How to evaluate the Fuji X-T4 that was blown up by netizens overnight?
This article comes from Pacific Internet
In just over a month, Fuji has released a total of 3 X-series mirrorless cameras, they are X-T200 (January 23), X100V (February 5), X-T4 (February 26). This is probably the highest density of new cameras that S Jun has ever seen since playing with the phone for so long. In fact, Mr. S has also heard a little about it. Since Canon and Nikon have each released their flagship SLRs, how can Fuji not come and play? So, on the day the X-T4 was released, that night, everyone was boiling.
What the hell happened that night? Let’s take a look at the general comments of various netizens –
Such a harmonious scene has not been seen for a long time. For a special company like Fuji, people really don’t take full-frame in their eyes. They have a more professional GFX medium-format system. How can you handle me with full-frame? Popular science, even if the medium-format sensor is only 4433, it is already 1.7 times that of the full-frame sensor.
Medium format (GFX series) is larger than full-frame, and full-frame is larger than APS-C (X series). Medium-format is physically better than full-frame, so it is not difficult for APS-C to “beat” full-frame. . Fuji is in this direction, using the two to “clamp” the full frame to death.
It’s true that Fuji doesn’t play full frame, but it really does more work on GFX and X than anyone else. So why is the Fuji X-T4 popular this time? I summed it up, probably the word conscience. Where does conscience manifest itself? Mr. S’s personal opinion is inseparable from these three keywords: camera performance, video playability, and lens system.
1. How much better than X-T3?
After the release of the X-T4, my colleague who bought the X-T3 not long ago came to me and cried. Why are you crying? How long have you been pampering the X-T3? This is completely silenced by the X-T4 (although the big brother is simple and ordinary, there is nothing wrong with a silent second)? Let’s first look at the main parameters.
I comforted the buddy and said, “Don’t worry, the X-T3 itself is cheap, and you should buy it early and enjoy it!” But the buddy said, “I only bought it for two months!! I lost the five-axis image stabilization of the fuselage. ! I lost 1080P/240P!! I lost the new film simulation!!! I lost hundreds of millions!”
Hey, you buy new or used electronics, but you really can’t imagine when the “new” will come. The sudden release of the Fuji X-T4 this time is really a “big loss” for the holders who just bought the X-T3, and even the majority of X-T3 players have been crying for several nights— – The huge improvement of the X-T4 goes beyond the points mentioned above. The focusing performance and system adjustment and optimization have not been counted.
Unexpectedly, after comforting my buddy, the wine and meat friend on the other sent WeChat to ask me how the Fuji X-T4 was. Although this wine and meat friend has been staring at the X-T3 for a long time, he has not yet started. The reason is that he is afraid of falling prices. He said that he will wait for the X-T4. No, it’s really waiting. I said at the time, if a real man likes it, don’t expect the price of this XT series to drop.
The reason why the X-T4 was blown up is not because of the great conscience and kindness. The X-T4 is 2,000 yuan more expensive than the X-T3, but the guaranteed increase is definitely more than 50%. Not to mention, it’s just a camera that supports five-axis image stabilization and can provide up to 6.5-speed shutter compensation. Even if it’s just this, I think it’s worth it, not to mention the 1080P/240P video madman’s favorite. Format selection.
What new battery life, newly added film simulation for literary players, higher and stronger continuous shooting speed, better shutter release delay of 0.035 seconds and autofocus speed of 0.02 seconds are all free gifts.
2. X-T4 is more than a combination of X-H1 and X-T3
The Fuji X-H1 was launched earlier than the X-T3. The X-H1 was the first mirrorless camera in the Fuji X series with IBIS body five-axis image stabilization, and opened a new “XH” product line series. At that time, some people speculated that it was estimated that the XT series was missing the five-axis anti-shake of the fuselage. Unexpectedly, only a year and a half after the X-T3 was released, the X-T4 with five-axis anti-shake on the body actually made its debut.
The new IBIS anti-shake unit, you thought it was just removed from the X-H1 and moved to the XT body to become the X-T4? You are wrong. Official data shows that the IBIS anti-shake unit of the Fuji X-T4 is developed with a new technology, including the basic components, the fine layout of the shutter shock absorption structure and the newly developed gyro sensor, and 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, uses a magnetic principle instead of a physical spring, and is 30% smaller and 20% lighter than the X-H1.
