Premium mirrorless Fujifilm X-T4 Camera – Review
Mirrorless camera Fujifilm X-T4 is a excellent choice for landscape photography. It takes crisp, ready-to-use images and doesn’t show much in terms of visual noise or grain even when using high ISO settings in dimly lit environments. Its kit lens also allows for quite a bit of light and doesn’t show much in the way of light drop, so the corners of your image aren’t noticeably darker than the center. Its screen is also clear and readable even in direct sunlight.
Fujifilm X-T4 camera is topnotch for vlogging. Its fully articulated screen allows you to easily monitor what you’re recording while its optical and body stabilization features keep videos very stable, even when you’re on the go. Its autofocus system should also do a fantastic job of tracking and maintaining concentration on your face as you record, whether you’re shooting in 4k or FHD.Fujifilm X-T4 is an excellent choice for studio videos. The video quality is excellent, whether you are recording in 4k or FHD. Its continuous autofocus system easily keeps faces and moving objects on fire. Unfortunately, it lacks a dedicated headphone jack, which requires the use of a clumsy USB-C adapter.
The Fujifilm X-T4 is ideal for sports and wildlife photography. It can shoot at very high continuous speeds and has an effective and reliable autofocus system, which allows you to clearly capture short moments. Its high maximum shutter speed should also help in this regard.Fujifilm X-T4 is good for travel photography. It offers excellent image quality, even in darker environments. Its auto focus and image stabilization functions in the body are reliable, allowing you to quickly take clear photos without the use of a tripod. Its 500-shot battery life should last most of the day, while its metal body feels sturdy enough to take a few drops and bumps, though it looks a bit heavy.
Stills photographers will discover that the X-T4 can shoot significantly faster in addition to adding stabilization. In a like-for-like comparison, the new battery delivers over 50% more battery life than the X-T3 but sacrificing backward compatibility. Additionally, the camera’s autofocus technology is substantially more successful in some ways, even though it doesn’t always adapt well to different subjects.
The video quality is the same, but the inclusion of picture stabilization is revolutionary. It’s a more dramatic presentation of a same story in terms of video. The X-T4 shines because it can create good results without a gimbal. New features like line-level mic input and the corrected Log preview are all nice improvements, as is the dial-operable “movie optimized control” option. The best video camera Fujifilm has ever produced, without a doubt.
The idea of the sub-$2000 full frame mirrorless camera is arguably what most threatens to eclipse the X-T4. Both the Sony a7 III and the Nikon Z6 feature in-body stabilization, have comparably large bodies, and are sufficiently outdated to be sold for close to the X-T4’s price.
If you utilize lenses that are similar or faster, full frame can unquestionably provide higher image quality, which is something that must be disregarded. A distinct size/weight trade-off is provided by APS-C, allowing for smaller, possibly more manageable body/lens combinations without necessarily sacrificing too much in terms of image quality. The Fujifilm more than competes in video. The Fujifilm 10-bit footage will have a similar IQ and be easier to grade if you need to maintain a minimal depth of focus when shooting a scene.
Fujifilm X-T4 camera is not designed for action videos. It is not small enough to be mounted on a head wagon and lacks real support for 120fps and 240fps video recording, which is essential for generating high-quality slow motion footage. That said, it’s robust enough to take small drops and bumps and offers great video recording quality, regardless of whether you’re filming in 4k or FHD.
One of the priciest APS-C cameras on the market, the Fujifilm X-T4 is also perhaps the most powerful. Although every other aspect of it is excellent, its autofocus technology isn’t quite as reliable or well-developed as the best of its competitors. It is fun to shoot with and produces beautiful photographs and excellent video.
Fujifilm X-T4 is a premium APS-C mirrorless camera. It offers remarkable image quality, first-class recording quality and superb image and video stabilization performance. Its autofocus performance for both photography and video is amazing, allowing you to clearly capture fast-moving objects and people without much difficulty. It is also exceptionally well built and offers a wide range of photo and video setup options. Unfortunately, it is quite heavy, which makes it a bit difficult to transport from place to place.Photo:FUJIFILM
