Fujinon Lens Firmware Update Improves Stabilization Performance with IBIS on Fujifilm X-T4 and Fujifilm X-H1

Yesterday Fujifilm updated several Fujinon lenses that have OIS (optical image stabilization).

The only information Fujifilm gave us was “fix of minor bugs“.

According to information we have received, though, it might be a rather important firmware update for those of us, who own either a Fujifilm X-T4 or a Fujifilm X-H1, hence Fuji cameras featuring IBIS (in body image stabilization).

In fact, the new firmware improves stabilization performance of these seven OIS lenses when used with the IBIS on X-T4 and X-H1.

Fujifilm X-T4 IBIS Stress Tests vs X-H1, Panasonic S1H, OIS only vs IBIS only and More

Andrew comprehensively tested the IBIS on the Fujifilm X-T4. It’s a 30 minutes video.

Just so you know, when below we talk about “scientific test”, it means Andrew placed the cameras on a massage gun. That way, he was able to induce the same amount of vibration to all the cameras he tested.

Down below you will find the video and the summary in a nuthsell, for those who can’t watch the full video right now.

Fujifilm X-T4 Top Seller at Mapcamera (Japan) but not at AmazonUS (ranked #66)

The Japanese store MapCameras published their top selling camera rankings for last month.

The Fujifilm X-T4 leads the pack, and we find other 3 Fujifilm in the top 10. I am surprised to see the Fujifilm X-H1 in there, not because it would not deserve that spot, but because it is discontinued on so hard to find anywhere.

Of course thet Mapcamera data is not representative for overall sales.

The Fujifilm X-T4 is, for example, not within the top 50 of the AmazonUS best selling mirrorless camera ranking (ranked #66 at the time of this article), and BHphoto marks the X-T4 black body with its gray “top seller” logo, and not with the golden “1 best seller” logo.

With that said, if big retailers share their sales data, it might not be representative for the overall market, but it can still give an approximate indication of what the market wants and how different markets react to different products.

So, down below is Mapcamera ranking for April 2020

Fujifilm X-H1 Snaps Top Winning Image at the World Press Photo Awards, but Canon is Still Top

Ok, this is a mandatory update to our previous post World Press Photo Award post here.

In our previous article, based on the statistics made by thephoblographer, we reported how most of this years’s award winners used Fujifilm and Nikon cameras. ThePhoBlographer writes:

The big winners are Fujifilm and Nikon in terms of camera manufacturers.

More specifically, these were the Fujifilm cameras used: Fujifilm X-H1, X-T3, X-Pro2, GFX100, X100F, X100T, X100S, X100, X-T10)

I was thrilled about it, and reported about it here. And I trusted the great guys over at thephoblographer, who keep delivering great content for the photography community. Honestly I didn’t check it by myself, as today its my birthday, and I have a day planed with my wife at home, cooking and (a bit) drinking ;).

But it turns out, as our fellow FR-readers noticed, the real statistics are a bit different than the one shared at the thephoblographer.

Fujifilm and Nikon are still strongly represented.

In fact, the most prestigious award for the best “General News” image was taken by Yasuyoshi Chiba with his Fujifilm X-H1.

But the most used camera brand overall, was still a Canon.

And yet, year after year, Fujifilm saw a constant rise in terms of awards at the World Press Photo contest. DSLR a constant decline. And yes, it really looks like APS-C is more than enough to take an image worth one of the most prestigious awards on the world.

Maybe, one day, even some popular vlogger like Mr. Jared will be able to take some decent shots with APS-C cameras ;).

Now the ranking:

Camera by brand:
Canon 31,37%
Fuji 17,65%
Nikon 15,69%
Sony 9,80%
DJI 3,92%
Leica 1,96%
Unknown 19,61%

Camera by sensors:
FullFrame 58,82%
APS-C 15,69%
Medium Format 1,96%
Unknown 23,53%

Camera by type:
SLR 43,14%
Mirrorless 33,33%
Drone 3,92%
Unknown 19,61%

Last year Fuji was 10.5%, now is 17.6%, mirrorless was 13% and now is 33%…

This year Fujifilm won the top award. But also in the past years, Fujifilm was well represented. Look at the awards won in the past few years:

And now, here are the most used cameras this year.
