Fujifilm has released firmware version 3.00 for the X-Pro1 on July 23. It has been welcomed with arms wide open by photographers, as it has brought a lot of new and exciting features, such as Focus Peaking.
Fujifilm pulled firmware update 3.00 for X-Pro1, after discovering major movie function bug
Unfortunately, the company was forced to pull the update after users had discovered that the firmware has a serious bug related to the camera’s movie mode.
Photographers have reported that the movie function is broken, as entering this mode would display some weird shapes and lines on the screen. The company has acknowledged the issue and it has revealed that a fix will be provided once it gets to the root of the problem.
Fujifilm X-Pro1 firmware update 3.01 goes live to fix the movie bug
Well, it could not have come any sooner, as the Fujifilm X-Pro1 firmware update 3.01 is now available for download and it squashes the aforementioned bug. The new version can be downloaded at the product’s official support page
The company has confirmed that the “phenomenon” causing movies not to be recorded or display properly has been repaired. As a result, users who want to capture or playback videos on their cameras should go ahead and download the update as soon as possible.
Other version 3.xx changes when compared to version 2.xx
This is the only difference when compared to the previous version. However, it is worth noting that version 3.00 offers Focus Peak Highlight, which outlines the subject in a higher contrast.
Additionally, the update comes packed with a new way of changing magnification in manual focus mode. The Command dial can be used for that, allowing users to change magnification between 3x and 10x.
The focus system has also “suffered” some changes, but for the better, as the X-Pro1 camera will be able to acquire focus faster in lower light conditions.
