I know I generally don’t post blog articles, but thought I would make an exception in this case. Two weeks ago due to chronic arm issues I made the decision to switch from Canon RF to Fujifilm X Series camera systems. I traded in all my Canon gear and obtained two Fujifilm X-T4 flagship bodies as well as the new Fujifilm X-E4 for my real estate work. The X-E4 is incredibly small and compact so it is perfect for photographing homes for my clients. It has the same 26MP sensor and processor as my X-T4s and I bought the new Rokinon 12mm F/2.8 lens for that work as well.
The Fujifilm X-T4 is Fujifilm’s flagship camera system and makes amazing images. With it’s 30 frames per second, the X-T4 is as capable as my Canon EOS R6 with slightly more resolution and with the Fujifilm Film Simulations I can replicate Fujifilm’s original 35mm film stock. The X-T4 also has amazingly fast autofocus like the R6, but is smaller and lighter so I can carry it around all day without my arms hurting nearly as badly. I am planning to obtain the battery grip for the X-T4s so I can use three batteries at once for shooting all day. I know a lot of the full frame “fanboys” claim that Fujifilm cannot cut it in the photography world but they are wrong as usual. Fujifilm has been around for almost 90 years and they have 10 years with the X Series system so they are here to stay and they are currently the “King” of APS-C and Medium Format systems with their GFX line.
They currently have all the major focal range lenses available from 14mm all the way up to 200mm with high quality glass and now more and more third party lens makers are jumping on the Fujifilm X Mount train. Tamron, Viltrox and Rokinon already have lenses out and Sigma announced last week that they are joining the party as well. Add that to the fact that you can also get manual Zeiss, Meike and other brands of lenses and you have quite the selection to choose from.
I have always loved both Canon and Fujifilm as I feel these two companies have the BEST color science behind their camera systems and I am very happy with the decision I made as I was NOT about to give up photography!
