The latest firmware Ver. 2.0.0 was released on the electronic adapter SHOTEN (EF-FG 01) which can be used with Canon EF mount lens, medium size Mirrorless camera of FUJIFILM G mount standard. (* Firmware compatible with Windows 8 and Windows 10. Otherwise, it does not correspond.)

  3. Video shooting (Further optimisation needed for certain lenses)
  4. Support correct lens model number written into EXIF

Initialization of Techart EF-GFX adapter 

The firmware v2.0 requires initialization at first connection. The camera has to save the parameters of your lens in the first connection. The lens will run a full focusing from closest to infinity automatically after connected. (it normally takes less than 5 seconds).  Please do not disturb or press any buttons during this initialization process. Once the camera has saved the parameters of the lens in the first connection, no further initialization is needed for the same lens. This initialization will repeat itself when a different lens is mounted onto the adapter.

  3. Left-click the EF-GF01 Adapter firmware
  4. Click the ‘Update’ button
