DPR: Fujifilm X-T4 Receives Gold Award


The Fujifilm X-T line of cameras is by far Fujifilm’s most popular camera so it is important for them to get the camera right when it is updated. So far the Fujifilm X-T4 has been another successful update since it addresses most of the weaknesses that the Fujifilm X-T3 had, while counting to refine a proven and beloved camera.

What we like What we don’t
  • Excellent image quality
  • Wide choice of attractive color modes
  • Very good video quality
  • Effective and customizable ergonomics
  • Image stabilization allows hand-held video shooting and more stable stills
  • 15 fps shooting with mechanical shutter and >100 shot JPEG buffer
  • Fully-articulating screen great for video
  • Good separation of stills and video to enable fast switching
  • Separate stills and video menus simplify things even for stills-only shooters
  • Good battery life
  • Can be charged or operated with USB power
  • Extensive customization of buttons and interfaces
  • Strong range of video tools (peaking, zebras, punch-in while recording, corrected preview for Log shooting)
  • 10-bit internal Log capture with selection of useful LUTs provided
  • Autofocus performance is heavily subject-dependent
  • No AF subject tracking in video
  • AF performance highly lens dependent
  • Face/eye detection is awkwardly integrated and not as dependable as rival systems
  • IS system not great at identifying intentional movement (can give ‘grabby’ results)
  • Buffer lasts less than 3 seconds for Raw at 15fps
  • Need to retain USB-C dongle to attach headphones
  • Fully articulating screen may not be your preferred option for stills shooting
  • No external charger provided
