Fujifilm has announced it will release new firmware for the X-T3 that will enable controls for video recording from gimbals and drones via USB.

Fujifilm is currently developing the new drone, gimbal compatibility firmware and plans to release it around mid-December. The company says it also plans to expand the new video capabilities to other camera models in its range.

The new X-T3 firmware update, version 3.10, will include the following new features:

Gimbal and drone support

  • Starting and ending video recording
  • Adjusting exposure settings (exposure mode, shutter speed, aperture, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation) for video recording
  • Making manual focus adjustments

Fujifilm is developing the new X-T3 firmware with SZ DJI Technology Col Ltd and Zhiyun.

Fujifilm is also planning to release firmware version 3.20 for the X-T3 in January 2020, which promises to add the following:

  1. Enhanced autofocus
  • Improving the tracking performance of the eye AF frame, making it easier to attain accurate autofocus on the eyes
  • Improving face-detection performance when there are faces of different sizes within the same frame, making it easier to attain accurate autofocus
  • Improving autofocus capability on a foreground subject even when there is a mixture of foreground and background subjects within a frame, causing the foreground subject to go out of focus, e.g. when shooting flowers against a busy background
  1. Capability to save up to 9,999 pictures in each folder

Until now, the number of pictures that can be saved in a folder on an SD card was limited to 999. This update will raise the limit by ten times to 9,999 pictures.
