FUJIFILM X-T3 and X-H1 Firmware Updates Now Available

FUJIFILM issued new firmware updates for its X-T3 and X-H1 camera today. These are free updates, but please be aware that the much anticipated “recording over 4GB movie file as one file” update on the X-T3 has been suspended. FUJIFILM will announce the schedule of releasing an additional firmware update with that feature during January 2019. ( Fujifilm X-H1 does get the “recording over 4GB movie file as one file” feature).

FUJIFILM X-T3 – Recording over 4GB movie file as one file coming in 2019

At InterBEE 2018, we talked with FUJIFILM about the new features that are coming with the new V2.0 firmware and in case you missed it, here they are:

FUJIFILM X-T3 Firmware Update

  • Simultaneous video output with different profiles is now supported: You can now display Film Simulation on an external monitor while recording in F-LOG internally. Note that you can’t do it in 4K 60p due to a hardware limitation.
  • 4K HDR recording: the new firmware adds support for 4K HDR video recording in the Hybrid LOG Gamma (HLG)
  • Display color temperature (Kelvin) on EVF/LCD
  • Supports slower shutter speeds with DCI4K/4K 29.97P/25P/24P/23.98P
  • Using H.264 compression, you will now to be able to select ALL-Intra at a maximum bitrate of 400Mbps.
  • Display power supply icon (Power supply icon is displayed on EVF/LCD while using AC adapter (AC-9VS), or Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD *8 and Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD)

According to FUJIFILM, “the new function “Recording over 4GB movie file as one file” which was planned to add to the firmware Ver.2.00, we will announce the schedule to release the firmware with the function in January 2019“.

Ver. 2.00 firmware is a free update, and you can download it here.

Fujifilm X-H1 Firmware Update

Also, a new firmware update is available for the Fujifilm X-H1. The main improvements are:

  • In-body image stabilization and optical image stabilization now work together to improve overall stability. (You might need to update your lens firmware for best performance.
  • Recording over 4GB movie file as one file (Movie files are no longer split when the file reaches 4GB file size. The file is recorded as one file providing an SD memory card greater than 32GB is used)

Ver. 2.00 firmware is a free update, and you can download it here

FUJIFILM GFX 50S

For photo enthusiasts, the FUJIFILM GFX 50S has an update too. The new firmware adds a new 35mm format mode, that is available when GF- and H-mount adapters are used. This mode creates a 30.5MP image by cropping the large 43,8 x 32,9mm sensor into a more traditional 36mm x 24mm.

Ver. 3.30 firmware is also a free update, and you can download it here.

If you are an X-T3 owner. Will you still update your camera although the anticipated recording over 4GB movie file as one file has been removed? Let us know in the comment section below.

As much as I appreciate Fujifilm‘s kaizen approach to firmware upgrades this time it‘s more than disappointing. HDMI Record bug was not fixed, there is a bug with cropping that got introduced with 2.0 and they dropped the only worthwhile announced feature: no 4GB file limit. The upgrade seems rushed and sloppy. I hope the announced January update comes fast and is a more relieable release.

What’s the HDMI record bug Florian?

When recording to an Atomos Shogun Inferno and triggering the recording from the X-T3 it sometimes happens that the Inferno reports a dropped frame by displaying a Kangaroo-symbol. This happens right from the start of the clip, so you don’t see wether during the recording a real drop-frame occurs.

That’s strange, does it actually drop a frame in the recorded file?
