Long-awaited Auto ISO and some other stuff

Yesterday I downloaded firmware 3.1 for my Fuji X-Pro1. This newest FW includes the long-awaited implementation of the minimum shutter speed for Auto ISO. And I have to say that I am very much pleased to it. The fastest shutter speed that you can select is 1/500 s which is great. I usually like to use something in range of 1/125 – 1/320 s to freeze the action and keep the ISO in the acceptable range in the same time. Another big feature addition in this FW is the possibility to change aperture and shutter speed when the shutter button is half pressed and get immediate feedback of those changes in the viewfinder or LCD. Very cool and so needed feature. After this FW I am enjoying my X-Pro1 even more.

Yesterday we were at the skiing slopes and I had my X-Pro1 with me. All had great time.

At last…

…the minimum shutter speed can be selected for Auto ISO in Fuji’s X-Pro1! New 3.10 firmware is coming out on 5th of December and it will include this important and so much expected feature. After this FW the Auto ISO is really usable in X-Pro1 and I will be using it instantly. You will be able to go down to 1/500 seconds which is great.

Another great improvement will be that aperture and shutter speed can be changed once AE lock is selected. Cool!

Thumbs up for Fuji for caring and listening their customers.

Found these little fellows from our backyard. This is shot at ISO 3200 in very dimly lit woods. The result is not bad, I think. Of course there is noise but it is quite pleasing in appereance and color tones are nicely produced even at high ISOs. This is one of the main things which make Fuji X100 to shine. I can use auto ISO all the time and not to worry about noise or color rendering.

And this is just a very quick snapshot. Handheld. Not any planning before shooting. Just shoot. Aperture mode f/5.6, auto ISO, no flash. JPEG.
