First Impressions: Fujifilm X-T4 (A Ton of Updates You’ll Want to See!)

Fujifilm X-T4

The rumored Fujifilm X-T4 is real folks, and it’s packing quite a number of improvements over its well-regarded predecessor.

In what is perhaps one of the worst-kept industry secrets in recent memory, we can finally confirm that the Fujifilm X-T4 is indeed real. While the XT4 sports the same 26 Megapixel X-Trans BSI CMOS 4 Sensor and X-Processor 4 Quad-Core Imaging Engine as its roughly year and a half old predecessor, there are plenty of upgrades that make it a worthwhile upgrade. Chief amongst these are the 5-Axis In-Body Image Stabilization, the inclusion of a fully articulating touchscreen, and a brand new, higher capacity battery. We got to spend some time with the Fujifilm X-T4 recently during a private media briefing. You can read all about our first impressions after the jump.

These 9 Cameras With IBIS Will Make Your Life as a Photographer Easier

Camera deals - Sony a7 III

Cameras with IBIS make low light shooting, videography, and many other things so much easier.

One of the best changes to cameras over the last five years or so has been the introduction of in-body image stabilization. Gone are the days of needing monopods and tripods to get low light images (unless you’re doing really long exposures) and sharp photos while using extreme super-telephoto lenses. Cameras with IBIS allow us to handhold cameras and get shots otherwise impossible without some kind of support. The great thing is that this technology has started to find its way into affordable cameras. After the break, we will take a quick look at a few of our favorite cameras with IBIS.

5 Super Stabilized Cameras with IBIS That Cost Under $2,000

Camera deals - Sony a7 III

Cameras with IBIS (in-body image stabilization) can make a photographer’s life so much easier.

Cameras with IBIS have been around for a while, but it’s only in the last three years that the technology has become more prevalent. Sony made IBIS popular when they started using it in their Mirrorless cameras. They aren’t the only manufacturers who offer this tech in their cameras though. Another great thing about IBIS becoming more widely available is that the price of the cameras that feature it have come down in price. In this roundup, we will take a quick look at five cameras with IBIS that can be snapped up for under $2,000. Continue reading…

Will Adding IBIS to Cameras Really Help Canon?

Canon will figure out in-body image stabilization sooner or later, but whether they should implement it is another matter.

One of the most significant innovations to cameras over the last five years or so has been the introduction of in-body image stabilization. Sony has used this technology since the a77 II DSLR. Pentax has used it in cameras like the K1 and K1 II. But others like Canon have overlooked the technology and have instead opted to focus on lens image stabilization. Things may need to change: in-body image stabilization has fast become a must-have feature in Mirrorless cameras. Those without it are often seen as inferior devices. Canon is seen as a company that needs to implement this tech as soon as possible. Will adding IBIS to their cameras be enough to win photographers back? Should Canon even add it in the first place? Let’s discuss. Continue reading…

A New Patent Reveals Canon is Finally Working on IBIS (It’s About Time)

Canon EOS R

There’s no telling when, but IBIS (In-Body Image Stabilization) will probably make its way to EOS R cameras in the near future.

In-body image stabilization is nothing new, and the benefits of the technology are plain for all to see, but some camera companies have been twiddling their thumbs and crying too much over poor sales to really pay much attention to it. Fortunately, a new patent shows that Canon is warming up to the idea of in-body image stabilization and the benefits it could bring to EOS R camera systems going forward. Continue reading…

The Next Fujifilm X Series Camera Really Needs Image Stabilization

street photography

Not including in-body image stabilization in the next Fujifilm X series camera could end up being a big misstep.

In-body image stabilization is a feature many photographers look for these days when deciding which camera to buy. Sony has mastered it, Olympus and Panasonic have the technology nailed down, and Pentax uses it in many of their cameras. And while Fujifilm has still been a little IBIS shy, a recent report suggests that the upcoming X-Pro 3 may well include the technology. Join us after the break to read more about some potential X-Pro 3 specs, and why we think the next Fujifilm X Series camera needs to embrace IBIS. Continue reading…

Here are Features We’d Like to See in the Newly Registered Fujifilm X-T30

Will Fujifilm be able to claim more market share with a new feature packed Fujfilm X-T30?

Fujifilm have found great success in the past with the X-T10 and the X-T20, but with competition heating up in the compact camera race they will have to do something special with their newly registered X-T30. With news flying around about the Sony A6500 replacement, Fujifilm will have to bring their A game if they want to be able to compete with what their main rivals bring to table. Join us after the break as we we take a look at what the filing says, and what the Fujifilm X-T30 will have to bring in order to be successful. Continue reading…

Field Test: Shooting Video with the Fujifilm X-H1

The Fujifilm X-H1 is probably tied with the Sony a7r III as my favorite camera for video.

During my testing of the Fujifilm X-H1, I was pretty confused. I had to think carefully about who was going to buy this camera. At almost $2,000 and with some of the most unconventional ergonomics for a Fujifilm camera, it took a lot of consideration. I can’t necessarily seeing folks buying this camera just to shoot street photography; but I’d see them buying it for more professional reasons like portraiture, documentary work, landscapes, weddings and of course the very big one–video. While most readers of this site don’t care about video all that much, it made sense to test it with the Fujifilm X-H1.

How Good is the Fujifilm X-H1’s In-Body Image Stabilization?

The Fujifilm X-H1 is the company’s first camera with in-body image stabilization. But how good is it?

We’ve been testing the new Fujifilm X-H1 mirrorless camera for a few weeks now, and we’re overall very positive about the camera, though there are things about it are making me scratch my head. In-body image stabilization (IBIS) isn’t confusing me at all though. In fact, Fujifilm cameras have needed this feature for a while and the Fujifilm X-H1 is the first one to offer it up to consumers. The company is billing the Fujifilm X-H1 as their ultimate flagship offering for the X series and is about on par with pricing of the Nikon D500. At that price point, you’re getting not only in-body stabilization, but the Fujifilm Eterna film simulation for a cinematic look, fast frame rates, weather sealing, enhanced autofocus, 4K 24p video at 200MB/second with F Log, and a top LCD screen for adjusting your settings.

Is Fujifilm Looking Into In Body Image Stabilization After All?

Not all that long ago there was a lot of talk about Fujifilm and the lack of IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization). They even did some interviews and explained that IBIS was supposedly not compatible with their current X-Trans implementation, also noting they were unwilling to compromise image quality to mak software adjustments to images that would be required. That pretty much put to rest any hope and rumor regarding Fuji and IBIS… until now. Continue reading…
