- Fujifilm releases a new software update for Fuji X100V.
- The software adds an Auto Power Off Temp option to fix overheating issues.
- There are two settings available for this feature: Standard and High.
Fuji X100V was launchd by Fujifilm early this year with a 23mm fixed lens. Since then, the camera was facing a problem of sudden power off because of overheating issues. This is why, the X100V just got an amusing update.
Fujifilm is fixing this unexpectedly camera shutdown problem by adding an Auto Power Off Temp option in the menu. This option allows you to set the temperature level at which your camera will overheat and turn off. The option cannot control the camera's thermals entirely, but the software update can surely help the users to fix the problem to some extent.
Fuji X100V is a compact camera and was never designed to shoot lengthy 4K videos in the first place. So the good bit, the brand acknowledged the overheating issue and came up with an automated option to fix it.
As for the software update (version 1.10), it is free and adds an Auto Power Off Temp option in the Power Management menu. As stated in the updated user manual, this is how the new feature works: "If its temperature rises beyond a certain point, the camera will first display a message and then, if the temperature rise continues, automatically end shooting and power down. [Auto Power Off Temp allows you to] choose the temperature at which the camera turns off automatically."
There are two settings available for this feature: Standard and High.
The steps to update the software are simple:
1. Check the firmware version.
2. Prepare a formatted memory card.
3. Download the firmware and copy it to the card.
4. Put the memory card with the firmware in the camera and update it.
