FUJIFILM Corporation has released firmware updates for two of its X Series digital cameras: the FUJIFILM X-A5 and its predecessor, the X-A3.
After updating to firmware Ver.1.10, photographers shooting with the X-A5 will be able to enjoy anew autofocus algorithm, first seen on the recently launched X-T100 camera. This improves the speed and accuracy of the camera’s phase detection AF, helping photographers capture those unexpected special moments in pin-sharp focus. Movie makers will also be pleased with this update, which allows the X-A5 to capture video for longer – up to 30 min. When the movie file size reaches 4GB, a new file is started automatically, and the camera will continue to record without interruption.
To improve the shooting experience, information shown on the X-A5’s LCD touchscreen now adjusts automatically when the screen is rotated through 180 degrees, making it easier to read when shooting selfies. Screen performance when shooting continuously is also improved, as is LCD screen visibility in CL Low Speed Burst mode. And owners of both the X-A3 and the X-A5 can enjoy a usability improvement: both models now default to ISO 200 when switching into P, A, S, M and Adv. modes, instead of Auto ISO.
