(Pocket-lint) – The baby model in the Fujifilm mirrorless camera range is getting an update in the form of the X-E4.
This mirrorless model has similar styling to the X100V, but includes the X-mount in order to switch lenses for different views onto the world.
Speaking of different views, the X-E4 adds a flip-forward LCD screen for the first time in the X series, enabling that selfie or vlogging angle for those who need to frame themselves.
That extends beyond the touchscreen controls, which were first added in the previous X-E3 model.
There’s also a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) so you can use your eye right up to the camera for composition, which is also handy when there’s a lot of bright light that would make screen-based framing otherwise tricky.
On this inside this lightweight camera houses the same 26.1-megapixel X-Trans CMOS 4 and X-Processor 4 combination as you’ll find in the X-S10 – that camera being the one that aimed to simplify the layout and controls for the series.
Autofocus is said to be good to -7EV, meaning really low-light conditions should be no qualms, while focus is available across 100 per cent of the frame.
Want speed? There’s an eight frames-per-second (8fps) burst shooting option. And with Face AF and Eye AF it’s even possible to lock onto subjects’ faces and/or eyes for precision.
The Fujifilm X-E4 will hit stores at the very end of February 2021, priced £799 body only in black or silver. There’s also a 27mm kit lens package, priced £929.
