@Thoughts R UsCamera maker unable cut cost because too much proprietary part. Menus are annoying. Super versatile, good OIS ans optic.Did you ever use it? Yeah friend bought one it was so bad I told them to send it backMaybe Fuji got serious QC issues but he tried 2 and wasn't happy. Lastly, when all cameras were set manually to WB, differences were not noticable anymore. Worth the spend? It's just videos that keep pushing my boundaries now! It passed with flying colors, continuing to rattle off shots in the simulated rainstorm. Did you just call me a Troll and I use my real name for 9 years on DPR? Fujifilm’s answer is the X-T4, another big evolution in its flagship X-T series. I guess there just isn't a straight forward way to slice this one up. Yet, it maintains a stylistic and attractive aesthetic, unique to the X series range. We would have preferred to see a mini HDMI or full HDMI port, both of which have proven to be more durable than the tiny micro HDMI interface, especially for use with an external recorder. I think they will. On what camera are you going to put this Nikon’s 55-200 ED-VR? That lens and one or two others don't feel balanced on any other Fuji. I am not saying this is not a reason to get an X-T4, but if ergonomics is one of the main reasons you are upgrading consider the following $46 grip which adds very little weight, feels good and protects a good part of the camera from abrasion and sweaty fingers. If you go outside of Fujis closed ecosystem with their rather expensive lenses, then APSC still can be an option to save weight and cost. This is definitely the most expensive APS-C camera in the market and they don't even give you an external charger. Aiming to save photographers carrying a cable and a charger for every battery they use, this device handles up to four batteries at the same time and can charge at home, in the car and via a USB power bank. It's not the smallest or lightest, but boy is it nice to carry. Another Fujifilm camera, the now-discontinued X-H1, was the most recent premium APS-C model to earn our Editors' Choice recommendation, largely due to its ergonomics, image quality, and in-body stabilization system. I haven't shot my XH-1 in a while but that camera feels good, is rugged, has a wonderful shutter, good IBIS and can be had used for a song. BTW, Mr. Kanarek shoots with Fuji X and GFX equipment, and it's great that he often comments on forums here. In use we found it offers distinct benefits over both the X-T3 and the older X-H1. With post-processing software you can change everything down to the pixel which on a 60 MP camera like the A7RIV is a lot. Yes, it's so funny. Other is perfect. In the end, Fujifilm’s X-T4 builds on the proven successes of its predecessor. For the last five years ending last Wednesday, I owned a boat load of Sony. IBIS makes them more useful. But, just to indicate some photography specific buyers, that it could be a consideration! The Fujifilm X-T4 is the successor to the very popular X-T3, which was released in 2018, principally adding in-body image stabilisation, greatly improved battery life, a quicker and quieter mechanical shutter, enhanced continuous AF and a number of design tweaks. If find the DPR test scene quite hard to interpret at the pixel level because it's not flat, so the depth of the focus point (and hitting it exactly) matters, and so do aperture and lens characteristics like field curvature. It's gone with the standard vari-angle design, with hinges at the left side. Maximum aperture is one of the least important aspect of lenses. So having APS-C would essentially be redundant and unneeded expense. He's trolled people in Canon and Nikon forums as well - making strong claims, but refusing to back it up with evidence and demanding people "do research.". Once a target is acquired, though, the focus system is very good at sticking with it, even when other, similar subjects are in view. I found a used X-H1 with a 23 F2 which I didn't yet have and a bunch of manual focus lenses for under $1k, putting the body at roughly $500, best purchase I've ever made. When paired with a 300MBps Sony Tough memory card, the buffer clears in less than ten seconds. That's why I have an X-H1 for lenses like the 16-55mm f/2.8. Editors' Note: Some images and video in this story were captured with a pre-production camera. No doubt it has some good capabilities, it is 2.5 times more expensive than my Canon M6 Mk2 which is much smaller to carry around. :) and continue the good work on DPReview:). In my opinion your prices are a bit off on the A6600, I can look however I want I can't find this combination at this price. The Main Menus require scrolling and tapping with physical keys to adjust a setting. The sensor's lowest standard sensitivity is ISO 160 and it can be set as high as ISO 12800 in standard mode. If there's a compelling draw toward the Sony side of the fence, it's the promise of an upgrade path to full-frame photography. Since you can have a Z6 for about the same money - I think this kinda blows the value proposition of this camera. I use LR (with an adjusted import profile) and have until now not seen an issue. @Drew: I assume the lens used for XT3 and XT4 is the same? The 24mm F3.5, 35mm F2 and 65mm F2 DG DN share similar designs and have weather-sealed metal bodies. Nice camera, but a no-go at $1699. 