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.

Eye Autofocus Tested: Fujifilm is Worse vs Sony vs Canon vs Nikon… but…

Eye AF Comparison

Hidema shared a follow up to his this eye AF comparison between the following cameras:

In his original post, we critiqued the fact that he used the slower focusing XF 35mm f/1.4 lens.

So, Hidema listened, and, as spotted by our friends at CanonWatch, they now shared a follow up video, re-testing the eye AF.

But…

Hidema writes he used “all camera default settings, except eye-AF on“.

This would mean that high performance mode (or boost mode) was OFF, hence the slower autofocus.

Today I talked to Hidema, and he was not sure about boost mode. So he contacted the Fujifilm employee, who helped him to perform this test, and apparently he has been told that boost mode was ON.

One more, important, thing:

Fujifilm has just announced they will release two firmware updates in December and January for Fujifilm X-T3.

The new firmware will bring these 3 significant autofocus improvements, and I expect the results to improve significantly.

The Results

Hidema made 6 different tests.

For your convenience, I have extracted practical screenshots of the results fo the 6 different tests as well as the average results and the time the cameras needed to reacquire focus after the subject returned into the frame.

OVERALL RESULTS

  1. Sony – 95.27%
  2. Nikon – 87.66%
  3. Canon – 87.00%
  4. Fujifilm – 70.72%

For the full results one by one, check out the screenshots and the video below.

Fujifilm X-T3 vs Canon EOS RP: Which Camera Will Save Your Butt if you Underexpose an Image?

Fujifilm X-T3

After his Canon vs Fujifilm colors comparison, Andrew has now published his full Fujifilm X-T3 vs Canon EOS RP comparison.

Yep, once again, Full Frame vs APS-C… and we find out, that sensor size is not all that matters.

Also sensor technology is important. Canon has its own sensors, which are great in many ways (ie dual pixel AF), but have one shortcoming: they are not iso-less (or iso-invariant) as Sony sensors are (which are used by Fujifilm).

Here is a summary of the video (full video below):

This Guy Sticks with Fujifilm APS-C, Does Not Go FULL FRAME and Shares a “Cure Your GAS” Excel Spreadsheet

Cure Your GAS

In times, where we are bombarded with marketing material about Full Frame mirrorless cameras, Jason wonders if he should switch to FF from his Fujifilm X-T2.

But instead of just following the hype (and the GAS), he decided to applied a methodology that helps him to decide more objectively if such a switch would make sense.

First he list the 5 most important characteristics he looks for in a camera according to importance:

  • portability – 30% importance
  • lens selection – 20% importance
  • user interface – 20% importance
  • image quality – 15% importance
  • autofocus – 15% importance

He then assigned a rating to each of the above features for the following cameras: Fujifilm X-T3, Fujifilm X-T2, Sony A7III, Nikon Z7, Panasonic S1 and Canon EOS R.

He ended up with the following results:

Ranking:

  • Fujifilm X-T3 – 7.9
  • Fujifilm X-T2 – 7.75
  • Sony A7III – 7.65
  • Nikon Z7 – 6.8
  • Canon R – 6.7
  • Panasonic S1 – 6.15

The results showed him that he can save himself the $6,000+ he’d need to switch to the Sony A7III (+ lenses he needs), since it ranks even below the camera he already uses, the Fujifilm X-T2.

He concludes that he better spends that money for nice trip with his X-T2.

Of course everybody will get different results, depending on which top 5 features you select and which importance you assign to them.

So which one is the right call for you?

Use Jason’s methodology, download and edit his “Cure Your GAS Excel Spreadsheet” on dropbox here, and let’s see if Fujifilm is still the right call also for you.

Altough I find this a cool methodology, I personally won’t make this test, since I already know that what need to reach ultimate photographic happiness is an X-E4 with tilt screen and this XF 27mmF2.8 with aperture ring.

Fujifilm X-T3, Nikon Z6, Canon EOS R and Sony A9 Soon Outdated Eye-Autofocus Comparison

Eye AF Comparison

Here is an Eye-AF comparison video between the Fujifilm X-T3, Nikon Z6, Canon EOS R and Sony A9.

It looks like they used the slower Fujinon XF35mm f/1.4 for this test, and it is also kind of pointless to discuss the Fujifilm X-T3 eye-AF at this stage, since a major improvement is coming via firmware in April, and the first reports are very promising.

So, in a few weeks, this test will already be obsolete and outdated, and we hope they will repeat the test again.
