A premium interchangeable lens camera, the X-T1 features evolved SLR-style handling, mechanical dials and weather-resistance (when paired with a weather resistant X mount lens), together with all the benefits of an X-Series camera, such as compact size, excellent mobility and high-speed performance.
Fujifilm has announced new Firmware Update V.4.00 for the FUJIFILM X-T1 that improves the latter’s autofocus performance, especially when tracking moving subjects. The firmware update adds new Zone and Wide/Tracking modes which use 77 autofocus points across a wider area to substantially improve the camera’s ability to track and capture moving subjects.
The Zone mode allows users to choose a 3×3, 3×5 or 5×5 zone from the 77-point auto focus area and the camera continues tracking a subject in the selected zone when using AF-C continuous focusing mode. The 3×3 and 3×5 zones at the center use the sensor’s built-in phase detection pixels.
The Wide/Tracking mode allows you to maintain focus on a subject that moves vertically, horizontally, and back and forth across the entire 77-point AF area.
Other improvements include Auto Macro Mode that automatically switches the camera into the Macro mode, thus freeing the Macro function assigned to the Macro Button and allowing you to assign a different function to that button; phase detection pixels increased sensitivity from 2.5EV to 0.5EV; AF improvement in Movie mode; and, Eye Detection auto focus.

Panasonic Announces an Anamorphic Firmware Update for the LUMIX GH4
LAS VEGAS, NV 04/13/2015
Panasonic announced the release of a much anticipated firmware update Ver.2.2 for the award winning LUMIX GH4. This new firmware enables two new features, most notably the ability to record anamorphic video content.
Anamorphic lenses are used to create a cinemascope aspect such as 2.39:1 or 2.35:1. Panasonic discovered that cinematographers had been experimenting with the 4K PHOTO mode 4:3 aspect ratio in the LUMIX GH4 and vintage anamorphic cine lenses to achieve the classic Hollywood look of anamorphic film capture. Unlike complex digital post processing needed to achieve the look, many of the background distortion and light flare effects that became so popular with anamorphic film capture can now be achieved optically in the LUMIX GH4.
