Fujifilm has released firmware updates for its X-T30 and X-T3 camera systems, as well as its XF 16–80mm F4 R OIS WR lens. While the updates for the X-T3 and XF 16–80mm F4 are extremely minor, the X-T30 gains a number of much-anticipated features.
Starting out with the smaller updates, firmware version 3.21 for the X-T3 and firmware version 1.03 for the XF 16–80mm F4 both address minor bugs. No specific bugs are mentioned and no other information is given about the updates.
Moving onto firmware version 1.20 for the X-T30, Fujifilm has added a list of new features and functionality. First and foremost, Fujifilm has added improved autofocus performance. According to Fujifilm, the tracking performance of the eye AF frame has been improved, the face-detection has been improved when there are different-sized faces in the same frame and autofocus on foreground subjects has been improved when there is a mix of foreground and background subjects in an image.
Fujifilm has also improved gimbal and drone support when the X-T30 is used with supported rigs over USB. Specifically, firmware version 1.20 adds functions for starting and stopping video recording, adjusting exposure settings for video and adjusting manual focus for video.
Also added is the ability to save up to 9,999 photos into a single folder on an SD card; previously the X-T30 was limited to only 999 shots per folder.
You can download the latest updates for the X-T30 (version 1.20), X-T3 (version 3.21) and the XF 16–80mm F4 lens (version 1.03) on Fujifilm’s respective support pages.
