Firmware Updates

Fujifilm X-E2 Gets X-T1 Real-Time Viewfinder Firmware Upgrade

Wed April 30, 2014

Fujifilm does it again: instead of requiring us to “upgrade” to a new model version to get significant improvements, they have gone and once again freely handed it to their users with a firmware upgrade.

Talk about commitment from a company to its users. Wouldn’t be surprised if Fujifilm begets a new breed of fiercely loyal users in return. After all, when you buy the Fujifilm X-E2, you don’t just get an award-winning DSLR-replacement camera, you also get a whole system that supports it — and Fujifilm’s system is quickly building up to becoming one of the very best available.

NEW FIRMWARE UPDATE BRINGS FUJIFILM X-T1 VIEWFINDER PERFORMANCE AND MORE TO THE AWARD-WINNING X-E2

Firmware v.2.00 brings even more value to the premium X-E2 with performance gains and new functions

Mississauga ON, April 30, 2014 – As a leader in advanced digital camera technology and outstanding image resolution, Fujifilm Canada today announced a significant new firmware update for the FUJIFILM X-E2 that gives customers improved performance, added functions and outstanding value.

With the release of the new firmware, the X-E2’s electronic viewfinder (EVF) is further improved and now has a lag time of just 0.005 seconds, considered by many to be close to a “Real Time Viewfinder.” The firmware also enhances the frame rate of the viewfinder and the highest frame rate is maintained even in low light conditions or nighttime photography, providing smooth live view images through the lens.

In addition to the performance improvements, the new firmware adds:

Selectable colours in Focus Peak Highlight

Users can now select Blue or Red in addition to the original White, to highlight areas of strong contrast. The strength of the colour display can be also adjusted between High and Low according to the type of your subject or personal preference.

Added options for Fn (Function) buttons and customizable AE/AF buttons

Users can now assign the “Face Detection” and “EVF/LCD Setting” selection options to two function buttons and two customizable AE/AF buttons in shooting mode. When set to “EVF/LCD Setting,” the button is used to switch between four modes, including “Eye Sensor Mode” (automatically switches the EVF and LCD displays when the user’s eye comes close to the viewfinder), “EVF Only,” “LCD Only” and “EVF Only + Eye Sensor.”

Suppressed Flash option

Once the firmware is updated, a Suppressed Flash mode (where the flash does not fire even when the subject is poorly lit) can be selected from the flash menu.

With the addition of the new firmware, the FUJIFILM X-E2 continues on its promise to deliver picture quality that rivals full-frame cameras with high definition image capture, Fujifilm’s legendary colour reproduction and category-leading speed.

The new X-E2 firmware is available now and can be downloaded at http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/.

Leica throws its hat into the Mirrorless Camera Market with the T-System

Thu April 24, 2014

If ever we needed to know for sure that the mirrorless camera market was not just a fad, but is here to stay, we heard it loud and clear today from none other than Leica. Throwing its hat into the mirrorless camera market with its new T-System gives the mirrorless camera market a stamp of approval (though common sense should already have made it clear for all) that this is how cameras are supposed to be for the forseeable future.

Of course, the Leica T is not Leica’s first compact mirrorless camera: the Leica M has that distinction. The T adds autofocus lenses.

We are surprised that Leica has abandoned its traditional shutter speed/aperture ring controls to instead use twin dials and reliance on a touchscreen. Certainly it is targeting a different audience than those who buy its M-System cameras.

Whether the Leica T gets the traction it needs to break into a market that every other mirrorless player is struggling to stay alive in will depend on the big question: What kind of pictures does it take? Since the Leica T uses the same 16MP APS-C CMOS sensor used in the X-Vario zoom, we may already have our answer.

PRESS RELEASE

Debut of the New Leica-T System

Celebrating the Essence of Leica; 100 years of Innovation.

Los Angeles, California–April 24th, 2014 — Leica Camera continues to celebrate its journey into the future with the launch of the radically new yet brilliantly familiar Leica T-System. The Leica-T was designed with dynamic simplicity in collaboration with AUDI Design and it is the fourth system ever to be released from Leica. The Leica T-System features Wi-Fi, a rebuilt graphical user interface (GUI), Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®, a professional digital workflow solution for Apple Mac® OS X and Microsoft Windows®.

PRESS RELEASE

Sony’s α7S Full-Frame Camera Realizes a New World of Imaging Expression

Features newly developed, wide dynamic range sensor with awe-inspiring sensitivity

SAN DIEGO, April 6, 2014 – Joining the acclaimed α7 and α7R family of the world’s smallest full-frame interchangeable lens cameras1, Sony’s new α7S model puts extraordinary sensitivity, low noise and spectacular 4K video quality into the hands of professional photographers and videographers.

The innovative α7S camera features a newly developed, 12.2 effective megapixel 35mm Exmor® CMOS sensor paired with a powerful BIONZ X image processor, allowing it to shoot at a sensitivity range of ISO 50 – 4096002 with unprecedented dynamic range and low noise.

The new model is also the world’s first camera to utilize the entire width of a full-frame image sensor in 4K video acquisition, and does this without cropping or line skipping as it can read and process data from every one of the sensor’s pixels. This allows 4K video shooters to utilize all of the artistic and creative benefits provided by the unique sensor.

“The α7S gives Sony the most complete, versatile lineup of full-frame cameras in market today,” said Neal Manowitz, director of the interchangeable lens camera business at Sony Electronics.  “Between the α99, VG900, RX1, α7, α7R and now α7S models, we have completely revolutionized what it means to be a ‘full-frame’ camera, bringing a new level of quality and portability to enthusiast photographers and videographers.”
