7533

Fujifilm has been aggressive since the opening of the new decade with the third camera body launched thus far, including Fujifilm X-T4 with a host of advanced features.

Fujifilm X-T4

The Fujifilm X-T4 is a 26.1MP mirrorless APS-C system camera that sits on the X series in the Fujifilm camera family. It is known for its compact and lightweight body and superior image quality based on the company’s proprietary colour reproduction technology. Let’s take a quick rundown of what’s the new Fujifilm X-T4 has to offer:-

  • 26.1MP back-illuminated sensor X-Trans CMOS 4
  • 15 FPS burst shooting
  • 0.02 seconds fast AF
  • Five-axis IBIS for 6.5-stop advantage
  • 4K/60p 10 bit video with digital IS
  • Unique colour reproduction
  • New battery developed

Blazing fast
Here we are referring to its burst shooting and its autofocus. The X-T4 uses a newly-developed focal-plane mechanical shutter. It is driven by a high-performance motor to achieve 15FPS burst shooting while also keeping its shutter release time lag to just 0.035 seconds. The shutter is also twice as durable as the previous model and also makes less noise. The user could opt for 30FPS by using the electronic shutter. Auto-focus speed is one of the fastest in its class, as fast as 0.02 seconds, with an improved algorithm, tracking AF on a moving subject has much better accuracy. The Face and Eye AF performance have also been enhanced to make portraiture photography easier.

Stable
This is the first X-T camera range to equipped with the in-body image stabilization (IBIS) unit. The five-axis IBIS offers up to 6.5-stop advantage by using gyro sensors that can detect camera shakes at accuracy 8 times greater, and a shock-absorbing structure that can effectively control minor shakes when the shutter button is pressed. Hand-held photography with superzoom lens while shooting sports or in low light conditions such as night photography will be a breeze now.

Improved Battery
The newly-developed high capacity battery – NP-W235 lasts for 500 frames per charge in the Normal mode, 600 frames per charge in the Economy mode and up to 1700 frames per charge if it is combined with the vertical battery grip VG-XT4 (optional), which can hold two NP-W235 batteries.

Video
The X-T4 can record video at 4K/60P 4:2:0 10bit on an SD card in the camera. There is also an option to output the video to external storage media via the HDMI port to achieve the 4K/60P 4:2:2 10bit with more colour data. The additional feature of the camera’s digital image stabilization (DIS) function (apart from its IBIS) compensates minor camera shakes making it highly useful when shooting video hand-held. For slo-mo shooter, the X-T4 can shoot up to 240P at Full HD resolution.

Colour Science
The X-T4 was built with the back-illuminated 26.1MP sensor X-Trans CMOS 4 and a high-speed image processing engine X-Processor 4. Combined with Fujifilm’s legendary colour reproduction technology, these latest devices deliver “memory colours,” such as vivid colours as one remembers them. The X-T4 features ETERNA Bleach Bypass mode, a new addition to the Film Simulation function, which provides versatile colour tones. The new model simulates “bleach bypass,” a traditional processing technique for developing photographic films, creating images in an impressive atmosphere with low saturation and high contrast.

Likely to be available this April 2020, price is not available at writing time. You could contact Fujifilm Malaysia for more information.
