  • Sounds very good. If they give a 12 bit external usb-c ssd option like on zcam and sigma, it will be wonderful.

  • This is exciting because you got to think they must have improved the DR , IQ and rolling shutter in this release, the XT3 was an amazing value for video, this could possibly finally replace my ursa for B cam

  • Sounds good, with 10-bit internal this is gonna be a big winner.

  • Fujifilm X-T4 coming and will be announced Feb 26th

  • New info is that camera in fact won't be available till fall of 2020.

    Paper announcement only.

  • Camera won't record 6K as previously rumored.

  • Hopefully the 10-bit internal info is still correct.

    I'm very curious to see what the dynamic range is compared to the S1/S1H and the BMPCC6K. I really like Fuji color. Even the X100v looks like a great little travel/street camera. I'm due to upgrade from a GH5 and both the X-T4/X100v might be the right fit.

  • 10 but internal is a given, since X-T3 has this, and it was a major selling point. 6k external would be nice, 12 bit external would be great. 12 bit internal would make me wet my pants.

  • Correction, XT-3 is 4:2:0 10-bit versus GH5/S1/SH1 4:2:2 10-bit.

    4:2:2 plus unlimited recording time and decent dynamic range would make this an easy purchase for me.

  • Bad move not using the LCD hinge from the XT-100 ou copied the Panasonic S1H. Both tilt and flip, please both still and video shooters.

  • I dont think IBIS is important. A monopod can do a much better job. And a OIS lens is fine for handheld situations when you cannot use the monopod.

  • But when you can't use a monopod, IBIS works better than OIS for video, at least in my experience.

  • According to Fuji Rumors, the XT-4 price will be $1700.

  • OIS isnt enough in many situations. For instance it cannot correct rolling movements. A monopod doesn't do much when you need to move the camera (boom/truck/dolly etc). Works fine for panning and tilting. And does absolutely nothing when you're shooting in places that won't allow it.

  • Haha Fast charging battery, that's about 5 years overdue. Anyone see any word on the time limit?

  • So there's still a 30-minute record limit, that's a bummer.

    Vitaliy, any news on whether they implemented 4:2:2 10-bit?

  • seems like snake oil here )

  • @sammy

    As one man told me this week - industry stopped.

    Sony still keep moving using money from their smartphone income, but they will start taking huge hit starting March (as they got most of Chinese orders and their cartel partner Samsung is not hit yet).

    Japanese nice idea pay their top managers bonuses each year by selling and destroying semiconductor business now is showing results.

  • 30 minute limit=stupid

  • @DrDave

    30 minute limit=stupid

    Actually not. Looks stupid only from our side of the fence.

    Small money saved for top managers - nice.
    No need to work and modify code ensuring work with larger files - nice.
