FUJIFILM X-T3 file size limit now extends beyond 4GB

Fujifilm’s released a new firmware update that increases the FUJIFILM X-T3 file size limit. This update lets the camera to record files larger than 4 gigbytes.

The days of having to chop up 4GB video files on the X-T3 are gone. For many, it’s a long overdue update. Cameras being able to shoot clips larger than 4GB without splitting them up is about a decade old feature. But for Fujifilm, it’s better late than never.

“Movie files are no longer split when the file reaches 4GB file size. The file is recorded as one file providing an SD memory card greater than 32GB is used (excludes 32GB). By using SD memory cards less than or equal to 32GB, movie recording will continue without interruption when the file size reaches 4GB, however, subsequent footage will be recorded to a separate file,” according to the firmware update 2.1 log.

Also worth nothing, the update will only apply to SDXC cards. So for SD and SDHC cards, the X-T3 file size limit will still apply.


The X-T3’s most recent update was back in December 2018. That was the firmware 2.0 update. Originally, FUJIFILM planned to include the X-T3 file size limit increase in that update. They later announced it would be released in a separate update.

Regardless, the firmware update is free and available now. If you are looking to download it, you can go to fujifilm.com.