'Image quality' is almost impossible to completely pin down: there are countless elements to consider and each person will weight them differently. Is the Fujifilm X-T4 the king of APS-C cameras? IMO only sensor is unique tech of the camera maker. The XT-3 was down to $1,000 but now it seems to be about $1,400 compared to this at $1,600 to 1,700 (body only). Considering full frame gives you at most 2/3 to one stop over APSC, it's not like the difference is huge. The X-T4's image quality is really a known quantity. The 65mm T2 completes Vazen's set of anamorphic lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system. The X-H1 was actually Fujifilm's best camera they ever offered. But it is important to note that for many the smallest is not necessarily the easier to carry and use. It shows that some will complain no matter what. I think Nikon is still lacking in that. Fujifilm has officially announced the X-T4 and to me it looks like a brilliant camera. I agree, if I didn't own the Fuji lens, I'd say go for the Sony. The weird thing about Sony is that they don't have a great 24-70 or 70-200 lens...and those are two of the most important lenses for any system. Meanwhile, in the real world, a few posts down, Benjamin Kanarek, one of the best fashion photographers in the world, who often shoots covers of Vogue Magazine, among others...comments: "Probably one of the most compelling cameras on the market in the last few years. Fuji has implemented most of the major requests made by many within the community. I just haven't bought the gear and I have come close so many times. Enhance details function fixes this, but it takes an extra step, and creates a pretty huge DNG file. Planning to treat yourself to a new full-frame camera this holiday season? If I wasn't already locked into the Sony APS-C line I would take a look at this one. Sometimes a section, say the video page, will be written by someone else, to allow the lead reviewer to concentrate on other aspects of the camera. Fuji would be the best if money was no object, but those lenses are expensive and EF-M and EF mounts are full of inexpensive glass. In AF-C, the wide area becomes a tracking mode. It's a great time to pick and choose. Keep an eye on your inbox! Chris and Jordan take a look at the new Sigma 35mm F2 and 65mm F2. The Fujifilm X-T4 ($1,699.95, body only) is getting a lot of buzz from enthusiast and pro photographers alike, and with good reason: It's the first X-T camera to feature in-body image stabilization (IBIS). @Greg7579"I've been doing that for years on the Fuji X Board."

MIOPS has announced Flex, a new smart camera gadget designed to make it easy and simple to capture lightning strikes, action images, holy grail timelapse videos and much more. Fujifilm says that the X-T4 is a sister model to the X-T3, rather than a replacement, which is borne out by the specs and pricing. It's like holding a razor blade - every edge is sharp and uncomfortable - and it leaves my knuckles a bit raw from the rubbing against the lenses. If I look at the very best prices on Geizhals (regardless of delivery) I find this:A6600 + 16-55mm: 2500€A7 III + 24-105mm: 2650€X-T4 + 16-55mm: 2600€. Of course the A73 doesn't have the Fuji's video specs so you have to move up to one of the larger and more expensive full-frame camera systems to get that. And, this is absolutely the most special thing with Fuji cameras. The X-T4 is a smidge taller and the grip is a little deeper, but its 3.7-by-5.3-by-2.5 inch (HWD) frame is still more compact than you get with a similarly outfitted SLR, like the Nikon D500 (4.5 by 5.8 by 3.2 inches, 1.9 pounds). And this was the sole reason why the X-H1 has never been a succes. Fujifilm's old-school approach to camera design and external exposure control has won it lots of fans and is featured on the Fujifilm X-T4 flagship model, the rangefinder-style X-Pro3 and super-compact X-T30.. Fujifilm also makes more beginner-orientated models with conventional mode dials an exposure controls, namely the Fujifilm X-A7 and X-T200.. If you like the idea of a flexible spot, but want a bigger target to move around, there is a zone option with three levels of size adjustment. If I want IBIS and phase detect eye tracking focusing, the Oly EM 1 Mk3 is perhaps a better option. Also missing is a standard headphone jack—you can use a dongle to connect a 3.5mm pair, or just use USB-C headphones, or add the vertical grip, which includes a headphone jack. To gain feature parity again, you have to shell out $10k for the GFX 100. LR doesn't resolve XT sensors well. If you can't afford this one than get a used xt3.. NEWS VIEW MORE.

