Regarding the detail, download the “X-S10 New Features Guide[2.00]” from our website.
Support for tethered shooting
The new firmware adds tethered shooting capability, which can be used by connecting the X-S10 to a computer installed with either “Capture One”*1, “Tether Shooting Plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®” or “FUJIFILM X Acquire.” The tethered shooting function can be used both via the USB cable connection and also wirelessly over a Wi-Fi network.
*1 Today, Capture One is not compatible with the X-S10 tether shooting function. The Capture One is to be upgraded. For detail, visit the website below.
Firmware enables remote control functionality from gimbal via USB communications
With this firmware update, combining the X-S10 with a compatible gimbal that supports remote control functionality will allow users to start / stop video recording, specify exposure settings for video (shutter speed, aperture value, ISO sensitivity and exposure compensation), and make manual focus adjustments. Guilin Zhishen Information Technology Co., Ltd (ZHIYUN) has announced the intention of offering compatible products for the new X-S10 firmware update.
The new firmware adds a Lock option to the settings for buttons and dials in the Setup menu. By enabling the function, the unintended changes of dial / button settings will be prevented.
Improvement of shutter speed setting for TTL slow sync flash shooting
In P and A mode, this firmware makes the slowest shutter speed slower than 1/8 sec. for the shooting used in a scene where relatively long exposure is required (ex. a flash shooting with night view background). In case the shutter speed setting is AUTO, the shutter speed becomes max. 4 sec in P mode and max. 30 sec. in A mode.
Display of “IP ADDRESS” in Setup Menus > CONNECTION SETTING > INFORMATION is added.
In case of using the FUJIFILM X Webcam the option in the menu changes from “X WEBCAM” to “USB TETHER SHOOTING AUTO”. Also, the setting screen displayed on a PC can be used.
The phenomenon is fixed that the position of the spot metering is fixed on the center without reflecting the postion of the focus area in case the focus mode is MF and the metering mode the spot.
The phenomenon is fixed that an image cannot be played back with a specified file name created by the EDIT FILE NAME function.
Fix of minor bugs.
The firmware update Ver.1.04 from Ver.1.02/1.03 incorporates the following issues:
For the case that “AUTO” is selected by the Mode Dial and a face is detected in a dark environment, a setting is changed to avoid a blur image caused by hand shaking and/or moving subjects.
A camera doesn’t recognize an Apple Silicon Mac via a USB cable.
Fix of minor bugs.
The firmware update Ver.1.02 from Ver.1.01 incorporates the following issues:
In case that AUTO is selected by the Mode Dial or AUTO is selected in MIN. SHUTTER SPEED of ISO setting, the shutter speed setting is changed to avoid a blur image caused by hand shaking and/or moving subjects.
ELECTRONIC LEVEL can be used when AUTO is selected by the Mode Dial.
Fix of a minor bug.
The firmware update Ver.1.01 from Ver.1.00 incorporates the following issue:
The phenomenon is fixed that while the microphone/remote release connector is used, a camera doesn’t work well in a specific condition. If you use a microphone or a remote release, make sure to upgrade the firmware.
