Early

adopters take note: Fujifilm has recalled the latest X-Pro1 firmware,

released on July 23, after reports of it causing malfunctions in the

camera’s video functionality

In

a statement on its website, Fujifilm apologised for the

error. ‘The phenomenon that a movie could not be recorded properly in

some cases has found in the firmware version 3.00,’ it said.

If

you’ve downloaded the faulty X-Pro1 firmware, head over to the

Fujifilm site
to download version 3.01, which should correct the

problem.

    Does this include the XE-1 and all the lens? Also why oh why was it not thoroughly tested prior to release?
