What we don’t like:

  • Autofocus performance is heavily subject-dependent
  • No AF subject tracking in video
  • AF performance highly lens dependent
  • Face/eye detection is awkwardly integrated and not as dependable as rival systems
  • IS system not great at identifying intentional movement (can give ‘grabby’ results)
  • Buffer lasts less than 3 seconds for Raw at 15fps
  • Limited video recording time may be restrictive for certain types of shooting
  • Need to retain USB-C dongle to attach headphones
  • Fully articulating screen may not be your preferred option for stills shooting
  • No external charger provided

Conclusion from DPReview:

The X-T4 is one of the most expensive APS-C cameras available but also probably the most capable. Its autofocus system isn’t quite as consistent or refined as the best of its rivals but in every other respect it excels. Its images are attractive, its video quality superb and it’s engaging to shoot with.
