The firmware for each model supports new application software “FUJIFILM XApp” for GFX and X series cameras.

“FUJIFILM XApp” is the advanced application software for the current one, “FUJIFILM Camera Remote”, with which wireless communication becomes more stable and faster so that images and movies transportation from the camera becomes more smooth and comfortable with the smartphone and tablet terminal.
Moreover, the operation with the smartphone and tablet terminal becomes much simpler than the current application software, since all the data transportation operations, except for the “Bluetooth Pairing” between camera and the application software required at the first time only, are completed with the smartphone and tablet terminal.
Adding on the “Live View Mode” and access/download functions of the data in camera, several new functions are available, such as “Backup/Restore” to store the setting data in the shooting and setup menus, “Timeline” to review the shooting information of the camera/lens, shooting count/location, etc. and “Activity” to show the accumulated summary of the shooting count total, film simulation usage, etc., which should make GFX and X series cameras attractive more and more.

Note-1: Please see NEWS RELEASE for the details of “FUJIFILM XApp”.
Fujifilm releases the FUJIFILM XApp for the GFX / X Series of digital cameras

Note-2: “FUJIFILM XApp” works with iOS/iPad OS 13 or later and Android OS 11 or later.
Please download the “FUJIFILM XApp” from the following site by selecting the OS version of your smartphone / tablet terminal and the camera.

Note-3: “FUJIFILM XApp” will be available as soon as it is ready.

“SELECT FRAMES” in “TRANSFER IMAGE TO SMARTPHONE” of the Playback menu has been changed to “SELECT IMAGE & TRANSFER”

The contents of the “SMARTPHONE TRANSFER ORDER” of “Fn1 BUTTON SETTING” in “BUTTON/DIAL SETTING” of setup menu has been changed and “SELECT & SMARTPHONE TRANSFER ORDER” has been added on.

Subject detection enhancement by AI (Artificial Intelligence).

(1) Current subject detection function improvement
Subject detection performance has been greatly improved in situations that were difficult to detect with the current firmware, such as “backlighting”, “looking sideways”, and “small subjects”. The subject detection function can be used more than ever, regardless of the scene.
(2) New subject category added “Insect” and “Drone” detection is newly realized In addition to the existing “Face”, “Eyes”, “Animal”, “Bird”, “Automobile”, “Motorcycle & Bike”, “Airplane” and “Train”. Insects can be detected by setting the subject as “Bird” and drones can be done by setting it as “Airplane”.

Dynamic tracking performance enhancement by the improved AF algorithm.

(1)The motion prediction algorithm has been improved to enable stable tracking of subjects moving at high speed in the frame.
(2)The AF focusing speed has been improved when continuous shooting is started by simultaneously pressing the AF-ON button and the release button while the camera is out of focus. The AF starts to focus at a faster rate than before, even in situations where the situation changes moment by moment, such as in sports. This makes it difficult to miss a shutter release opportunity, even in situations such as sports where the situation changes from moment to moment.

FUJINON lens, XF8mmF3.5 R WR has been available.

Other minor bugs have been fixed.

Other minor bug has been fixed.
