Bought myself a new camera body. It was a tough pill to swallow.
Actually I have a Fujifilm X-T2, which I tried to use till it’s unusable. The straw that broke the camel’s back was the dial that switches between modes. When every mode I tried to switch to, will trigger only the video mode, rending the camera unusable for photography. Though the eye piece is gone, tripod mount is loose and internal speakers is spoilt.
Sending the X-T2 for camera repair, due to lockdown, the process of even getting a quotation was a few weeks long.
That’s when the poison began. I began to look at Fujifilm X-T4. Hahaha
The improvements i gain with this new body is definitely a jump! Here are the stuff that I’m most excited about comparing X-T4 to X-T2.
- Flip screen for vlogging
- Bigger battery
- Touch screen functions
- Face and Eye tracking
- Faster autofocus
- A slighty bigger body so my pinky finger has something to grip
- Lovely shutter sound
- In body image stabilization
Although Fujifilm X-T5 is rumored to be next, with a different sensor and more bells and whistles, it won’t be till late 2022 before it’s launched, and the price will be quite expensive, because frankly, sensors are expensive.
