S1000 fd Follow on from old forum-Firmware update

As a follow up to my threads in the old forum, My S1000fd is now out of warranty and Fuji still not apparently accepting there is a fault on the AUTO settings, with me getting random totally black pictures, and lots of very dark ones.

After putting a photoblog up, which I had complaints about!! someone said they'd tried to buy one and told by Fuji that there was a firmware problem with it. So I went and looked for this firmware and found some updates, well it took a couple of hours to figure out how to do it, but I did it in the end and updated the firmware.  Spent the afternoon, although grey and wet, taking lots and lots of pics round my mothers garden. SUCCESS, not a dark one amongst them. trouble is this usually occurred on bright and sunny days !   HOWEVER

now, I'm getting a red crosshatch and !AF showing on almost every other picture. I know it is grey and wet, but, why isn't the Autofocus working properly now?? I can't remember ever getting this message before. Was it cus it was a very grey day and not a lot of natural light OR

Is this the firmware version that they are putting in the new cameras that is causing the problem the other forum user mentioned ???

Would be interested to see if anyone else with the S1000fd has had similar problems or if any of you experienced camera users can tell me why I am getting the !AF message. Is it something I'm doing wrong??  I tried it also on SP1 and SP2 settings and still most of the pix were out of focus.  Any ideas you excellent lot out here??

Was registered on old site as 2cockatoo if anyone remembers me moaning about this camera previously.

Thanks in anticipation of some good advice

Bought the same camera in April, still figuring out the camera and its capabilities but so far haven't had any problems with it. Mostly used the auto setting on it. Wouldn't know how or why to change the resolution settings on it either?! Sorry no help here.

I've had 15 Fuji cameras to date, wouldn't buy anything else. this is the only one I've ever had problems with. I'm not a photographer, just wanted something with a big zoom that I could use automatically and with a proper viewfinder, and this fit the bill in every way. But I've lost all faith in getting a good shot with this darkness issue. I just wish Fuji would recognise it as a fault, perhaps it is a firmware problem, no idea

But as said, now the Autofocus seems to be playing up since updating the firmware. Fuji if you're reading these, would be grateful for some advice.

A continuación le adjunto un enlace Web desde donde podrá descargar el Firmware para la cámara Finepix S1000fd, también le informo que solo existe una versión de Firmware y que esta es válida para todos los idiomas en los que está disponible la cámara.




-Una vez descargado el archivo de firmware “FPUPDATE.DAT” deberá copiarlo en una tarjeta XD o SD válida para esta cámara, para ello puede utilizar un lector de tarjetas o sino dispone de uno, entonces puede transferir el archivo por medio de la misma cámara utilizando un programa ubicado en la misma dirección Web, “FPupdate.exe”, basta con copiarlo en la misma carpeta del ordenador que el archivo de firmware (FPupdate.dat) y al ejecutarlo, automáticamente se encargará de transferir el archivo “FPupdate.dat” a la tarjeta colocada en la cámara, (en este último paso la cámara debe estar conectada al ordenador).


-Cuando tenga el archivo copiado en la tarjeta, deberá introducirla en la cámara y simplemente tendrá que encender la cámara manteniendo la tecla “BACK” pulsada durante el proceso de encendido.


-Aparecerá en la pantalla una explicación sobre la versión de firmware que tiene la cámara en este momento y si continuamos le dirá la nueva versión que hay copiada en la tarjeta, después de aceptar 2 o 3 pantallas explicativas aparecerá una barra de progreso que le indicará el proceso de actualización. Una vez finalizada esta barra de progreso aparecerá un mensaje que le indicará que la cámara ha sido actualizada y ya puede apagarla.

(en este proceso, es recomendable tener la pilas bien cargadas ya que si la cámara se apagara durante la actualización podría resultar averiada).


-Una vez finalizado el proceso y encendida la cámara, esta ya estará actualizada y podrá utilizarla con normalidad. (El archivo copiado en la tarjeta ya puede eliminarse).


Quedamos a su disposición para cualquier duda o aclaración al respecto.

Edit respond responding to the comments submitted by piqueras1939 date Mon, 05/10/2009-19: 47 comment below attached you a Web from which you can download the firmware camera FinePix S1000fd, also link I would point out you that there is only a firmware version and this applies to all languages in which the camera is available.


-Once downloaded the "FPUPDATE.DAT" firmware file you must copy it to a XD card or valid SD for this camera, so you can use a card reader or but have one, then you can transfer the same camera file by using a program located in the same Web address, "FPupdate.exe", just copy it to the same folder on the computer as the firmware (FPupdate.dat) file and run it automatically will transfer the "FPupdate.dat" to the card inside the camera (in this last step camera must be connected to the computer).

-When the file copying in the card, you must enter it in the camera and simply turn on the camera by holding down the "BACK" key during power.

-Appears on the screen an explanation on the camera has currently firmware version and if we continue will tell you the new version we copied on the card to accept 2 or 3 explanatory screens appears a tells you how to update progress bar. Completed this progress bar displays a message that indicates the camera has been updated and you can already shut down it.
(in this process, you should have well charged batteries since if the camera shutdown during upgrade might be faulty).

-Once the process is completed and turned on the camera, this is already updated and you can use it normally. (The copied file card already be deleted).

We remain at your disposal for any questions or clarification.
Kind regards
