It was a pretty big deal in the Fujifilm community when the company announced that a new tethering application would be made available for the X-T2 and after a good wait that firmware was finally released this morning.
As noted above, the headline feature for this Fujifilm X-T2 firmware update is the addition of tethering compatibility with Fujifilm’s upcoming X-T2 tethering program. This will give X-T2 photographers the ability to connect their X-T2 to their computer and shoot images directly from the camera onto the computer. This has been a long-requested feature from studio-based Fujifilm photographers.
But that’s not all.
In typical Fujifilm fashion, the firmware update also includes a number of bugs fixes aimed at improving the usability of the X-T2 in specific situations, as well as fixing the X-T2’s compatibility with the Nissin i40 Speedlight.
