New Software & Firmware From Fujifilm!

  By Ryley Smith

 

Fujifilm GFX users, we have some exciting news for you! Firmware updates and new software! Fujifilm announced new firmware for the GFX 100, GFX 50S, GFX 50R and for Tether Plugin PRO! Then to make it more exciting, there is also a new software available, Pixel Shift Combiner! Check out all the new features below! 

New Pixel Shift Combiner Version 1.00

Pixel Shift Combiner is a software for the GFX100 that allows for Pixel Shift Multi-shot mode. In the Pixel Shift Multi-Shot mode, the camera takes a series of 16 RAW images and by using in-body image stabilization(IBIS), moves the image sensor to get a high-resolution and real colour* image. The multiple images are then combined to create a Digital Negative (DNG) RAW file using the FUJIFILM Pixel Shift Combiner software.

*real colour: As a pixel of an image sensor has one colour filter from red, green or blue, the GFX 100 cannot detect the real colour for the pixel. The GFX 100 needs to interpolate the other colours from the surrounding pixel data for that pixel. This is called the demosaicing process. In the case of Pixel Shift Multi-Shot photography, the GFX 100 can receive red, green and blue data for every pixel position. This means the GFX 100 can receive real colour information when using Pixel Shift Multi-Shot mode and the demosaicing process is not necessary.

New Features for the GFX100 Version 3.00:

  1. Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function has been added. 
  2. Ratings to images recorded in the [Jpeg + RAW] mode are applied to both Jpeg and RAW files.
  3. Issue fixed when using multiple-flash. The phenomenon is fixed that in a multiple-flash shooting where the EF-X500 is used as a commander, flashes in some groups sometimes don’t fire correctly. Also in case, the EF-X500 is used as a commander and the EF-60 as a remote flash, upgrade the camera firmware to the latest version.
  4. Accuracy of the Eye AF function for the front eye is improved.
  5. Minor bug fixes.
