The Fujifilm X-T4 corrects the few flaws of the X-T3 such as the addition of stabilization. The handling is further improved as well as the battery life. Suddenly it becomes slightly larger and heavier than previous versions while maintaining its compact style. A grip is available to further improve autonomy up to 1500 releases.
Focus tracking on the eyes is almost as efficient and precise as on Sony’s hybrids cameras. On the other hand, it does not recognize the eyes of animals.
It also improves burst shooting with 15 frames per second with mechanical shutter.
For the image quality, the X-T4 is one of the best APS-C of the moment. Sensitivity now climbs to ISO 51,200. A new very cinematic looking film emulation filter called Eterna Bleach Bypass has been added, providing a high contrast and desaturated look.
The EVF viewfinder is an OLED offering perfect contrast with 3.69 million dots at 0.75x magnification.
The body is also very robust against bad weather thanks to a professional quality tropicalization.
The Fujifilm X-T4 camera doesn’t disappoint. Unsurprisingly, the quality of the images is still very good and the video component always more advanced. The screen is mounted on a ball joint, the handle is hollow for a better grip, and the sensor now benefits from stabilisation. The eye and face autofocus tracking is at the best level and the photo burst goes up to 20 fps. The Japanese firm has been able to renew its flagship to maintain a good place in the photo market in 2020.
I therefore recommend this very versatile camera which offers a quality image comparable to a full frame and now offering a very wide range of lenses.
