Fujifilm’s X-Pro2 was announced way back in January with a 24.3-megapixel APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS III sensor, being able to record video at 1080p at 60 fps and being the first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera to feature dual memory card slots. It quickly became one of the mirrorless markets leading cameras.
Fujifilm has just released firmware version 2.00, a huge update for the X-Pro2 which boosts its capabilities, and improves and enhances a number of features putting it on par, and standing it alongside, the X-T2 as one of their two flagship cameras.
The first big change that this firmware update brings about is a new autofocus algorithm which is used on the X-T2 and will now be available on the X-Pro2. The focus is now even more accurate and the AF tracking in AF-C mode is improved. The number of focus points will be increased from 77 to 91 points (13×7) and from 273 to 325 points (25×13) to improve framing.
The update also adds compatibility with the new hot-shoe mount flash EF-X500 which will enable wireless multi-flash lighting with TTL control with up to three groups and high-speed flash sync.
Auto power off will now have 15 seconds, 30 seconds, and 1 minute options. Auto power save function, which was previously only available in economy mode, is now available as an option in high performance and standard modes to allow users to minimize battery power consumption.
AF point position interlocked with parallax will be displayed to provide a more accurate and easier to use optical viewfinder even when Corrected AF frame function is set to off.
