FUJIFILM Firmware Updates Coming in June for X-T4, X-A7, GFX100 and More?

It looks like June will be a interesting month, when it comes to Firmware updates.

Yesterday we reported about a free ProRes RAW Video Firmware update coming for Fujifilm GFX100.

Now we get hear reports that also the X-A7 should get an update, as well as the Fujifilm X-T4 (this one scheduled for the end of June).

I don’t know yet, if other cameras will get an update.

But keep in mind:

If there is one thing that Fujifilm can easily delay at any point in time, it’s firmware updates. If they feel it is not ready for their planed released, they will simply move it back a few weeks.

But what I know surely, is that the very same second Fujifilm Japan releases the firmware, you will read about it on FujiRumors.

Hence, make sure to follow FujiRumors on Patreon, Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed, Youtube, Flipboard and Twitter

DPRTV 2020 Camera Companies Resolutions: Fujifilm Should Merge X-T and X-H Line and Sony Steal Fujifilm Colors

2020 Camera Resolutions

DPReviewTV has published their 2020 resolutions for every camera company, of course including Fujifilm.

Regarding Fujifilm, they say:

When asked if Fujifilm should merge X-T and X-H line, most of you guys voted you prefer to keep both lines well separated, and I believe that would make sense, for the reasons I explained in this article.

What I believe would make sense, though, is to give us a Fujifilm X-T4 with IBIS and maybe a bigger battery. Do that, and you’ll make tons of Fujifilm shooters happy.

I am not sure about the Fujifilm X-A7 flippy screen, though, as this would make it tilt in the wrong direction, when shooting portraits. Maybe that’s more something for the Fujifilm X-H2.

Neopan 400 is a much loved film, as you can see from these customer reviews. So make it happen, Fuji!

As recently measured, Fujifilm has currenty the worse face/eye AF. But I would not worry about that too much. A major improvement is coming via firmware, soon.

You can see the full video above, where, among the others, the recommend Sony to steal Fujifilm colors ;).
