The Fujifilm X-T4 is the company's latest high-end photo and video APS-C mirrorless camera. It brings in-body stabilization, faster shooting, improved autofocus and a larger battery to the already very capable X-T3.

Fujifilm says that the X-T4 is a sister model to the X-T3, rather than a replacement, which is borne out by the specs and pricing. It's a 26MP camera capable of 20 fps shooting and 4K capture at up to 60p.


Specifications:


26MP BSI CMOS sensor

In-body image stabilization (up to 6.5EV correction)

20 fps shooting with AF (15 with new mechanical shutter)

4K video (DCI or UHD) at up to 60p 1080 video at up to 240 fps, output as 4-10x slow-motion footage

Fully articulated rear touchscreen 3.68M-dot

OLED electronic viewfinder (up to 100 fps refresh rate)

New NP-W235 battery rated to give 500 shots per charge

Dual UHS-II card slots USB-C type connector allowing USB PD charging 12 Film Simulation modes, including Eterna Bleach Bypass


The X-T4 will be available body-only at a price of $1699, which represents a $200 premium over the original list price of the X-T3. It will also be available as a kit with the 18-55mm F2.8-4.0 OIS lens for $2099 or with the 16-80mm F4 OIS WR for $2199.


The X-T4 is expected to ship this Spring.

For now, the only DSLR high-resolution competitor to the Canon 5DS is the Nikon D850.


With his 45.7 megapixels and outstanding dynamic range.


Up to 9 fps continuous shooting at full resolution.


8K and 4K time-lapse movies with new levels of sharpness and detail.


Focus Shift shooting mode, outstanding battery performance.


His admirers will probably point out a number of other reasons and benefits over Canon 5DS. But Nikon fans' headaches usually start with choosing the right lens for the given situation. And especially for the 300mm to 400mm range. Which is most used in wildlife photographers.


It is true that Nikon simply does not have a 300mm F4 VC lens with a successful auto-focus system and sharpness. Not to mention in the 400mm range. Of course, they got their nice 500mm F5.6 PF lens. The current price is $3,596 witch is far overprice was our opinion for such a slow lens.


Where the Canon 400mm F5.6 prime lens has unattainable sharpness and lightning focus for so many years so far. The price of the Canon 300mm F4 IS and 400mm F5.6 prime lenses and their invaluable qualities make them the choice for most users.


Last but not least, the opportunity to buy Canon 5DS brand new - the international model for $1000 cheaper than the Nikon D850. As well as the cheap price of so many used Canon lenses you can find on the web.


KstarPhotography is also testing the world of mirrorless cameras in the past years. And we have seen, why professional users go back to the DSLR over time. Тhe key reasons are the expensive pricing of mirrorless cameras and lenses. The not so wide variety of lenses. Another factor is the inconvenience of EV - tracking the subject while it is being shot. As is the case with weak batteries.


All these benchmarks and tests over the years, as well as the ability of the Canon 5DS to do quite well in landscape photography, made us choose it as the number 1 budget overall camera so far.


Thank you!
