FinePix X100 Firmware Update Ver.1.11

The firmware update Ver.1.11 incorporates the following issues.

  • 1.Performance of auto focus at near distance has been improved.
  • 2.When "SHADW TONE" is set to "MEDIUM SOFT" or "SOFT", live view in LCD may display with abnormal pattern (so-called "solarisation") just after pressing the shutter halfway. This update improves the phenomena.
  • 3.When self-timer mode is selected, focus and exposure (AE/AF) are set just after pressing the shutter button and these settings are remained for the final shutter releasing.
