Fujifilm Patent Shows New Camera Interface

Fujifilm improves their cameras more than anyone else via frequent firmware updates, but the latest patients found by dclife are very interesting ones because they are likely coming soon. Fujifilm film simulations are some of the best on the market, but it is often difficult to see how simulation might affect a photo.

Now it looks like Fujifilm will add an adjustable split-screen view to their RAW editor to help photographers pick the simulation that is best for them instead of processing the photo multiple times to compare later by flipping back and forth through your images. This kind of feature is overdue with how many simulations Fujifilm now provides users, but I think it would be even more interesting if you could use this feature before taking a photo for the ultimate purist. I think this tool could be useful in LiveView, but the patent doesn’t seem to hint at that functionality.

It would be great to see this feature come via a firmware update for the Fujifilm X-T4 in the future, but it is more likely for a larger screen camera like a Fujifilm X-A8/X-A9 since the Fujifilm X-A7 has a pretty large screen on it already at 3.5″ instead of 3.0″ or 3.2″. This could also be used on a new unknown camera like the Fujifilm X-H2 if they put a larger screen on the large body Fujifilm camera line.

Update: Turns out this is already on the X-T200 so it would be nice to see on future large screen cameras because this is useful to more than entry-level photographers.