I'm confident we'll see the same here... Definitely not a filmer! They decided to skip the FF market completely and they are very successful taking the APS-C + mMF route. Comparing the upper end of one sensor size with the lower end of the next size up, you'll often get similar prices. So I am partial to it. And that is at COMP view setting! All in all the X-T4 feels less durable compared to X-T1 / X-T2 and X-T3. Hahaha, Fuji haters are always funny. Haha, wasn't there this blind test by Tony Northrup that most people preferred the Sony shots when they were mis-labelled as their own brand? The slow focusing (by 2018 onwards standards) on the 56 F1.2 is due to the slow focusing motors used, not the amount of glass. Image quality when shooting JPGs is strong through ISO 3200.

I tried an XT3 and was shocked how awkward and heavy it was to hold. External recording is also an option. Also, the Fuji AF is not bad at all; in fact it's quite good. A higher signal to noise ratio gives you a less noisy representation of the scene, and better definition of the tonal differences that appear in the scene. So it's not like APS-C is expensive. Portrait photographers will also enjoy some freedom working with models, as eye detection coupled with continuous focus gives both photographer and subject freedom of motion. So it make no sense to buy camera bodies within a year of their introduction. The fairy tale would be to claim that one system offers advantages without any trade-offs. @All - I was surprised by how little the addition of IBIS increased its price compared to the X-T3. © 1996-2020 Ziff Davis, LLC.

Fujifilm X-T4 review The Fujifilm X-T4 brings image stabilization, faster shooting and a bigger battery to the X-T series. This year, despite the disruption, plenty of amazing cameras, lenses, accessories and other products came through our doors. Sony might have a slight edge when it comes to subject tracking, but where we are disappointed with the ergonomics in its premium a6600, Fujifilm gets just about everything right with the handling and feel here. You know what, I like them all for different reasons - my A92 is fast and amazing in its own way and I've never cut myself using it. The Fujifilm X-T4 is the company's latest high-end photo and video APS-C mirrorless camera. And also note Capture One now has a free Express version for Fuji. Oh, and it's a lot of fun too. Weight has been a major drive for Sony in FF, but even for Canon with their 6d and now mirrorless. What a fine camera from Fuji! Weight is 607 g, the A7III is at 650, but the A6600 is 503g. The handling and grip are still very lacking compared to almost any other brand. I can find prices at 2400 for the both even today.

Their video specs is "perfected" which made other brands look like their in beta gen, beautiful images, but with the 12-50 2.8 it we are into DSLR territory in weight and that s a spoiler for me and the reason i downsized to m4/3 and a couple of fast primes that are available. sony a.i. In this market section Fuji appears to be the only manufacturer (beside Sony) that is profitable. He knows how to shoot? I wonder if opinion of your colleagues matters? Just like Fujifilm did with their X-H1 owners. No help from Fuji. Its weather sealing is also class leading. We can't help but give the Fujifilm X-T4 a five-star rating. If so what are your impressions? Different brand actually can use same EVF part. @cxsparcBesides comparing weight only, can you put the prices of the whole body plus lenses. It seemed reasonably to assume that most people choosing between these cameras will try to use their entire sensor, not plan on constantly cropping. Now, talking about what that money can buy, you can find a used Sony A7RIII in very good shape for the same price as the Fuji X-T4, and that makes FF very tempting. Thankfully, Fujifilm is offering a very practical dual battery charger as an add-on for around $70. I did do a little customization, adding a hot key to switch between 4K and slow-motion video recording, and moving some things around in the on-screen Q menu. APS sensor. Don't worry. But - I guess what I am getting at is it might be better to compare the x-t4 against something like the D850 - which Nikon also threw the kitchen sink at. Here we certainly have a good camera with great video capabilities, but with the size, weight and price of a full frame camera. The autofocus on the A7Riv is in a different league than the Fufi, but the Fuji is the one that gets used the most. That is the exact reason why I use a Z7 beside the X-T4. The IBIS system works very well, but there are some issues that simply happen with sensor-based stabilization. It lets you change exposure settings without introducing clicks to your soundtrack, and also adds support for shutter speeds that are common to cinematography, like 1/48-second for 24fps recording. yes i felt the same, probably its not take any points down from the camera though. I shoot A7R2 and now A7R3 and I think the handling sucks. What I notice is in the RAW sample gallery the details are a little smeared. On the plus side you can configure your individual tab with all the functions you frequently (or eventually) need. We keep hearing