    I have had a scoot round the net but can not find any info on how you actually update the firmware on the X100. Can someone tell me or point me to a good site/video as I want to update my firmware.

    Thanks guy's

    The instructions are on the Fuji site... have you been to download? You can't actually get it until you've read through screeds of instruction on how to. What I usually do, rather than use their application to load the file to an SD card, is do it myself.
    a) format your sd card in camera
    b) insert card into card reader
    c) transfer the .DAT file to the root of the SD card. and install

    Firmware for FinePix X100 | Fujifilm Global

    Once you agree to the terms of use, you are taken to the next page which gives full instructions for how to check what you have, and how to do the update itself.

    Andy, I can't think that it would matter. However you could wait to hear from someone else, if you'd like. I haven't updated mine yet, I don't think.

    One thing to remember is to write down your settings before you update it!

    Andy just load up the latest version and you're good to go. There's no reason to NOT have the latest.....no issues with the current firmware.

    Temptation is good. If you resist, you're good.....if you cave in, you're good :wink:
