Fuji XT4 Leaked Specifications – This could be the perfect camera

Fuji XT4 Leaked Specifications – This could be the perfect camera


In this video I will cover the leaked specifications of the Fuji XT4. Intro It’s Simon Yates from the Ordinary Filmmaker. If you are new here, make sure you click the
subscribe button, and all the links to everything I have talked about in this video are in the
description below. Fuji Rumors has just reported the leaked specifications
of the XT4. A big thanks to Fuji Rumors for allowing me
to share these screen shots with you. There are several bug surprises in this video. One big surprise is the X tea four comes with
the same sensor as the X tea three. It has the same 26 megapixels, and costs sixteen
hundred dollars. At first, this seems to underwhelm and will
be attacked from those that never liked Fuji. But dig deeper, and you will find a refined
version of the x tea three and key missing features brought to the X tea four. It still has the dual SD card slots, full
sensor coverage, but we can now shoot photos in Tiff. That’s nice, Tiff uses lossless compression. A nice refinement to the camera. We get the same bit depth as the X tea three,
but if we use TIFF, we get a choice of eight or sixteen bit. Yes, we still have 26 megapixels, but the
image quality has increased significantly with sixteen bit TIFF images. Sure, the Canon ninety D has 32 megapixels,
but twenty six is more than adequate for the ordinary filmmaker and photographer, especially
if the quality has increased. Another big surprise. Well, this is one of those expected features
that would have critics, including myself give Fuji a hard time for leaving out, again. The X tea four comes with in body image stabilization. This is the single most, complained about
missing feature in the X tea three. This opens up a whole new world of opportunities
to video shooters. In body image stabilization provides 6.5 stops
with five axis stabilization. That is one stop higher than the XH two. Battery life is improved providing five hundred
shots versus three hundred and ninety shots in the X tea three. Six hundred shots is possible in economy mode. Phase detection sensitivity has improved from
minus three ev in the X tea three to minus six in the X tea four. That is another wow. Better low light performance. Another plus for both video and photo shooters. We don’t see any changes to the autofocus
specs. The X tea four provides the same 425 autofocus
points in AFS and AFC modes. But what has changed in software? We just don’t know. Continuous shooting has improved with fifteen
frames per second mechanical, up from eleven frames per second in the X Tea Three. No changes in electronic shutter with twenty
frames full sensor readout and thirty frames crop sensor read out. The crop sensor crop is still one point two
five. The buffer has increased. At eight frames per second, we now get 200
Jpeg, forty nine compressed raw, and thirty nine uncompressed raw. And now for what we have been waiting for,
the video specs. The X Tea Four comes with Four Kay Sixty with
all basic frames rates. Yep, the same as the X Tea Three. But there is an improvement in Ten Eighty. In Ten Eighty, we now get up to two hundred
forty frames per second, but there is a time limit of three minutes. Drop down to one twenty frames per second
and we get six minutes of recording time. This sounds disappointing doesn’t it. Or does it? For most of us, we don’t shoot slow motion
for more than a minute at a time. Three minutes is pretty generous. Six minutes recording is plenty in one twenty. No other hybrid camera has these slow motion
specs right now. But the specs don’t tell the full story. In my desired capabilities, I am looking for
one twenty frames per second in Ten Eighty with autofocus. I also want high detail. This is why I don’t like reviewing specs. Is One Twenty and Two Forty detailed enough? Does each mode come with continuous phase
detect autofocus? We will know next week for sure when Fuji
officially announces the X Tea Four. I have to apologize. This is not the review I wanted to deliver. I hate reviewing specifications. They do not tell the full story. In this video, I boldly stated that the X
Tea Four camera would be an amazing camera if they just gave us in body image stabilization,
a flippy screen, and provided general improvements across all desired capabilities. This is the same graphic I used in that video. Look how strong the X Tea Four appears against
an already very powerful X Tea Three. We did get in body image stabilization, and
that is huge for the X Tea Four. We should be celebrating this enhancement. But wait, there’s more. We get hints that this camera is about providing
overall improvements to all capabilities. We get TIFF. TIFF is a well known format offering up to
16 bit colour depth. That’s a big improvement over 14 bit raw
as TIFF is a lossless format. Would you rather see Heif? Heif is limited to ten bit. We get an big jump in image capture speeds. Fifteen frames per second up from eleven frames. This is the territory of the Canon 1DX mark
III and the Nikon D6. That’s huge. Sure these are powerful fast action full frame
sports cameras. But they are huge, expensive and not designed
for the ordinary filmmaker and photographer. The X Tea Four’s buffer has increased in
size. We now get 200 jpeg files before filling at
eight frames per second. The Canon ninety d’s buffer can only handle
58 jpegs before filling. The LCD has more resolution with One Point
6 Million Dots versus One Million dots in the X Tea Three. And of course, we now get a flippy screen
instead of that articulating contraption in the X Tea Three. When we first look at the specifications,
they underwhelm us, but when we look at the capabilities, the X Tea Four is an amazing
camera. It’s powerful. Sure, it does not have 6K or 8K, but honestly,
how many of us would actually use these resolutions? When I published this video, many of you commented
that you have no need for these resolutions and would like buy the X Tea Three at a discount
once the X Tea Four is announced. At Sixteen Ninety Nine, the X Tea Four is
perfect for the ordinary filmmaker. But lets not get too carried away. We need to see what is behind each capability,
how each specification actually works. Did Canon’s cripple hammer sneak in the
back door while the fuji folks were sleeping and bash the prototypes? I’ll reserve my judgement until next week
when we have the official announcement early in the morning of February 26. Ignore those that are calling this a minor
upgrade. The X Tea Four is a powerful camera. It provides high detail in Ten Eighty and
Four Kay. It does two hundred and forty frames per second
slow motion, sixty frames per second four kay. We have lens and in body image stabilization. We have access to a large lens library in
video thanks to Ibis. We have focus peaking, zebras and can record
video in h two six five. We have time lapse recording and can produce
high quality sixteen bit photos up to fifteen frames per second mechanical and thirty frames
electronic. It has dual SD card slots, and we finally
got the flippy screen. This is clearly a win. It looks like this camera could put Camera
Conspiracies out of business. It looks like Casey now has his perfect camera. However, It’s impossible to tell if the
autofocus system has been improved from the specs. If they have improved the thickness of the
lines in focus peaking. While the same sensor and processor are used,
this does not mean autofocus has not been improved. Software and hardware work together to produce
the capabilities we need. If the X Tea Four has improved subject tracking,
and use of the LCD, the this will be a top camera for the ordinary filmmaker in 2020. Thanks for watching. See you soon

