The compact & lightweight Fulifilm X-T4 is the upgrade to the acclaimed X-T3 and is the flagship model of Fuji's X-T-series range of mirrorless cameras, delivering pro performance in both stills & video. The X-T4 is the first model in the X-T series to feature in-body image stabilisation (IBIS), which is perfect for handheld shooting. 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. Also featured is a a new Film Simulation mode, ETERNA Bleach Bypass, which simulates the traditional film processing technique to create a unique world of low saturation and high contrast.
At the heart of the X-T4 is the back-illuminated 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and a high-speed image X-Processor 4 which powers the super-fast autofocus with continuous shooting performance of 15fps in post view and 8fps in live view using the mechanical shutter. The electronic shutter enables blackout-free burst shooting of 30fps. The X-T4 is capable of recording Full HD high-speed video at 240P, producing up to 10x slow-motion effect. IBIS is effective when combined with the electronic image stabilization function (DIS) for use in the video mode, and brings even more image stabilisation,
which is essential for users shooting video while moving.
A new NP-W235 battery is included which 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).
In-body image stabilisation
IBIS provides 5-axis 6.5 stop image stabilisation when used with 18 out of 29 XF / XC lenses. It offers many new components, including new materials to the base part, a 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. This particular mechanism assists night photography and sports photography, 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 stabilisation mechanism.
Thanks to newly developed high-torque coreless DC motor, the ultra-fast focal plane shutter has the capability to shoot up to world’s fastest 15fps (as of Feb 26, 2020) 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 and offers shutter noise approx. 30% quieter compared to the X-T3.
26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor
The X-T4 uses the back-illuminated 26.1MP X-TransTM CMOS 4 sensor and a high-speed image processing engine, the X-Processor 4. Combined with FUJIFILM’s colour reproduction technology, the X-T4 delivers a wide variety of options so you can recreate a scene exactly as you remember it.
Professional video functions
Video can be recorded to an external device via HDMI at 4K/60P 4:2:2 10 bit or internally at 4K/60P 4:2:0 10bit. Like the X-T3, the X-T4 supports H.264/MPEG-4 AVC as well as H.265/HEVC, which offers a higher rate of compression, when recording 4K/60P 4:2:0 10 bit video at a bit rate of 200Mbps. However, you can now choose MP4 in addition to the standard MOV video file format, broadening where you can use the files.
Video settings can be changed using the touchscreen panel or the front/rear command dials during video recording. When changing settings like this, the values on the shutter speed dial, ISO dial and aperture ring are ignored, and the camera will keep the exposure settings when switching back from still shooting to video shooting.
New Movie Mode
The X-T4 allows seamless transition between shooting stills and movies. The STILL / MOVIE lever on the top panel and video-specific menu, facilitate fuss-free switching between photo and video recording. The addition of the video-only Quick Menu (Q Menu) button has enhanced the camera’s functionality while recording video as well.
Unique colour reproduction technology
The X-T4 features “ETERNA Bleach Bypass,” a new Film Simulation mode, that uses FUJIFILM’s unique technology to provide versatile colour tones. The new mode simulates “bleach bypass,” which is 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, and White Balance now has “White Priority” and “Ambience Priority” options in addition to “AUTO.” The “White Priority” mode reproduces a stronger white, while the “Ambience Priority” produces a warmer tone.
When “RAW” is selected, users now choose the non-reversible “Compressed” option in addition to the reversible “Lossless Compressed.”
Vari-angle monitor & EVF
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 users to see the subject clearly in low light, Resolution Priority - displaying even the fine details of your subject and Frame Rate Priority which minimises blur in the viewfinder when shooting a moving subject. The eyecup now has a locking mechanism to prevent tearing or dislodgement. The Boost / Normal modes are now joined by the Economy mode, which saves the power to increase the battery life.
A new algorithm and phase detection AF’s processing capability has led to autofocus performance as fast as 0.02 seconds. This ensures that users can capture and track a subject moving at high speed, especially when combined with the continuous shooting performance of 15fps in post view and 8fps in live view. Tracking AF performance has also undergone serious enhancement. The tracking success rate has been doubled compared to the X-T3. The Face / Eye AF performance has also been dramatically improved. This enhanced tracking ability has made focusing and taking portraits even easier than ever before.
