Fujifilm X Series: X-T4 is launched worldwide
April 26, 2020
New model is part of the X Series line and features a mirrorless camera capable of satisfying the creative desire of all professionals
A world leader in image and information, Fujifilm Corporation announces the launch of the X-T4, the latest model in the X Series mirrorless digital camera line. Expected to arrive in Brazil in mid-April, the X-T4 will be launched worldwide on the 26th of February.
The equipment is the culmination of the X Series line, and offers the highest performance for large video productions and for photography as well. The X-T4 is the first model in the X-T Series to feature image stabilization in the camera body (IBIS structure), dramatically increasing the camera's potential for video production and photography. The technology is impactful in night or action photographs, such as sports, and also in video recording in situations prone to camera shaking.
The new IBIS structure uses magnetic force instead of springs, which increases functionality, making it approximately 30% smaller and 20% lighter than the X-H1 image stabilization unit. The standalone video mode is now activated with a simple button, which in addition to the use of image stabilization, makes the click much smoother.
A new fast, durable and quiet shutter has been developed. Combined with the performance of the autofocus, even faster than that of the other cameras in the line thanks to the new algorithm developed, the X-T4 allows the capture of decisive and previously impossible moments.
The X-T4 is an incredible imaging tool, and has a compact and lightweight structure, which is the core philosophy of the entire X series.
New powerful devices
Thanks to the new IBIS structure, the X-T4 provides 6.5 image stabilization of 5 axes when used with 18 of the 29 XF/XC lenses, depending on the use of new materials for the base part, of the refined layout of the newly developed gyroscopic trigger absorption structure and of the sensors , which have approximately 8 times the detection accuracy of the IBIS unit on the X-H1
The X-T4 is also equipped with an ultra-fast focal plane trigger. Thanks to the newly developed high-torque wireless DC motor, the trigger has a capacity of up to 15fps, being the fastest in the world in burst mode *, and it has an advanced response performance with a delay of just 0.035 seconds on release
The new NP-W235 battery of the X-T4 has a large capacity: it is approximately 1.5 times larger than an NP-W126S battery. It lasts approximately 500 frames per charge in Normal mode, approximately 600 frames per charge in Economy mode and up to 1,700 frames when two additional batteries are used with the optional "VG-XT4" battery clip ***.
Exclusive color reproduction technology
The X-T4 camera features the "ETERNA Bleach Bypass", a new "Film Simulation" mode that uses FUJIFILM's exclusive technology to provide versatile color tones. The new mode simulates the "bleach bypass", a traditional silver halide film processing technique, creating images with low saturation and high contrast for a special atmosphere.
In addition to the faster burst shooting, the X-T4 offers a continuous 8fps shot in visualization while using the mechanical trigger, and 30fps without blackout as an electronic trigger. In addition, the eyecup now has a locking mechanism to prevent breakage or displacement.
The 1.62 thousand-point variable-angle LCD monitor allows for more creative and versatile shooting styles. The LCD/EVF can be configured in three different ways: “Low Light Priority”, which allows you to clearly see the object in low light, “Resolution Priority”, which shows even the fine details of your object, and “Frame Rate Priority” (only EVF), which minimizes the blur in the viewfinder when photographing a moving object.
The processing capacity of the phase detection AF and the new algorithm led to an autofocus performance of 0.02 seconds. This ensures that you can capture and track a moving object at high speed with perfection. The success rate of the tracking performance was doubled compared to the X-T3, which made focusing and capturing portraits even easier.
Professional video functions
The X-T4 camera is capable of recording high-speed Full HD video at 240P, producing up to 10x the slow motion effect. The "Image Stabilization Boost" mode attenuates the camera's smooth vibrations, allowing stabilized fixed-point video recording without a tripod.
On the other hand, the adjustment of the MIC jack on the camera can be switched by adjusting the input level between MIC level and LINE level. The camera supports external microphones, as well as LINE level input from external audio equipment.
New “NP-W235” Battery
The large capacity “NP-W235” battery is 1.5 times more powerful than an NP-W126S battery, lasts about 500 frames per charge in Normal mode, 600 frames in Economy mode and up to 1,700 frames continuously if combined with the Optional battery GRIP "VG-XT4" that supports 2 more batteries.
* When using the mechanical trigger. Among mirrorless digital cameras, equipped with the APS-C sensors or higher, according to FUJIFILM data.
** According to FUJIFILM internal tests.
*** All frame numbers per charge are based on the JPEG format and using only the LCD monitor.
