S3 firmware 2.16 -- AWB fixed?

Hi there,

I've read on the Fuji website, spoken to Fuji tech support, and spoken to others... the latest firmware upgrade (2.16) fixed the S3's CWB & operation with Nikon speedlights. Since I upgraded my firmware, those issues seem to be resolved (I got really nasty orange-pumpkin skin with Nikon speedlights previously) and as well, AWB seems to work almost perfectly. I say "almost" as shooting in shade is still a little "cool" (i.e. blue), but the colour cast is easily removed in PS. When I compare shots with AWB and CWB in non-shade conditions, they are identical and look great!

Has anyone noticed that AWB seems to work better after upgrading to 2.16? Did Fuji "sneak" in an AWB update and not tell anyone?

Would love to hear other S3 owners' experiences...

Cheers,
Fred
