It looks like Fujifilm's software engineers have been working overtime the past few weeks. Today, the company has released firmware updates for three of its X-series cameras: the brand new X-H1, as well as the older X-E3 and X100F. In all cases, the new software addresses some user-reported bugs and improves camera performance.

Version 1.20 of the XE-3 firmware is the biggest of the three and comes with the following improvements:

  • Support for Fujifilm X Raw Studio: camera users can now convert Raw files, including batch processing, with the free Fujifilm X Raw Studio software.
  • Backup and restoring of camera settings via Fujifilm X Acquire: when connecting the camera to a computer via USB, photographers can now use the Fujifilm X Acquire software to backup camera settings to a file and restore them. It is also possible to copy settings from one camera to another.
  • Compatibility with the Fujinon XC15-45mm F3.5-5.6 OIS PZ lens: when using this lens the focus ring function now switches automatically. In focus modes S and C it is used for Fine Zoom adjustment. In focus mode M it controls the manual focus. In addition the zoom position of the lens is now memorized when the camera is powered off and maintained while switching into playback mode.
  • Improved radio flash controller operation: users can now shoot with compatible third party studio flash units in high speed sync. or TTL mode, using radio controllers.
  • Enlarged and customizable display indicators and information: users can now enlarge indicators and shooting information displayed in the viewfinder or on the LCD monitor. You will also be able to customize the location of the information on the display.
  • Enhanced Bluetooth connectivity via Camera Remote app: with the Fujifilm Camera Remote app user can now update the camera firmware via bluetooth and remote-trigger compatible cameras.

Version 2.10 of the X100F firmware offers the same capability to enlarge and customize display information and backup and restore of camera settings via X Acquire as the update for the XE-3.

The update to firmware version 1.02 for the Fuji X-H1 is fairly minor, simply fixing a bug that could cause image files to be overwritten when an image folder is selected through the Select Folder function in the Setup menu.
