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 ;).

NEW SOURCE: Fujifilm X-T4 with Improved Battery Life and EVF (Unconfirmed)

Fujifilm X Shooter rejoices at the Rumor of Improved Battery Life on Fujifilm X-T4
Fujifilm X Shooter rejoices at the rumor of improved battery life on Fujifilm X-T4

Fujifilm X-T4

Ok guys,

First off I want you take this information with a grain of salt, as it comes from an anonymous source with nickname (thanks for sharing).

If I will be able to confirm any of the information, I will let you know.

Here is what the new source told us:

  • Name: Fujifilm X-T4
  • Improved battery life
  • best in class EVF
  • IBIS

Except for IBIS, I can’t confirm anything for now.

Now, on FR we are proud to share about 60 rumors a year with a 90+% accuracy.

But a significant part of this community also asked me to be less conservative, take more risks, and share more anonymous/new source rumors I get, even if that would mean maybe falling back to a 70% accuracy.

I am still rather reluctant to do so, but today I try to follow your advice, and share this rumor, even if it’s unconfirmed until now. But this will be more of an exception, as I want to keep my hit rate very high.

And who knows, even our long time trusted sources started as new sources. So let’s hope that todays’ source will be generous with the FR community, and share further details in future.

To the source: thanks a TON for the nickname! Makes things easier. Regarding X100V, I am working on that rumor, and will post an update soon.

And just out of curiosity, I thought I let you vote on what you believe will be the name of the Fujifilm X-T3 successor.

The Fujifilm X-T3 successor will be called...

Fujifilm X-T4, X100V and X-T200 Rumor Recap

We have broken a couple of rumors, and now it’s time for a recap.

And it’s not yet over ;).

So make sure to follow FujiRumors on Facebook, Flipboard, RSS-feed, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram

Fujifilm X-T4

After our recent leaks we know:

  • shipping in March
  • not to be announced in January, but later
  • IBIS

All the rest, the 6K60P, the anamorphic ratio and all the rest, comes from a source in our Fujifilm X-T group, who also said X-T4 would come in late 2020. That’s wrong, so take the rest with a grain of salt too.

All Fujifilm X-T4 rumors here.

Fujifilm X100V

The oldest in the bunch to be rumored, already since months:

  • announcement in February
  • new lens (still 23mm)
  • it will NOT have the X-Pro3 hidden screen

Fujifilm X-T4 Registered and Coming with IBIS in March, and About that 6K60p Video Rumor

Fujifilm X-T4

FujiRumors is (as usual) the first and only website, who told you about the surprising Fujifilm X-T3 successor announcement (usually Fujifilm waits 2 years to refresh it, but this time they waited only 1.5 years)

Now it’s time to continue the leaks :).

I did wait to get it tripled checked, and it’s done now, so here it is: the soon to come Fujifilm X-T4 (or whatever Fuji is going to call it), will have IBIS!

This does not come surprising, though, as Fujifilm managers repeatedly said, that they are working on making the IBIS unit smaller, so that they can fit it into other (not X-H) X series cameras.

The mission has been accomplished. IBIS is now going to be part of more Fujifilm X series camera lines!

And now one more thing.

Do you remember when a member of our massive Fujifilm X-T group shared the Fujifilm X-T4 rumor with the following specs? The member claimed:

  • X-T4 with IBIS
  • expect a T4 about 1/3 of an inch thicker, and about 5-6oz heavier
  • On a good note expect 6k60 and 10bit internal
  • anamorphic ratio
  • fully articulating flippy…essentially an S1H but APSc with Fuji color and obviously much smaller
  • release end of 2020

Note that he rumored it for “end of 2020”, but this is definitely wrong. Now, I don’t want to say that also the 6K video and all other specs are wrong, but the one I can verify now, is 100% wrong.

So, take that rumored specs list with a grain of salt for now.

Fujifilm X100V and Fujifilm X-T4 Registered and Announcements on February 4

Just yesterday I told you to watch out, as nokishita will soon spot a new camera registered at the radio agency, the FF190004.

Well, now it happened, as just one hour ago, nokishita made this tweet here (images below), saying

  • “FF190004” and “FF190005” were registered with China MIIT on January 8th
  • he data release date of “FF190003” registered in the FCC certification has been re-extended from January 24 to February 4

Of course FujiRumors is the only website, who knows (and already told you), what is hiding behind these code names. So everybody talking about X-T4 and X100V, knows it via FujiRumors.

Only the FF190003 is still a mystery (for you), that I hope to be allowed to unveiled soon ;).

We are talking of:

  • FF190004 – Fujifilm X-T3 successor
  • FF190005 – Fujifilm X100V
  • FF190003 – ?

Chances are, that Fujifilm decided to take it all together, and launch everything on February 4.

And stay tuned… as more is coming soon on FujiRumors only, of course.

Don’t forget also…
