Another firmware release, this time from Fujifilm for its FinePix S8000fd superzoom. Version 1.01 firstly fixes issues relating to 4GB memory cards - namely the inability to transfer data from FinePixViewer to the camera when connected. The release also corrects bugs present in high speed continuous shooting mode when using Auto ISO. Previously the camera would occasionally record low light scenes as the proverbial 'black cat in a coal mine' and rather confusingly reported ISO 640 as 64. Click through for the links.

      (In some shooting condition, dark or black images are captured even in gloomy scenes.
