Fujifilm X-T4 release date and pricing

Fujifilm’s new X-T4 will be available to purchase from April 2020. If you just want a body-only X-T4, it’ll cost $1,699 / £1,549 / € 1,799, available in the colours black or silver.

Of course, the Fujifilm X-T4’s price will mean it’s now also going to be better than many comparable full-frame cameras, including the Nikon Z6 and the Sony A7III, but while it has a smaller sensor than those cameras, it does also have some superior features.

Build and handling

  • The Fujifilm X-T4 will be slightly larger and heavier than the X-T3.
  • It will have a completely new touchscreen.
  • Its magnesium alloy design is still weather-resistant.

There are a few notable changes though. Pick up the X-T4 and you will immediately find that its heavier. This isn’t exactly a heavy camera compared to equivalent DSLRs, but the extra 68g over the X-T3 is noticeable. Also, the new flip screen will be more versatile than the X-T3’s three-way tilting screen, because it flips round 180 degrees to the front, which is going to be helpful if you like to shoot.

Features and autofocus

  • The Fujifilm X-T4 has 5-axis in-body image stabilization.
  • This provides up to 6.5 stops of stabilization with certain lenses.
  • A new quieter shutter mechanism causes it to shoot up to 15fps.

It might look remarkably similar to its X-T predecessors, but the Fujifilm X-T4 is the biggest leap forward for the series yet, thanks to three main new features: IBIS, a new battery, and a new shutter mechanism.

Fuji claims that the X-T4’s tracking accuracy is twice as good as the X-T3, the Face / Eye AF has also been improved. The autofocus performance will be very quick at locking onto moving subjects, such as for example cyclists.

The X-T4’s final big new feature is the larger battery. The X-T4,can now manage 500 shots per charge in ‘Normal’ mode, that’s a big boost over the X-T3’s 390-shot battery life.

Video specs

  • The X-T4 can shoot 4K/60p video and Full HD at 240fps.
  • It can shoot Cinema 4K/60p 4:2:0 10-bit video to SD card.
  • It has a new IS Mode Boost for static handheld shots.

The X-T4 still tops out at 4K/60p 4:2:0 10-bit video recording internally, but you can mount an external video recorder to shoot 4:2:2 10-bit footage via the micro HDMI port. There’s also a new 240fps slow-mo mode, which sounds like a very cool gimmick if the quality of the X-T3’s 120fps is anything to go by. Also the IBIS will really be a game changer for its capabilities.
