Fujifilm has unveiled a new mirrorless camera, the X-E4. It stands out for its very compact size and its weight of 315 grams.
Medium format cameras are fine, but they are still expensive cameras for the general public. In addition to its new GFX 100S, Fujifilm presented this Wednesday a new hybrid camera with an APS-C sensor, the Fujifilm X-E4. More compact, the device is above all much more accessible.
Logically, the camera succeeds the Fujifilm X-E3 launched in 2017. It is therefore a hybrid camera with a 26-megapixel APS-C sensor and above all with a compact size to say the least. Fujifilm has even made some additional efforts compared to the previous model on its X-E4 by removing the grip in order to reinforce the smoothness of the device. What offer dimensions of 121.3 x 72.9 x 32.7 mm and a weight without lens or battery of 315 grams.
A screen could be used for vlogs
However, the box has a 2.36 million dot Oled viewfinder in addition to a three-inch touch screen displaying 1.62 million dots. The screen is also swivel, which can be used 180 degrees. Great for vlogging or selfies, for example. The camera also offers several dials for adjusting shooting parameters or priority mode.
Regarding shooting, the Fujifilm X-E4 can capture pictures with a sensitivity of 160 to 12,800 ISO (and up to 25,600 ISO in extended mode) and at a shutter speed of up to 1 / 4000 s thanks to the mechanical shutter (1/32000 s with the electronic shutter). Burst mode allows it to capture up to 20 images per second.
Regarding video, the Fujifilm X-E4 can record sequences in 4K up to 30p in 4: 2: 2 10 bits or or in FullHD up to 60p. A 240p slow motion mode is also available in Full HD.
