Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware Updates
The new V2.0 Firmware update is finally here for the Fujifilm X-T3 (as well as the X-H1), let’s take a look at what’s new.

Since first being announced a month ago (here’s our original write-up), Fujifilm has finally dropped its V2.0 firmware update for the Fujifilm X-T3 (as well as the X-H1). The X-T3 in particular has been a hot commodity for filmmakers and video professionals as it stacks up quite nicely in comparisons with the other mirrorless offerings on the market.

Here’s a good 4K Mirrorless Video Quality Comparison (EOS R, BMPCC 4K, Z7, A7III, X-T3) to check out.

So we’ve been excitedly waiting on this new update for the Fujifilm X-T3 and its updated 4K HDR and clip limit. Full details and download instructions below.

Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware Update V2.0

The big news for the X-T3 is definitely the addition of supporting 4K HDR video recording in Hybrid Log Gamme (HGL), which allows for capturing richer and more dynamic footage with a wider highlight shadow range.

However, many film and video professionals have really been interested in news about the V2.0 firmware update dropping the 4GB clip limit. There is a caveat though as you’ll need to make sure that you’re using SD cards 64GB or larger, and your clips will no longer be split past 4GB.
