Major Firmware Update for X-T5, X-H2, X-S20 and X100VI – New Features Guide Released and Where is Reala Ace?

Fujifilm has just released major firmware updates for the Fujifilm X-T5, X-H2, X-S20 and X100VI.

As usual, there were many disappointed that REALA ACE is not part of the update. I try to reply them all in the various posts I made on social media, but I thought at this point it is best to highlight it again in this article, in the hope the message comes through this time.

Fujifilm promised two major firmware updates: one coming in spring and one in summer. And it’s the one in summer that will bring Reala Ace to other 5th generation cameras.

What will come and when dedicated article here.

So, I hope this helps to mitigate the disappointment that Reala Ace did not come this time around. ;)

Nonetheless, what we got today is already a significant update, so much so that for all the cameras mentioned above (except for X-S20), Fujifilm has released new features guide so that you can learn how to properly use the new features

Report of Malfunction with Viltrox Lenses after Fujifilm X-T5 Firmware Update but No Problems Reported by Other X-T5 Users

There are reports shared at the Japanese website Asobinet, that Viltrox lenses stop working on Fujifilm X-T5 after the latest firmware update.

A couple of hours ago I asked in our huge X-T group if anyone is experiencing such issues.

Some members tested the new firmware on their Viltrox 13mm f/1.4 and Viltrox 27mm f/1.2 and did not notice any malfunction.

Feel free to drop your experience in the comments down below.

Fujifilm Firmware Updates for Several Cameras (X-T5 included), XF16-55, FT-XH and Promises More Firmware Love to Come in 2024

Fujifilm has released firmware updates for Fujifilm X-T5, X-T4, X-T3, X-H2, X-H2S, X-S20, X-S10 and XF16-55mmF2.8 as well as the Fujifilm FT-XH File transmitter grip.

It’s mainly (but not only) a video centric update and more lenses will get the same update in February (XF16-80mmF4 and XF18-120mmF4).

Moreover, in their recent official X Summit announcement, Fujifilm said they are “currently considering further enhancements“, which I hope will translate also on firmware love for those, who mainly use Fujifilm cameras for stills.
