Woo, hoo, yay, Fuijfilm strike again

OK, I still haven’t done a review thingy on my Fujifilm X-T2, possibly because I’ve just been enjoying it. But even the best toys can be improved upon, and that’s exactly what Fujifilm are doing. There will be a major firmware update for the X-T2 and X-Pro2 within the next week or so which will make various improvements, many of which are things that users have been asking for, including some I’m quite keen to have:

  • Adding copyright data in the camera, so you don’t need to add it in software
  • Giving names to Custom Settings – which means I might finally use them (I would never remember what settings I’d added to sets 1, 2, 3, etc. Names are good.
  • AE bracketing up from three frames to nine – great for HDR fun and games
  • Vertical display of menus – so when you’re shooting in portrait mode you don’t need to bend your neck to read the screen

And much more.

And just to show that they really like looking after their customers, there will be another update in May, which adds a bunch more features including tethering to a computer using Wi-Fi.

Nice, though I should mention that some of the new features will not be available on the X-Pro2 – check out the link for details.
