DPR: Fujifilm X-E4 Reviewed and Receives A Silver Award


DPR published its full Fujifilm X-E4 review here today and gave the camera a silver award with a score of 85%. The X-E line was one of my favorites until I stepped up to the X-T line of cameras, but the new compact X-E4 is making me consider one as a second body for my X-T4.

“Ultimately, the X-E4 is a camera with a lot to offer and we suspect it is going to make a lot of photographers happy, especially those craving a near-pocket-size X-mount body with Fujifilm’s latest IQ performance. For those upgrading from other Fujifilm bodies, the lack of buttons will likely take some getting used to, but don’t let that be a deal-breaker. This is a camera anyone on staff at DPReview would be happy to grab for an afternoon of street photography or take on a long vacation – once that’s a thing again.”

What we like What we don’t like
  • Excellent image quality, pleasing JPEG color
  • Nice classic styling and compact design
  • Strong video feature set with good-quality Full HD and 4K video
  • The tilting touch screen is highly-responsive
  • Can use USB-C port for headphones with included dongle
  • In-camera charging
  • Good battery life
  • Autofocus tracking performance lags behind the competition
  • No animal detection AF mode
  • We miss having a rear dial and focus mode selector (like on X-E3)
  • More custom buttons would be nice
  • The camera is slippery without accessory grip
  • No in-body stabilization
  • No weather-sealing
