Kaizen X-Pro2 Firmware

Ho, ho, ho… :)

Fujifilm just released a new Firmware update for the Fujifilm X-Pro2 (ver.4.00), and it’s well worth to be called a “Kaizen” update.

It adds several features to the X-Pro2, such as 4K video, new AF-tracking, tethered shooting, highglight blinkies, RGB histogram & more. Quite a step up for the 2 years old X-Pro2… and of course it comes for free for all X-Pro2 owners.

And don’t forget to join our Fujifilm X-Pro facebook group ;)
