With ALL the exciting news lately being leaked about the Fujifilm X-T4, I am sitting here wondering what will the X-T40 offer us? However, with rumours speculating that the release of the X-T4 to once again be a cracker of camera.
In 2019 I did a complete review about the X-H1, calling it the perfect Fujifilm camera for its time even when compared to the X-T3 where you can watch a comparison video here. Multiple, but the smallest issues I encountered with the X-H1 at the time of review, battery life, flip screen and autofocus. As a result, the autofocus received an updated via firmware. However, the other minimal cosmetic changes need a body update.
Therefore, the rumours speculating that the X-T4 will offer a completely new battery, attached with a flippy screen. Additionally, the ever-increasing responsive autofocus already offered in the X-T3 may receive a small update.
However, if aimed at high-end sports photographers we may see an attached battery grip, similar to other manufacturers from Canon, Olympus and Nikon. Therefore, I can see some consumers, like myself, being put off from this ‘new’ body design. Hence, what will we see from the Fujifilm X-T40?
Could similar features be implemented in the X-T40 such as 4k @ 60fps, larger battery, flippy screen and autofocus performance? (Already saw from the X-T30) Usually, the X-T baby brother range is a stripped-down version of the larger X-T range. Therefore, my issues with the X-H1 not having the larger battery, autofocus and flippy screen may be fixed.
Fujifilm X-T40 Could it be the PERFECT Camera?
What do you think, could the X-T40 be another secret assassin in the Fujifilm line up? With my needs as a travel videographer, landscape photographer, and having a YouTube Channel, this could be a perfect camera for me and many others.
Speculations from the Fujirumors.com team have seen that the release should be around Feb 2021. What do you think? Am I dreaming and need to pull my finger out. I have used Fujifilm since the early days of the X-T1, investing heavily in the system which you can see from all my gear.
Let me know in the comments below, will the Fuji X-T40 receive the larger battery and IBIS? Or do you think it could be aimed at a different market altogether? Maybe you will stick with the discounts offered on the Fujifilm X-T3 at the moment?
