Fujifilm's latest flagship for photographers and videographers, the X-T4 was finally launched in India. It was announced at an online event today.
Fujifilm's X series has become increasingly popular in recent years as a cost-effective, versatile camera for high-end photography and videography. With the X-T3 announced almost two years ago, the Fujifilm X-T4 will aim to put itself in its place as an even more versatile all-rounder.

On its predecessor, it comes with three major upgrades. First, the X-T4 is the first camera in the family to offer image stabilization in the body (IBIS), with 5 axes and 6.5 stops. This will help you in scenarios such as portable videography, low light photography and action sequences. Second, has a new shutter mechanism that allows it to take up to 15 frames per second in burst mode, which is one of the fastest among mirrorless cameras. Finally, it works with a new battery that is almost 1.5 times larger than the last generation, allowing nearly 600 images on a single charge.
It retains its image sensor, with the 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 image sensor. It is an APS-C 3: 2 sensor, which results in cropping 1.5 times compared to full-frame cameras. It brings a new and improved hybrid autofocus system that implements a combination of phase detection (PDAF) and contrast autofocus. The autofocus options for the face and eyes are also available and can also be used during continuous shooting. Fujifilm says it takes only about 0.02 seconds to focus and is double the success rate of the X-T3.
In terms of video recording, the Fujifilm X-T4 can shoot up to 4K at 60 fps in 4: 4: 2 10 bit externally or 4: 2: 0 internally on SD at a speed of 400 Mbps. It is also the company's first camera capable of recording FHD video at 240 frames per second for 10x slow motion capture. Videographers will appreciate the separate menu for video settings and the fully articulated 3-inch touchscreen.
Fujifilm’s excellent color science now offers 18 film simulation modes, including the popular Eterna Bleach bypass for creative shooting effects. Highlights and shadows can be adjusted in ½ steps from -2 to +4. Raw shooting allows you to capture optional “compressed” non-reversible images alongside the “lossless compressed” reversible.
Other hardware features include weatherproofing for protection against infiltration, with an operating temperature ranging from -10 ° C to + 40 ° C. Videos in the same format can be recorded simultaneously on SD cards. The audio jack can be used to connect an external microphone, headphones and a LINE level input from external audio equipment. The USB Type-C port can be used for charging as well as transferring data at USB 3.1 speeds.
