The Fujifilm X-E4 is a rangefinder-style APS-C sensor mirrorless digital camera that replaces the earlier X-E3 mannequin, which was first launched again in 2017.
Though they appear fairly totally different and occupy totally different price-points, the brand new XE4 and the flagship X-T4 digital camera really share quite a lot of similarities.
It’s also similar to the X-Pro3 and the lately launched X-S10, in that each one 4 cameras use precisely the identical picture sensor and processor and provide broadly the identical core specs and options – they primarily differ from one another by way of their consumer interfaces and styling.
By way of its advertising and marketing place and pricing, the XE4 sits above the older X-T30 and beneath the brand new X-S10 after which the flagship X-T4 / X-Pro3 cameras within the present X-series vary.
Within the UK, the Fujifilm X-E4 is priced at £799 physique solely or £949 with the brand new XF 27mm F2.8 R WR prime lens.
Within the US, the X-E4 prices $849 physique solely or $1049 with the XF 27mm F2.8 R WR lens.
Ease of Use
The picture sensor used within the X-E4, the X-S10, the X-T4 and the X-Pro3 cameras is precisely the identical – all of them use the very newest 26 megapixel, APS-C sized, BSI X-Trans sensor.
All 4 cameras additionally use precisely the identical X-Processor 4 processor.
So now Fujifilm are providing you not one, not two, not three, however 4 alternative ways to attain precisely the identical picture high quality.
You possibly can select between the rangefinder design of the X-Pro3 and X-E4 or the DSLR design of the X-T4 and X-S10, and between the bigger X-T4 / X-Pro3 and the smaller X-S10 / X-E4, and nonetheless get the identical outcomes.
In distinction, the older X-E3 makes use of the earlier era 24.3 megapixel APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS III sensor and the older X-Processor Professional engine.
The native sensitivity vary of the XE4 digital camera is ISO 160 to ISO 12,800, which might be expanded to ISO 80 to ISO 51,200, whereas the X-E3 has a barely totally different customary ISO vary of 200-12800 and an expandable sensitivity vary that runs from ISO 100-51,200.
Bodily, the brand new XE4 sits sports activities a traditional rangefinder type design that is outwardly similar to the X100V fixed-lens digital camera, simply with an digital viewfinder and an interchangeable lens slightly than a hybrid digital/optical viewfinder and a set 28mm lens.
In comparison with its predecessor, the three-year-old X-E3, each cameras once more appear like traditional rangefinders from yesteryear, and each look nigh on similar at first look – however a more in-depth look reveals some necessary, and in some circumstances slightly baffling, variations.
Weighing in at 364g with a reminiscence card and battery fitted, the XE4 is barely heavier than than the XE3 by 27g.
It measures 121.3mm × (H) 72.9mm × (D) 32.7mm in contrast with 121.3mm (W) x 73.9mm (H) x 42.7mm (D), so it is also 1cm thinner on paper.
This is usually because Fujifilm have determined to take away the small-ish hand-grip that adorned the entrance of the X-E3 and substitute it with a totally flat, albeit textured, entrance panel on the X-E4 that is tougher to get a grip on.
Equally, the X-E3 had a distinguished relaxation on the rear to your thumb, however once more that is utterly disappeared on the X-E4 which has a flat, textured space instead as an alternative.
There’s an non-compulsory steel hand-grip for the X-E4 known as the MHG-XE4, however becoming that to make up for the dearth of built-in grip clearly provides additional price, weight and complexity.
There’s additionally a steel thumb relaxation accent known as the TR-XE4 which slots into the digital camera’s hotshoe, however once more it is a disgrace that the digital camera does not simply have one built-in.
Additionally seemingly within the pursuit of simplicity, Fujifilm have eliminated the X-E3’s helpful M/C/S focus change from the entrance panel of the X-E4 – certainly, it has utterly disappeared from the exterior controls totally, which signifies that you need to dive into the Fast Menu or the principle menu to vary it,which is far much less handy.
The one management left on the XE4’s entrance panel is a slightly small management dial for setting the aperture/shutter velocity, altering the menu settings, and zooming out and in or scrolling between photographs throughout playback.