    So, Simon, in your chart why do you indicate Peaking in the XT4 as "possible?" Peaking on the X-H1 is the best peaking feature I've ever seen on a camera…better than Panasonic, better than Canon, MUCH better than on the S1.

    I just saw all the X-T4 pictures, I have a question, I always save my photos in RAW, and I have always understood that the TIFF format files are used for printing, I would like to understand the differences, know which one suits me best for reach the highest quality, could you make a video giving this explanation? And thank you very much for your content! PHOTOS HERE: https://youtu.be/AlLtkvQ_mxc

    It is very close to the perfect camera, even taking the price into account.

    I’m currently a Micro Four Thirds shooter with a GX85 and the Sigma 16, 30 and 56mm F/1.4 trifecta and this Fuji XT4 interests me a lot. I’ve been saving up for the G9 because I mainly do videography, but it seems like the XT4 could be the perfect camera. Lumix doesn’t have 10 bit 4:2:0 internal for 4K60 yet, and low light performance isn’t great. The only thing that’s stopping me is the cost of changing system. I’ll need $1700 and quite a bit more for lenses. Thinking of holding off till Black Friday/Christmas and seeing if Viltrox $250 F/1.4 lenses come out and the XT4 drops in price. Or maybe the GH6 might be announced with GH5S low-light ability and G9 IBIS. Still though, I’m really glad the XT4 has great specs, at very least it might push other brands to improve their camera technology further.

    Perfect for what? Not for Wildlife – Action – Sport, Fuji is simply missing the long telephoto lenses. The Fuji 100-400mm is such a downer, a very disappointing lens when you expect top results. I expect here on the X-T4 also a substantial improvement in Autofocus (continuous tracking). The X-T3 was in this regard truly a disappointment, for bird photography basically not useable. What else? Ah yes, 15fps sounds nice but does not help you if the buffer just takes 45 RAW images (compressed) – this is basically nothing. It is horrible. So for me the X-T4 for my area (Wildlife) a no go. There are better cameras for this purpose with proper Ecosystem out there. Thumbs down.

    Are you saying that Tiff 16bit encoded internally will be better quality than RAW, which can be encoded to 16bit Tiff in post production?

    For some reason there is a lot of negativity around this camera (on forums) I think some XT3 users are "butt hurt" about the XT4
    IMO bar the price which is a bit high IMO, there addition of IBIS, and better battery and the articulating LCD are IMO big wins. The IBIS and battery were big ones huge
    So nope I passed on the XT3 because of that, this however once the price comes down might be worth looking at

    The XT-4 as the higher end body and within a few months the XH-2 as the top high end flagship body , which then gets a newer sensor and maybe 6K video (not that this is necessary). There must be a larger professional body for their 200 mm f2.0 and future large telephoto lenses.

    I wonder if it has options to use shutter angle instead of speed.

    the 4k even though its the same 60p could be improved with Mbps compared to the previous version.
    as for minor upgrade. compared to what to who? to someone using a XT1 XT2 this is a major upgrade. arguably this could be a big upgrade to someone using the H1. while compared to the XT3 this might be minor IF IBIS, articulating screen, photography shooting speeds are not important to that person. context matters and thus why i appreciate you doing these comparisons .

    No mention of the EVF. I guess Fuji's downplaying that means there's nothing to tell. I'd be suspicious of the IBIS 6.5 stops claim as I'm suspicious of all advertising people who in my book a step beheath lawyers. If that means in when used in conjunction with electronic stabilization which will mean a drop from the 26meg image so there's room for image float on the sensor. It could drop to 16-20meg when both IBIS and EIS are activated together or EIS alone similar to the crop in Sports Mode. I'd like to see the spec on IBIS only and hope it's the same as the H1. Of course even 5.5 is great (actually performance has been tested lower) and I'm still trading in my H1 and T2 as soon as I can push little old ladies on line at the store to the pavement.

    I think if Canon isn't careful with their expensive RF lens line up / EOS R5 price / specs…. Other companies could provide cheaper / better value options.

    People bitching about the xt4, are the ones who just bought the xt3. And are upset, they are trying to justify that they just got xt3. They are just angry people.

    I can't decide. Fuji xt3 + 10-24 or xt4 + 35 2. This will be my first Fujifilm, upgrading from a t3i. I really am into video.
