Fujifilm Releases The FUJIFILM Xapp For The GFX / X Series Of Digital Cameras


Controlling a camera remotely with the XApp

Transferring pictures saved in a camera with the XApp

Fujifilm has worked on broadening the appeals of photography and boosting shooting convenience by offering the GFX / X Series, FUJINON interchangeable lenses and the Camera Remote app. In the latest move, the company has developed the new XApp, featuring enhanced functions and performance, to add greater convenience to users' photographic experiences.

Compared to the previous Camera Remote app, the XApp provides more stable and faster wireless communications, making photo transfers from a camera to a smartphone / tablet much smoother. All communication operations can be completed on a smartphone / tablet with the exception of the initial bluetooth pairing between a camera and the app. This facilitates simplified operations for enhanced shooting experience.

The XApp allows users to remotely control a camera while checking the image of the camera's rear LCD monitor on the smartphone / tablet device. Using the new Backup/Restore function, users can save camera settings*2 such as Shooting menu and setup configurations in the app. Saved camera settings can be sent and applied to the camera quickly and easily even during a photo shoot.

The XApp's new functions include Timeline*3, which displays each day's shooting activity data, including the camera and lens used, number of frames taken and shooting locations alongside each of the transferred images in chronological order in the photo journal format. Users can edit titles and notes to create a unique photo journal with a personal touch. Another new function is Activity*3, which automatically aggregates and displays the cumulative number of frames taken, the number of times the Film Simulation function is used and other cumulative numbers, making it possible to reflect on past shooting activities along with corresponding photos and data. These functions advocate new ways of enjoying photography.

All communication operations can be completed on a smartphone / tablet with the exception of the initial bluetooth pairing between a camera and the app. Unifying the operations with cameras, smartphones and tablet devices and improving user convenience.

The Image Transfer Order function makes it possible to transfer images in a camera to a smartphone or tablet device not only during the camera's playback mode and when the camera is powered off, but also while taking pictures. This facilitates seamless posting and sharing of images on social media and messaging apps.

The app has been updated with a high-contrast design in black and white as base tones. Text size has been increased to create a user interface with improved visibility.

(2) Wireless connectivity for ease of photo shooting

The XApp allows users to remotely control the GFX / X Series while checking the image of the connected camera's rear LCD monitor on a smartphone or tablet device. It is especially useful in situations that require remote controls, such as a group shot and time lapse. Some shooting settings such as aperture, ISO and shutter speed can also be configured from the smartphone or tablet device.

Using the new Backup/Restore function, users can save camera settings such as shooting menu and setup configurations in the app or send them to the camera. Favorite camera settings for different subject type or shooting situations can be managed in the app and exported to a camera, making it quick and easy to change settings even during shooting. Camera settings can also be reflected to multiple cameras of the same model via the app, thus streamlining multi-camera shooting. Even if camera settings are accidentally changed during camera operation, settings saved in the camera can be applied for instant recovery.

Smartphone's date, time and geolocation information*5 are automatically synched with the connected camera, so that it displays accurate time and records accurate shooting location information.

*5 Users' advance consent is required to synch geolocation information.
