Fujifilm releases firmware updates for X-Pro2, X-Pro1 and several lenses

· 6.October.2016

Fujifilm announced today a free firmware update (ver. 2.00) for the X-Pro2. The new autofocus algorithm, that is already implemented on the Fujifilm X-T2 now makes its way to the X-Pro2 as well. The only exception are the AF-C Custom Settings functions.As a result, more accurate autofocus is now possible, and the AF tracking in AF-C mode will be improved. The number of focus point will be increased from 77 to 91 points (13×7) and from 273 to 325 points (25×13) to improve framing.

Other improvements coming with the 2.00 firmware include:

  • compatibility with the new hot-shoe mount flash EF-X500 will enable wireless multi-flash lighting with TTL control up to three groups and high-speed flash sync.
  • AUTO POWER OFF will now have 15 sec, 30 sec, and 1 min. options. AUTO POWER SAVE function, which was previously only available in ECONOMY mode, is now available as an option in HIGH PERFORMANCE and STANDARD modes to allow users to minimize battery power consumption.
AF point position interlocked with parallax will be displayed to provide a more accurate and easier-to-use Optical Viewfinder even when Corrected AF frame function is set to OFF.
