Fujifilm X-T4 Coming with Completely New Battery – EXCLUSIVE

Fujifilm X-T4

FujiRumors already told you about the “improved battery life” on the Fujifilm X-T4.

Some might think that’s an “obvious” rumor, but if you think so, you are evidently not familiar at all with the Fujifilm X system.

You need to know:

  • it’s since January 2012 (X-Pro1 announcement), that Fujifilm uses the same NP-W126 battery
  • the ancient and glorious Fujifilm X-T1 and X-E1 had a CIPA rated battery life of 350 shots (hence better than X-T2 !!!)
  • there was the battery “S” upgrade, for better heat management (allowing longer video recording), but not better battery life
  • the only improvement we saw in 8 years (!!!) of Fujifilm X MILC system, was the minor jump from 340 shots (X-T2) to 390 shots (X-T3) thanks to the more energy efficient processor

Enough of Fujifilm battery culture… let’s go to the fun part now! :)

Some FR readers kindly asked me if I can be more precise and define “improved battery life” better.

Well, let me try… how about this:

  • the Fujifilm X-T4 will have a completely new (!!!) battery. And with “new” I mean it won’t be the NP-W126 and not even the GFX NP-T125 battery.

Finally, 8 years after the X-Pro1 and 6 years after the original Fujifilm X-T1, we finally get a serious major battery life boost.

And to all avid FujiRumors addicts out there: just relax, there will be lots more breaking rumors coming ;).

Fujifilm X100V with Improved 23mm f/2 lens

Fujifilm X100V

As you know, FujiRumors exclusively told you already the release month and estimated price for the Fujifilm X100V.

One of many long term rumors I have shared back in the first half of 2019, was that the Fujifilm X100V would come with a new lens.

I also added shortly after, that it would still be a 23mm lens.

Many started speculating if maybe Fujifilm would have implemented an f/1.4 lens, but according to our information, the lens will be still a 23mm f/2 lens.

However, there will be tweaks making this new lens technically superior to the one on the X100F, which, I remind you, is the same lens we find on the original 12 megapixel Fujifilm X100 announced back in 2010.

So high time for an improvement on the lens!
