How to evaluate the Fuji X-T4 that was blown up by netizens overnight?
In just over a month, Fuji released a total of 3 X-series mirrorless cameras, namely X-T200 (January 23), X100V (February 5), X-T4 (February 26). This is probably the highest density release of a new camera that S Jun has seen since playing the phone for so long. In fact, Mr. S has already heard a little about it. Since Canon and Nikon have released their flagship SLRs, how can Fuji not come to play? So, on the day that X-T4 was released, that night, everyone was boiling.
What happened that night? Let’s take a look at the general comments of various netizens –
Such a harmonious scene, I haven’t seen it for a long time. For Fuji, a special company, people really didn’t pay attention to full frame. They have a more professional GFX medium format system. What can you do with full frame? Popular science, even the 4433 medium format sensor is already 1.7 times the full frame sensor.
The medium format is larger than the full frame, and the full frame is larger than APS-C. The medium format is better than the full frame on the physical level. It is not difficult for APS-C to “beat” the full frame. Fuji is in this direction, using both to “clip” the full frame.
It’s true that Fuji does not play full frame, but it really does more work on GFX and X than anyone else. So why is the Fuji X-T4 hot this time? I sum it up, it’s probably the word conscience. Where does conscience manifest? Mr. S’s humble opinion cannot do without these three keywords: camera performance, video playability, and lens system.
1. How much is better than X-T3?
After the X-T4 was released, my colleague who bought the X-T3 shortly before came to me and cried. Why are you crying? How long has the X-T3 been favored? Is this taken by X-T4 silently? Let’s first look at a main parameter.
I comforted this buddy and said, “Don’t worry, you see that X-T3 is cheap, and you can buy it early and enjoy it!” But the buddy said, “I only bought it for two months! I lost the five-axis anti-shake of the fuselage I lost 1080P/240P!!! I lost the new film simulation!!! I lost hundreds of millions!”
Hey, buy new electronic products instead of old ones, but you really can’t think of when the “new” will be Come. This time the Fuji X-T4 was released suddenly. For those who just bought the X-T3, it was really a “huge loss”, and even the majority of X-T3 players cried for a few nights— —The huge improvement of X-T4 is more than just a few points mentioned above, focusing performance and system adjustment and optimization have not been counted.
Unexpectedly, after comforting my buddy, the alcoholic friend sent WeChat to ask me how the Fuji X-T4 was. Although this friend of wine and meat has been staring at X-T3 for a long time, he still hasn’t started. The reason is that he is afraid of falling prices. He said he would wait for X-T4. No, I really waited. I said at the time that if a real man likes it, just don’t expect the X-T series to drop in price.
The reason why the X-T4 was blown up was not because of the great kindness of the giant conscience. X-T4 is more than 2,000 yuan more expensive than X-T3, but the guaranteed amount of increase is definitely more than 50%. Don’t say it, just a support for five-axis anti-shake, can provide up to 6.5 shutter compensation, even if it’s just this, I think it’s a great value, let alone 1080P/240P video madman grandma favorite Format selection.
What kind of new battery life, the new film simulation of literary players, higher and stronger continuous shooting speed, a more impressive 0.035 second shutter release delay and 0.02 second auto focus speed are all included for free.
2. X-T4 is more than a combination of X-H1 and X-T3
Fuji X-H1 is launched , Earlier than X-T3. The X-H1 was the first mirrorless camera in the Fuji X series with five-axis anti-shake IBIS body at the time, and the brand-new “X-H” product line series was launched. At that time, it was speculated that the X-T series was no longer capable of 5-axis anti-shake. Unexpectedly, only one and a half years after the X-T3 was released, the X-T4 with five-axis anti-shake on the fuselage turned out to be domineering.
The brand-new IBIS anti-shake unit, do you think that just remove it from the X-H1 and move it over to the XT body to become X-T4? You are wrong. Official data shows that the IBIS anti-shake unit of Fuji X-T4 is developed by brand new technology, including basic components, fine layout of the shutter damping structure and newly developed gyro sensor. The detection accuracy is directly 8 times that of the X-H1. The piece.
Moreover, the new five-axis image stabilization on the X-T4 supports video recording. It uses the principle of magnetic force instead of a physical spring, which is 30% smaller and 20% lighter than the X-H1.
