Fujifilm will release a new firmware version 4.0 for the Fujifilm X-T3 mirrorless camera on October 28, 2020.

Main updated features:

Due to be released on October 28, 2020

Firmware version: FUJIFILM X-T3(Ver. 4.0)

1. Faster autofocus performance

The fastest AF speed has been improved from 0.06 seconds to 0.02 seconds, equivalent to the performance of the X-T4. The algorithm for predicting subject movements has also been updated which means the expected ‘hit rate’ is now 90% or more , making it even more likely that users will capture that precious moving photo moment.

  • AF tracking performance has been doubled*. Press the shutter button halfway down when a subject is in  the focus area to maintain focus on the subject with a higher level of accuracy.
  • The Face Tracking / Eye AF performance has also been upgraded. The algorithm has been re-written to double* the tracking performance of the Eye AF in continuous shooting modes. The camera can attain focus on a face or eyes quicker and more accurately even when shooting portraits that involve some movement.
  • The update also allows the camera AF to work in low light levels down to -7EV**, facilitating fast and highly-accurate phase detection AF even in near darkness.
  • The new firmware adds the “Focus Limiter” function which gives a pre-define specific focus range.

*When compared with the Firmware Ver. 3.30
**When using the FUJINON Lens XF50mmF1.0 R WR

2. Miscellaneous

  • The size of the Single AF point can be adjusted during video recording.
  • Photo ratings can now be read by third-party software, allowing users to find their favorite pictures quickly.
  • Ratings to images recorded in the [Jpeg + RAW] mode are applied to both Jpeg and RAW files.
