For a sensor 70% fuller than full frame, the camera looks pretty damn compact if you ask me, considering that it has IBIS.
Well, fellow FR-readers, my wife is having some contractions right now, so whenever she gives me the signal, I will grab the car and drive her to the hospital. I might be offline for a little bit, but if anyone of you wants to make more size comparisons, feel free to share it in the comments down below for the community.
Lots of what they say makes sense, but I don’t really agree with everything. For example, the Fujifilm X-T4 is second in the mid-range ranking behind the Canon R6, which costs $800 more. For me, the Fujifilm X-T4 is so much better value for money.
Worth to notice, Canon grabs some of the most prestigious top spots, which in the past were usually in solid Sony hands.
I am saying it since I’ve shared the first rumors: Fujifilm is doing lots of things right with the X-S10. If you don’t need weather sealing or 2 SD card slots, it’s by far the best value for money camera you can buy.
Last but not least the glorious Fujifilm X100V, frankly without any competition in the fixed lens compact camera segment.
In my opinion the GF lenses would have highly deserved a top spot. But I guess the GFX system is not really on DPR’s radar due to rather limited market share, and it’s easier to award gear that is also a big hit at the box office.
Overall the review is not really that positive, as the new Canon R5 and R6 have some serious limitations, and show one more time that putting stuff into cameras just to decorate the specs sheet, but then making them unusable in real life use, is not a smart way to deal with customers, and this might backfire terribly.
But hey, we Fuji shooters have already a lot of stuff to worry and struggle with in our own little photography X/GFX space, that we won’t talk about the issues with the Canon EOS R5 and R6 here.
But one thing I’d like to mention it.
At minute 6:09, Gerald shares the results of his video dynamic range testings, and he says that the APS-C Fujifilm cameras (such as X-T3 and X-T4) beat the full frame Canon EOS R5 and R6 in this area.
Also, as said in another video shared down below, the Fujifilm X-T4 exhibits less flickering at higher shutter speeds compared to the Canon EOS R5. Also in this video, they confirm the Fujifilm X-T4 is winning in terms of video dynamic range. Since the Canon R5 costs 3 times a Fuji body, he would have hoped for better results.
Not bad for the little (and much more affordable) Fuji’s ;).
So, that’s the little good Fuji news. Now back to complaining about the lack of X-T3 firmware and Co. ;)
