Over on DPReview a member shared a note he received by BHphoto about a new firmware for X-Pro3. And in the comments, a DPR member claimed it will come tomorrow, February 11.
That’s not true. No firmware will come tomorrow.
Other people got confused, and thought that the firwmare has been released already, as fellow FR-reader Thomas, who informed me via Twitter here.
Nope, nothing has been released, and nothing will be released tomorrow.
You have to be a bit patient… FujiRumors will inform you 0.01 seconds after the firmware will be online ;)
In the meantime, check out the official Fujifilm press release about the firmware.
I already said it in my X-S10, Attack on Sony article: the Fujifilm X-S10 makes a whole lot of sense.
And yet, I do understand one of the critiques made to Fujifilm: their line-up is huge and potentially confusing.
There are indeed some lines, that in some occasions do not not differentiated themselves enough from each other.
But this is an issue Fujifilm realized and I feel that they are taking care of it, for example:
- the Fujifilm X-Pro3 is a unique machine, with a concept, so far nowhere to find
- Fujifilm is aware that the the Fujifilm X-H2 must differentiate stronger from the X-T* line in order to continue to evolve separately
Fujifilm understands the problem and is finding ways to separate the lines better.
And yet… there are some lines that should be dropped, in my opinion.
Let’s take a look it at, by using an official Fujifilm media sheet that has been sent to me, which shows a pyramid with all Fujifilm X series cameras listed and ordered by Fujifilm itself.
The Red Zone
I’d like to thanks you guys for the help, and share two of the comparisons you made down below.
We can see, that the X-T30 is still slightly smaller. But not that much, actually, and consider that the X-S10 has also the IBIS unit build into it.
Now, we know the X-T10, X-T20 and X-T30 were absolute best sellers for Fujifilm. But I have the feeling that the X-S10 could do even better, as it features IBIS as well as a nice deep grip, features that many users want and so far could not find in a sub-1,000 Fuji X series camera.
The Fujifilm X-S10 has a terrific potential. Let’s hope it will turn out to be winner for Fujifilm.
Everything will be official on October 15. And everything about the X-S10 will be found on FujiRumors and the big live blogging we are going to have. Feel free to join us. :)

Fujifilm has released several firmware updates.
Down below you’ll find all the details officially shared by Fujifilm.
The main course of the meal is improved support for the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 R WR. for “enhanced AF speed and enabling Color Shading Correction to mitigate subtle color casts when images are made at the lens’ maximum F1.0 aperture“.
I wish Fujifilm would specify, which bugs are fixed. For example, as FujiRumors found out for first, the recent X-T4 “minor bug fix” was actually a major one, as it fixed the exposure stepping issue.
Anyway, down below all the details.
