At its latest X-Summit event, Fujifilm unveiled the X-E4 and it also aims to fix much of the drawbacks of the X-E3. The latest X-Trans 4 sensor, but moving from the X-E3, the main usability improvement for the X-E4 is that it has a tilting 3-inch LCD touchscreen interface. You should readjust it at 180 degrees so that if you shoot a vlog or a selfie, you can conveniently frame yourselves in. In comparison to 1.04 million dots on the X-E3, and it has a higher 1.62 million dot resolution.
Same with the 26.1-megapixel X-Trans 4 CMOS sensor, it’s still the same device that found its way through all the new cameras from Fujifilm, including that of the X-Pro3 as well as X-T4. Thus, while using the electronic closure, expect 30 frames per second of blackout-free shooting and eight frames per second with the manual one. Fujifilm claims that the X-E4 can gain focus in 0.2 seconds with almost 100 percent exposure from the phase-detection autofocus feature, even when there is minuscule light. This also ships with the new auto-detection features of the company’s face and eye, as well as 18 movie simulations, up from 15 on the previous iteration.
There are mini-HDMI and USB-C ports on the side of the device, as well as a 3.5mm jack. And, if you’d like to record audio with an external mic, there is no need for a 2.5mm to 3.5mm converter this time around. Everything that the X-E4 is lacking from a function context is in-body image stabilization. But given that the company plans to market the X-E4 on its own for $849.95, or around $150 much less than X-S10 fitted with IBIS, it really is a comprehensible exclusion. For $1049.95, Fujifilm is going to preorder it with the X-E4. Which should enhance a lightweight and reliable out of the box street photography package. Sometime around March, Fujifilm believes both the X-E4 and XF27mm to be readily accessible.
