Fujifilm is out with another grand mirrorless camera from its phenomenal X-Series. Dubbed as the pinnacle of the X-Series, and while delivering the highest performance in both stills and video, which includes a new shutter unit providing fast, durable and quiet camera design topping all your summer indoor or outdoor shoots.
Combining Fujifilm’s fastest ever autofocus performance in an X Series camera, thanks to the development of a new algorithm, the XT-4 allows you to capture the decisive moment that you may have missed before. It is the first model in the X-T Series to feature an in-body image stabilization (IBIS), dramatically boosting the potential of the camera for stills and video shooting.
The standalone video mode, which is now activated with a simple switch, and the use of digital image stabilization in the video mode, provides unparalleled shooting smoothness, allowing users to immerse themselves in video production.
Another fantastic feature is film simulation mode, ETERNA Bleach Bypass, which works wonders simulating the traditional film processing technique, basically creating a unique world of low saturation and high contrast for the best imaging output – for indoor and outdoor shoots.
The X-T4 is an amazing imaging tool, packing with IBIS, new shutter unit and a large-capacity battery all housed into a compact and lightweight body, which is the core philosophy of all X Series. There are photographic moments that only the X-T4, the ultimate mirrorless camera, can help you capture and record.
Fujifilm X-T4: Key technical features
A.) All Powerful Features
1.) The X-T4 is the first model in the X-T Series to feature an in-body image stabilization (IBIS). It provides 5-axis 6.5 stop image stabilization when used with 18 out of 29 XF / XC lenses, thanks to the use of new materials for the base part, refined layout of the shutter’s shock-absorbing structure and newly developed gyro sensors that boast approx. 8 times the detection accuracy of the IBIS unit in the X-H1. The unit assists night photography or action photography such as sports, and also helps video recording in situations prone to camera shake. The new IBIS unit uses magnetic force rather than springs, which boosts functionality while making it approx. 30% smaller and 20% lighter than X-H1’s image stabilization unit.
2.) The X-T4 is equipped with an ultra-fast focal plane shutter. Thanks to newly developed high-torque coreless DC motor, the shutter has the capability to shoot up to world’s fastest*1 15fps in burst mode, and has advanced response performance with a shutter release lag of just 0.035 seconds. The shutter unit also boasts double the durability with 300,000 actuations*2 and shutter noise approx. 30% quieter compared to the X-T3. The NP-W235 battery has a large capacity that is approx. 1.5 times that of an NP-W126S battery. It lasts for approx. 500 frames per charge in the Normal mode, approx. 600 frames per charge in the Economy mode and up to approx. 1,700 frames when two additional batteries are used with the optional battery grip “VG-XT4″*3.
3.) The X-T4 uses the back-illuminated 26.1MP “X-TransTM CMOS 4”*4 sensor and a high-speed image processing engine “X-Processor 4.” Combined with FUJIFILM’s color reproduction technology, nurtured over 85 years of R&D for photographic films, the X-T4 delivers a wide variety of options so you can recreate a scene exactly as you remember it.
B.) Unique color reproduction technology
1.) The X-T4 features “ETERNA Bleach Bypass,” a new Film Simulation mode, that uses FUJIFILM’s unique technology to provide versatile color tones. The new mode simulates “bleach bypass,” a traditional processing technique for silver halide films, creating images with low saturation and high contrast for a special atmosphere. Highlight and shadow tones from -2 to +4 can now be adjusted by 1/2 stops, instead of 1 stop, allowing for finer tonality. Fujifilm’s X-T4’s Auto White Balance (AWB) features a “White Priority” and “Ambience Priority” options in addition to “AUTO.” The “White Priority” mode reproduces white better, while the “Ambience Priority” produces a warmer tone. When “RAW” is selected, you can now choose the non-reversible “Compressed” option in addition to the reversible “Lossless Compressed”.
C.) Capture everything
The X-T4 offers a world’s fastest*1 15fps continuous shooting in post view and an 8fps continuous shooting in live view using the mechanical shutter and the electronic shutter enables blackout-free burst shooting of 30fps. The eyecup now has a locking mechanism to prevent tearing or dislodgement. The 1.62 mil dots vari-angle monitor allows for more creative and versatile shooting styles. The LCD/EVF can be boosted in three different ways, Low Light Priority – allowing you to see the subject clearly in low light, Resolution Priority – displaying even the fine details of your subj