Why do we keep talking about this body with five-axis anti-shake? Because this is really important. Because in many Fujinon lenses, there are 12 models with OIS anti-shake and 17 without OIS. What does this show? Let’s take a look at a table——
This shows that the large-aperture fixed-focus lens in the red area you fancy has a high probability of blurring when shooting at low shutter speeds without the support of five-axis anti-shake. The key point is that the X-T4’s five-axis anti-shake test can be 1 to 1.5 gears higher than X-H1 under the CIPA standard, which is more stable! And when used in a lens with OIS anti-shake, almost a high shutter compensation performance.
On the other hand, we also see that most of the core functions of X-T4 and X-T3 are similar. For example, X-Trans CMOS 4, which is also 26.1 million pixels, is also X-Processor 4. This largely determines that the static camera effects of the two are similar. However, X-T4 has opened up the 1080P/240P 10 times slow motion recording format, which is far stronger than X-T3’s largest 1080P/120P. As for the 4K 60P, which is still the strongest APS-C in the industry, I won’t mention it.
Okay, what exactly can 1080P/240P slow motion do? Just can take these pictures——
The above moving pictures are all Taken with Fuji X-T4.
You may wonder, isn’t 1080P/120P OK? It’s not bad, but the effect is not so good. Please, this is really a trivial question. Isn’t the cheaper X-A7 bad if it’s true? Why X-T4? It’s not that you can’t take pictures…
Brother, I’m a bit pursued, OK, 1080P/240P, may I ask which APS-C next door does it?
3. Q: Is X-T4 worth it?
It’s worth noting that people don’t speak secretly. But I know I have to give two waves of people a reason to be worthwhile.
Let me talk about something first, Fuji is going to release XF50mmF1.0, yes, it is the new ship version 50mmF1.0 that you have never played before! Refresh the upper limit of your knowledge of large aperture.
Someone is going to beep again, it’s more expensive than a full-frame lens, it’s boring! But I want to say that price is one thing, and whether there is or not is another. Want to make 50mmF1.0 in full frame? Yes, there is indeed an approximation. Noct58mmF0.95 is indeed fierce, but after all, a manual lens costs more than 50,000 yuan. After all, it is very huge. Do you have anything else to say? One of the attractions of the Fuji X-series cameras is that, in addition to the retro style, the professionalism and richness of the X-mount Fujinon lens group, its high quality, is that no other company has done it better.

That’s why I said, even if I don’t have a Fuji X series camera, I can start with this almost complete APS-C lens group, professional or amateur users No need to worry about not having a good lens to use after buying a camera.
Back to the topic of whether X-T4 is worthwhile——
If you are an X-T3 user, and the lenses on hand are all built-in OIS, I don’t plan to Buy a large aperture lens without OIS, and do not plan to shoot a slow motion blockbuster, then X-T3 is enough for you to play for 10 years.
If you are interested in buying X-T series cameras, the perfect X-T4 is your best choice. At least for now, taking photos and video double-editing, no matter what purpose you are, it can be your powerful partner. The keyboard man may say again, I don’t shoot videos, I don’t need to buy X-T4. If you want anti-shake, just go to X-H1, which is cheaper. It’s true to say that, but don’t digress. Now I’m discussing whether the X-T4 is worth it. I just want to say that with such comprehensive performance, I think it’s very worthwhile to sell for a price of over 10,000. Whether X-T3 or X-H1, I don’t deny them. After all, without them, there would be no X-T4. I decide which one I want to buy, and I didn’t use a gun to buy it at you, did it?
The eyes of the masses are sharp.
This is a summary that does not need to be summarized. I didn’t buy it, and I won’t buy it, because I still use the previous camera well, but it’s not unusable. So this article is just talking about Fuji X-T4. There are new electronic products every year, and new ones will catch up this year. Shopping wisely is the right way. Both X-T and X-Pro are Fuji X-series flagships, and in terms of performance, X-T seems to be a bit over X-Pro. But don’t forget, the X-Pro3 has just been released, and the X-T4 is here. They are alternately using the identities of the flagship brother. Who would have thought of how X-Pro4 will surpass in a few years? I just hope you don’t forget that the original intention of buying a camera is to create the best images.
