Comments Comments

Alongside the GFX100S, Fujifilm has also announced the X-E4, a new 'rangefinder-style' APS-C interchangeable lens camera which slots into the lineup somewhere between the flagship X-T4 and the X-Pro3. According to Fujifilm, it's also the most compact interchangeable lens camera yet in the X-series lineup.

At 121.3mm x 72.9mm x 32.7mm, the X-E4 is more than a centimeter thinner than 2017's X-E3. It has a 26.1-megapixel X-Trans sensor, likely the same as in the X100V, along with dedicated dials for shutter speed and exposure compensation. Inside, it's powered by an X-Processor 4 processing engine.

The X-E4's phase-detect autofocus system covers 'almost' 100% of the sensor, and according to Fujifilm can acquire focus in 0.02 seconds. Fujifilm’s latest face and eye detection technology are also included. 

Viideo capabilities max out at 4K/30fps 4:2:0, which is downsampled from 6K, or can be output at 4K/30fps 4:2:2 10-bit over HDMI.

Two new lenses have also accompanied the release, the XF27mmF2.8, a thin, "pancake-style" prime lens (RRP $699) and the XF70-300mmF4.5-5.6, a compact telephoto zoom lens (RRP $1,449).

The X-E4 will be available at the end of February for an RRP of $1,399. You can find out more at Fujifilm.
