If there is one major criticism that many users have about the Fujifilm X-T1 it would be its autofocus system which many felt could be improved upon. The good news is that last month Fujifilm announced that they would be releasing a major firmware update that would do just that and if you’re wondering when it would drop, wonder no more.

Fujifilm has officially released the firmware for the X-T1, bumping it up to version 4.0! The update will bring about some pretty major changes to the camera which some have described that in some ways, it makes it feel like a brand new device. For starters, there will be a zone and wide tracking modes that helps to capture moving subjects better.

The autofocus system has been improved upon greatly and is more more accurate at focusing on single-point targets. There is also the addition of eye detection autofocus which the company claims will result in more beautiful portraits, an auto macro mode, improved autofocus in movie mode for smoother videos, and also improvements in the shutter speed dial operation.

The update should be available for download already so maybe you’ll want to head on over to Fujifilm’s website for the download. In the meantime you can watch the video above put together by the folks at The Camera Store which will take you through some of the changes.
