updated 09:30 am EDT, Wed June 22, 2011

Changes fix several user complaints

Fujifilm Canada has released the details of an upcoming firmware fix for the Finepix X100. A total of ten changes were announced via the firm's Twitter feed. The improvements include a more accessible "wake" option, a more visible reminder in the viewfinder when Eye Sensor mode is active, and setting permanance for ISO, Self-Timer, DR, Flash, and Macro settings when changing exposure mode, review mode or power state.

The ten firmware updates as announced on Twitter with the #Fuji and #X100 tags:


1. 1/3EV adjustments now available in all shooting modes
2. Red-eye removal can be disabled when shooting RAW
3. 'FN' button assignment menu can be activated with a long press of the FN button
4. Camera can be woken from sleep with regular half-press of shutter button (not long press)
5. Size of the AF area is maintained after switching from OVF/EVF/LCD
6. Holding down menu/ok button for 3secs locks 4-way controller (stops drive/flash/macro/WB from being accidentally set)
7. When 'eye sensor' mode is enabled, an 'Eye Sensor' reminder appears on the LCD display
8. Macro/ISO/DR/Self-timer/Flash settings are maintained when exposure mode, review mode or power state are changed/cycled
9. When Auto ISO control is set to 'on', actual ISO sensitivity is displayed on half-press of shutter button
10. When switching between shooting/playback mode, the last viewed photograph is remembered unless a new photograph is taken.

Fujifilm has not announced when the firmware update will be released. [via Digital Photography Review]
