Fujifilm X-T4 Press Event Media Slides/Videos Compare Fujifilm X-T4 vs Sony A7rIV Autofocus Tracking, IBIS Performance and More

During the various press events for the Fujifilm X-T4 launch, Fujifilm has shown a bunch of media slides to the press.

Many of those can be found at the Spanish Fujifilm site Fujistas, others ad dc.watch, and others I have found elsewhere. They show some technical details about the Fujifilm X-T4, but also compare it to the Sony A7rIV and the Canon EOS R.

Also, on the youtube channel of the Spanish Fujistas here, you can see a few videos uploaded that show the autofocus tracking capabilities of the Fujifilm X-T4 also compared to the Sony A7rIV.

For our Spanish readers, you might head over to Fujistas, to check out the various articles he has covering the X-T4 launch event.

You can see his autofocus post here.

If course the Fujifilm X-T4 wins hands down in the video, but keep in mind it’s marketing material of Fujifilm, so I want to see real life comparisons, before I make any conclusion.

You can see it all down below.

UPDATE: Fujifilm X-T4 Made in China or Japan?

UPDATE: “I have been informed that the FUJIFILM X-T4 is actually made in China. Fujifilm’s decision to manufacture in China or Japan has more to do with how Fujifilm optimizes its production capabilities with consumer demand. With regard to X-T4, we focused on our China production site because of the uncertain supply chain situation.”

Original Post:

When the Fujifilm X-T4 first look hit the web, we noticed that some samples were made in Japan, and some in China. This is why, in our “24 things you missed about X-T4” article we came to the conclusion that the Fujifilm X-T4 will be manufactured in both countries.

Now a Fujifilm statement spotted by our members of the X-T facebook group, says it will be made in both countries.

The X-T4 will be produced in both, China and Japan facilities using the same high FUJIFILM standards and quality assurances.

Fujifilm X-T4 vs Sony A6600 IBIS, Managers Explains Fujifilm Improved X-T4 Tracking, Mini Documentary Shot on X-T4 and More

Fujifilm X-T4

The long waiting begins also for me.

I pre-ordered the Fujifilm X-T4, put myself in the waiting list, and have now to find a way to manage my impatience.

One of the ways to deal with the waiting, is to just read and watch everything X-T4 related. Luckily I manage 4 languages, so I have lots of content to enjoy :).

I will happily share with you some of the content I check out myself, and here is a next X-T4 roundup.

Down below you’ll see:

  • and interview with a Fujifilm manager, who talks about X-T4 and among the other says that the improved AF tracking was made possible “by using color and shape information to be able to track something moving
  • did Camera Conspiracies find the prefect camera? He compares IBIS with the Sony A6600 and the Panasonic G85.
  • Gerald Undone first look
  • Linus Tech Tips (10 mln subs) launched a new separate channel, where his main videographer Brandon reviews X-T4
  • The Art of Photography talks about X-T4 video capabilities
  • Forged in the North short Fujifilm X-T4 handheld video
  • Cinema5D mini documentary “Arisa” shot entirely on X-T4. Interesting to note: he experienced autofocus issues in very low light when shooting F-Log. He contacted Fujifilm, who recommended him not to use continuous AF and F-Log in very low light conditions.

Of course, everything is still pre-production, and especially IBIS can be improved via firmware a lot, as the past X-H1 firmware updates have shown and the future Fujifilm GFX100 firmware will show.

Fujinon GF 45-100mm f/4 Review: Superb Quality, Fujifilm Shows Their Skill to Produce First Class Medium Format Lenses

The Fujinon GF 45-100mm f/4 lens is now in stock at BHphoto, AmazonUS and Adorama.

So high time for a first review roundup, which also includes the test made by ephotozine, who ends up highly recommending it for it’s “superb and more affordable medium format for the highest quality“:

There is little doubt as to the quality of this lens, giving us masses of resolution, outstanding sharpness, beautiful bokeh, and a virtual lack of any of the usual aberrations such as CA and distortion. There is a small amount of flare in the worst scenarios, but we have to work at it to find it. Fujifilm certainly show that they still have all the skills for producing first class medium format lenses, and it is remarkable that they can do this in a zoom lens as well. Quality, versatility and a price that is very realistic. What’s not to like?

Pros:

  • Outstanding sharpness
  • Ultra-low CA
  • Ultra-low distortion
  • Low vignetting
  • Beautiful bokeh
  • Excellent handling
  • Fast and accurate AF
  • Superb medium format quality

Cons:

  • Slight flare in extreme situations
  • Costs reasonable but high end