Eager lovers will look forward to finding a second management dial on the rear of the digital camera, however maybe the most important change to the way in which that the X-E4 operates is the slightly perplexing omission of a rear management dial, a design function that we actually appreciated on the X-E3, and which in our view is important for a “severe” digital camera.
This stunning omission might have resulted in a cleaner trying rear panel, nevertheless it additionally makes it tougher to vary the important thing publicity settings, particularly when capturing in full Guide mode with a lens that does not have an aperture ring, because the XE4 now solely has one management dial on the entrance.
In most conditions it will not be an issue – you employ the aperture ring on the lens and the shutter velocity dial on the highest panel to set these key publicity values – however when you’re a fan of utilizing entrance and rear management dials as an alternative, this actually is not the digital camera for you.
The X-S10 could be a a lot better match. As an alternative of the ISO dial, Shutter Velocity dial and Publicity Compensation dial discovered on prime of the X-E4, there’s only a customisable Operate dial on the left and capturing mode dial on the correct of the highest of the X-S10, with twin entrance and rear management dials.
Different key variations between the XE3 and the XE4 embody the AF-L button is now shared with the A-EL button, the View Mode button has disappeared utterly, and the Playback button has moved up alongside the shared Drive/Delete button.
One different change to the management structure that we do like is the relocation of the Fast Menu button from the rear shoulder of the X-E3 to the highest panel of the X-E4, a call that makes it a lot much less doubtless for it to be unintentionally pressed.
In comparison with the X-S10 which is the subsequent mannequin up the vary, the X-E4 is about 100g lighter and considerably smaller, nevertheless it does not have a hand-grip in any respect, whereas the X-S10 has an impressively giant hand-grip for such a small digital camera, which is the direct results of the battery being moved into the grip to accommodate its IBIS unit.
It is the smallest, lightest mannequin of the 4 X-series cameras that each one share the identical sensor and processor (the X-E4, X-S10, X-T4 and X-Pro3), so if you need absolutely the minimal measurement and weight, that is the one to select.
Subsequently, its diminutive stature, full lack of a entrance or rear grip and its reliance on utilizing the exterior controls for setting the aperture and shutter velocity all mix to make the X-E4 greatest suited to pairing with smaller prime lenses with aperture rings, slightly than bigger zooms that may really feel extra unbalanced on such a small, gripless physique.
The bigger grip of the X-S10 helps to make that digital camera rather more steady when paired with one in every of Fujifilm’s zoom or telephoto lenses.
Regardless of being so small and light-weight, the X-E4 gives a really spectacular stage of construct high quality – a lot better than the X-T200, for instance – one thing that you simply would not maybe anticipate from what’s in spite of everything an £$800 digital camera.
The Fujifilm XE4 could be very well-built, with little motion in its chassis and a prime plate that has been rigorously molded with excessive precision from magnesium. A lot of the exterior controls are clearly created from plastic, although, which you’ll not like given the extra mid-range price ticket that the X-E4 has.
The opposite fundamental concession to the extra aggressive price-point from a construct high quality perspective is the whole lack of any weather-sealing – if this can be a must-have function, you then’ll must step-up significantly to the X-T4 (the X-S10 is not weather-sealed both).
The opposite fundamental concession is the dearth of IBIS on this digital camera. Similar to its predecessor, neither the X-E3 or the X-E4 function in-body stabilisation, as an alternative counting on the lens to provide this function, which is much less efficient than a twin physique/lens mixture and clearly depends on the lens having it built-in.
In case you actually wish to have IBIS you may want to make use of the X-E4 with a stabilised lens, and for the best stabilisation system total, you may must at the least step as much as the X-S10 mannequin, which is presently the most affordable X-series physique to have in-body stabilisation.
The structure of the highest panel of the X-E4 is similar to its predecessor, with a few variations.
So it has the identical Shutter Velocity dial and Publicity Compensation dial which adorned the highest of the X-T4 – word that there’s a new Program (P) setting on the Shutter Velocity dial along with the Auto (A) setting, helpful if totally computerized performance is required.
The X-E4 not has the Auto mode selector lever for choosing the fully-automatic Superior SR Auto mode the place the digital camera chooses the optimum settings for a given scene, as this explicit capturing mode has been utterly faraway from the X-E4.
As an alternative, the Q button has been relocated right here slightly than being on the rear-corner of the digital camera as on the X-E3.
