FujiGuys: Fujifilm X-T4 and Grip Unboxing Plus X-T3 vs X-T4 Launch Comparison

The Fuji Guys unboxed the Fujifilm X-T4 that will be coming later next month.

  • Two QR codes on the box when you open it one for the X-T4 manual and one for the camera remote program
  • Capture on pamphlet and warranty info on the top
  • Followed by the camera with the eyelets for the camera strap already attached to the camera
  • The inner box is below the camera with the padded strap, USB-C cable, USB-C 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C 5v 3A 15 Watt charging block with adapter, and new W235 battery
  • Fujifilm suggests you get a second battery
  • Then they unbox the VG-XT4 grip and it does not include any batteries unfortunately
  • The VG-XT4 allows you to add 2 batteries to your X-T4 and has a shutter lock etc… like the old one, but one nice update is that a USB-C cable can be used to charge all 3 batteries, whereas previously the grip charger would only charge the two batteries in the grip and not the one in the body.
  • Finally, they suggest the BC-W235 to charge two batteries at once

This is all pretty standard stuff, but it would have been nice for them to include a single battery charger in the box in addition to including batteries with the grip since Fujifilm has had various bundles with batteries that made the total package more affordable. This price increase seems like an unforced error considering the X-T3 went down substantially in price from the X-T2 and the X-H1 has been a steal.

For Comparison
Fujifilm X-T4 + Grip + Batteries x2 + Charger at launch = $2237.97
Fujifilm X-T3 + Grip + Batteries and Charger included at launch = $1,830.76
Fujifilm X-T2 + Grip + Batteries and Charger included at launch = $2067.98

X-T3/X-T4 Launch different $407.12

X-T3/X-T4 Today’s different depending on the sale $810.02

X-T2/X-T4 Launch difference $169.99

I have a feeling the X-T4 launch sales will be on the soft side until Fujifilm announced a bundle when production can ramp up, which will hopefully come sooner rather than later because the X-T4 isn’t a huge step up over the X-T3. Don’t get me wrong I am excited to get mine at launch, but I have a feeling this will be like the GFX50S launch where prices and bundles dropped substantially shortly after launch so stay tuned.
