Fuji X-T1 Firmware Update Guide Now Available!

Tony Phillips, the guy who’s written two great books about Fuji cameras already, the X100S and X-T1, has released a guide to the latest X-T1 Firmware Update version 3.0.  Like his other books, this one is well researched, beautifully written, and full of insights into the update.

The update has at least 27 new / improved features for the X-T1 and some of Tony’s favorites include:  additional customization of the reprogrammable Q-Menu, more Function button items, high-speed electronic and hybrid shutter, a new Chrome film simulation, and manual focus tweaking in autofocus.  In this free update, you’ll find great information about all of these and more.

To get your Free copy, you’ll need to send an email request to Tony Phillips (click his name to send the email).  Or, if you haven’t bought his X-T1 book yet, go to The Friedman Archives to purchase the primary book and get the Firmware update included.

BTW, Tony is currently working on his next book … about the Fuji X100T, so stay tuned for that release.
