Fujifilm GFX100S Firmware “Still Being Evaluated” and GFX50SII Firmware 2.01 Released

Fujifilm has released the new firmware for the Fujifilm GFX50SII, which fixes the bug with the exposure compensation button.

The Fujifilm GFX100S suffers the same issue after the latest firmware, but so far it has not yet received the bug fix firmware. Fujifilm writes:

Revised firmware for FUJIFILM GFX100S is still being evaluated, although it was planned to be released on May 31.
We will release the revised version A.S.A.P. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

In the meantime, here is the workaround (which some might even prefer).

Fujifilm Finds Temporary Work Around for GFX100S/GFX50SII Exposure Compensation Bug (via FujiRumors ;) )

Yesterday Fujifilm released a statement, where they acknowledge the exposure compensation bug introduced on Fujifilm GFX100S and GFX50SII with the latest firmware and they said a fix will be out on May 31.

Of course FujiRumors reported about it yesterday, but we also suggested a temporary workaround based on a recommendation that came from one of our fellow Fujifilm GFX users members here.

Well, it looks like Fujifilm read our article and has now updated their statement suggesting the very same workaround.

The exposure compensation can be used by changing the [EXPO. COMP. BUTTON SETTING] to [ON/OFF SWITCH], which will be the temporary workaround until the revised firmware is released.
*The menu flow to make the above setting is as follows.

Always happy to help, Fujifilm :)

And thanks again to our amazing Fujifilm GFX group and Carlos in this case! You made it into an official Fujifilm press note.

Fujifilm Removes New Firmware for GFX100S and GFX50SII and Promises Fix on May 31 (and Work Around Solution)

Yesterday Fujifilm has released lots of firmware updates for 13 Fujifilm cameras (including some major updates!!).

Two of those cameras were the Fujifilm GFX100S and the GFX50SII.

Sadly, after updating, many FujiRumors readers started to report to me that they were now incurring in issues with the new firmware.

Well, Fujifilm has now pulled off the firmware for those two cameras and said they will release a firmware fix on May 31.

Fujifilm writes:

We have confirmed a problem with the exposure compensation function not working properly.
Therefore, we have removed the download button for this version.
We will release fixed firmware on May 31.

As soon as the new firwmare is online, I will report about it on FujiRumors.

Also, fellow Fujifilm GFX group member Carlos shared a workaround and he shared it in our group.

“I found a solution or “work-around” to Firmware (FW) 2.0 disabling the Exposure Compensation button on my GFX100s. The solution “is in the manual”, as some repeatedly and annoyingly say.
Go to the menu, and instead of choosing “+/- when pressing” (which was the default setting from the factory set-up), now choose “ +/- on/off switch”.
With this option, you will press on your camera the +/- Exp Comp button, then turn the back wheel to make a change, and then press the +/- Exp Comp button to deactivate the back wheel from altering the ExpComp. If you don’t deactivate it, turning the back wheel will not alter your shutter speed. “

We remind you that Fujifilm removed also the XApp from the App stores due to issues with the display. A fix is on the way also there, but you can continue to use the App with no problem if you have already installed it.

Fujifilm GFX100S and GFX50SII Reviews by Sean Reid

Sean Reid at has recently published two new Fuji G system reviews.

The first is a detailed 18 page side-by-side field and studio test of the GFX 100S and GFX 50S II. It looks at autofocus speed, buffer capacity, resolution, vignetting, color rendering and various other aspects of these cameras’ performance. The second is a full field and studio review of the GF 50/3.5 tested on the GFX 100S and GFX50S II.

I asked Reid if he could share an aspect of his test results that might be particularly interesting to Fuji Rumors readers. He noted this:

When photographers think about using a very high resolution (in terms of MP count) camera with a given lens, it is common to be concerned about whether the camera will reveal weaknesses in that lens. But the GF 50/3.5 actually performs even better, off axis for example, with the GFX 100S than the GFX50S II.

Reid has previously reviewed many other Fuji G and X system cameras & lenses and the article topics are all listed here:

Reid Reviews, which has been published since 2005, is unusual in that it accepts no advertising and instead is accessible only by paid subscription.
