The New Flagship
Fujifilm Just Announced Its Latest Mirrorless Flagship Camera: Here’s What You Need to Know
If you just pulled the purchasing trigger on the X-T3, Fujifilm’s now-previous flagship mirrorless camera, you might be kicking yourself because the company just announced its successor, the X-T4, and it looks to be better in basically every way.
What’s new: The big upgrade is the X-T4’s new in-body image stabilization. It uses the same IBIS stabilization system as Fujifilm’s super-advanced X-H1, so photographers and videographers won’t have to worry nearly as much about shaky hands. The new X-T4 has improved autofocus, faster-shooting speeds (thanks to a new, quieter mechanical shutter) and almost double the battery life. It also has a higher-resolution rear touchscreen LCD that will also now flip around.
What’s the same: The X-T4 has the same exact 26-megapixel sensor and the same processor as the X-T3. The 425-point phase-detect autofocus is largely the same (although the X-T4’s autofocus is faster). The video recording capabilities are the same as well; both able to capture 4K videos at up to 60fps (although the X-T4 is better at capturing super slow-mos).
Pricing and availability: The X-T4 will start at $1,699 (body only), making it a little more expensive than the X-T3, and you’ll be able to buy it as a kit with an 18-55mm lens or a 16-80mm lens for $2,000 or $2,199, respectively. The X-T4 will be released this spring, and it’s available for pre-order right now.
