Fujifilm Releases New X-T30 Camera Firmware Update to Help Reduce Accidental Q Button Presses


Fujifilm has announced the release of a new firmware update for its X-T30 Mirrorless Camera, offering a tweak to help prevent accidental use of the device's Q (quick menu) button. As noted in our Hands-On First Look Review of the camera HERE, the Q button's thumb-rest placement makes it particularly prone to pesky unintentional presses.

Thankfully, the camera's new Ver.1.01 update has tweaked the Q Button's operation, increasing the reaction time between pressing the button and actually opening the quick menu -- which should help to minimize accidental use. Likewise, an additional update is also planned for a June release to further address the issue, allowing customers to use the Q button as a Fn button, disable the Q button, or assign the Q button's functions to a different Fn button.
