Fujifilm X-T3 FINALLY Gets 4GB Clip Limit Fix With Firmware Update 2.1

Fujifilm Full Frame Promise
After previously announcing a fix with update 2.0, Fujifilm has finally removed the 4GB clip limit with firmware update 2.1.

Originally released at the tail end of 2018, firmware update 2.0 promised to (among other things) remove the hindering 4GB clip limit for the Fujifilm X-T3.

As a popular (and frankly, welcomed) addition to the mirrorless 4K video camera market (read our full hands on review of the X-T3 here), Fujifilm’s issue with splitting movie files once they hit 4GB has been frustrating for some filmmakers and video professionals. Especially with the promise of removing the clip limit with the last firmware update.

It’s worth noting that this new firmware update 2.1 will only apply to SDXC cards and will only work when using SD cards greater than 32GBs (so 64GB SD would be ideal). If you still want to use SD cards 32GB or lower, the 4GB clip limit will still be in place.

From the Fujifilm support page, the full update list:

  • Recording over 4GB movie file as one file Movie files are no longer split when the file reaches 4GB file size. The file is recorded as one file providing an SD memory card greater than 32GB is used (excludes 32GB) (*1).
    *1:By using SD memory cards less than or equal to 32GB, movie recording will continue without interruption when the file size reaches 4GB, however, subsequent footage will be recorded to a separate file.
    Note:Format SD memory cards before first use, and be sure to reformat all memory cards after using them in a computer or other device.

  • 2. Fix of slight defects.
