Fujifilm releases huge firmware update for GFX series cameras

Comments Comments

Fujifilm has released a huge firmware upgrade package for the GFX100 and GFX 50 cameras.

The GFX100 gains the more significant updates, including the ability to output 12-Bit ProRes RAW video externally to the Atomos Ninja V. This should allow for greater processing latitude than the compressed files the camera saves internally. Interestingly, the update also allows the ability to record to an internal memory card simultaneously. 

In addition, Fujifilm says as a response to customer feedback the firmware update also expands the camera's USB controls, improiving usability when shooting tethered, and allowing remote control when mounted on a drone or gimbal.

The new firmware also gains improvements to both cameras phase detection autofocus (AF) in low-light conditions, down to -5EV. The firmware also gives a Low Light Priority AF-S mode to the GFX 50S and GFX 50R, to improve AF accuracy in low light. New focus bracketing options have also been added.

Additionally, the GFX100 gains the Classic Neg and Eterna Bleach Bypass Film Simulations introduced since its launch, and the “ETERNA” mode, which replicates the colors and tonality of Fujifilm’s motion picture film, will be added to the GFX 50S and GFX 50R.
