Thanks....

Ok, this is for Mac users.
On the download page, on top you will see a file that is the update.
This is the file to use. Download it and put it on the card from the desktop.
Use a card reader!
Then insert the card to the camera, hold the disp button, power on the camera and follow instructions...
That's it...

Thank you, Photorx!!!! Don, a special thank you for calling me while I was still asleep to roust me out of my slumbers and walk me through it. MUCH easier this go 'round. First impression - just shot one picture in low light and the auto focus is much, much, much faster - yippeeee!:th_salute:

Now to learn more - got the Fn button menu option (excellent) and the locking of the controls via the OK button...more to learn as I wake up and you all post.:wink:

Here's what's in the update....


1. The following functions can be locked during shooting by holding down [MENU / OK] button over 3 sec.
DRIVE / Flash / White balance / Macro (set on the Command Dial - 4 direction key)
2. "CORRECTED AF FRAME" menu is added in "SET-UP" menu (the last line on menu page 6) to display additional AF frame (corrected AF frame for reducing parallax) which can be effectively used for macro shots. (Factory default value is set to "OFF")
3. Adjustment in1/3 step increment for shutter speed or aperture setting is enabled in Shutter-Priority AE and Aperture-Priority AE mode, on top of those in Manual Exposure mode.
Shutter-Priority AE : Adjustment is controlled by rotating the command dial
Aperture-Priority AE : Adjustment is controlled by moving left / right on the command control lever
4. In the post-view mode (display after shooting), focused area is magnified in the LCD (EVF) display when the command control lever is pressed.
Cf. "IMAGE DISP." Setting must be set to "CONTINUOUS",
5. Setting of the role for "Fn" button is enabled by holding down "Fn" button over 3 sec.
6. Actual ISO sensitivity for shooting is displayed just after pressing shutter button halfway, when "ISO AUTO CONTROLL" is set to ON.
7. When "eye sensor" is activated by pressing "VIEW MODE" button, "EYE SENSOR" is displayed on EVF / OVF or LCD just a while to notice the status.
8. Macro mode ISO sensitivity, Drive mode, Dynamic range, Self-timer mode, flash mode is maintained even if shutter speed setting or aperture setting is changed. Also, even after changing viewing mode into shooting mode or turning of the camera, these values are maintained.
9. The size of focus frame set through viewing EVF / LCD is maintained even after changing display mode between OVF and EVF (LCD).
10. When "SHUTTER SOUND" is chosen, each shutter sound is performed in each menu setting.
11. In viewing mode, the last viewed shot is maintained as even after changing into shooting mode.
Cf. After another image is shot after viewing former image, memory of viewing the image is cancelled and the last shot is displayed as the latest image.
12. When the aspect ration of the image size is set to 16:9, the line of bright frame line on OVF is displayed with aspect ratio 16:9.
13. Viewing mode with Photo Information on EVF / LCD is maintained even if another image is shot. On top of this issue, deleting picture directly is enabled even in viewing with Photo information by pressing the command dial up, or MENU operation is also enabled.
14. Occasionally, preview image on EVF / LCD after pressing the shutter halfway might be darker than live view, according to aperture setting or brightness of shooting target. This phenomenon is improved.
15. When "DISP. CUSTOM SETTING" is set to OVF or EVF / LCD, the setting value is maintained even after customizing the menu.
16. Even for only RAW data recording mode, "RED EYE REMOVAL" setting is selectable among ON or OFF.
17. In MF (manual focus) setting with OVF mode, OVF viewing is activated after pressing shutter half way, even if "FOCUS CHECK" (magnifying center of the image) is displayed in EVF by pressing the center of the command control lever.
18. Displaying period after pressing each command dial (Macro / Flash) is prolonged from 1.5 sec into 2.0 sec for confirming correctly.
20. For resuming from AUTO POWER OFF setting, the shutter release button was required to hold down halfway for a few second. For quicker operation, resuming is activated by just pressing the button.
21. Image quality captured by Velvia / ASTIA mode is improved on mainly shadow tone (dark area), when dynamic range is set to 200% or 400%.
22. When "OVF POWER SAVE MODE" is set to ON and "Fn" button is set to "MOVIE RECORDING", the camera may be unstable occasionally. This phenomenon is improved.
23. Histogram display on OVF during exposure compensation is improved.
The firmware up date ver.1.01 incorporates the improvement against inadequate operation shown in the following.
1. If the images are shot with ISO Bracketing mode when "QUICK START MODE"(*1) is set to "ON" and turn off the camera,the camera cannot be turned on again even with ordinary operation.
*1 Menu of "QUICK START MODE" is set to "OFF" as factory-default value.

No problem guys, I was about to go to bed when I decided at the last minute to check Fuji site just for fun......and there it was. Now I'm tired and falling asleep in pharmacotherapeutics class, lol.

17. In MF (manual focus) setting with OVF mode, OVF viewing is activated after pressing shutter half way, even if "FOCUS CHECK" (magnifying center of the image) is displayed in EVF by pressing the center of the command control lever.
This is a kind of cool setting. I have yet to completely "grok" the greatness but I know it's there.

No amnesty for Fuji. Very disappointed. They did not fix/improve my three biggest gripes (at least according to their list):

1) Auto ISO function should be on the same menu as ISO control like in 99.99% of digital cameras in the world;

2) Why can't I change ISO with the top control lever when I'm using the EVF, but i am allowed to do so if I'm using the OVF?

3) Allow customization of at least one more button in the camera for direct access similar to the Fn button.

Aww, shucks for you Armando. For some reason none of those things have ever bothered me. I will admit that another customization button would probably be very nice for many.

Armando, maybe I'm crazy but I believe that I am changing my ISO in AF-S in both the OVF and EVF while the camera is set internally on *Auto ISO.

*edited to correct my mistake.:redface:

I agree with Armanius. The move of auto ISO to the ISO menu is the first thing I hoped for. :confused:
Given that 99% of the digital cameras have both controls in the same menu, it almost feels like Fuji forgot about auto ISO, and just squeezed the control into the firmware as an after thought. Sigh ...

With the upper control lever as opposed to the lower control jog wheel?

And do you mean auto ISO as opposed to auto focus?

OK, sorry for my typo above. I've fixed it now. I did mean that I have set the internal settings to Auto ISO.

Yes, you're right in using the EVF to change your ISO, one needs to hit the Fn button and use the dial, as opposed to the lever that one can use while in the OVF. I'm sure there was some reason for this and it wasn't to annoy you.:wink: It doesn't bother me and I didn't even realize it.

*I'm just thrilled that I can leave it in Auto ISO and still change it if I want to.:biggrin:
