Fujifilm says a new firmware update for the X100 – v2.0 – “dramatically improves” the camera’s performance.
This new firmware update includes improved autofocus and manual focus.
Autofocus is approximately 20 percent faster with enhanced focus distance compared to the previous firmware version. Close-up focus distance is shortened by 30 percent before needing to switch to macro mode.
A new Focus Peaking function assists in manual focusing by enhancing the outline of the subject in high contrast. There’s also improved focusing via the EVF or LCD when using wide apertures.
With the new firmware, camera start-up time has been shortened by approximately 0.2 seconds.
Pressing the AF button now toggles the focus area selection screen and the area of your choice can be selected.
