Detail of the update

The firmware update Ver. 2.20 from Ver. 2.10 incorporates the following issue

  • 1.Addition of compatibility with "XF56mmF1.2 R".
  • Improvement of AE accuracy with "XF56mmF1.2 R".

The firmware update Ver. 2.10 from Ver. 2.00 incorporates the following issues:

  • Regarding operations of items below from 1 through 5, refer to "X-E1 New Features Guide" in this website.
  • <Notice>
    In this firmware upgrade, all the camera settings including date will be reset to the factory setting.
  • 1.New functionality allowing you to edit image file names
    An image file name (DSCF***) is automatically allocated to each picture when shooting, this can now be changed to your file name of choice.* This added functionality is useful when organizing the images after shooting, and sorting the images into groups.
  • * It can be changed to a 4-letter file name when selecting "sRGB" and a 3-letter file name when selecting "Adobe RGB" for the color space.
  • Edit image
  • 2.See the exposure setting in live-view and histogram
    The images and histogram will reflect current exposure levels (with the shutter speed and aperture set during manual exposure also displayed on the image). In scenarios where the live view and the final shot will appear differently, eg: when using flash, this setting can be turned off.
  • 3.Change of numbering for images shot using continuous shooting
    When shooting using continuous shooting, only the first image is currently displayed in full screen and subsequent frames are displayed in small on the bottom right, and the file number was set as "S+7-digit number". With the new firmware, all frames in continuous shooting are displayed as full screen shots in playback. The file number has also been altered to follow numerically as per standard single shots, thereby allowing uniform management of images after shooting.
  • 4.Aperture and shutter speed can be changed once AE lock is selected
    The aperture or shutter speed can be changed while maintaining exposure (EV value) with the AE lock button. The photographer has the ability to tweak settings down to the very last moment before shooting.
  • 5.The default and maximum sensitivity and minimum shutter speed can be set when ISO AUTO is selected
    When selecting "AUTO" in the ISO setting, users can also set standard ISO, Maximum ISO and a low-speed shutter limit. The low-speed shutter limit has been extended to 1/500 seconds.
  • 6.Improvement of RAW file conversion function
    When developing RAF images in-camera using the built-in RAW file converter, the firmware upgrade improves the flow by taking you back to the original RAF image once the conversion has been done, whereas before it left you with the converted JPG file on screen and the user had to go back to the next RAF file manually.

The firmware update Ver.2.00 from Ver.1.06 incorporates the following issue

  • 1.Improvement of AF speed on most existing XF lenses.
  • The updated algorithm will enable AF speed to become faster with the following XF lenses:

  • XF18mmF2 R
  • XF35mmF1.4 R
  • XF60mmF2.4 R Macro
  • XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R LM OIS.
  • <Note> 
  • To enjoy this improvement, firmware upgrade of those XF lenses are also required.
  • 2."Focus Peak Highlight" function for manual focusing is added.
  • The function, which features on FUJIFILM X100S and X20, is added and assists accurate and sensitive manual focusing by enhancing the outline of your subject in high contrast.
    * With this update, "Focus Peak Highlight" function is selected as a default setting.

And "MF ASSIST" is added in SHOOTING MENU where you can select "HIGH" and "LOW" in "Focus Peak Highlight" and "STANDARD".
  • 3.Improvement of the method to switch magnification during manual focusing.
  • Press the "Command dial" to activate image magnification during manual focusing and then turning the dial in either right or left direction will enable you to alternate the magnification of 3 times and 10 times.
  • 4.Improvement of focus accuracy in various scenes.
  • The focus detection algorithm is improved to provide more accurate focus for low contrast subjects and scenes containing horizontal stripes.
