p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Fuji X firmware update to add focus peaking


Fujifilm has announced a set of firmware updates for its X-Pro1 and X-E1 mirrorless cameras. Versions 2.05 for the X-Pro1 and 1.06 for the X-E1 will be available to download on 25th June; they offer compatibility with lenses that don't have aperture rings, and allow easier focus area selection when shooting with the eye-level viewfinder.

The company has also pre-announced further updates (Versions 3.00 for the X-Pro1, and 2.00 for the X-E1) which promise to improve autofocus speed with existing XF lenses, and add the much-requested 'focus peaking' function to aid manual focus. These are due to be available for download on 23rd July.

I'm happier about the additional programmable function button that can be changed to adjust the AF point. Now I can finally move the AF point using my right hand instead of hunting for the AF button on the left.

I was waiting for it precisely for the manual focus aids already implemented in the x100s
But if focus peaking works well on the Xpro1 there's a good chance I might not bother to upgrade and use the funds for lenses instead.

Very nice firmware updates!

I'll definitely use the 2nd fn button now.

I am interested in peaking, but, to be honest, I find the magnification (3x or 10x) very quick and VERY accurate when it comes to MF already. I'm skeptical that peaking will improve upon the speed/efficiency/accuracy of this-- for me (maybe not you).

Most upsettingly, though: Where is the damn minimum SS in auto-ISO/Aperture Priority modes?! This single, simple, should-be-easy-to-implement-via-firmware option would increase my productivity/efficiency with this camera by at least 20 to 30%. Letting me use the exp comp in more semi-auto modes would be good, for me, for another 10%.

Well done, Fuji. In addition they should add min. shutter speed with auto-iso and face detection AF. That would be a huge step in the right direction.