the same thing... yet those options are not really cheap or lightweight unless you consider Fuji is only making X-T4 + 16-55mm f2.8. I don’t have this problem in Capture One. There are lots of excellent professional commercial work, creative work, and great artwork made with mobile phones and small sensor compact cameras. There are 85mm full frame lenses with much more glass to move that still focuses much faster than the Fuji 56. Just what Nikon needs right now! If one is looking for ultimate IQ, FF or MF are better suited, for real world photography, Fujifilm offers just very well balanced gears. I am sure I will have more as I use it. There is no doubt that the Fujifilm X-T4 is the best camera that Fuji has released for its X Series” Can anyone comment on how the Fuji 56mm f1.2 compares on an XT4? The X-T4 adds an in-camera preview LUT, so you can record flat footage, but preview a graded scene on your screen. 2JoeA7R2 - Why don't you list out the thousands of dollars of Sony equipment you sold off - i.e. I own an X-T3 and I scanned this review to see if the menus have been improved. Itt was not listed on Idealo for example for whatever reasons. Gphome E-M1iii has better AF than A7iii and is £400 cheaper. And the beauty is that when we talk about images and communication (real world use), witch should be the most important aspect of photography, content is king! X-T100 screen would have been better. Summary: Fujifilm X-T4 Review. Sorry to said so but the con about fully articulated screen is BS because all the time when any camera doesn't have it is a complain about it, then you should put in accord yes or no, I'm an Olympus shutter and I shut mainly steel's and love it for the over my head shot's and for the very low angle shot's so by not being a video guy my opinion should count. I do chimp with my camera, the review buton was on the right side and I could hit the bittong to see if I got the shot, now I need to bring the camera down, let go of the lens and hit the button on my left side of the camera. i like sony size and ergonomics, and so do most other sony owners... we aren't about to compromise with weak Fuji af, what's the point of shooting blurry oof pics. The Canons are comfortable and fit my hand like a glove. Enjoy! Different tools for different jobs, Though I do think Nikon has lots of work to do with the Z.It is a lovely camera to hold and ergonomics are superb. All development and support will go to all new camera's that then will offer this new sensor and processor and X-T4 users (like me) will be left in the cold. The X-T4 has a bigger battery than the X-T3 and adds stabilization to the image sensor, so it's understandably a little bit bigger, but not by much. Being Fuji, the highly customisable features are packed into a stylish, lightweight body. The a6600 uses the same lens mount and accessories as cameras with sensors twice as big, like the a7 III and high-resolution a7R IV, but Fujifilm's X system is purely APS-C. I loved the dials and knobs but changing modes between photographic subjects (birds vs landscapes) is laborious without custom settings. No internal 4:2:2 10bitNo 264 10bit codecBig crop with slow mo (1.29x)AF video behind competitionMic jack, Still old quad-core ARM processor (which only can shoot 4K around 20 minute). they focused on video quality until they are behind in AF. It buffers too much. It's a class-leading product, and the best smaller-than-full-frame sensor camera you can get. 'What's the best mirrorless camera?' The camera offers 20fps full-resolution Raw capture using the electronic shutter, and up to 30fps in a cropped mode with 16MP resolution, matching the X-T3's burst rate. Is it the x-trans sensor ? For a two system setup, it seems a lot of people skip a size these days, i.e. Sure, the 24-105mm is probably much better and comparable to the Fuji in terms of size and weight as well as price. Stabilized, highly detailed video is one of the X-T4's standout features. I was on a wedding today as guest, the small X-T3 blowed away the pro photographers FF in every way... well. The ISO 51200 setting suffers; you'll want to think about a full-frame sensor camera to net better results at such extreme settings. Fuji is promoting video as differentiator, but whether this pays off we will have to wait and see. Oftentimes I find that the key to any device being easy to hold and carry is more the balance than anything else. There is also a flat profile, F-Log, with lower contrast and saturation, offering leeway to grade manually, or apply a Look Up Table (LUT) for quicker grading. Hi. Some aspects, such as colour, are subjective: you can test for colour accuracy but accurate doesn't mean attractive. The release has a thread, so you can add a soft release button or trigger it with a cable. Oh, I forgot the lenses: a kit lens, 35mm f1.4, 85mm1.4, 100mm 2.8 STF, 24-105 f4, 70-350mm f?, Sigma 16,30,56mm f 1.4s, Profoto airTTL for Sony! If you use HEVC you can also record HDR video, using the HLG format, to a card or external recorder. The reason why Fujifilm colours are being praised by most people is because they have over 80 years of experience in color science. We took a look at the field and selected