Fujifilm has released a new firmware update for its flagship X-Pro2 mirrorless camera.
Firmware update version 2.0 for the X-Pro2 adds the autofocus algorithm to be in-line with the weather-sealed X-T2 model. The new autofocus algorithm comes to the X-Pro2.
The only exception is the AF-C Custom Settings functions. The number of focus point will be increased from 77 to 91 points and from 273 to 325 points to improve framing.
Fujifilm also announced a little firmware update version 3.70 for the X-Pro1. Many Fujinon lenses got a firmware update too. It simply improves tracking function of parallax correction in the OVF. Details and download links can be found below.

Other improvements coming with the 2.00 firmware include:
- compatibility with the new hot-shoe mount flash EF-X500 will enable wireless multi-flash lighting with TTL control up to three groups and high-speed flash sync.
- AUTO POWER OFF will now have 15 sec, 30 sec, and 1 min. 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.
