FUJIFILM X-T4 is a hybrid camera that uses cutting-edge technology to excel in creating both stills and motion imagery. Free yourself from compromise and be the image maker you’ve always wanted to be. With the fourth-generation X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor, X-Processor 4, a newly developed, compact in-body image stabilization (IBIS) system, the new ETERNA Bleach Bypass Film Simulation mode, and much more, it’s time to extend your creative limits with this incredible imaging tool.
For over 85 years, Fujifilm has been using its expertise in color science to produce some of the greatest photographic films in the industry. X-T4 harnesses the nostalgic beauty of this medium and makes it digitally accessible at the touch of a button. This has never been more apparent than with our latest Film Simulation mode: ETERNA Bleach Bypass, which creates a high-contrast look with low saturation to perfectly emulate the popular bleach bypass film processing technique.
When I made the switch to FUJIFILM X Series several years ago, there were many reasons to do so.
One of the most important was definitely the color reproduction and the Film Simulations. I tend to have favorites over periods. In the beginning, I used the PRO Neg. Std as a starting point for most of my work. When the CLASSIC CHROME simulation arrived, I was completely sold. It more or less removed color correction from my post processing routines. ETERNA Bleach Bypass is already having that same effect on my film work. It suits my style of shooting perfectly,and will save me many hours of color correction in post.
Professional image makers need to be ready to frame moments instantly and, for that, they need a camera that can keep up. Not only does X-T4 deliver the fastest autofocus among APS-C mirrorless cameras at 0.02 seconds*, it is also equipped with a mechanical shutter capable of up to 15 frames per second, so you are ready to create images even during those fleeting moments.

The autofocus on X-T4 is impressively fast and accurate for both photography and cinematography. Often times when shooting video in a one-man docu-style setting, you have to be able to trust using continuous focus — the precise results from this function on X-T4 + XF lenses were consistently reliable.
Being able to shoot stills at 15fps gives you an invaluable tool to capture fast-action moments. One of my favorite forms of the medium is street photography — moments come and go in seconds and a capability like 15fps completely elevates the photographer’s resources in the field.
X-T4 is a camera that has been created to ensure nothing stands between you and your creativity, even the most challenging conditions. To achieve this, it includes five-axis 6.5-stop* IBIS, and an ergonomic grip for handheld stability, extensive weather resistance for protection against dust, moisture, and 14°F (-10°C) temperatures, and a large-capacity battery, all designed to keep you creating for longer.
*Achieved with 18 XF FUJINON lenses.
In earlier days it almost was a must to use a tripod as a landscape photographer. Nowadays I find myself using it a lot less as the stabilization of cameras like X-T4 helps a lot to handhold most of my photos. Other times I would simply be too slow if I always put up a tripod. Also, the durability of the new and bigger batteries was a surprise. Even in the coldest conditions on the mountains the battery was lasting a lot longer compared with the regular size ones. Regarding reliability, I had exposed my X-T cameras to almost every climate you can imagine from the damp rain forest up to severe snowstorms on the high mountains but they never failed.
The evolution of X-T4 is not just limited to stills photography. In addition to the Full HD/240p high-speed recording which gives you a maximum 10x slow motion effect, X-T4 features digital image stabilization (DIS) and IS (Image Stabilization) Boost mode. By combining these two image stabilization modes with the powerful IBIS, X-T4 lets you experience a new level of stabilized video shooting without the need for a gimbal or other third party accessories.
The performance of the IBIS is definitely one of the best in mirrorless cameras. This ability to shoot hand-held while achieving this level of stabilization is a strong asset when shooting videos. Also, with the new film simulation, ETERNA Bleach Bypass, X-T4 has given me a huge surprise. This "digital cinema camera" is sure to expand the potential of the X Series system in the field of creative works.
