South Africans are focusing on learning during the lockdown, with some perhaps considering impromptu careers in craft brewing and homemade alcohol. As lockdown enters…
Fujifilm South Africa on Wednesday announced the launch of its latest flagship mirrorless camera, the Fujifilm X-T4.
Following in the footsteps of its X-T3 predecessor, the new camera boasts a range of updated features, including improved AF and battery life.
Additionally, the X-T4 features in-body stabilisation too, a feature that was previously exclusive to Fujifilm’s X-H1 camera.
“To help improve the shooting experiences, there’s also an ultra-fast focal plane shutter unit, newly developed for the X-T4 to be durable and quiet,” Fujifilm said in a press release.
According to the company, the X-T4’s shutter is also 30% quieter than the X-T3 and features a new autofocus algorithm as well.
“Powering the X-T4 is the new NP-W235 battery with capacity approximately 1.5 times that of the older NP-W126S battery,” Fujifilm further noted.
This means that the device can shoot between 500 and 1700 frames depending on its battery mode settings.
The 26.1MP camera with X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 also features Full HD 4K video recording, two SD card slots and a “movie optimized control” button that allows photographers to switch between still shooting and video mode.
The Fujifilm X-T4 body will go on sale for R26 000 this April. Prospective buyers will also be able to purchase the camera with a 18-55mm f/2.8-4 zoom lens for R31 000.
