What's new about this version 2.0 upgrade?

Some may think of the update as not groundbreaking, but changing camera settings during an online meeting or even using "film simulation" is a welcome thing.

The upgrade creates the "X Webcam 2" icon. When you click the icon, a control panel will appear and you can change some of the camera's settings, including:

  • Film simulation.
  • Instant AF, AE lock and digital zoom.
  • Exposure compensation and white balance.

This update is compatible with all cameras mentioned above, with the exception of the X-T200 and X-A7. Options and magnification also depend on the models. For X-Pro2 users, INSTANT AF and AE LOCK can be used in MF mode.

Availability

This FUJIFILM X Webcam v2.0 is now available here on the FUJIFILM website.
