Fujifilm X-T4 vs Nikon Z6 Focus Tracking Tests using Fringer Adapters and Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L II

Fringer has shared a video, where he compares the performance of the Canon EF300mm f/2.8L II on the (pre-production) Fujifilm X-T4 and the Nikon Z6 using the Fringer smart autofocus adapter.

You can see the video down below.

The results:

  • Nikon Z6 at 9 fps: sharp images 20/25
  • Fujifilm X-T4 at 14 fps: sharp images 22/25

His overall conclusion:

  1. When adapting the Canon EF300mm f/2.8L II on the Fringer adapters, both cameras perform very well
  2. in stills mode, focus tracking is better on the Fujifilm X-T4. The X-T4 has a higher frame rate and also a higher accuracy (88% vs 80%)
  3. in movie mode both cameras track very well

You can get the Fringer EF-FX Pro II at AmazonUS, BHphoto and Adorama.

Fujifilm X-T4 vs Sony A7III vs Nikon Z6 IBIS and Video Quality Comparison by Max Yuryev

Max Yuryev compared the IBIS performance and video quality of the Fujifilm X-T4 with the one of the Nikon Z6 and Sony A7III.

Details:

  • Nikon looks very sharp, but it’s because adds more sharpening and contrast
  • Nikon and Sony have 24 MP and both oversample from 6K
  • Fujifilm X-T4 oversamples from 26MP, and detail looks the same of Sony and Nikon. Just less contrast a less sharpening
  • all three look identical
  • in 4K 60p is great on the X-T4
  • going down from 4K to 1080p, Fujifilm X-T4 seems to lose less detail compared to the other
  • in 1080 the Nikon is oversharpened a lot and has more aliasing
  • the Sony does not have much aliasing, but has the least amount of detail
  • in 1080p Fujifilm is the best
  • Get the Fujifilm X-T4 if you shoot 4K or 1080p

120/240 Slow Motion:

  • Sony has 19 mbps in 120fps
  • Nikon has 26 mbps in 120fps
  • Fuji has 40 mbps in 120fps and 20 mbps at 240 fps
  • A little bit of aliasing on Sony and Fuji, but way more on Nikon
  • in the really tiny sections you can see that the Fuji has more detail
  • Sony and Nikon are similar, but Nikon more aliasing
  • at 240fps the Fuji gets lots more aliasing and loses detail
  • at 240 fps X-T4 looks slightly worse than Sony and Nikon at 120 fps
  • and yet, the 240 fps X-T4 holds up pretty good compared to the 120 fps on Sony and Nikon. Good job Fuji

IBIS

  • Nikon IBIS does not look that good
  • Sony looks even worse, and “is known to suck when you are walking with your camera“.
  • Fuji X-T4 IBIS looks way better than Sony and Nikon IBIS
  • there is a little bit of warping in the corners on X-T4
  • once he turns on electronic image stabilization and IBIS Boost,  it gets even smoother. It’s not as good as a gimbal, but it’s getting closer. Still a bit of warping in the corners
  • if you stabilize the video in post, the X-T4 footage stabilizes very well, because you don’t have those huge jitters
  • the Nikon with stabilization in post, you see all the artifacting, because there is just too much jittery shake
  • Sony is even worse, you don’t want to stabilize it in post
  • also for vlogging the IBIS works best on X-T4
  • with boost IBIS, the X-T4 is the most tripod-alike, but you get a bit of micro jitter. The Nikon has more micro jitter. The Sony has almost no micro jitter

Max Yuryev says you should keep in mind the X-T4 is still pre-production.

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.
