  1. How FHD high frame rate modes are sampled:

    Up to 120P:

    Horizontal 4832 pixels are readout in full, vertical 2718 pixels are 2/3 line-skipped and then 1/2 binned to 906 pixels.

    Up to 240P:

    Horizontal 4832 pixels are readout in full, vertical 2718 pixels are 3/5 line-skipped to 542 pixels.

    IBIS looked great in this video, that was with a non OIS lens. 

    Those IBIS shots looked great because it was shot with a 35mm lens. The IBIS corner wobble artifacts are more pronounced in wider focal lengths, such as the 16mm lens used in many of the X-T4 reviews.

    I guess the point of the test to me was to see if the RAW looked more natural to the naked eye. For me I can't really tell tbh, the difference is very slight. Zoomed in at 800% I could see the 4K video was softer, but thats extreme. I don't really see any artificial sharpening.

    My conclusion is the 6k sensor from the fuji just putting out a very detailed image more so than the Pocket 4k at least. 

    Due to X-Trans, different editing tools yield different results, Lightroom has been criticised heavily for soft and mushy results demosaicing X-Trans files, hence many prefer Capture One.

    which should yield pretty much the same result? 

    Well the H.264/HEVC will definitely be softer, due to downscaling (we don't know what algorithm Fuji uses to downscale 6K), 4:2:0 colour sampling (vs. JPEG 4:2:2) and higher compression ratio.

    Warping is only when you use electronic stabilization.

    I don’t know what to think about this X-T4.
    Fuji gave us everything they should include in the X-T3, but no true Game changer,
    Still some quirks (crop on 4k60, no internal 4.2.2, recording limit, exposure step).

    Hope the XH-2 will me more than that.


    Warping happens with IBIS only.

    When Fuji shifted production from Japan to China on XT3 there were quite a couple lemon units. That wasn't nearly the case with XT2. Quality Control just isn't the same.

    Anyways, are you saying XT4 country of origin is random?

    That's just your stereotype and bias.

    Made in Japan X-Pro 3 had some serious QC issue: https://***URL removed***/forums/thread/4465821

    Can I jump into conclusion that "made in Japan" has now become complete crap?

    X-T4 are made in both China and Japan.

    I guess it is safe to infer silver version will be made in Japan... Nice find cowboy ; -)

    wtf just noticed this:

    ..different manufacturing depending on color or do you think the made in Japan is pre-sample model only?

    I usually always get black version but would go silver if it means MIJ..

    Retail X-T4 units are made in more than one country, to the same standard.

    Is the X-T4 the basically an GH5 with larger sensor, but 3 years later?

    I was expecting a bit more, and the Vlogging screen dumbs down what was quite a pro photographic feeling camera line.

    The X-H2 is the one I will be getting, if it ever arrives.

    It's a design that much less hipster, far more practical.

    1080/240p is a first and great to have, so well done Fuji there.

    It lacks the 6K headline feature that nobody actually needs! Bad marketing, but who cares.

    Autofocus seems to be steadily improving, but it'll vary depending on the lens. The fast Fuji X-mount primes are not made for fast phase-detect AF.

    I feel that Fuji long term is onto a winner with GFX 100 video specs in a $2500 medium format sensor size cam, which will get enthusiasts excited while the mainstream goes for X-T series.

    It's a decent update, that's for sure, but price is creeping up to full frame land now and times are a-changin!

    I see a far stronger long-term future for the GFX range than I do the X-T.

    Fujifilm has confirmed that X-H line will continue:


  9. Also, the VG-XT4 battery grip has removed the DC input for stand-alone charging, but it can now be charged with the USB-C connection when attached to the camera body (up to three batteries at the same time)

    Good grief!! That is a big backwards step. Can't you use a headphone jack over USB like the Fuji X-T30 / X-T200 does??

    You can, I literally said that.

  11. This is going to be controversial, Fujifilm removed headphone jack on the X-T4 body and put it on the grip instead (next to the pull tab), if you wanna use headphone with the body only, you might need USB-C adapter.

    I find Mac OS automatically seems to convert HLG footage to Rec709 now as well. Tim Apple needs to get it sorted.

    It's just automatic SDR mapping, in Final Cut you can disable the mapping.
