What did FUJIFILM bring to the table, in order to make that camera so likeable? Well, first of all, they kept (almost) all the good stuff one can find inside the X-T3. Here is a short list of what is untouched:
Sensor: : 26.1MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor
Processor: X Processor 4
ISO Range: 160 to 12,800 (exp 80-51,200)
Shutter speed:30fps (electronic shutter, 1.25x crop mode) 15fps (mechanical shutter)
Screen: 3-inch vari-angle touchscreen, 1.62m dots
Viewfinder: EVF, 3.69m dots
Video: C 4K & UHD at 60/50/30/25/24p
Storage: 2x SD/SDHC/SDXC (UHS II)
Battery: NPW235 battery
Camera Size: 134.6 x 92.8 x 63.8mm
Body Weight: 607g (body only)
* H264 / H265 encoding
* 4K (up to 60p) resolution and frame rate
* High data rate recording (Up to 400 Mbps)
* All Intra (Alongside Long GOP) compression
* 10 bit 4:2:0 color samplingTouch screen LCD
* Excellent audio performance (For a mirrorless camera)
Fuji has improved autofocus algorithms with focus speed as fast as 0.02s.
They've also added a new wide tracking mode. similar to what Sony has. with real-time tracking you can now tap on the object you want the camera to follow and it'll track it in the frame. Additional improvements to face and eye detection have been made over the current X-T3. Plus improved subject tracking on subjects moving across the frame.
Like with the X-T3, one of my issues with this camera is the EVF. Move your eye a bit away from the center, and you will feel as if your focus has changed. Adjust the little diopter knob, and you will find yourself doing it again a few minutes later. I truly hope that FUJIFILM will move on by replacing this part of the camera with a more advanced solution.I’ve mentioned that possible autofocus hiccup farther up, BUT during a professional paid job, my advice is to do the obvious and shoot interviews in MF or AF-S focus modes and use AF-C when necessary, like when following people and objects.The recording button (camera shutter button). Unlike with the X-T3, I found myself recording after pressing it, thinking that the camera has stopped recording (and more importantly vice versa, thinking I’m recording but actually not…) As I was working with a pre-production model, I hope that the sensitivity of this button can be fine-tuned.In full HD 240fps, the image tends to be soft and at times, not free from artifacts, depending on what your subject of shooting is and the way of framing it. This high frame rate mode does not like horizontal lines as it tends to “break” them apart. On the other hand, concentrate on a subject and blur the background, and you got a “free” ticket to the wonderful world of super slow motion.
