The X100 is proving to be a great camera I never want to leave home without. It's so light, yet capable and is a conversation piece everywhere I go. As the camera matures in the market, firmware upgrades will be released to improve some of the functions folks are commenting on. The first release, which will be a minor one, is set for Thursday the 21st. As we ramp up with the camera and it ships to the USA dealers next week I am confident we will see more upgrades to improve the excellent photographic experience.
This image from last night was shot at F/11 @ 3.2 seconds ISO 200 in Velvia film simulation. The odd line across the water in foreground is a duck.
Follow Up: Thank you for all the constructive comments. I can assure you they will be shared with the right folks as Fujifilm NAC (USA). This firmware change will be very minor (.01). It is just a tweak as things are evaluated and changes are made based on worldwide feedback. I am sure we all know some things are possible and others more challenging. Thank you for the detailed list and other comments to pass on. Now is the time for a bit of patience as all things cannot be immediately addressed. I'm happy to see the effort made in respect to this firmware and I am sure many more will follow.
The cameras should be at USA dealers to ship to their customers on or about the 27th.
Follow up #2 - Just a quick note to those who have the camera, and those who get the camera then update the firmware tomorrow, you must follow the directions and heed this warning:
If the camera is turned off during upgrade period, the camera will be completely broken and cannot be recovered. Make sure you charge the battery beforehand.
