But smaller updates abound, at least one of which have the potential to be added to the X-T3 via firmware. So, let’s take a closer look.

Stabilizer

Alright, let’s get the major update out of the way first. Without a major increase in size over the X-T3, the X-T4 incorporates a sensor-shift image stabilizer that’s good for up to 6.5 stops of shake reduction with 18 of Fujifilm’s current total of 29 lenses. We’re told the remaining lenses will all be stabilized to a minimum of five stops.

This comes down to the image circle each lens projects. Most XF lenses, particularly the early ones, simply weren’t designed to project an oversized image circle for stabilization in the first place. And a smaller image circle means you simply can’t move the sensor as far before a degradation in image quality. In these instances, five stops is honestly pretty impressive.

New shutter mechanism

The X-T4 also comes with a new shutter mechanism, which unlocks burst speeds of 15 fps with full autofocus and autoexposure. (Like the X-T3, it can also do up to 20 fps with the electronic shutter, and 30 fps with
