Fujifilm is proud to announce the release of a new firmware update for the FUJIFILM X10, premium compact digital camera. Fujifilm will release the new firmware in response to a large number of requests from the camera's existing users. Fujifilm has listened carefully to this feedback since its launch in autumn 2011. The update will add two new functions, i.e. "Advanced Filter" and "Q (Quick) Menu" function.
(1) Advanced Filter
The update will add the "Advanced Filter" function to the camera's Adv. (Advanced) Mode to enable the user to create unique photographic effects. Choosing from six special filters in 11 patterns, users can check the effect of individual filters on the LCD monitor whilst taking shots.
(2) Q (Quick) Menu function
The update will also introduce the "Q (Quick) Menu", a popular feature found in the premium interchangeable lens camera the FUJIFILM X-Pro1. Updating the firmware will assign a Quick menu function to the "RAW" button on the back of the camera body. As a result pressing the 'RAW' button will launch the Q Menu so users can directly access frequently-used shooting settings. This function gives a list view of the most popular photography settings required during a photo shoot, including ISO, White Balance and Film Simulation.
To change any of the settings, use the Selector button at the back to select the applicable item, and then use the Sub-Command Dial or Main-Command Dial to change it to the desired setting.
Launch date of the dedicated firmware:
5th October 2012
