In addition to the GFX100S with large medium format sensor, there was another new introduction from Fujifilm. The mirrorless X-E4, which is aimed at recreational photographers, has the same 26MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor as, for example, the X-S10, but fixed, and the X-Processor 4 is also on board. With its 121 × 73 × 32.7mm body, the camera has a very compact design.
In video mode, it can record in max DCI/4K at 29.97p, with 6K oversampling. Internally, the recording is done with 4:2:0 8-bit, externally via HDMI a 4:2:2 10-bit signal can be recorded. In FullHD, line-scan with up to 240p is possible. F-Log is also supported. 18 film simulation modes are available for selection.
However, a horse's foot for videographers is the lack of image stabilization. Unlike many other Fujifilm models, the very compact X-E4 does not offer a moving sensor, but electronic stabilization does not seem to be included either. So the only option left is to make do with optically stabilized lenses.
Compared to the predecessor, the touch display has been revised, it can now be flipped up by 180 degrees and resolves with 1.63 million pixels. An OLED viewfinder with 2.36 million pixels is also available. A microphone port is included in the form of a 3.5mm stereo mini jack, and a headphone can be connected via USB-C using an adapter.
The Fujifilm X-E4 will be available from February for 899 euros, and in a kit with an XF27mmF2.8 R WR pancake lens (Kb equivalent 41mm), which is also new, it costs 1,049 euros.
