Fuji Firmware Updates | X-Pro2 Gets 4k, Tethering, And A Little Something For X100F, X-T20, X-T1

By Holly Roa on December 23rd 2017

Fujifilm, famous for their consistent ‘kaizen’ updates that keep their cameras freshly interesting, has released a new batch of updates, and the winners this time around are X-Pro2 owners. The cameras included in this most recent round of firmware updates are the X-Pro2, X100F, X-T20, and X-T1.

The big exciting news is that will have X-Pro2 owners celebrating is that this particular camera has been bestowed the abilities to shoot 4K video and to tether, both wirelessly and via USB. It’s worth noting that the 4K capture will not apply to HDMI-out recording.

But, that’s not all. The X-Pro2 has also received an updated autofocus tracking algorithm, which will allow for tracking in AF-C that’s twice as fast and the ability to land focus on objects 50% smaller, plus a handful of other updates.

The X-Pro2, X100F, and X-T1 are all getting support for the Instax SHARE SP-3 square instant film printer while the X-Pro2 and X100F pick up support for Fujifilm X Acquire and Fujifilm X Raw Studio, and the newer X-T20 gets a mere bug fix.

In an age where 4K can make or break public opinion on a camera, the fact that Fuji is willing to open the capabilities up in cameras that did not possess it at release should win them some public opinion points, not to mention their dedication to teaching their old dogs new tricks. For most other manufacturers, you’d be looking at a new body to get the types of updates we’re seeing for the X-Pro2.
