Take it with a grain of salt, but that’s the story: A Canadian FR-reader had a talk with a Fuji-rep at Quebec’s photo & video. The Fuji-rep told him that there will be an X-E1 firmware update “very soon”, but he didn’t tell anything about the details of the update… so you’re still free to fly with you imagination. What would you like to have improved? Villi Asgeirsson said on the FR-facebook wall that he’d like to have full manual control in video mode.

The FR-reader couldn’t tell me if the update will be compatible also with the X-PRO1. But in the past Fuji updated both cameras contemporaneously. So let’s hope also this time.

I remind you that back in July (see here) there where rumors saying for example that focus peaking on the E1/PRO1 will get more colour options.

If true, it seems that we could have another Kaizen-day right in time for X-mas!

But remember, the X100 firmware update was scheduled for September (or even earlier), but Fuji was able to release it only in October (btw, well worth the wait!). Delays are always possible. So I’ll believe it only when I see it ready for download at Fuji’s global website.

Have a good start in this new week.
