Fujifilm X-T1 Firmware Ver. 4.00 new features:

1 . Zone & Wide/Tracking modes for accurate capture of moving subjects

Zone mode allows to choose a 3×3, 5×3 or 5×5 zone from the 77-point AF area. When combined with the AF-C continuous focusing mode, the camera tracks a subject in the centre of the selected zone. In the Wide/Tracking mode, the camera displays the area in focus, identified automatically out of the 77-point AF area, and tracks the subject across the entire 77-point AF area. This maintains focus on a subject that moves up/down, left/right or closer/further from the camera. The new AF system makes it easier than ever to capture moving subjects, dramatically increasing your shooting options.

2 . Delivering a more accurate focusing performance

Single-point AF divides the focus area into smaller sections to more accurately determine the distance to the subject for even greater focusing accuracy. The built-in phase detection pixels have the detection range of 0.5EV, an improvement from the previous 2.5EV, delivering phase detection AF performance that enables fast focusing in low-light conditions and on low-contrast subjects.

3 . Eye Detection AF – for more beautiful portraits

Activate Face Detection to automatically detect human faces and focus with Eye Detection AF to ensure accurate focus on human eyes, even when using a shallow depth-of-field. Combine these two functions to take your portrait photography to a new level.

4 . Auto Macro – close-up photography has never been easier

The new AF system features an Auto Macro function that eliminates pressing the Macro button before shooting close-ups while maintaining the conventional AF speed. This update eliminates the Macro function assigned to the Macro Button, allowing you to assign a different function to the button.

5 . Improved AF in the Movie mode for smoother video recording

The optimized algorithm delivers a more natural and smooth AF action during movie recording.

6 . Improved Shutter Speed Dial operation

When the Shutter Speed Dial is set to T and the Shutter Type to Mechanical + Electronic, you can use the command dial to set a full range of exposure times from 30-1/32000sec. Previously, this was limited to 30-2 seconds. This means you can change the shutter speeds across a broader range without having to change camera position. This is particularly useful when shooting in the portrait orientation with the Vertical Battery Grip VG-XT1 attached.

7 . Be more creative by using exposure compensation in the Manual exposure mode

You can use the Exposure Compensation dial to make exposure adjustments while shooting in the Manual exposure mode with the ISO Auto setting.

8 . Finer lines on the framing grid enhances visibility

The lines on the framing grid, which you can choose to display in the Screen Set-Up menu, have been made finer making it easier to view the subject.

9 . Name of Silent mode changed to avoid confusion

The Silent Mode has been renamed to “SOUND & FLASH OFF”.
