Fujifilm X-T100 and X-A5 Firmware Updates Released

Fujifilm Firmware Updates

Fujifilm has just released new firmware updates for Fujifilm X-T100 and X-A5.

Fujifilm X-T100 Firmware Ver.1.10 – download here

  1. Advanced Filters “Rich & Fine” and “Monochrome [NIR]”
    “Rich & Fine” filter is recommended for food and other tabletop photography. It simulates brighter and more vivid colors at the center of the image and adds slight shadow at the four corners to emphasize the subject. “Monochrome [NIR]” simulates Monochrome effect as taken by near-infrared cameras. These modes will allow photographers to add additional artistic flair or film-like color tones to their photos.
  2. SQUARE MODE: The “SQUARE MODE” allows users to switch to 1:1 format with a single flick on the touchscreen. The “SQUARE MODE” enhances compatibility with social media networks where 1:1 format has become the standard image format for posting photos.
  3. Initial setting of ISO is changed to “AUTO” when switching to P, S, A, M, Adv modes.
  4. Improvement of AF accuracy when pressing the shutter button halfway in AF-C mode.
  5. The phenomenon is fixed that the AF frame in the navigation window in the EVF can shift from the set position when enlarging the focus position display.
  6. The phenomenon is fixed that the highlight warning doesn’t appear in the Info display.
  7. Fix of slight defects.

New Fujifilm X-T100 Handmade Leather Case (and X-H1 too, as Reported Last Week)

There are more and more leather cases for our beloved Fujifilm cameras hitting the market.

Just last week we reported in this accessories roundup about the TP half leather case for Fujifilm X-H1. I share it again today, just in case you missed it.

Of course there are some more X-H1 leather case options on the market, and you can see them all at AmazonUS (includes BolinUS, Gariz and more that we already covered in the past here on FujiRumors).

So let’s talk about the brand new stuff today.

BolinUS just released the Fujifilm X-T100 BolinUS Handmade PU Leather Half Camera Case. It comes in three colors and also in this case you can access the battery door.

 

DPReviewTV Entry-Level Mirrorless APS-C Shootout: Fujifilm X-T100 Vs. Sony a6000 Vs. Canon EOS M50

Chris and Jordan from DPReview TV took a look at three entry-level APS-C mirrorless models, the Canon EOS M50, Sony a6000, and Fujifilm X-T100.

Which one is the best for a beginner?

They have split their review in 6 categories plus the overall conclusions.

Despite the Fujifilm X-T100 winning 3 out of 6 categories, it is not their overall favorite camera for beginners, because a lot of these categories are more important to more experienced photographers as opposed to somebody just starting out.

And since I know many of you guys might read this on the run on a smartphone, here is a quick summary of their comparison. But make sure to check out the whole video at DPreviewTV here.

Handling, Design and Aesthetics

  1. Fujifilm X-T100: Looks good, feels good. Triple control dials
  2. Canon EOS M50: Feels more plasticky compared to X-T100. Best swivel and touch screen
  3. Sony a6000: Low resolution Viewfinder. Bad menu. No touch screen

Autofocus (all work great in AF-S, focus in the review on AF-C)

FUJIFILM USA Currently has No Plans to Sell Brown X-E3 and X100F. Fujifilm X-T100 Brown Color in Asia

Fujifilm Camera Colors

Back in February, we told you that Fujifilm had plans to launch a brown X100F. And indeed, starting from May, the brown Fujifilm X100F started to appear at stores all over the world.

Then, in June, here on FR we also broke the news about the brown Fujifilm X-E3, which today is available in many markets.

Everybody was expecting these two color configurations to sell soon also in USA, especially since they are available in Canada already, but it seems we were wrong.

According to our sources, Fujifilm USA has currently no plans to sell the brown Fujifilm X100F and brown Fujifilm X-E3 in USA.

If those colors will turn out to be very popular, then Fujifilm USA might decide to introduce them to the US market, too. But at this point, Fujifilm USA is not interested.

Fujifilm X-T100 Colors

Wow, I got some very excited emails this morning, telling me that also the Fujifilm X-T100 is now available in dark silver.

But guys, the dark silver X-T100 is available since May 24, 2018, the day the Fujifilm X-T100 was launched. :)

If you missed this and other X-T100 information, you better check back our X-T100 live blogging.

What you can find, though, is the brown X-T100 here, as spotted and shared with us by FR-reader imagei here. The brown X-T100 is only available in Asia, and it remains to see if it will be sold also in Europe and North America.

Overall Asia seems very color friendly, when it comes to offer Fuji cameras in different vests. We reported yesterday that there is a graphite X-A5 in Asia, and it is available in Europe too.

Sharpening Fujifilm X-TRANS files with No Wormy Artifacts in ADOBE and the X-T100 BAYER sensor has Worms, too!

Sharpening Fujifilm RAW Files

In our Debunking Fujifilm X-Trans Myths article, we already explained that you can get wormy-artifacts less results using Adobe products only. Sure, you have to sharpen differently compared to how you sharpen Bayer RAW files, but it is possible.

And it is curious to note that 2 products from the same company, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop, behave differently when it comes to X-Trans RAW sharpening. Out of the box, Photoshop works very well, Lightroom not so.

If you don’t use Photoshop, my recommendation is to use Irdient X Transformer as a Lightroom plug-in, so you take advantage of Iridient’s better default X-Trans demosaicing directly in Lightroom.

Anyway, the more X-Shooters make videos or write about how to get best sharpening results with X-Trans files, the better it is. We have to spread the word that you don’t have to live with wormy artifacts at all.

Fujifilm Says X-T20 is for Creative Hipsters, X-T100 of Outgoing People and X-A5 for Fashionable Women

Fujifilm Targets

For whom is the Fujifilm X-T100? What’s the target of the X-A5? And which people should pick the X-T20 over the X-T100?

Well, Fujifilm has a clear idea on this subject, as we can see from the media sheet above.

So, if you are a cool and outgoing person, you should take the X-T100 with selfie screen, if you are a creative hipster with good photography skills, then the X-T20 is the way to go, and if you are an active, fashionable woman under 30, the X-A5 is the camera you need.

That’s just a little curiosity, in case you wondered whom Fujifilm targets with their different entry and mid-range cameras.

For me this quick article is also a welcome opportunity to wish all US residents a fantastic independence day :) .
