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 Photographer Left Fujifilm APS-C for Sony FF and then Switched Back Fujifilm APS-C… Here is Why!

From Sony to Fuji – Why?

Italian photographer Roberto owned Fujifilm X series gear, but at some point followed the siren songs of full frame Sony.

Now, after using Sony for a while, he switched back to Fujifilm.

In his (Italian) video he explains why.

But don’t worry, you are lucky that FujiRumors is a polyglot (I speak 4 languages), so I am going to translate it for you ;).

Fujifilm X-T3 with XF 56mmF1.2 vs Sony a7iii with Zeiss Batis 85mmF1.8 + Advantage of Shooting f/1.2 on APS-C vs f/1.8 on Full Frame

Fujifilm vs Sony

Sonder Creative and Anete compared the Fujifilm X-T3 with Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 with the Sony a7iii with Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8.

At the end it is a split decision, with Anete preferring the Fujifilm system and Sonder Creative the Sony system.

But I want to highlight one thing, before I leave you to the video and a summary down below.

We know that, in terms of depth of field, f/1.2 on APS-C does not give the same results of f/1.2 on full frame.

In fact, f/1.2 on APS-C is closer to f/1.8 on full frame, and this is why on this comparison you don’t really see any difference in terms of depth of field between the Fuji and the Sony (except for the bokeh quality, which is better on the Fuji.)

The point?

When Sonder Creative exposed properly both images (base ISO, and widest aperture), he noticed that the shutter speed was completely different:

  • FUJIFILM: ISO 160 – f/1.2 – 1/8000
  • SONY: ISO 100 – f/1.8 – 1/3200

He concludes saying that:

one of the advantages of shooting with APS-C, is that you can shoot with a much faster shutter speed compared to full frame

Seen from this perspective, the light gathering capability of f/1.2 on Fujifilm APS-C is and remains f/1.2.

I thought I point this out and let you discuss about it.

Fujifilm X-H1, Still Worth Buying? Fuji X-H1 IBIS Compared to Sony a7iii (with a Clear Winner)

Fujifilm X-H1 vs Sony A7III IBIS Comparison

When the Fujifilm X-H1 came out, it was the first Fujifilm camera with IBIS (well, after this one actually, but…).

Inevitably everybody started comparing Fuji’s IBIS to the ones available on other systems, especially on Sony… and so did Lee Zavitz now!

He now grabbed a Fujifilm X-H1 and tested its IBIS using the latest Fujifilm X-H1 firmware.

If you click the video above (which will start at 4:55), you will see it compared side by side to the IBIS on the Sony a7iii. The difference is hugely in favor of the Fujifilm X-H1. Actually it’s that bad on the Sony a7III, that one might think IBIS was disabled.

On the Sony IBIS side, things do not really get better with the smaller Sony A6600.

As we reported just yesterday Gordon from Cameralabs said that:

in some cases tuning on IBIS on Sony A6600 almost gives as shaky results as with IBIS turned OFF“.

Don’t get me wrong, Sony is great and we are all lucky to have such a wonderful camera manufacturer on the market. They deserve all the success they have, and in some areas they lead the pack (eye-aufofocus).

But sometimes, like IBIS and weather sealing (as reported here), one could get the impression Sony wants to put those specs on paper as a selling point, but they don’t really put all the R&D necessary to make them work at their best.

Not sure if Fujifilm should do the same, meaning don’t care much about how well the IBIS on their smaller X-T prototypes currently works, and just release an X-T4 or X-T40 with IBIS as soon as possible.

At the end of the day it will show up on the specs sheets, and hence become a selling point, no matter how well or not it works.

Or maybe Fujifilm should remain obsessed by how well their stuff actually works, and just wait until their smaller IBIS unit works properly.

Fujifilm X-H1, Still Worth Buying?

So, is the Fujifilm X-H1 still worth buying?

Well, now that you can get it with vertical grip and 2 additional batteries for $999 only, there can be only 1 possible answer: I don’t know, it’s up to you! :)

But if your answer is “yes”, then you have on big problem: the Fujifilm X-H1 is back-ordered on many stores, so good luck finding one.
