Fujifilm GFX100S Bug Fix Firmware 2.01 Released, but Some Now Prefer This Workaround

Fujifilm has finally released the Fujifilm GFX100S firmware fix they promised us a couple of days ago.

The curious thing about this bug: people were forced to use a workaround for a while, and I know that some fellow GFX100S shooters, who applied the workaround, now actually stick with it as they find it more convenient that keeping the button pressed to change exposure compensation.

So, not all the bad comes to hurt, at least not for those, who now stick with the workaround solution.

Down below you find all the firmware details and download links.

Fujifilm GFX100S Firmware “Still Being Evaluated” and GFX50SII Firmware 2.01 Released

Fujifilm has released the new firmware for the Fujifilm GFX50SII, which fixes the bug with the exposure compensation button.

The Fujifilm GFX100S suffers the same issue after the latest firmware, but so far it has not yet received the bug fix firmware. Fujifilm writes:

Revised firmware for FUJIFILM GFX100S is still being evaluated, although it was planned to be released on May 31.
We will release the revised version A.S.A.P. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

In the meantime, here is the workaround (which some might even prefer).

Fujifilm Finds Temporary Work Around for GFX100S/GFX50SII Exposure Compensation Bug (via FujiRumors ;) )

Yesterday Fujifilm released a statement, where they acknowledge the exposure compensation bug introduced on Fujifilm GFX100S and GFX50SII with the latest firmware and they said a fix will be out on May 31.

Of course FujiRumors reported about it yesterday, but we also suggested a temporary workaround based on a recommendation that came from one of our fellow Fujifilm GFX users members here.

Well, it looks like Fujifilm read our article and has now updated their statement suggesting the very same workaround.

The exposure compensation can be used by changing the [EXPO. COMP. BUTTON SETTING] to [ON/OFF SWITCH], which will be the temporary workaround until the revised firmware is released.
*The menu flow to make the above setting is as follows.

Always happy to help, Fujifilm :)

And thanks again to our amazing Fujifilm GFX group and Carlos in this case! You made it into an official Fujifilm press note.

Fujifilm Removes New Firmware for GFX100S and GFX50SII and Promises Fix on May 31 (and Work Around Solution)

Yesterday Fujifilm has released lots of firmware updates for 13 Fujifilm cameras (including some major updates!!).

Two of those cameras were the Fujifilm GFX100S and the GFX50SII.

Sadly, after updating, many FujiRumors readers started to report to me that they were now incurring in issues with the new firmware.

Well, Fujifilm has now pulled off the firmware for those two cameras and said they will release a firmware fix on May 31.

Fujifilm writes:

We have confirmed a problem with the exposure compensation function not working properly.
Therefore, we have removed the download button for this version.
We will release fixed firmware on May 31.

As soon as the new firwmare is online, I will report about it on FujiRumors.

Also, fellow Fujifilm GFX group member Carlos shared a workaround and he shared it in our group.

“I found a solution or “work-around” to Firmware (FW) 2.0 disabling the Exposure Compensation button on my GFX100s. The solution “is in the manual”, as some repeatedly and annoyingly say.
Go to the menu, and instead of choosing “+/- when pressing” (which was the default setting from the factory set-up), now choose “ +/- on/off switch”.
With this option, you will press on your camera the +/- Exp Comp button, then turn the back wheel to make a change, and then press the +/- Exp Comp button to deactivate the back wheel from altering the ExpComp. If you don’t deactivate it, turning the back wheel will not alter your shutter speed. “

We remind you that Fujifilm removed also the XApp from the App stores due to issues with the display. A fix is on the way also there, but you can continue to use the App with no problem if you have already installed it.

DEAL ALERT: Save BIG on Fujifilm GFX100S and Plenty of GF Lenses

Today Fujifilm has launched huge deals on plenty of Fujifilm GFX gear, including a $500 price drop on the Fujifilm GFX100S.

Also the Fujifilm X-H2 got wonderful bundle deals. Check out all the details below.

DPRTV Declares Fujifilm GFX100S Best Camera for Landscape Photography

Which are the best cameras for landscape photography?

DPRTV looks at three different price points and makes its recommendations.

There is also a Fujifilm camera among the winners, the Fujifilm GFX100S, in the “money is no object” category.

DPRTV says:

There is no disputing that the Fujifilm GFX medium format cameras are the best option for landscape. Our choice is the Fujifilm GFX100S. What is not to love: you get that amazing 100MP sensor clearly well suited for landscape photography. We also prefer the GFX100S body over the GFX100 because it is more compact. You get nice ergonomics. The Fuji style tilt screen is certainly nice for landscape when you are at awkward angles and it is just easier to travel with.

Fujifilm also has an excellent line of lenses, including the GF20-35mmF4, which is very rare in medium format to have an ultra wide range like that and it’s also a very sharp lens.

It has IBIS and it’s very effective.

If you need more megapixel, you can shoot in multi-shot and get 400MP images.

There is simply no better pick for landscape photography than the Fujifilm GFX100S, if money is no object.

SIMPLY the BEST: Messi and Ronaldo Meet the Fujifilm GFX100S of Annie Leibovitz

Apparently Annie Leibovitz is not really following the photography forums and certain gear youtubers, otherwise she would know that the Fujifilm GFX100S is a completely useless tool because:

Limited by her gear, Annie stucks with minor gigs like photographing the two most iconic soccer players of the last 15 years, Ronaldo and Messi, for an insignificant company like Louis Vuitton in the context of a negligable event like the FIFA World Cup.

If only she would listen to certain big YouTubers, she would get rid of her GFX gear and finally be able to shine artistically by recording selfie videos in a basement.

The day will come, when wisdom will finally illumiate her. Until then, you can see a video of her working with GFX, Messi and Ronaldo as well as the final image below.

And btw… the gear Annie uses, is now heavily discounted.

NOTE: this is a satirical post… we don’t take life too seriously on weekends, right? ;) And thanks to our Greek friends at who spotted the news and shared it with us.
