Fujifilm has just rolled out the firmware updates they announced last month for various members of the X-Series camera family, including the X-T1, X-E1, X-E2, and X-Pro1.

These include a new maximum shutter speed of 1/32000s, better control over the electronic viewfinder (EVF) and LCD screen, a Natural Live View function, better customization over the AE-L/AE-F button, PC tethering support, as well as new video frame rates including 24fps, 25fps, and 50fps.
The new features for the X-E2 include an interval timer shooting function for timelapse photography and enhanced wireless functionality using the Fujifilm Camera Remote app (iOS|Android). All of the firmware updates include a new "classic chrome" film simulation and AF+MF functionality allowing manual focus fine tuning in conjunction with autofocus.
