Fujifilm X Lab 12: Fujifilm X-E4 Development Part 2

Fujifilm released part two of the interesting XLab that is largely about the X-E4 and how it relates to the X100. You can see part 1 here. Below you can find a summary based on the Japanese google translation tools.

  • The X100 was Fujifilm’s first flat front camera and the X-E4 now matches it
  • Concerns about a flat front being hard to hold didn’t disappear until the end
  • Some people hold the camera with their left hand and attach the right
  • You hold the X-E4 differently than other cameras
  • Accessories were made to change how you can hold the camera like the thumb grip or metal grip, which make larger lenses easier to hold
  • The metal hang grip gives a very sold feel
  • The thumb rest feels like other third party products
  • The thumb rest had to be extra thin so you can use the three buttons lined up on the top
  • You get a Leica like experience without the high costs
  • X-E4 is the first XE with a tilt screen
  • The front and back are flat
  • The screen doesn’t just tilt but flips to take selfies without ruining the design
  • The accessories had to be designed to not get in the way of the screens articulation
  • XF27mm f/2.8 was rereleased for the X-E4 with an aperture ring to give an X100 like experience
  • The X-E4 – XF27mm combo looks good and takes good photos
  • The size gives you some freedom in how you hold and use the camera
  • This is a camera you will want to carry around because it is fun
