At $1,700, the Fujifilm X-T4 forces a comparison to full-frame cameras. The Nikon Z 6 will offer better low-light image quality and comparable 5-axis stabilization. The Sony A6600 is another great APS-C camera, one that happens to be cheaper.

With the X-T4, Fujifilm has put all of the puzzle pieces together. The IBIS system works very well, but there are some issues that simply happen with sensor-based stabilization. Image quality is as good as you'll get without moving up to a full-frame model.

  • Excellent image quality
  • Built-in weather sealing

Fujifilm X-T4 delivers very good image quality, even in darker environments. Its 500-shot battery life should last you most of the day. Its metal body feels sturdy enough to take some drops and bumps, though it feels a little heavy. Video quality is excellent, whether you're recording in 4k or FHD.

Sentiment Score[*] 85%
Reviewers from t3 have found the following[***]:
Fuji X-T4 is another built, solid performing offering from Fujifilm. APS-C sensor and chunky 16-80mm R/4 R lens make it a strong performer. It's not like a full-size DSLR, but delivers stunning images without giving you back or shoulder ache.

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
ocusing system, which enables improved face detection and eye AF. Paired with more recent X lenses like the XC50-230mm II or Fujifilm XF16-55mm, focusing is fast and tracking performs consistently. Video shooters will love the fact that the X-T4 has F-log and HLG picture profiles, and can record 4K/60p at 200Mbps with 10bit 4:2:0 colour.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent image quality
  • F-log and HLG picture profiles
  • Excellent battery life
Cons[**]
  • No dedicated headphone input

wired[7]

Sentiment Score[*] 83%
Reviewers from wired have found the following[***]:
The X-T4 offers a new option to output 8- or 16-bit TIFF files using the in-camera RAW conversion software. It's slightly bigger than its predecessor, but it's woefully undersized for a body of this size. Most of the improvements are aimed at the hybrid still and video shooter.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent still and video performance
  • Improved autofocus
  • Great battery life
Cons[**]
  • Gripping grip is too small
  • No headphone jack
