At the end of this year’s X-Summit at London, Fujifilm revealed on stream today that the Fuji X-T4 will be coming at the end of February.
During X-Summit 2020 Fujifilm revealed the X100V and teased the XF 50mm f/1.0 lens. When the summit was thought to be over, Fujifilm pulled a fast one and revealed the Fuji X-T4 will be announced on February 26th. This announcement came at the end of Fujifilm’s stream with a special video message from Fujifilm executive Toshi Ida. Ida was the one that revealed the Fujifilm X-T4.
Here is the full live stream:
Rumored specs for the X-T4
If the rumors on Fuji Rumors are true, the mirrorless X-T4 will have a much higher resolution than past models and have in-body image stabilization. If the rumors are true, this means the X-T4 will be a much better and more video-focused camera. Previous models in the X-series didn’t include in-body image stabilization because of the size of the cameras. This time around, Fujifilm is reportedly making an in-body image stabilization system that is smaller than what you would see typically.
Additionally, the camera is alleged to shoot 6K at 60p 10-bit video internally. Also, it could feature an improved EVF, a fully-articulating screen, a new battery and a somewhat larger footprint. However, these are all still rumored specs.
Also announced: the X100V
Fujifilm announced the X100V alongside the X-T4. It’s a compact camera sporting the latest 26.1MP back-illuminated X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4. The camera has a 23mm f/2 lens, hybrid viewfinder, and 2-way tilting LCD. For video, the X100V can record 4K video up to 30 frames per second or 120p at 1080p internally and get 10-bit 4:2:2 color externally via the HDMI. It costs $1,399.
GF Lens Roadmap
During the summit, Fujifilm announced the GFX 50R, GFX 50S and the GFX 100. Following those cameras, the G-mount with 13 focal lengths. Also revealed to be in development, Fujifilm announced the GF 30mm f/3.5 R WR and GF 80mm f/1.7 R WR.
We will confirm the specs of the X-T4 when it is released on February 26th.
