If you shoot Fujifilm, no doubt you already knew that today was coming. The day of reckoning, the great firmware drop of 2014. Today, Fujifilm dropped new firmware for four cameras including the X-T1, X-E2, X-Pro1, and X-E1.

Fujifilm X-T1 Firmware 3.00 Update

By far the biggest and most impressive firmware update comes in the form of version 3.00 of the X-T1 firmware. This brings several new features and functions to the camera, to the point that you are almost getting a new camera all together.

Headlining the X-T1 update is the addition of an electronic shutter, allowing you to shoot at shutter speeds of up to 1/32,000th. But the updates on the X-T1 to don’t end there. In addition to the electronic shutter, users can now:

  • Turn Off/Modify Shutter Sound Volume
  • Classic Chrome Film Simulation mode
  • ‘Natural Live View’, Which makes the EVF emulate an OVF
  • Up to 3 Custom White Balance Settings
  • Tethered Shooting Support
  • Q-Menu Customization
  • Direct Selection AF Area Using the 4 way controller
  • AF+MF Mode

Those are just some of the highlight feature additions to the X-T1. In total, there are 27 updates/additions to the X-T1 in firmware version 3.00. Like I said before, it’s almost like you are getting a whole new camera.

If you have an X-T1 and want to update your firmware, you can find the instructions and download the firmware file from the Fujifilm website here. I just updated mine this morning and it took me all of about 5 minutes.
