Some might consider the update not to be groundbreaking, however changing camera settings during an online meeting or even use “Film simulation” is a welcoming thing.

The upgrade will create the “X Webcam 2” icon. If you click the icon, a control panel appears and you can change some settings of the camera, including:

  • Film simulation.
  • Instant AF, AE Lock, and digital zoom.
  • Exposure compensation and white balance.

This update is compatible with all the cameras mentioned previously, except the X-T200 and X-A7. Also, options and magnification depend on the models. Finally, for X-Pro2 users, the INSTANT AF and AE LOCK can be used in MF mode.

The quality of the webcam app is far inferior to using a physical capture card in the machine.

And the lack of being able to use the camera as a webcam when using it with ALL applications makes the software absolutely useless.

Yeah, but assuming you already have the camera, this is a freebie that adds utility to your camera and creative control to your conference calls. I agree, the limitations are frustrating and arbitrary, but 90% of my calls are over Zoom these days. Personally, I appreciate having this option without having to buy a capture card

Thanks for the post. Will give it a try. Should be a good option for a Mac Mini, which has no integrated webcam.
