Will Fuji ever add Color Chrome Effect, and Clarity to the X-Pro2?

Hi there,

This is topic is mostly triggered by the curiosity to hear what other customers who have a better understanding of Fujifilm's firmware update throughout the years may think about this.
I know it's purely a conjecture, just for the sake of discussion as this will have zero impact on Fujifilm's actions :)

I'm becoming a fan of the SOOC approach, and like many others, I'm now going through the nice Film Recipes on FujiXWeekly.

In particular, I've seen some nice solutions for the X-Trans IV https://fujixweekly.com/fujifilm-x-trans-iv-recipes/

I understand the X-Pro2 relies on the previous generation, the X-Trans III. Still, I'd like to hear your thoughts whether having some of those options, like Color Chrome effect, and Clarity, could add something to the X-Pro2 as well even with the X-Trans III, and if so, I'm wondering if you think Fujifilm is now done updating the X-Pro2 firmware or if there might still be a chance to get those extra, nice features.

It has nothing to do with the X-Trans III sensor, but everything with the X-Processor Pro processor. That processor isn't capable of handling these newer additional features. So, I it's unlikely that these features will come to the X-Pro2. Moreover, Fuji took a bit of a different approach towards firmware updates for older cameras. In a way that will better separate the features between older and newer cameras. The 24MP cameras are now in a kind of 'low maintenance mode' so only the most pressing bugs will be fixed and the cameras will be kept up to date to accommodate new lenses and other accessories like strobes. But don't expect new features.

    • I've tried a number of lens hoods, but they all have the disadvantage of not being able to fit the lens cap when not in use. This one is specifically designed to take the standard lens cap and even has a soft rubber ring to ensure a snug fit. Very nicely made in anodised aluminium. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252370651839?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 (not connected to seller)
    • Firmware 2.10. Newly formatted sd card. And yes, I've taken a few shots. Menu Set up - Save Data Set-Up - Select Folder - "Create New Folder" is grayed out. So I cannot create a new folder. I'd like to create folders so I can store images by date. Any thoughts on how I can fix this?
    • If I put my X-S10 on a table (or any other stable surface), focus on subject and set an exposure the will require more than 1 second of exposure (doesn't matter how many, just make sure that the desired exposure will be more than 1 second), set a timer for 2 seconds and take a shot and the IBIS is set to mode 2 (Shooting only), the shot comes out completely blurry, just like if I hand held the camera (which I didn't). I repeat the EXACT same steps but this time I set IBIS to mode 1 (Continuous) - shot is tack sharp. Why? I know that IBIS should be disabled if the camera is on a tripod or any other stable surface, my question is why this happens only in mode 2 and not in mode 1 as well?
    • Ah a flick of the 'Auto' lever has fixed it! Why do they have to make things so obscure! If it said in the manual 'ES not available in Auto mode' that would have made life so much easier! Anyway, thanks for your help @Greybeard!