the Panasonic S1H and GH5 as the best cameras for serious videographers. But as others have noted, we all have different opinions. Ok..... so the Image output is softer/less detailed than both XT3 and A6600 in RAW and JPG (check the hair in center or the feathers at the edge. Sorry to see the company shooting itself in the foot like this. $1900 at release was totally not going to fly for an APS-C camera. Fact is, Fuji is never going to be cutting edge because that is not their thing.They are trying to maintain a more traditional way of taking photos so its to be expected that their AF capabilities are behind everyone else and are less likely to be glorified point and shoot cameras like Sony's offerings. Ample speed for portraits. Review: Does the Canon Rebel T8i DSLR make sense in an increasingly mirrorless world? And at the same price as A7iii, Fuji will remain a tiny niche. I also always consider fully articulated screen is "con" and wish they don't put it on all the models. We've combed through the options and selected our two favorite cameras in this class. @larkhon: the 2470/4 is lighter and labelled a Zeiss, the 24105/4 is as heavy but superior in range and also of good image quality. But I get that way from time to time. There are many small smartphone company like OnePlus, XiaoMi, ... PC/smartphone can sell in low cost because all of the part can common share with other brand. Some wanted IBIS, they made the X-H1. Fujifilm’s X-T4 gains 5-axis in-body image stabilisation Fujifilm’s single-digit X-T series models have long been favourites of serious photographers, thanks to their enviable combination of superb image quality, robust weather-sealed construction and intuitive dial-led handling. It's also about electronics, the pattern of the pixels; Bayer, Cross X or Foveon and the quality of lenses. Seriously, I’m not just saying that, I really think this is just such a fine camera from Fuji. My other Fujis were WiFi only, this one apears to be both. and i am good to go. It is like night and day. Because of this, you'll need to swing the screen to the side to frame shots from a low or high angle. Fuji could throw the kitchen sink at the x-t4 with abandon and not look back - nothing to lose. I used the in-camera mic for a quick test of the feature, but influencers will no doubt want to add an external microphone for better audio quality. I simply can’t stand using them. I haven't had the opportunity to use the X-T4 in heavy precipitation, but had absolutely no hesitation to put the camera under the kitchen faucet for a test. With Fuji you are spending more money while getting heavier and more limited system with worse image quality. The 'One Shot' documentary highlights the incredible amount of preparation and work involved in photographers capturing iconic moments in Olympic history. There are two kit options, one with the XF 18-55mm for $2,099, and another with the weather-protected XF 16-80mm for $2,199. The one you're likely to notice is occasional wobbling or warping, typically after some erratic camera movement—whether it be a stumble, bump, or sudden judder. 35mm + MFT or 4433 MF +APS-C. Granted, the size difference is greatest from APS-C to 35mm and you would stay in the 3x2 aspect ratio, which gives you more usable sensor area (seems like you're a video-first user). All content, design, and layout are Copyright © 1998 - 2020 Digital Photography Review All Rights Reserved. Why should user equiped with Fuji switch to FF, if they're happy? The camera locks on consistently, identifies and tracks moving subjects, and offers face and eye detection. Compare any camera to the M100 first, if its not better than that, why bother. Electric first curtain shutter and Ibis in combination work wonders with adapted 85mm and longer vintage primes (I also use 90mm, 135mm, 200mm). Thank you Richard for clarifying! Even with all these positives, the X-T4 isn't absolutely perfect. And last but not least; the skills of the photographer. The AF will be a bit quicker on the XT4. It holds two batteries, supplementing one in camera, to nearly triple shooting time between charges. I am the opposite of a Troll. The grip also offers a 3.5mm headphone jack, absent from the camera itself. Good question Magnar - Why do people buy Sony APS-C cameras in the first place with their smaller sensor and all the crap you are talking about. I have the 10-24 and 55-200 OIS lenses. The Fujifilm X-T4 is the successor to the very popular X-T3, which was released in 2018, principally adding in-body image stabilisation, greatly improved battery life, a quicker and quieter mechanical shutter, enhanced continuous AF and a number of design tweaks. And only use the larger stuff for occasional projects. All companies and their products have their own strengths and weaknesses; it's a matter of choice as to what one values. My point was exactly that the XT4 (and mostly the XT3 too) is forfeiting all these points and is directly comparable to a FF setup. In addition to USB-C, there are micro HDMI, 2.5mm remote, and 3.5mm microphone ports on the left side. I just got talked out of buying the alphasevenarefour on the MF Board. In my view this is a dangerous move as the image quality