Fujifilm Releases X-T2 and X-H1 Firmware Updates, Delays GFX and X-Pro2 to July

Fujifilm has two new firmware updates and a new ETA for others

Today, Fujifilm has announced the availability of the latest firmware updates for two of their flagship cameras, the [amazon_textlink asin=’B01I3LNMAM’ text=’X-T2′ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thephobl-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’9224b3bd-6f22-11e8-bca9-8d084a134e54′], and [amazon_textlink asin=’B079PTRNKK’ text=’X-H1′ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thephobl-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’9991a42d-6f22-11e8-b5bf-e93dd8465fc9′]. This comes after the updates were initially delayed by several weeks following issues that arose when the company originally attempted to release the X-T2 firmware. Those issues have since been resolved and along with the fixed X-T2 firmware version 4.10, the X-H1 also gets a fresh update to version 1.10.

But it was not all good news today from Fujifilm,. The company also announced they would be pushing the firmware updates to their [amazon_textlink asin=’B01MZARM64′ text=’GFX 50s’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thephobl-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’1cc3c2fd-6f23-11e8-a847-79822557fdd4′] and X-Pro2 cameras to July. Originally those updates were expected to be released at some point in June following the X-T2 and X-H1 updates, but now for unknown reasons, Fujifilm has decided to push them back. Fujifilm did not indicate when in July to expect those updates, only that they would come in July. So, the [amazon_textlink asin=’B01A8DUR74′ text=’X-Pro2′ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thephobl-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’25296b4d-6f23-11e8-ac41-2f4f94c5f60d’] version 5.0 update and the GFX 50s version 3.10 update could be available in as little as 3 weeks to as far out as 7 weeks.

As well, it appears that there will be another update in July for the X-H1, version 4.20, which will add the ‘select folder’ and ‘create folder’ feature originally expected to be fixed in version 4.1 but was instead removed. It appears as if something with that feature was causing problems on the X-H1 and the firmware update version 4.2, coming in July, will include a patch to restore that functionality in working order. So don’t get too comfy X-H1 owners, it appears another update is coming up real quick.

If you are a Fujifilm [amazon_textlink asin=’B01I3LNMAM’ text=’X-T2′ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thephobl-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’843f6b59-6f22-11e8-b522-cbae1d5b87bf’] or [amazon_textlink asin=’B079PTRNKK’ text=’X-H1′ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thephobl-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’8a9bfd2c-6f22-11e8-9117-9116947d62a0′] owner and you are looking to get your hands on these new firmware updates today you can head on over to the Fujifilm Firmware Update website today to grab them.
