Cool effects with Fujifilm X10 firmware 2.0 update

Toy camera - creates shaded borders as taken by toycameras:

Get full instructions on how to upgrade your Fuji X10 camera's firmware here. It's really easy. Basically, you just download the .dat file and place in on a formatted SD card. Then you turn on the camera while you are holding the back-button.

Have fun!
