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.
This FUJIFILM X Webcam v2.0 is available now on FUJIFILM’s website here.
