Fujifilm X-T2 Firmware Update 4.01 Released – Rollback to Previous Version. Fujifilm GFX, X-Pro2 and X-H1 Firmware Postponed

Fujifilm X-T2 Firmware Update

The latest major firmware update 4.00 for Fujifilm X-T2 has introduced quite some bugs, and evidently Fujifilm needs a bit more time to fix them all.

Hence, just half a second ago, Fujifilm released Fujifilm X-T2 firmware update 4.01, which basically re-uploads the older bug free firmare ver.3.00 (no slow motion, F-log & Co), as well a public apology (full press text below).

2 days ago we rumored that Fujifilm is working on a bug fix firmware update. Today’s rollback firmware confirms the rumor. Here are the bugs Fujifilm is working to solve:

  1. When RAW files, which were taken by X-T2 (before firmware ver.4.00), are converted in camera (ver.4.00) or by “FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO”, they are not converted properly.
  2. When pressing the shutter button halfway under certain conditions, the live view can flicker.
  3. In rare cases, a hang-up can occur.

Thanks to Fujifilm for quickly delivering this transitional solution and we look forward to re-upload the bug-free Kaizen firmware soon.

Fujifilm X-H1 Vs. Sony A7III Vs. Sony A6500 Comparisons

Sony A7III Vs Fujifilm X-H1

This is probably one of the hottest camera comparisons currently on the web: Sony A7III Vs. Fujifilm X-H1.

Now also mirrorlesscomparison compares the two cameras, and it’s as usual a very in depth comparison, so make sure to check it out all.

From the conclusions:

The A7 III ticks all the boxes: great image and video quality, stunning autofocus performance, excellent speed and buffer, lots of customisation, superior battery life, a dual SD card slot and more.

Is it perfect? No camera is, and this one is no exception. For example, the choice to keep the design compact means that the camera isn’t as comfortable with large lenses, and the image stabilisation – while useful with non-stabilised lenses – is the only thing that hasn’t really improved in over three years.

The X-H1 is a different product in many ways, last but not least because it has been designed for a different audience. […]

The X-H1 may sound less exciting than the Sony, but it would be wrong to undermine it. It got some basic yet very important things right, like the comfortable grip, the user-friendly interface and a better implementation of touch screen capabilities. It also shows that Fujifilm is capable of delivering on the video side, not only in terms of quality but also with its clever features and settings.

The X-H1 is also the camera debuts 5-axis stabilisation on the X series, which […] in many ways, is already better than the Sony’s stabilisation system.

The reason the X-H1 doesn’t impress me as much as it should – despite being the most advanced and complete product from Fujifilm to date – has to do with the things that haven’t changed. [FujiRumors: same “old” X-Trans3 sensor, same eye and face detection of X-T2, that is not in par of Sony’s, same battery of X-T2]

Fujifilm X-H1 Review by Chris & Jordan at DPReview (former TCSTV). Did You Know You Can Adjust the Shutter Button to 3 Different Strength Levels?

Fujifilm X-H1 Review

You probably all know at this time, that Chris and Jordan have left TheCameraStoreTV and are now part of the DPReview team.

They now released their Fujifilm X-H1 review at the dpreivew youtube channel, “the best mismarketed camera out there” according to Chris.

Here are some highlights:

FujiRumors is everywhere: Facebook, RSS-feed, Instagram, Youtube and Twitter

STILLS

  • large professional looking body, but lighter than DSLR’s
  • Fujifilm gives us lots of different body choices (X-Pro2, X-T20, X-T2, X-E3 etc…)
  • very weather sealed
  • one of the best EVF’s they have ever used. Blows away the X-T2 viewfinder
  • not great battery life
  • in very low light with critical conditions, AF is doable, but not perfect (50% shots in focus)
  • touch AF is laggy, better use the joystick
  • eye AF not as good as Sony
  • it is important to set the right AF custom mode to make the best out of the AF system
  • Handles flare better than older cameras
  • Chris loves the quiet mechanical shutter

VIDEO

  • Great hybrid camera
  • Eterna is great for video, Jordan’s favorite profile for videos
  • fantastic EVF, no need to punch in to check focus
  • touch silent interface for video recording. All operates from touch screen and keeps settings separated from stills. Great idea. But touch screen control can be cumbersome and laggy
  • linear focussing with focus by wire lenses is an enormously important feature
  • camera never overheats. But 15 minutes recording limit without battery grip
  • exposure changes in 1/3 stop… should be smoother
  • IBIS quite effective

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Chris got used to the new shutter button and likes it. But if it is too soft for your taste, Chris says you can send it in to Fujifilm and they will adjust it to one of the three different strengths levels you prefer. Here on FujiRumors we have already reported about this possibility, but it’s a good reminder in case you have missed it.

Make sure to check out the whole video at dpreview youtube here.

Quick Tip: Monitor Your Audio on Fujifilm X-T2 / X-H1 using micro HDMI to VGA adapter

As you know, the Fujifilm X-H1 and X-T2 have the headphone jack built-in only into the vertical battery grip, hence you need to get the grip in order to be able to monitor your audio.

But there is a (very cheap) workaround.

Fujifilm X-H1 facebook group member S. has reported to us a little “hack”, that some of you might find useful, too.

“I have just make with success the hack for the audio out monitoring with a micro-HDMI to VGA adaptor. Very lightweight. It works perfectly just plugging the headphone. The adaptor works without external power supply. No audio lag in headphones during filming”.

Just one lack:

“In PLAY mode, the X-H1 shows the film only by the HDMI output, not on its display. I hope that a future firmware can give the possibility to play the videos on the display even when a micro-HDMI is plugged.”
