Fujifilm X-T4 Mirrorless Camera With XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 Lens Kit Silver
X-T4 And 18-55mm Lens Kit in Silver Summary
This kit combines the flagship XT-4 silver mirrorless camera body with the well received versatile 18-55mm zoom lens for an equivalent focal range of 27-84mm (full-frame 35mm format). Photographers and videographers benefit from an all new 5-axis in-camera stabilisation system, which provides up to 6.5 EV stops of compensation. The lens also features optical stabilisation ensuring this combination will capture smooth video and sharp detailed images. The powerful X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 deliver 26.1MP at class leading speeds thanks to algorithm updates. The Fuji XT-4 is currently the world’s fastest APS-C mirrorless camera (as of February 2020), capable of 15fps in burst mode. The shutter mechanism has also been updated to deliver 300,000 actuations, whilst together both remain compact and portable at a combined weight of just 917g.
Autofocus is the quickest of any X-series camera and utilises Fujifilm’s renowned phase detection for both Face / Eye AF, able to acquire subjects in an impressive 0.02 seconds. Battery life has been increased with a new NP-W235 model, good for 500 frames per charge or up to 600 frames when shooting in economy mode. Videographers who enjoy hybrid shooting will find a new single switch to change from stills to movies, together with a dedicated video menu for separate adjustment of settings. Fuji’s extensive range of colour simulations has been updated with a new ETERNA Bleach Bypass Film Simulation mode, bringing the total number of presets to 18 on the XT-4. Movies are recorded at up to 4K 60p or ultra slow motion at 240p in Full HD for slow motion playback. The new higher resolution vari-angle LCD screen is an excellent addition for capturing difficult angles.
Previous Fujifilm mirrorless camera users may be well advised to consider the silver X-T4 and XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens kit as a serious upgrade option. The zoom lens affords well known versatility from wide angle through short telephoto ranges and has proven to make an ideal choice for any number of styles, including landscape, travel, documentary and weddings. The XT-4 features a host of upgrades over the previous model, including quieter operation and faster 15fps burst rate. Fujifilm’s legendary autofocus is now even more accurate and faster than on any X-Series camera, able to acquire subjects in just 0.02 seconds, improving already accomplished AF Eye and Face tracking.
A new switch allows the camera to be effortlessly changed between movie recording and stills photography, with a new separate movie menu item for a quicker hybrid workflow. Video capture is professional quality with 4K 60p and also provides memorable slow motion clips which can be captured in Full HD at up to 240p. 5-axis in-camera stabilisation system works seamlessly with both video and stills capture, delivering up to 6.5 stops of compensation. Dual high speed SD card slots, a new Film Simulation mode and extended battery life further ensure this kit will find it’s way into the hands of many professional and enthusiast photographers.