isn't there and outside of wealthy Fuji aficionados, the numbers don't add up. Instead, the camera has a dedicated Movie mode, accessible via the Still/Movie switch, nested under the shutter dial. I just haven't done it. I would also Like to say the X-H1 is a part of this illustrious group.The GH5 and A7III are still relevant even now! X mount is too expensive for a crop system (bodies and lenses) I like some of Fuji's thinking but it can't be denied they're killing the appeal overpricing the stuff. The X-T4 delivers image quality much like that of X-T3. But in my tests, I think the output is better than XTransformer and even capture 1- although I’m sure someone proficient with C1 could yield equal results. Like I said at a price (right price) crop is fine. The compression bit-rate varies based on format, but can be set as high as 400Mbps for 4K at up to 30fps, and 200Mbps at higher frame rates. For buttery smooth bokeh an APD version is available (effective F1.7) but that forces the camera into cdaf mode. The Fuji X-T4 uses the same 26.1-megapixel APS-C-sized X-Trans CMOS IV back-side illuminated sensor paired with the same quad-core X Processor 4 image processing chip. The camera has the ability to shoot any video, including regular 4K, with the same crop applied, useful if you're trying to frame up the same shot for both standard speed and slow-motion capture. An extra NP-W235 battery is also $70, so take that into account when budgeting. Some advice please:I have a Panasonic GH2 and want to update to a better camera (mainly for stills). Stick with the standard or digitally assisted mode when you plan on moving the camera, and only turn on its Boost mode for static shots where you want a tripod-like effect. However the faith of the X-T4 will follow that of the X-H1. So that explains the gold and silver meddle. Once again, size may not be as important as talent... 1) When discussing technical image quality, as here on this gear site, sensor size matters.2) When discussing image content, the question is quite different. Me too. Check out these new sample photos from the Canadian Rockies and the beautiful city of Calgary, Alberta. Now I own none. Then A5. You can turn on face detection here, with or without eye detection, and the camera will jump to human subjects. We still want more (of course), including better buffer depth in continuous shooting mode, but that would just be the icing on the cake. I like the IQ but I don’t like using it. Photographer and YouTuber Todd Dominey has shared a video that details the history of Kodak Aerochrome film, a film stock he says has 'an origin story unlike any other.'. Sony puts them in its a6600, a model that competes directly with the X-T4. That's kind of like only offering jpeg and not RAW in stills. Just like the X-T3, the X-T4 features Fujifilm's fourth-generation X-Trans CMOS sensor. But Fuji holds its own with the great XF glass and the whole size/weight/ergo thing, as well as that joy of shooting bit which Fuji seems to thrive on. I do agree that Fuji's smaller lenses are more appealing. But - then we start to get into different price categories. Of course they cost tens of thousands of dollars and are used to film most Hollywood movies. It is because them know must improve otherwise only can eat grass later. We found a lot to like, both in the footage and the way the camera handles. Even real photographers who don’t use Fuji know that Fuji makes great cameras and lenses for professionals. The X-T4 splits the difference between the X-T3 and the older X-H1. Is the Fujifilm X-T4 the king of APS-C cameras? It makes it possible to snap shots at longer exposure times without the aid of a tripod. Times are long gone when FF meant mandatorily DSLR bodies in the 1+ kg range. Fuji cameras and lenses are always overpriced for what they are. Sony is never going to be cutting edge as they have no clue how colours are being perceived. @vegataleb The XT4 is a top of the range aps-c. The important stuff is either one of the top dials or a menu assignment to one of the external controls. All these people writing that Olympus went out of business are obviously of low IQ. This has been discussed for a very long time, and there are people who will not use anything but C1 and other people don't have a problem with LR (and an adjusted import profile). The new camera will be available for special order in early 2021. Coming to you from Dan Watson, this excellent video review takes a look at the Fujifilm X-T4 camera. Learning: is not everything :-)450 Euro cheaper is a lot! One glove does not fit all. And yes while the 24-70/4 isn’t the greatest lens iq wise, the 24-70mm gm is great but also in size, it has very uniform sharpness leves and an unusual good rendering for a standard zoom.Also the FE50 1.8 is regularly 150€ new... but doesn’t worth more in my opinion. The event, which will show off a new 'DN' lens for mirrorless camera systems, is set to take place at 7am ET (4am PT) on December 1. Also, if you change a setting in the Main Menu system to try it and want to go back to undo it or change it, it doesn't go back to where you left off so you click and choose your way back to where you left off..Have a Lumix GX-9.

