X-T1 firmware updates

Improved flash functionality
When using an external non-TTL flash, it will now fire when the “MECHANICAL+ELECTRONIC” is selected in the

“SHUTTER TYPE” option of the SHOOTING MENU.
If “S (Shutter Priority)” or “M (Manual Exposure)” mode is selected, set the shutter speed to 1/180sec or slower.

Improved Wi-Fi
Improved Wi-Fi communication when “FUJIFILM PC AutoSave” is used. The phenomenon is fixed that Wi-Fi communication with “FUJIFILM PC AutoSave” stops at the moment the LCD turns off.

Improved “USB MODE” functionality
(i) When “PC SHOOT FIXED” is selected, the warning of “IMAGES ARE NOT SAVED IN THE CARD” appears.
(ii) If “PC SHOOT FIXED” is selected in the “USB MODE” and the camera is not connected to a PC via a USB cable, you cannot turn off the camera when you turn the ON/OFF switch to the OFF position or remove the lens from the camera because the camera stays in the waiting mode for image transfer.

With this upgrade, the message below will appear to confirm whether you stop the image transfer to the PC or not in such operations. If you press “OK” button, the camera will turn off without recording images.

Note: “PCSHOOT AUTO” and “PS SHOOT FIXED” in the “USB MODE” are the modes to use PC shooting software like the optional accessory HS-V5. If you don’t use such a software, select “MTP(PTP)” in the “USB MODE”.

X100T firmware updates
“CONVERSION LENS” setting updated
When an Fn button with “CONVERSION LENS” setting is pressed, one of the messages below appears in a cyclic manner in addition to the icons.

Improved flash functionality
When using an external non-TTL flash, it will now fire when the “MECHANICAL+ELECTRONIC” is selected in the “SHUTTER TYPE” option of the SHOOTING MENU.

Updated viewfinder display
When the dual optical viewfinder/electronic rangefinder (ERF) display is used with the Digital Split Image, the white Focus frame appears in the centre of the viewfinder.

Improvement of Focus Peaking display
Focus peaking improved in the electronic viewfinder for darker environments to help with focusing.

FinePix S1 firmware update

Image quality improved (sharpness) when using continuous shooting mode.