Why do we keep saying that this fuselage has five-axis image stabilization? Because this is really important. Because among the many Fujinon lenses, there are 12 models with their own OIS anti-shake, and 17 models without OIS (and most of them are large-aperture fixed-focus lenses). What does this show? Let’s look at a table –
This shows that the large-aperture fixed-focus lens in the red area you are looking for has a high probability of blurring when shooting at a low shutter speed with the support of the bodyless five-axis image stabilization. The point is, the X-T4’s five-axis anti-shake test can be 1~1.5 stops higher than the X-H1 under the CIPA standard, and it is more stable! And when used for lenses with OIS anti-shake, there is almost 1-stop higher shutter compensation performance.
On the other hand, we also see that the X-T4 and X-T3 share most of the core functions, such as the same 26.1-megapixel X-Trans CMOS 4 and the same X-Processor 4. This largely determines that the static photo effects of the two are similar. However, the X-T4 has opened the 10x slow-motion recording format of 1080P/240P, which is still far stronger than the largest 1080P/120P of the X-T3. As for 4K 60P, which is still the strongest APS-C in the industry, I won’t mention it.
Well, what exactly can 1080P/240P slow motion do? Just take these pictures…
The above video clips are all shot with Fuji X-T4.
You may question, is 1080P/120P not enough? No, it’s not that effective. Please, this is really a silly question. If you have to be so serious, isn’t the cheaper X-A7 bad? Why X-T4? It’s not that you can’t take pictures…
Brother, is it good to pursue a little bit, 1080P/240P, may I ask which APS-C next door has done it?
3. Q: Is X-T4 worth it?
Ming people do not say secret words, value, value. But I know the reason to give two waves of people worth it.
Let me talk about one thing first, Fuji is going to release XF50mmF1.0, yes, it is the new version of 50mmF1.0 that you have never played before! Refresh the upper limit of your cognition of large aperture.
Someone is going to beep again, it’s more expensive than a full-frame lens, boring! But I want to say that the price is one thing, and it is another thing to have it or not. Want to do 50mmF1.0 full frame? Yes, there is indeed an approximation. The Noct58mmF0.95 is indeed ferocious, 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? The attractive point of 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 really no better than it.

That’s why I said, even if I don’t have a Fuji X series camera now, I can start with this almost complete APS-C lens group. Professional or amateur users don’t have to worry about not having a good lens to use after buying a camera. .
Back to the topic of whether X-T4 is worth it —
If you are an X-T3 user, and all the lenses on hand have their own OIS, and you don’t plan to buy a large aperture lens without OIS, and you don’t plan to shoot extreme slow-motion blockbusters, then the X-T3 is enough for you to play. 10 years.
If you are interested in buying XT series cameras, the already perfect X-T4 is your best choice. At least for now, the dual repair of photo and video, no matter which purpose you use, it can become your powerful partner. Keyboard warriors may say, I don’t shoot videos, so I don’t need to buy the X-T4. If you want anti-shake, you can just use the X-H1, which is cheap. That’s right, but don’t digress. Now to discuss whether the X-T4 is worth it, I just want to say that with such comprehensive performance, I think it is very worthwhile to sell it for a price of over 10,000. X-T3 or X-H1 or X-H1, I do not deny them, after all, without them, there would be no X-T4. It’s up to you to decide which one you want to buy, without pointing a gun at you to buy it, right?
People’s eyes are sharp.
This is a summary that needs no summary. I didn’t buy it, and I won’t buy it, because I still use the previous camera well, but it’s not that I can’t use it. So this article is just a simple talk about the Fuji X-T4. Electronic products come year after year, and this year catches up with next year’s new ones. Smart shopping is the right way. Both XT and X-Pro are Fujifilm’s X-series flagships, and at present, in terms of performance, the XT seems to have surpassed the X-Pro a bit. But don’t forget, the X-Pro3 just came out, and the X-T4 came, and they alternately used the identity of the flagship big brother. Who would have thought that the X-Pro4 in a few years would surpass it? I just hope that you will not forget that the original intention of buying a camera is to create the best images.
