I’ve had my Fujifilm X-T1 for nearly a year now, and I’m still very happy with it. I was made even happier when last December’s firmware update added some tasty improvements.
Now at this point, most camera manufacturers would move on, bring out the next model with nearly enough enhancements to make you start thinking it might be time for an upgrade, but not quite enough to make it essential.
But once again, Fujifilm have taken a different road. They’ve just announced the v4 firmware for the X-T1, which will be available for the usual cost of nothing at all in June. This adds a shiny new and improved autofocus system, which claims to be much better at tracking moving objects, amongst other things. Not only that, but it will notice if you’re trying to focus on something close and activate macro mode without you having to press a button (which means you can use that button for something else, nice).
That’s the big one, but there are also some general improvements and changes which look suspiciously like things people have been asking for. Details from the official source:
Seriously, there’s enough there for most companies to release a new model and point and laugh at existing customers. Nice work, Fujifilm 😄
