Fujifilm Releases New Firmware Updates for X-T4, X-T3, X-E4, X-Pro3, X-T200 and X-A7

Fujifilm has released a couple of new firmware updates. Down below all details and download links.

In theory this is just a minor bug fix update, but I remember when I was on holiday last year in South Italy and Fujifilm released a new X-T4 firmware with “minor bug fixes”. Intrigued by that, I tested the new firmware during my holiday, and found out that it fixed the exposure stepping in video, which is all, but just a minor bug fix.

→ Do Not Miss -→ BHphoto Mega Deal Zone → Includes Huge Deals on Third Party X Lenses

This is why I generally always recommend to update your cameras. Fujifilm can fix a typo in the menu, but also way bigger issues with such “minor bug fixes”.

Also, Fujifilm promised us a major GFX100 firmware update and also a major X-S10 firmware update. Sadly they have not been released today. I hope this does not mean there was some sort of last second delay (wouldn’t be the first time).

In any case, here on FR I’ll let you know as soon as the new firmware for GFX100 and X-S10. So follow us.

With all that said, you can find all details and links for the latest firmware updates down below.

Lensmate Thumb Grip for Fujifilm X-E4 Available

Lensmate has released the Lensmate thumb grip for Fujifilm X-E4.

It is about 30% more affordable than the original Fujifilm thumb rest for X-E4.

Fujifilm X-E4 Thumbrest

  • engineered specifically for the Fujifilm X-E4, with ideal length and curve geometry
  • The sculpted thumbrest allows you to relax the grip on the camera, reducing camera shake allowing slower shutter speeds.
  • Makes one handed operation easier and prevents unintentional button presses.
  • Camera specific design retains access to all controls.
  • Integrated silicone insert provides both thumb grip and bumper between the rest and camera body.
  • Silicone insert in the hot shoe tab provides resistance to unintentional ejection.
  • Machined out of solid 6061 Aluminum rod, then bead blasted for texture and anodized for a tough finish.

The Lensmate X-E4 thumb rest will be available shortly at AmazonUS here, BHphoto here and Adorama here, and it is already available at lensmateonline.

ePHOTOzine Fujifilm X-E4 Review: “You Can’t Deny How Beautiful it Looks!”

I always told you that Fujifilm X-E line cameras are Fujifilm’s best looking cameras (after the X100 line cameras).

Now this is official, as ePHOTOzine writes in their review.

one thing you can’t deny is how good it looks

I owned all X-E cameras (except for the mysterious X-E2S, still today I wonder if it was worth for Fujifilm to release a new camera just for single AUTO button). And if I would not yet own the X-Trans IV Fuji X-T4, I’d grab the X-E4 immediately, as I love the hidden LCD screen on the X-E4. But there must a be reasonable limit to the gear I buy ;).

Now I put all my hope in a Fujifilm X-E5 with newer sensor that keeps the hidden screen. For that one, I’ll sell my X-E3 and X-T4.

Back to the review. ePHOTOzine ends up highly recommend the Fujifilm X-E4. Here are their Pros and Cons:

Pros:

  • Beautiful styling and looks
  • Most affordable 26mp Fujifilm camera
  • Compact and well-made body
  • Great image quality and noise performance
  • High-speed AF and continuous shooting
  • Wide range of X-mount lenses

Cons:

  • Exposure compensation dial easily knocked
  • Lacks of in-camera IS, and no digital IS for video
  • Fewer controls, and lack of grip without the accessory pack
  • Small buttons

IT IS OVER: Fujifilm X-E4 is Fuji’s Last X-Trans IV Camera

It’s over!

Not only the Fujifilm X-E4 will be the last X series camera to come this year, but according to our sources it will also be the last one to feature the excellent X-Trans IV sensor!

The 26MP X-Trans IV sensor was used first on the Fujifilm X-T3, followed by the X-T30, X-Pro3, X100V, X-T4, X-S10 and last but not least the X-E4.

It’s still a great sensor with top-notch technology. Backside illuminated, full phase detection coverage, copper wiring for faster sensor readout. It’s the same technology we find in flagship cameras of other brands such as the Sony Alpha a7R IV.

And the future?

Fujifilm managers already hinted multiple times like in this interview and also here, that the future will bring more megapixel to the X series.

Which sensor technology will be used? Will it really be that 43 Megapixel 8K stacked BSI sensor?

Questions, riddles and enigmas that FujiRumors is trying to answer for you.

All I can say for now is that, after an explosive start in 2021, Fuji’s current quietness is only apparent. Behind the scenes great things are planed, and if you’d like to get a secret glimpse into them, following FujiRumors is the way to go.

My Lovely Fujinon XF27mmF2.8 R WR, the Fujinon XF70-300mmF4-5.6 and Fujifilm X-E4 Reviews Roundup

Ein Beitrag geteilt von Fuji_Rumors (@fuji_rumors)

On April 26 I was finally allowed to leave my little village, so I could finally hit my local photography store in the province nearby.

I entered the store, and in a total frenzy grabbed the first free seller and nervously asked him to give me that bloody XF27mmF2.8 R WR right now!

I guess this was some sort of withdrawal symptom, as I sold my XF27mmF2.8 MKI a few days ago, which I was totally addicted to. So the replacement could not come fast enough!

Now I finally have it, and here it is! Obviously glued on my Fujifilm X-E3. The dream combo is back, and it already served me well on my daily walks around my little village with my son.

But the lovely Fujinon XF27mmF2.8 R WR is just one of the photo gear Fujifilm recently released just the day before my son was born.

Sure, there was the massive Fujifilm GFX100S and the bokeh monster GF80mmF1.7.

But the releases on the X series front were not less interesting.

There was the Fujifilm X-E4. Then there is the incredibly poratable Fujinon XF70-300mmF4-5.6, which, with about the size of the XF55-200mm, is the perfect lens to get a long reach in a compact package and absolutely fair price for the X system. And yes, last but not least the XF27mmF2.8 R WR.

So today we would like to focus on the roundup on the latest and greatest X series gear. Lots to watch and read down below.
