What looks like a major firmware update released

I did not see it here, so am posting as a service:

What looks like a major firmware update.

Revised manual with all details:

I have not read all the detail, but someone seems to have been listening! kl

Kit

Thanks but this has been out for a while. It *is* a major improvement.

Still loving my X100.

Re: What looks like a major firmware update released

Thanks Kit, and yes it was a major update... Mine was already at rev 1.1 when I bought it a few weeks ago.

We're eagerly awaiting the next update - to add the final polish to an otherwise awesome camera.

Cheers

Brian

Oh dear; behind the pace!

I got direct notified thins morning, and had a quick look here and did not see a reference to it. Jack/Guy, delete the original if you wish; I don't think I can do that myself. Cheers, KL

Hmm

and what if you have Mac OSX 10.7?
the update is an old defunct 10.6 app.

Re: What looks like a major firmware update released

Phil; that's very interesting. When I get back home, I am seriously thinking that I will have to buy a recently current laptop and load up Snow Leopard on it—Lion has some nice features, but many problems, too. I am in Arizona at the moment, and Apple's main business tool, Mail, simply can't find its own SMTP server most of the time—and sometimes can, with all settings staying the same.

Re: What looks like a major firmware update released

You just need to copy the firmware file to the root of an SD card. The Fuji Apple update program is unnecessarily complicated - you only need to do the same as for any other camera firmware update: unzip the download and copy the .bin to your SD card root and then follow the rest of the instructions.

Re: What looks like a major firmware update released

Thanks Lee,

It's that easy! Why on earth did Fuji make an app to do something so simple?

I don't want to go off thread, but Lion is fine for me, no issues at all. This was the first problem I'd had.

Thanks,
Phil.

I'm at a loss to explain. And I lost 45 minutes of my life trying to do it the hard way. And failed.

Lee, you save/made my day I'm on 10.7 and downloaded and started to RTFM and it didn't work.

Now I just copied firmware file from iMac to SD, inserted SD in camera, updated and it's done. So simple. How people at Fuji can wrote 3 pages long FM and create useless soft for Mac/PC for updating
