Fujifilm GFX Firmware Bug Found And Suggested Work Around

Fujifilm pulled its most recent firmware updates for the Fujifilm GFX100S and GFX 50SII due to an issue with exposure compensation after the update.

May 25, 2023
We have confirmed a problem with the exposure compensation function not working properly.
Therefore, we have removed the download button for this version.
We will release fixed firmware on May 31.

A reader in our Fujifilm GFX Owners group has come up with a workaround for the bug if you already updated and need to use exposure compensation

I found a solution or “work-around” to Firmware (Fe) 2.0 disabling the Exposure Compensation button on my GFX100s. The solution “is in the menu”, as some repeatedly say.
Go to the menu, and instead of choosing “+/- when pressing” (which was the default setting from the factory set-up), now choose “ +/- on/off switch”.
With this option, you will press on your camera the +/- Exp Comp button, then turn the back wheel to make a change, and then press the +/- Exp Comp button to deactivate the back wheel from altering the ExpComp. If you don’t deactivate it, turning the back wheel will not alter your shutter speed.
Here are 2 images that help.
