Fujifilm USA manager Michael Bulbenko made a 10 minutes video on Instagram introducing the Fujifilm X-T4.
Just as the top Manager Toshi Iida said a few days ago in this must see interview, also Michael confirms the strong pre-orders for the Fujifilm X-T4.
But strong pre-orders in times of Coronavirus COVID-19 also introduce shipping difficulties.
Regarding the shipping, I must say I am confused. Let’s sum up the different official statements we got so far in chronological order.
- March 26: Fujifilm Japan issues a press release, saying that the black X-T4 will ship as expected in late April, but the silver one has been postponed to late May
- April 2: Fujifilm UK manager says that both colors, silver and black will ship in late April, but body only version. The kit versions will follow “weeks later”
- April 9: Fujifilm USA manager says that nothing will ship in April, and all will ship in the 2nd or 3rd week of May
Maybe every country will get a different shipping time? That would be unusual for Fujifilm, but in these days everything is unusual.
You can see the Manager video and a summary down below.
