Pixel Village Fujifilm X-T4 Launch Event

Fujifilm went on to participate in a launch event at Pixel Village after the X-T4 launch which we covered yesterday. There isn’t a lot of new information in the video, but it is interesting how focused on the price they are and that they even discuss ordering from B&H Photo in the US to save some money even with all the pack-ins Fujifilm is offering them at launch.

There were some interesting perspectives shared during the event like that the audio is better with USB-C and that IBIS shouldn’t go unused, but rather if you’re a photographer you should change your approach to utilize the technology. Beyond that there are a few very small details listed below for those looking for them along with repeated information from what we covered yesterday.
