Fujifilm has released firmware version 3.00 for the X-T3, which improves the camera’s face and eye detection AF performance, as well as AF speeds.

Among the upgrades in Fujifilm X-T3 firmware 3.00 from version 2.10 include:

  • Strengthened the accuracy of face / eye detection AF performance
    The AF algorithm has been improved along with the accuracy of face / eye detection AF. The ability to detect faces in the distance has been enhanced by approximately 30% and AF tracking is now more stable, even when an obstacle appears in the way. The improvements in AF are applicable to both still photos and video recording.
  • New Face Select function
    The Face Select function has been introduced to provide priority auto-focus, tracking and exposure on a selected subject when multiple faces have been detected. The priority face can be selected by using the touch screen or focus lever.
  • Faster AF speed for subjects at a distance
    A Double Tap Setting and Touch Function has been added to the touch screen settings*. The two settings must be set to OFF to provide a better touch screen response. These new settings allow a more intuitive touch operation when shooting, AF and focus area select.
  • Intuitive operation of touch screen
    A Double Tap Setting and Touch Function has been added to the touch screen settings(*1). The two settings must be set to OFF to provide a better touch screen response. These new settings allow a more intuitive touch operation when shooting, AF and focus area select.
    *1:By default, Touch Screen Setting, Double Tap Setting and Touch Function are set to all OFF. Touch Screen Setting must be set to ON to use the touch screen function.
  • Focus frame when EYE DETECTION SETTING
    When using EYE DETECTION SETTING, only focus frame on eye is displayed.
  • Improvement of AF/AE area tracking when using EVF
    When using the EVF, tracking function for AF/AE area movement by touch screen is improved.
  • Push function of the Focus stick when INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING
    The push function is disabled when INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING.
  • FLICKER REDUCTION function
    The options are changed from ON/OFF to ALL FRAMES/FIRST FRAME/OFF. And when choosing FIRST FRAME, the speed of CH countinuous shooting is imroved.
  • Message when IMAGE TRANSFER ORDER
    If there is no image of TRANSFER ORDER when turing on a camera, no message appears.
  • Fix of slight defects
