|Capturing the decisive moment to help tell that story
The ultimate mirrorless camera that satisfies the creative desire of all professionals
|February 26, 2020
|FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is proud to announce the launch of the FUJIFILM X-T4 (hereinafter “X-T4”), as the latest model of the X Series range of mirrorless digital cameras. The X-T4 is the pinnacle of the X Series, delivering the highest performance in both stills and video. A new shutter unit has been developed to be fast, durable and quiet. Combined with the fastest ever autofocus performance in an X Series camera, thanks to the development of a new algorithm, you can now capture the decisive moment that you may have missed before. The X-T4 is also the first model in the X-T Series to feature in-body image stabilization (IBIS), dramatically boosting the potential of the camera for stills and video shooting. The standalone video mode, which is now activated with a simple switch, and the use of digital image stabilization in the video mode, provides unparalleled shooting smoothness, allowing users to immerse themselves in video production. The new Film Simulation mode, ETERNA Bleach Bypass, simulates the traditional film processing technique to create a unique world of low saturation and high contrast.
The X-T4 is an amazing imaging tool, packing with IBIS, new shutter unit and a large-capacity battery all housed into a compact and lightweight body, which is the core philosophy of all X Series. There are photographic moments that only the X-T4, the ultimate mirrorless camera, can help you capture and record. Key features and improvements of X-T4 include:
Powerful new devices
・The X-T4 is the first model in the X-T Series to feature an in-body image stabilization (IBIS). It provides 5-
axis 6.5 stop image stabilization when used with 18 out of 29 XF / XC lenses, thanks to the use of new
materials for the base part, refined layout of the shutter’s shock-absorbing structure and newly developed
gyro sensors that boast approx. 8 times the detection accuracy of the IBIS unit in the X-H1. The unit assists
night photography or action photography such as sports, and also helps video recording in situations prone
to camera shake. The new IBIS unit uses magnetic force rather than springs, which boosts functionality while
making it approx. 30% smaller and 20% lighter than X-H1’s image stabilization unit.
・The X-T4 is equipped with an ultra-fast focal plane shutter. Thanks to newly developed high-torque coreless
DC motor, the shutter has the capability to shoot up to world’s fastest*1 15fps in burst mode, and has
advanced response performance with a shutter release lag of just 0.035 seconds. The shutter unit also
boasts double the durability with 300,000 actuations*2 and shutter noise approx. 30% quieter compared to
・The NP-W235 battery has a large capacity that is approx. 1.5 times that of an NP-W126S battery. It lasts for
approx. 500 frames per charge in the Normal mode, approx. 600 frames per charge in the Economy mode
and up to approx. 1,700 frames when two additional batteries are used with the optional battery grip "VGXT4"*
・The X-T4 uses the back-illuminated 26.1MP “X-TransTM CMOS 4”*4 sensor and a high-speed image
processing engine “X-Processor 4.” Combined with FUJIFILM’s color reproduction technology, nurtured over
85 years of R&D for photographic films, the X-T4 delivers a wide variety of options so you can recreate a
scene exactly as you remember it.
Unique color reproduction technology
・The X-T4 features “ETERNA Bleach Bypass,” a new Film Simulation mode, that uses FUJIFILM’s unique
technology to provide versatile color tones. The new mode simulates “bleach bypass,” a traditional
processing technique for silver halide films, creating images with low saturation and high contrast for a
・Highlight and shadow tones from -2 to +4 can now be adjusted by 1/2 stops, instead of 1 stop, allowing for
・Auto White Balance (AWB) now has “White Priority” and “Ambience Priority” options in addition to “AUTO.”
The “White Priority” mode reproduces white better, while the “Ambience Priority” produces a warmer tone.
・When “RAW” is selected, you can now choose the non-reversible “Compressed” option in addition to the
reversible “Lossless Compressed”.
・The X-T4 offers a world’s fastest*1 15fps continuous shooting in post view and an 8fps continuous shooting
in live view using the mechanical shutter and the electronic shutter enables blackout-free burst shooting of
・The eyecup now has a locking mechanism to prevent tearing or dislodgement.
・The 1.62 mil dots vari-angle monitor allows for more creative and versatile shooting styles.
・The LCD/EVF can be boosted in three different ways, Low Light Priority - allowing you to see the subject
clearly in low light, Resolution Priority - displaying even the fine details of your subject and Frame Rate
Priority (EVF only) – minimizing blur in the viewfinder when shooting a moving subject.
・The Boost / Normal modes are now joined by the Economy mode, which saves the power to increase the
・A new algorithm and phase detection AF’s processing capability has led to autofocus performance as fast
as 0.02 seconds. This ensures that you capture and track a subject moving at high speed, especially when
combined with the continuous shooting performance of 15fps in post view and 8fps in live view.
・Tracking AF performance has also undergone serious enhancement. The tracking success rate has been
doubled compared to the X-T3.
・The Face / Eye AF performance has been dramatically improved. This enhanced tracking ability has made
focusing and taking portraits even easier than ever before.
Professional video functions
・The X-T4 is capable of recording Full HD high-speed video at 240P, producing up to 10x slow-motion effect.
・The IBIS, when combined with the digital image stabilization function (DIS) for use in the video mode,
brings even more image stabilization, essential when shooting video while you walk.
・The "IS (Image Stabilization) Boost" mode mitigates gentle camera shakes, enabling stabilized fixed-point
video recording without a tripod.
・The stills and video modes now have separate menus and the video-only Quick Menu (Q Menu) has
enhanced the camera's simplicity while recording video.
・”Movie optimized control” function has been introduced. Users can adjust exposure with the command dial
as well as the touchscreen panel. With this function, you can switch the STILL / MOVIE mode dial on the top
panel to swiftly shift into video recording with stored video settings.
・Video in the same format can be recorded on to two SD cards at the same time as backup.
・The F-Log View Assist function has been added to correct low-saturation / low-contrast video while
recording F-Log. Video is converted equivalent to BT.709 for display to make it easier to attain correct
exposure in video recording.
・The “Fix movie crop magnification” function fixes the video crop rate to prevent changes in the angle of
view when switching to a different video mode.
・"MIC jack setting" on the camera can be switched input level between MIC level and LINE level. The
camera supports external microphones as well as LINE level input from external audio equipment.
(1) Vertical battery grip “VG-XT4” (for the X-T4 only)
・The vertical battery grip is dust- and moisture-resistant and operates at temperatures as low as minus 10
degrees Celsius. It fits two batteries and, when combined with a third battery in the camera body, delivers up
to approx. 1,450 frames in the Normal mode and 1,700 frames in the Economy mode. When one battery
runs out, the camera switches seamlessly to the next battery while continuing to shoot, even in the burst
mode or during video recording.
・The grip features a shutter release button, focus lever, AEL button, AFON button, command dials, Q button
and Fn button to provide the same level of handling and comfort in vertical shooting as you get in horizontal
(2) Battery “NP-W235”
・This large capacity battery is 1.5 times that of an NP-W126S battery, lasts for 500 frames per charge in the
Normal mode, 600 frames in the Economy mode and up to 1,700 frames continuously if it is combined with
the optional battery grip "VG-XT4" which holds 2 more batteries.
(3) Dual battery charger “BC-W235”
・This charger can charge two NP-W235 batteries at the same time.
(4) Cover kit “CVR-XT4”
・This is a cover kit specifically designed for the X-T4.