Also Fujifilm also left out the little plastic clip to attach the strap and the hinge of the LCD screen feels like it can break anytime. We have the answer! If I have a complaint about how the X-T4's autofocus system handles, it's that the engineers have stuck with a physical toggle to change between AF-S, AF-C, and Manual focus modes. The Fujifilm X-T4 is the absolute best APS-C sensor camera you can buy. Here you'll click the rear joystick (it's also a button) and cycle through the various areas of interest, from smallest to largest, using the rear dial. Nikon might not have been able to do this (yes - by their own sword). Sony's new Visual Story app for iOS promises event and wedding photographers a variety of useful tools, designed to simplify their workflow and enhance their business. The Primoplan 75mm F1.9 II is a redesign of the original Primoplan 75mm F1.9 designed in 1936. The X-T4 my not beat the A73 sensor but the rest is just very good, especially colours, design, super lenses and built. I find that Canon and Nikon over the years have really learned to pay attention to the balance of weight of a camera, along with the contours and grip. Exactly APS-C at FF Prices ain't exactly "appealing". Touchscreen/menus have none of the above issues. With the X-T4, Fujifilm has put all of the puzzle pieces together. I agree, if I had like $3000 to spend to pick the best camera + lens for this price, I'd go for A7 III + 24-105mm f4. It also carries over the Silent Movie Control feature introduced in the X-H1. There should be a sensor/film plane marking on the side of the viewfinder. But to do so they'll tend to need larger lenses than the Fujifilm. Shame because it hampers what might be a good camera. The new cell is rated for 600 shots per charge, a 50 percent improvement over the X-T3. There's nothing in the Conclusion about how it handles or how intuitive its menus are; that's kind of a shame, coming from a camera with a traditional layout... For me the menu system has always been a mixed bag. @mared, Just for you: a6000, a6300, a6400, a7R2, a7R3, a7R4, a9 1st time no grip, a9 2nd time with a grip! The pro photographers may have better shots anyway:), I dunno some of their lenses are good, some are over rated. Lot of reasons price/bugs being two most obvious. When it comes to the imaging pipeline, much like the physical design, the X-T4 is very similar to its predecessor. No all smartphone maker has deep pockets. In a word, definitely! I've been using the camera with the XF 16-80mm and find the pair to be a delight—I absolutely recommend it if you're shopping for a standard zoom with the camera. If shooting 2 systems, skipping a size just makes sense. Speaking as a photographer of birds and other wildlife, I love the top dials. I bought the Sigma 56F1.4 for 370 Euro for the A6600, too, so that illustrates it quite well :-). Fujifilm's 3.00 firmware update adds a new Pixel Shift Mult-Shot mode to its GFX 100 camera that works alongside a new Pixel Shift Combiner program to output 400MP Raw images made up from 16 individual still images. But for me the big plus is IBIS. However, the Fujifilm X-T4 features the same 26MP sensor as the X-T3 and the same viewfinder resolution at 3.69m-dots. It says that the lenses that allow larger sensors their light/IQ advantage tend to be bigger and heavier. It's moved about the screen using the rear eight-way joystick, or by tapping the rear screen. I cancelled the order 3 days ago because I almost went crazy and bought an alphasevenarefour. We'll be looking in more depth at the differences in a forthcoming article, but the X-T4 is a better camera in a number of respects. I have an A92, A7R3, D500 & D850. I'd love to see Fujifilm add a smaller tracking acquisition area via firmware. And that is true with many other lenses, the size and weight differences are getting smaller. But again, I don't think the X-T4 at this price is meant to take customers from FF or Sony, but more to milk Fuji users. If you haven't already check out his work. Nikon should take a close look at Fujifilm as 'Kaizen' is the best marketing experience one can give to their customers. There have been a number of tweaks and refinements made to the X-T4's body. Its a pity CaNikon made most of their tele lenses front heavy and unbalanced. I have used the Canon 5D series on trips to Disney World with the 40 pancake and I still feel that is the best and easiest camera/lens combo to carry around. With Washington State being locked down, it's been difficult to be as collaborative as usual, but we do hope to add other perspectives. If you opt for HEVC, you'll enjoy 10-bit quality with 4:2:0 sampling when recording to an SD card. All camera lines have improved dramatically in the last years, especially Fuji. Astia or Provia the most. I would love to have this camera. I relied heavily on Classic Negative, new to the X-T series but seen earlier this year in the X-Pro3 and X100V. When he’s not out with his camera, Jim enjoys watching bad and good television, playing video games (poorly), and reading.

