The Fujifilm X-T3 has proven itself as an immensely capable and popular camera since it was announced in September 2018. Its successor, the X-T4, is just days away, and the internet is already excited about what it might bring.
Images have been circulating on a couple of the rumor sites in the last week along with a list of specifications that are making the X-T4 seem like a solid upgrade over its predecessor. Rumors suggest that it will keep the same 26MP BSI CMOS sensor as the X-T3, which might be slightly disappointing to some Fuji fans, though it’s worth keeping in mind that the X-Trans IV debuted in 2018 and that’s still less than two years ago.
One of the biggest upgrades might be the battery. The X-T3’s battery, the NP W126S, was felt to be somewhat lacking, offering only 1260mAh. By contrast, the rumors are suggesting that the new battery in the X-T4 will have 2350 mAh, something of a bump over its predecessor.
One of the most significant additions is that of IBIS. Previously, Fuji put IBIS into its X-H1 camera, taking advantage of the larger form factor. By bringing IBIS to the X-T4, it seems more likely that a successor to the X-H1 might never emerge.
As a result, the X-T4 is expected to be slightly larger and heavier than its predecessor, perhaps making it easier for Fuji to include what seems to be a fully-articulating screen. Those who were excited by the prospect of 6K video may be disappointed, however, as that rumor seems to have since died a quiet death.
Are these rumors correct? Will you be upgrading? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
