Fujifilm announced the X-E4, which is described as the most compact interchangeable lens camera in the X-series lineup. Its dimensions are 121.3mm x 72.9mm x 32.7mm, which is more than a centimeter thinner than its predecessor, the 2017 X-E3.
The X-E series has joined Fujifilm’s product lineup and has become a choice for enthusiast photographers. They like the design of rangefinder-style and do not like SLR cameras like X-T4, but do not need an X-Pro3 optical viewfinder. Or, you can think of it as an interchangeable lens for X100V, only the EVF version.
Like the X100V, it has a 26.1-megapixel X-Trans sensor, dials dedicated to shutter speed and exposure compensation, and a new tilted screen flush with the body.
The shutter dial now also has a “P” setting for fully automatic program mode. The handle on the front of the X-E3 has been completely removed.
For video, X-E4 can capture 4K/30fps 4:2:0 8-bit video down-sampled from 6K and store it on internal media, or output 4K/30fps 4:2:2 10-bit through its HDMI port video. It can also shoot 1080p material at 240fps.
X-E4 will be released in March and will be priced at US$849.95. Only the body is available in black and silver. There is also a kit priced at $1,049.95, which includes a new version of the Fujifilm 27mm f/2.8 pancake lens (pictured above); unlike the previous product, this product is weather-resistant and has an aperture ring.
It will be sold separately in March for US$399.95, as well as a new 70-300mm f/4-5.6 zoom lens priced at US$799.99.
