Fujifilm GFX 50S and Fujfiilm X-T20 Firmware Update Coming – Full Details


Along with the Fujifilm X-H1 and the MK lenses, Fujifilm will announce firmware updates for the Fujifilm GFX 50S and the Fujifilm X-T20.

We already reported about it here, now again the full details, google translated from German.

Fujifilm GFX Firmware Update (ver. 3.00)Available end of February

  1. Focus bracketing
    With the update, the automatic recording of image series (up to 999 images) with different focus settings is possible. After each triggering, the camera independently shifts the focus plane by the previously set step value (1-10).
  2. Small picture format mode (meaning Full Frame Format)
    In the new 35mm format mode, the active sensor area is limited to a 36.0mm x 24.0mm (30.5 megapixel) area in the center of the image. As a result, interchangeable lenses whose image circle corresponds to the 35 mm format can be used even more conveniently. If desired, one of the function keys (Fn) of the GFX 50S can be assigned this function.
  3. Compatibility with H MOUNT ADAPTER G
    The new firmware also extends the compatibility of the H MOUNT ADAPTER G with additional lenses and other accessories. A list of compatible products is available on the Internet at:

Fujifilm X-T20 Firmware Update (ver. 2.00) – available beginning of April

  1. Improved AF tracking
    With the newly developed scene recognition algorithm, the camera can track even smaller moving objects twice as fast as with the previous firmware version.
  2. Improved touchscreen operation
    With the update, the X-T20 receives many of the touchscreen features already familiar from the FUJIFILM X-E3:
    1. Enlarge display: When you double-tap, the picture is magnified and centered on the focus point.
    2. Focus range selection: The user can move the focus point even when magnified.

  4. User-defined operation of the FUJINON XC15-45mmF3.5-5.6 OIS PZ
    After updating the firmware, the operation of the new zoom lens FUJINON XC15-45mmF3.5-5.6 OIS PZ can be configured as follows:
    1. Occupy focus ring with zoom function
    2. Maintaining the zoom position during time-lapse recording
    3. Maintaining the zoom position in playback mode (faster
    Readiness to reactivate the recording mode)
  5. More flash functions for radio remote control of studio flash units
    With the update, the high-speed flash synchronization and the TTL flash exposure mode can now also be used with radio remote control of compatible studio flash units from other manufacturers.
  6. Display RGB histogram and overexposure warning
    A function key can be used to fade in the RGB histogram as well as to activate the overexposure warning (blinking of overexposed areas).
  7. Enlarged and custom viewfinder display
