FUJIFILM Corporation has announced the release of free firmware updates for the FUJIFILM X-T100 and FUJIFILM X-A5 X Series digital cameras. The new firmware, which will be available in August 2018, adds two new Advanced Filters and an easily accessed Square mode.
The new Rich & Fine and Monochrome [NIR] Advanced Filters allow photographers to add artistic flair or filmlike color tones to their images. The Rich & Fine filter is recommended for food and other tabletop photography. It makes colors in the center of an image brighter and more vivid, while adding a slight shadow at the four corners of the frame to emphasize the subject. Monochrome [NIR] recreates the black & white effect achieved when shooting with a near-infrared camera or film.
Square mode allows users to switch to 1:1 format with a single swipe on the camera’s touch panel display, enhancing compatibility with social media platforms such as Instagram.
These new features are also available on the newly announced FUJIFILM XF10 digital camera.
