Fujifilm has released firmware update 1.01 for its flagship mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, called X-Pro2, in order to fix a couple of things that have been troubling users since the device’s launch.
A new high-end X-mount mirrorless camera has been unveiled by Fujifilm in January 2016. It has been named X-Pro2 and has been designed to replace the X-Pro1 with a bunch of improvements and novel features.
Shortly after it became available on the market, some users noticed that the shooter has some issues that needed to be addressed as soon as possible. In order to fix two of them, the Japanese manufacturer has just released firmware version 1.01 for all users.

The changelog of the Fujifilm X-Pro2 firmware update 1.01 has only two entries. The first is referring to a bug that caused the camera’s customized settings menu to reset themselves to the factory defaults when turning off the device. On the other hand, the second change consists of better image quality when capturing long-exposure photos.
Both tweaks will be welcomed by the users as nobody wants to change their camera’s settings each time they turn on the device, while more and more people are shooting long-exposure images and, just like in all situations, the best-possible image quality is welcomed.
Fuji says that all users should upgrade to the new version right away in order to make sure that their settings do not reset and to ensure that photo quality in long-exposure mode will be top-notch, as stated above.
