Valhalla, N.Y. – Fujifilm North America has added a new firmware update for the X-E2, adding new functions while improving performance to mirrorless compact system camera.
Fujifilm’s new firmware improves the X-E2’s electronic viewfinder (EVF) lag time to just 0.005 seconds.
The firmware also enhances the frame rate of the viewfinder allowing the highest frame rate to be maintained even in low light conditions or night-time photography, for smooth live view images through the lens.
Other improvements in the firmware include: selectable colors in Focus Peak Highlight, allowing the selection of blue or red in addition to the original white, to highlight areas of strong contrast.
The strength of the color display can be adjusted between High and Low according to the type of your subject or personal preference.
Users can now assign the face detection and EVF/LCD Setting selection options to two function buttons and two customizable AE/AF buttons in shooting mode.
When set to EVF/LCD Setting, the button is used to switch between four modes, including Eye Sensor Mode (automatically switches the EVF and LCD displays when the user's eye comes close to the viewfinder), EVF Only, LCD Only, and EVF Only + Eye Sensor.
Once the firmware is updated, a Suppressed Flash mode (where the flash does not fire even when the subject is poorly lit) can be selected from the flash menu.
The new X-E2 firmware is available now and can be downloaded at Fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/.
