The Fujifilm X-T4 is a mirrorless camera with a split personality – on the outside it's all retro dials and analogue chic, but inside it's packed with more advanced features than we've seen from any Fujifilm X-T camera so far.
The X-T4 fills the last gaps left by its predecessor, the X-T3, and is now one of the most wanted cameras on the market. Fujifilm added IBIS and a flippy screen but the mechanism is arguably inferior for those who like to quickly shoot from the hip. A more discreet shutter and improved autofocus, now that's great. Yes, it’s the same image sensor (and processor) as the X-T3, but if it fits your photography style, the X-T4 is a leap over its predecessor. So should you upgrade?
The X-T4 retains the X-T3’s excellent video recording capabilities, able to capture 4K clips at up to 60fps with a maximum bitrate of 400Mbps. You can record 10-bit F-Log straight to the SD card. There’s also now a 240fps super slo-mo mode (in 1080p), joining the 120fps frame rate that’s available on the T-3.
Here’s a nice touch: movie mode gets its own placement on one of the X-T4’s dials, and the camera separates your settings (and Q button preferences) for stills and video. You can switch between the two without having to mess with menus each time. Now that's a killer feature!
The Fujifilm X-T4 is the natural evolution of the X-T series, but it’s evolved into a space that's more hotly contested than a jalapeño eating contest.
But really, when it starts to shine is when you put it in the hand of an artist.
