Firmware for X-E3 and X-T2
1

Noticed when I used the app to use some live view shooting, it told me there was updated firmware for my X-E3.  Mainly seems to focus on the new 50mm f/1 lens, but it also had a section for 'bug fixes'.  I went ahead and applied it to both my X-E3 and X-T2.

Just letting people know firmware is out there in case you want to check it out!

Re: Firmware for X-E3 and X-T2

Thank you for information.

X-E3:

If you have small icons on LCD then you can circularly toggle three different behaviours by DISP/BACK button: (1) icons with live view > (2) live view without icons > (3) detailed info without live view.

If you have large icons then (2) is the same as (1). This bug isn't fixed.

The X-T2, amongst others, has gotten a fix for the exposure stepping when shooting video. Here's a test I have made with the X-H1:

I've been trying to download fujifilm firmware but I always get a message to choose an app to open the file! Which app is used to open this firmware?

What browser are you using?  Sounds like it's trying to open the DAT file, not save it.  You just need to save it so you can transfer it to your SD Card.

I am using google chrome. I tick the agreement, then press download, then it downloads it to Gimp ! From where I can't open it of course! This must sound confusing.

Does the file appear in your downloads folder?

Yes but with Gimp icon. And then on pressing open it goes to Gimp and again of course Gimp doesn't know what the file is.

Don't try to open a firmware file.

Copy it to the root directory of your SD card.

I trust you know the rest of the procedure...