Many also find Fuji to be fun and enjoyable to use...and that makes it the best camera for them, regardless of specs. In comparing the two platforms it is like comparing two totally different cameras even though they are literally the same. The "Compare mode" dropdown for scores seems out-of-date; the only Sony offerings are A-Mount. There are no bad choices, except that you have to pay a lot when the stuff is new. Give the Sony a9II a try, it might be the perfect fit with better IQ, AF, speed, lenses, etc, etc... X-H1 or wait for X-H2. A Sony A7iii + Tamron 28-75 f2.8 is smaller thank a Fuji X-T4 + 16-55 f2.8. Went for a heavily reduce X-H1 instead and love it. Strictly speaking, it's more accurate to say that FF can offer better image quality than APS-C. The IBIS keeps footage steady, and there's an additional digital stabilization effect available to improve things further. Justin, you bring up a good point: there is size/weight and there is balance. If you need more, the touch screen supports custom functions for swipes in any cardinal direction. That's just the point of a X-T4. Recently purchased a 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 lens which is wonderful! Important Notice re: Light Room vs Capture One! The most dramatic drop is X-H1. Just not working for me, Xt3 is a nice enough price for what you get.I think their prices put people off, and they really need to open the mount for third party makers would help no end. Probably one of the most compelling cameras on the market in the last few years. If you click an affiliate link and buy a product or service, we may be paid a fee by that merchant. You'll have access to various playback speeds (up to 60fps) and capture rates (up to 240fps) for varying levels of slowed time. You can look at the Q screen as an extension of the physical controls. Do we have zoom lenses the size of a Fuji 18-55mm? We're glad you asked. Beyond that, if you like camera JPGs the X-T1 still had that awful waxy skin-tone issue. It omits proxy recording, so you can't create low-quality clips, useful to reduce stress on CPUs when editing footage. Fujifilm has announced a special version of its 100MP GFX 100 for infrared imaging. It's easy enough to point the lens in your direction, turn on Face Detection focus, and record walk-and-talk videos. What do you mean with: “ full Raw data for all three shots appears to be retained.” My xt4 in only raw shows 1 raw file, are you suggesting that this raw file is a combined stack with alignment and fully ready to be manipulated. 35mm systems give you the option to trade up at high cost, APS-C systems give you the option to trade down and save - we already knew that. Slow motion does introduce a crop, about 1.29x. I just couldn’t take it anymore! at larkhon: I stumbled upon an offer from Foto-Koch for this price. The Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN is for the photographer who wants a focal length that falls squarely between 50mm and 85mm. “Ergonomically ... most refined experiences. Announced in February 2020, it comes roughly a year and a half after the X-T3 and rather than replace that model, the X-T3 … IQ-wise, that sensor is very close to the sensor of the XT-3 and 4. Also, while there are lightweight options for FF there has to be compromises like the range on the Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 if we want zooms. I've looked at Pentax APS-C vs Fuji, so maybe this helps you.Pentax pros: mature IBIS with pixel shift, astro tracer, vibrational AA filter; small prime lens options; mature weather sealing across rangePentax cons: DSLR with lens microadjustment hassles, no live view EVF, large bodies, uncompetitive AF, aging and seldom-updated lens system, long wait between body updates, firmware feature updates very rareIf you're a one body-many prime lenses person, Pentax might be a more portable option with the tiny star primes. It's for people only, though—Fujifilm hasn't added support for pet eye detection, one area where Sony has an edge. Many do in fact find Sony cameras to be difficult to use, and more importantly, not fun at all. And to honest I find Nikon not progressing fast in enough in firmware updates and improvements to give the Z a better 'image'. I agree with all of that. If you stopped reading after that, it only illustrates your brand-mindedness.To spell it out for you: With the XT4&1655 being as HEAVY and LARGE and EXPENSIVE as a FF with a longer range zoom, why go for the APSC camera? I can't read that anything of this has been seriously factored in here in the assessment.Same on the tracking/AF performance. Nikon might have acted to protect higher end bodies like the D850 or the D5 or the D780 (yes - I know, MILC and DSLR - but still - overlapping markets). To determine whether one camera of any kind is better than another would require the editors to be transparent about the numbers behind key aspects of performance like system resolution, autofocus performance, noise, metering accuracy, color delta, and white balance accuracy.So we are left with a site that has become a battlefield with outraged combatants lobbing impossible-to-prove claims at each other.Until the data ban is lifted the victims will continue to be photographers seeking unbiased information.
