Regarding the Malfunction of the FUJIFILM X-T2
To all loyal Fujifilm X Series customers and photographers,
It has been brought to our attention that there are a few issues with the recently released X-T2 ver 4.00 firmware update. We have therefore taken the difficult decision to remove the update from the website until we are confident that all the issues have been completely fixed.
We deeply apologize for any inconvenience and disappointment this has caused.
<Details of the Problem>
We have discovered malfunctions in the firmware ver.4.00 released on May 8 2018. They are as follows:
- When RAW files, which were taken by X-T2 (before firmware ver.4.00), are converted in camera (ver.4.00) or by “FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO”, they are not converted properly.
- When pressing the shutter button halfway under certain conditions, the live view can flicker.
- In rare cases, a hang-up can occur.
We have identified the cause and plan to release the upgraded firmware to address the malfunctions as soon as we can.
In the meantime, for customers who have upgraded the firmware to ver.4.00, the firmware ver.4.01*, whose functions are same as ver.3.00, have been posted on our website.
Please download it and update your camera.
- * Ver.4.01 doesn’t include the additional functions of ver.4.00.
Again, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused.
