Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware Update in Spring/Summer will Bring “a Significant Number” of Fujifilm X-T4 features to X-T3

We just had to debunk a rumor, about an imminent arrivial of Fujifilm X-T3 firmware 4.0.

We confirm, the firmware is NOT coming soon, hence the screenshot you see in this post with the firmware update list, is 100% fake. Fujifilm is NOT currently editing the firmware page to release a new firmware very soon.

Here is the rumor we received from sources (thanks):

  a significant number of the new features in X-T3 successor will be introduced to X-T3 via firmware updates in the spring/summer

So, there will be eventually one, but the wait is definitely longer, and Fujifilm is NOT editing their firmware page right now, as the firmware has still to be developed. So no need to format your SD-Card, fellow X-T3 users ;).

But the day the firmware comes, what could be the features? Easy to upgrade should be:

  • digital image stabilization
  • new film simulations Classic Negative and Bleach Bypass
  • AF Range limiter, Clarity adjustment, handheld HDR feature
  • 240 fps

But that’s all just speculation from my side. Nobody knows the precise features yet.

The Fujifilm X-T4 will be announced February 25/26 (depending on your time zone here)

FAKE: No Imminent Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware 4.0 Update Coming

The screenshot above showing a Fujifilm X-T3 firmware 4.0 has been sent to me by so many FR readers today, that I simply must take position on it, or my phone will keep up ringing with messages about this firmware.

The screenshot has been shared on fujirumors comments here (original post on dpreview, but since then been removed).

So let me say it clearly: there is NO imminent firmware 4.0 for Fujifilm X-T3 coming, as the screenshot suggest.

The firmware has still to be developed, so it’s impossible Fujifilm is setting up the firmware page for imminent release now. The firmware will come much later, could be as late as summer, and the features have not yet been decided.

I hope that was clear enough.

Look closely, and you’ll see down below how easily something like this is done ;)

Thomas Heaton Fujifilm X-T3 Editing: “Capture One is Amazing, I can See Why Pros Use it, but if You Use Lightroom, Get This Plug-in!”

In his latest video (see below), Thomas Heaton talks about the photography software he use to process his Fujifilm X-T3 RAW files. He tested

Save 25% off on Capture One 20 all cameras and Capture One 20 for Fujifilm cameras using the coupon code “25EXTRA” (valid til February 5)

Here are some considerations:

  • Lightroom only: worm effect. Strange things go on. Images do not look great
  • Lightroom with enhanced details: cleans up files, no worms, initially files look better. But he realized he loses lots of details actually, and hence looks softer
  • Capture One: file looks fantastic. C1 does an amazing job. Nice clean file. He can see why Pros use that
  • Iridient X Transformer: simple to install. Converts Fuji RAW files to DNG file and takes care of sharpening. The results are very close to Capture One results. Image looks cleaner, better. Very impressed with Iridient X Transformer

And in real life? Thomas printed the same image using the 4 different methods. He can’t see any difference. You need a loupe and super close, to see difference.

The only real noticeable difference appears during the editing process. You look at high res monitor super magnified. But when printed, you don’t really see difference.

But although in real world you can’t see real difference, you want to work with the best file possible, enjoy the processing. He recommends Capture One or Iridient X Transformer.

Thomas Heaton decided to use Iridient X Transformer. It’s almost as good as Capture One, and he can keep all his Lightroom workflow.

But if you don’t have problems to switch, he would recommend Capture One.
