Fujifilm have released an update to the X-T1 today brining some enhanced features and a few options people have been asking for – for example allowing the flash to fire in CL and CH modes for one.

The movie record button can now also be customised.

Download the firmware at the link below

To update, copy the downloaded file to an SD card (no need to format it), put it in the camera, press and hold DISP when turning the camera on and follow the instructions.

Detail of the update

The firmware update Ver. 4.20 from Ver.4.10 incorporates the following issues:

  • For detail about all the functions of No. 1-6, refer to “X-T1/X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition New Features Guide [Ver.4.20]”.
  • 1.Using a flashgun in Bracketing / Continuous shooting
    Optional flashguns can be used for bracketing and burst photography. When using the EF-X8, which is bundled with the X-T1, the flash fires in ISO, FILM SIMULATION and WHITE BALANCE BKT modes.
    ​*A flashgun may not fire in case it is not charged enough between shootings. And continuous shooting in CL and CH mode becomes ​slow when Focus mode is AF-C.
  • 2.Instant AF Setting in manual focus
    Focus and exposure can be locked when the AF-L button is used in manual focus mode. You can shoot after locking AF and AE with your thumb.
  • 3.AF+MF operation with AF-L button
    The AF-L button can be used to lock focus in AF+MF mode and you can adjust the focus more accurately using the lens’s focusing ring.
  • 4.Focus zoom in AF+MF
    The FOCUS ASSIST button can be used for focus zoom and you can focus using the lens’s focusing ring with focus zoom activated.
  • 5.Additional Custom Display options
    Functions have been added to the DISP. CUSTOM SETTING option in the setup menu.

    Additional Items: FOCUS FRAME / CONTINUOUS MODE / SHOOTING MODE / DUAL IS MODE / INFORMATION BACKGROUND / MOVIE MODE / FOCUS MODE / BLUR WARNING / SHUTTER TYPE

  • 6.The Fn7 Button
    The movie-record button doubles as an Fn button (Fn7). Press and hold DISP/BACK to select what it controls.
