New Viltrox 23mm f/1.4 Released, Will No Longer Damage Your Fujifilm X-Pro3

Back in May, Viltrox issued a statement that their X Mount AF lenses can damage the Fujifilm X-Pro3 and FujiRumors later on reported about a free return service Viltrox offered.

Now they are redesigning those lenses, so that they won’t damage your X-Pro3 anymore (see damage in this post).

Just a few days, Viltrox has also released a MK II version of the 85mm f/1.8. Now the updated Viltrox 23mm f/1.4 AF has been released too.

Fujifilm X-T4 ePhotozine Review: Impressive Camera, the Complete Package!

ePhotozine has published its full Fujifilm X-T4 review. Their conclusions:

The camera’s 26mp BSI CMOS sensor and image processing is known to produce excellent image quality, and continue to do so, with exceptional colour reproduction and dynamic range. For those looking to upgrade from an earlier X-T1, or X-T2 camera, the X-T4 offers a compelling set of features, and if you’ve ever been frustrated with battery life from your camera, then the X-T4 offers a great option for you.

The X-T4, with high-speed continuous shooting (up to 30fps), is up there with the quickest, with only the E-M1 II / III and G9 offering quicker continuous shooting (at 60fps), and in terms of video, it’s only the G9 that also offers 4K 60fps video. The switch between stills and video is a great idea, and will benefit video and stills photographers greatly.

The camera is well suited to a wide variety of photography, with good noise performance and IBIS making it better in low-light situations, great colour reproduction making it suited to portraits and other photography, and high-speed shooting further expands the camera’s appeal in particular for wildlife or sports photography.

For anyone wanting the best the X-Series has to offer, the X-T4 is it, with a great 26mp sensor, great colour reproduction, and high-quality video recording, the X-T4 has it all, including high-speed autofocus and continuous shooting. Add in-body image stabilisation, along with improved battery life, and you have the complete package.

Pros

  • 5-axis In-body image stabilisation
  • New battery gives extended battery life
  • Excellent noise performance
  • Excellent colour reproduction and options
  • Improved video recording options
  • High-speed continuous shooting

Cons

  • Increased size
  • Headphone jack via USB C

Double Your Fujifilm X-T4 Recording Time Before Overheating with This Hack (Works Only with Selfie Screen ; ) )

Tony Rustlips found a new way to make good use of the Fujifilm X-T4 selfie screen.

In order to double his recording, all he needs is a cheap insulin ice pack. But be aware, it works only with the Fujifilm X-T4, as you can flip the screen out completely and then place the insulin ice pack at the back of the camera.

Oh well, maybe it’s something that will work for some of you guys, too ;).
