This is an update to the previous blog, Fujifilm: Firmware Ver. 4.00 for X-T1 and X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition Will be Posted in Late June 2015: New Auto Focus System Has Advanced Technologies for X-T10 and XT-1 Cameras.

Both FUJIFILM X-T1 and FUJIFILM X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition cameras have a new firmware update ver.4.00 which is now available to download at http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/firmware/x/xt1/index.html .

Faster & Faster

Here is a Fujifilm tip to make the camera even faster!

Simply updating the firmware won’t make full use of X-T1’s potential. If you want the fastest performance, set the “HIGH PERFORMANCE” option to ON from the menu below:

SETUP 2 > POWER MANAGEMENT > HIGH PERFORMANCE

  • The AF speed will be faster by setting the option.
  • It will depend on the lens used and the shooting environment, but it will be faster by approx. 0.04 sec.
  • This menu is not limited to X-T1. Other models like X-T10 and X-E2 also have the menu as well.
  • The sacrifice to make the AF speed faster is the greater battery consumption, but it is a good option to remember when you are at the critical moment to take the best shot.
  • If you carry a spare battery with you, then maybe it is not a bad idea to set the menu on at all times.

The following video presents Fuji Guys – Fujifilm X-T1 Firmware Version 4.00 – New Features:

The Fuji Guys are back to demonstrate the new improvements found in the new Firmware Version 4.00 update. The new Firmware Update V.4.00 for the FUJIFILM X-T1 and X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition features an advanced autofocus system for incredible performance when shooting moving subjects and exciting action scenes. Users will also experience improved auto focus accuracy for still images and video, Eye Detection, enhanced shutter speed dial operation, Exposure Compensation control in Manual mode, and finer framing grid lines for enhanced visibility and image composition.
