The best all-around, small and lightweight APS-C sensor camera
The new T-X4 from FUJIFILM has been widely praised across the global market for its several new specifications and features that make it one of the best in the business. While a lot of the features from the T-X3 have been retained in the market, the T-X4 has been commended for a few little tweaks and new additions to the highly capable T-X3. A set of new features along with the best features of the T-X3 have been blended to make the new T-X4 a top favourite amongst the mirrorless camera enthusiasts. The well-regarded APS-C-format 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor has been ably producing high-resolution recording along with seamless support for DCI/UHD 4K video at 60 fps, Full HD recording up to 240 fps, with a sensitivity range between ISO 160 and 12800.
The all-new mechanical shutter allows continuous shooting with a speed of up to 15 fps. The BSI design of the sensor also helps in reducing the shutter noise greatly, along with delivering excellent overall picture quality. X-Processor 4 facilitates excellent responsiveness and seamless performance. The sensor has been designed with a hybrid autofocus system that has over 425 phase-detection sites, along with a contrast-detection feature that delivers quick and accurate AF performance.
In-Body image stabilisation
Known for its in-body stabilisation features, the X-T4 incorporates a built-in 5-axis 6.5 stop-effective sensor-shift image stabilisation system to reduce the scopes of camera shake with almost any mounted lens. The 4-axis digital image stabilisation can also be used for video recording to produce extremely steady footage. It is also extremely beneficial when working with slower shutter speeds and under low light or difficult lighting conditions.
Attractive body design
FUJIFILM has always been popular for the attractive and convenient body design, along with sensor and processor capabilities of its cameras. The T-X4 is no exception with a large, bright 3.69m-dot electronic viewfinder that can be set to a 100 fps refresh rate that delivers superb smoothness especially when panning or tracking an object. The rear 3.0″ 1.62m-dot touchscreen LCD now features a vari-angle design that enables working from all angles including high, low, and front-facing angles. Dual SD UHS-II memory card slots, built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, which also enables wireless remote camera control and image sharing to a mobile device, and a 3.5mm microphone jack and 2.5mm remote port with an included headphone adapter, can surely be reckoned to be a bonus on this excellent package.
A range of video capabilities
The T-X4 offers internal DCI/UHD 4K recording at up to 60 fps and Full HD recording up to 240 fps for ultra slow-motion playback. The X-Processor 4 reduces the rolling shutter distortion when filming moving subjects. It also offers 10-bit colour depth and the F-Log gamma setting, which magnifies the potential dynamic range in difficult scenes highlighting tone, shadow tone, colour, and sharpness.
All that being said, the T-X4 is a solid package and is sure to impress a lot of enthusiasts and experts in the arriving times. With its launch in the market in 2020, the T-X4 promises a new vision into more seamlessness and perfection in photography, with its redeveloped shutter, retained and reinvented features, and top-class performance.
