Installing this firmware update will add new support for the “FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO” software which allows the user to connect the camera to a computer via USB cable for developing raw files in camera. The new firmware will also improve third party studio flash controller usability.
*Firmware Ver.2.00 -due late December
New features in the FUJIFILM X100F include the Built-In ISO Dial, incorporated into the Shutter Speed Dial reminiscent of film cameras of yesteryear, the focus lever, which allows you to instantaneously move the focus area without having to take your eye off the viewfinder, and the “C” position for enabling ±5 stop exposure compensation. Most of the operation-related buttons and dials are concentrated on the right-hand side to allow quick change of settings while firmly holding the camera.
You can now change the magnification of the electronic rangefinder, shown in a small window as EVF at the bottom right corner of the optical viewfinder, for enhanced accuracy when checking the focus. The Real Time Parallax*** Correction function is applied to the focus area in addition to the guide frame to enable assured framing and focusing in the Manual Focus mode.
The Film Simulation function now features the ACROS mode. Using X-Processor Pro’s advanced processing capability, the mode offers smooth gradation, deep blacks and beautiful textures to create monochrome images that far outperform the previous Monochrome mode.
The FUJIFILM X100F features the 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III, an APS-C sensor with no low-pass filter boasting the highest performance in the history of the X Series, as well as the X-Processor Pro high-speed image processing engine to deliver outstanding color reproduction and gradation of tones in both stills and videos with high ISO sensitivity and low noise.
The FUJIFILM X100F’s lens has a built-in ND filter, which is useful when shooting with the aperture wide open in bright light, or when opting to use a slow shutter speed. The three-stop ND filter, which cuts down the amount of light to 1/8, can be activated easily with the function button or from the camera menu.
ND Filter OFF
New conversion lenses are optically designed to draw out the maximum performance of FUJIFILM X100F’s built-in lens, delivering premium picture quality without having to change the F stop value. The camera body automatically recognizes it when a conversion lens is mounted, and displays a guide frame indicating the shooting area when in the OVF mode.
