Fujifilm Introduces X-T4 With In-body Image Stabilization And Improved Battery Life: Digital Photogr
We've not yet mentioned the new headline feature of in-body-image-stabilisation (IBIS). Combined with optical stabilisation (OIS) its effectiveness is rated up to 6.5EV (depending on which optically stabilised X-Series lens is in use). This performance is a (claimed) improvement of up to 1EV for photographers over the X-T3 that relies on OIS.
Fujifilm introduces X-T4 with in-body image stabilization and improved battery life: Digital Photogr
For the extra money, the most notable additions are in-body-image-stabilisation, a greatly improved battery life, a quicker and quieter mechanical shutter, enhanced continuous AF and a number of design tweaks that make a surprisingly notable day-to-day impact, such as the still/movie switch.
The Fujifilm X-T4 is the company's latest high-end photo and video APS-C mirrorless camera. It brings in-body stabilization, faster shooting, improved autofocus and a larger battery to the already very capable X-T3.Read the full review
The X-T4 is the new flagship model in the Fujifilm X Series range of mirrorless digital cameras. The Fujifilm X-T4 offers in-body image stabilisation (IBIS), a new fast, durable and quiet shutter unit, a large-capacity battery, a new Film Simulation mode, ETERNA Bleach Bypass, and the fastest ever autofocus performance in an X Series camera.
The X-T4 is the pinnacle of the X Series, delivering the highest performance in both stills and video. A new shutter unit has been developed to be fast, durable and quiet. Thanks to the development of a new algorithm, the X-T4 provides fastest ever autofocus performance in an X Series camera, offering photographers the ability to capture any moment. The X-T4 is also the first model in the X-T Series to feature in-body image stabilisation (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 stabilisation in the video mode, provides unparalleled shooting smoothness, allowing users to immerse themselves in video production. A new Film Simulation mode, ETERNA Bleach Bypass, simulates the traditional film processing technique to create a unique world of low saturation and high contrast.
The Fujifilm X-T4 shares a lot of similarities with previous entries in the X-T line of cameras. Photographers with experience shooting earlier models will feel right at home when picking up the XT4. The addition of in-camera image stabilization, an articulating touchscreen, and a larger battery makes the X-T4 significantly more versatile than the outgoing models as well.
Fujifilm X-T4Chase your creativity as far as it wants to go with Fujifilm X-T4. This powerful image-making tool offers professional photo and video functionality that can be quickly and easily accessed at the flick of a switch. X-T4 offers five-axis In-Body Image Stabilization, autofocus sensitivity down to -6EV, and Full HD/240p super slow-motion video recording. It also provides improved AF tracking performance and enhanced battery life, along with a new mechanical shutter that is capable of making images at 15 frames per second and 300,000 actuations. High-resolution movie footage can be made at DCI 4K/60p in 10-bit color. The X-T4 is the ultimate camera for hybrid image makers who want the versatility to make the most of their creativity.
The X-T4 introduces several key improvements, including in-body image stabilization and a fully articulating monitor, but recycles the same sensor and processor from the X-T3. The older camera is also remaining in the lineup, now for a new low price. Both are excellent cameras, so here is what you need to know about their differences, and why we think the X-T4 is worth the premium price.
Olympus has given the E-M10 IV in-body image stabilisation (IBIS) which enables images to be captured at up to 4.5EV slower shutter speeds than normal. This system also operates in video mode and it can be augmented with digital stabilisation but using it results in a slight crop in the frame.
Beyond that, it's just a blast to shoot with, proving that you don't necessarily need the biggest sensor to take great photos or have fun with photography. It's no slouch in the video department, either. Though it's limited to 4:2:0 subsampling, it can record 10-bit 4k 60 fps video internally, and unlike previous iterations, the X-T4 comes with built-in sensor-shift stabilization to help reduce camera shake. Ultimately, the X-T4's relatively portable design, dedicated exposure dials, and great battery life make it one of the best enthusiast APS-C cameras you can get.
There's a lot to love here, including in-body image stabilization and a vari-angle screen that's great for vlogging. Out-of-camera image quality is also excellent, as usual with Fujifilm. It does have a worse battery life than the more expensive X-T4, and its mechanical burst rate is capped at 7 fps, but given its lower price point, the camera still offers a ton of value. If you want something more portable, the Fujifilm X-T30 II is also well worth considering. It's more compact but uses the same sensor, giving you roughly equivalent image quality, though it doesn't have IBIS or an articulated screen.
