Fujifilm Releases New Firmware for X-T1, X Pro 2; Delays Update for X-T2

Fujifilm is staying true to the reputation and commitment they have to constantly updating and improving their cameras through firmware updates. Today the Japanese firm unveiled two new firmware updates, one for the X-T1 and one for the X-Pro2. Another update was also announced, but it was for the X-T2, and it was noted just to say that it has been pushed back to the end of November.

Version 5.00 firmware for the X-T1 mainly just adds compatibility for the Fujifilm EF-X500 speedlight, including the ability to assign flash specific functions to the quick menu and function buttons. These are the only noted features/changes in the new firmware the the X-T1.

In terms of the X-Pro2, the firmware update was similarly minor, fixing several issues with the camera namely an issue that caused the Nisson i40 speedlight to not fire, which is now resolved, and fixing some AF issues with the XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR. The other notable change in the X-Pro2 firmware to version 2.01 was a fix for some issues with the PC auto save function which the company has now resolved.

Owners interested in the X-T1 firmware update can pick it up here, and those interested in the X-Pro2 update can find it here.

Again, just to recap, the X-T2 firmware, which is expected to bring wireless tethering with Adobe Lightroom is delayed again, and is expected towards the end of November if the current timetable holds.
