Last week, Fujifilm released a ‘Kaizen’ v4.0 firmware upgrade for the Fujifilm X-T2, giving the camera support for internal F-log and 120fps slow motion recording in HD.
X-T2 gets internal F-log
The firmware upgrade will allow F-log movie data to be recorded directly to the camera’s SD card without having to use the HDMI port and an external recorder. This will allow more mobility, while allowing users to capture optimal dynamic range.
The autofocus has been improved
The X-T2’s low light limit has been improved by 1.5 stops from 0.5EV to -1.0EV. So essentially, the X-T2 should be able to focus better in the dark. The camera’s phase detection aperture minimum has also been upgraded from f/8 to f/11 and the AF-C should work better during zooming.
Better slow-mo capture
After the firmware upgrade, the X-T2 now features 120 frames per second capture in 1080p HD.
The X-T2 now features focus bracketing
Greater depth of field can now be achieved on the X-T2 through focus bracketing. Focus shift can be set from 1 to 10 and the focal point is shifted with every exposure for up to 999 frames.
Other improvements include compatibility with the Fujinon MKX18-55mm T2.9 and Fujinon MKX50-135mm T2.9 cinema lenses. “Flicker Reduction” has been includes and users can now enlarge and customize indicators and info in the LCD and viewfinder.
Also, “Select Folder” and “Create Folder” have been included and Fujifilm’s X Acquire software can now store and backup camera settings to and from files.
Pricing and Availability
These upgrades are free for X-T2 and you can download the firmware version 4.00 at Fujifilm’s website.
