    I did not see it here, so am posting as a service:

    Revised manual with all details:

    I have not read all the detail, but someone seems to have been listening! kl

    Kit

    Thanks but this has been out for a while. It *is* a major improvement.

    Still loving my X100.

    Thanks Kit, and yes it was a major update... Mine was already at rev 1.1 when I bought it a few weeks ago.

    We're eagerly awaiting the next update - to add the final polish to an otherwise awesome camera.

    Cheers

    Oh dear; behind the pace!

    I got direct notified thins morning, and had a quick look here and did not see a reference to it. Jack/Guy, delete the original if you wish; I don't think I can do that myself. Cheers, KL

    Hmm

    and what if you have Mac OSX 10.7?
    the update is an old defunct 10.6 app.

    Phil; that's very interesting. When I get back home, I am seriously thinking that I will have to buy a recently current laptop and load up Snow Leopard on it—Lion has some nice features, but many problems, too. I am in Arizona at the moment, and Apple's main business tool, Mail, simply can't find its own SMTP server most of the time—and sometimes can, with all settings staying the same.

    You just need to copy the firmware file to the root of an SD card. The Fuji Apple update program is unnecessarily complicated - you only need to do the same as for any other camera firmware update: unzip the download and copy the .bin to your SD card root and then follow the rest of the instructions.

    Thanks Lee,

    It's that easy! Why on earth did Fuji make an app to do something so simple?

    I don't want to go off thread, but Lion is fine for me, no issues at all. This was the first problem I'd had.

    Thanks,
    Phil.

    I'm at a loss to explain. And I lost 45 minutes of my life trying to do it the hard way. And failed.

    Lee, you save/made my day I'm on 10.7 and downloaded and started to RTFM and it didn't work.

    Now I just copied firmware file from iMac to SD, inserted SD in camera, updated and it's done. So simple. How people at Fuji can wrote 3 pages long FM and create useless soft for Mac/PC for updating
