixes for a variety of additional minor bugs.
Fujifilm X-E4 update ver. 1.33
Correction made to a flaw in the camera’s firmware that caused horizontal lines to be superimposed on RAW photographs when the “SHOOTING STAND BY MODE” setting was in the “ON” position.
A correction was made to a flaw in the camera’s firmware that caused the ISO sensitivity to shift when the camera’s power was cycled on and off.
Other minor corrections to bugs
Fujifilm GFX50SII update ver. 1.11
A fault in the firmware that caused RAW photo development to fail has been fixed. This bug occurred when the “CLARITY” setting for RAW photographs or for “FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO” was set to any other value than Zero (0).
An issue in the camera’s firmware that might put transverse lines in RAW format photographs if the “SHOOTING STAND BY MODE” setting was turned to “ON” has been fixed.