The XE4 continues to lack a devoted ISO velocity dial – as an alternative, you need to both dip into the Fast menu, which regardless of its title is not fairly as fast as utilizing a devoted dial, or press the unmarked configurable Operate button subsequent to the shutter launch, which by default accesses the ISO settings.
The X-E4 impressively gives at least seven Customized capturing modes, and even higher than that, you may select to retailer AF/MF and capturing settings in every mode in addition to the picture high quality setting, making it straightforward to setup totally different customized modes for various capturing eventualities/methods.
Be aware that this solely works for stills, not motion pictures, although, and maybe extra annoyingly you need to dive into the principle menu system to have the ability to entry them utilizing the Choose Customized Setting choice, or assign it to a operate button for simpler entry.
Fujifilm have made some enhancements on the XE4 to their nearly legendary vary of movie simulation modes, now offering 18 totally different seems in whole.
The brand new Eterna Bleach Bypass movie simulation that first made its debut on the X-T4 has additionally now been included on the X-E4 for each stills and video, in addition to the Shade Chrome Impact,Shade Chrome FX Blue and the Readability settings that each one the opposite X-Trans IV sensor cameras have.
That is principally aimed toward videographers who need a comparable look to movies like Seven, Saving Non-public Ryan and Battle Membership, offering a tough tonality to the footage.
The X-E4 gives 8fps steady capturing when utilizing the guide shutter for 105 JPEGs or 23 compressed RAW recordsdata, rising to 20fps when switching to the digital shutter with none crop, or 30fps with a 1.29x crop utilized, all with auto focus and publicity for each body.
The X-3 might additionally shoot at 8fps with the mechanical shutter, however solely as much as 62 JPEG or 25 Uncooked recordsdata, and it was rather more restricted when utilizing its digital shutter, topping out at 14fps with the main focus and publicity locked on the first body of the sequence.
Considerably disappointingly, the X-E4 and X-E3 share precisely the identical 2.36M-dot OLED digital viewfinder with 0.62x magnification, 100fps refresh fee and a built-in eye sensor. It is precisely the identical because the one discovered within the X-T30 and X-S10.
Positioned over to the far-left of the digital camera, this can be a main distinction to the X-S10’s centrally positioned viewfinder, so that could be an necessary motive to decide on one mannequin over the opposite.
On a extra optimistic word, although, the LCD display screen has seen an enormous improve. Not solely does it have the next decision than the X-E3 – 1.62M-dots versus 1.04M-dots – extra importantly it’s not fastened in place.
As an alternative it has a double hinged design that permits it to be tilted forwards by 180-degrees, which makes it excellent for vlogging and taking selfies, waist-level photographs, capturing above your head, and film recording.
Not like on the X-S10 digital camera, although, you may’t tilt it out to the aspect or fold towards the again of the digital camera to assist shield it when not in use.
It additionally has a really slim profile, very similar to the display screen on the X100V, which signifies that it lies flush towards the again of the digital camera slightly than protruding barely as on the X-E3.
As soon as once more the LCD display screen is touch-sensitive, so you may take a shot, concentrate on a topic and set the AF space all by utilizing your forefinger, in addition to use the Fast Menu (however curiously not additionally the Foremost Menu) and swipe by way of photographs and zoom out and in throughout playback.
On the right-hand aspect of the display screen you’ll see a small icon which when you press means that you can select between utilizing the display screen to set AF level, or to have it focus after which take an image. In case you desire, you may flip off this performance altogether, nevertheless it’s a lot faster than utilizing the buttons to set the purpose.
Moreover, you may really change the main focus level while holding the digital camera as much as your eye by dragging throughout the touchscreen together with your proper thumb. Once more, it is just a little difficult to get it proper at first, however persevere and it quickly turns into extra pure, if not fairly second nature.
The X-E4 has a reasonably good film mode that greater than holds its personal towards its fundamental rivals.
It oversamples 6k footage to supply a highest high quality fee of DCI 4K/30p with no crop recorded in 4:2:0 8-bit internally and 4:2:2 10-bit by way of the micro-HDMI port to an exterior recorder.
The F-Log profile is accessible in addition to the Eterna movie simulation, the utmost bitrate is 200Mbps, and the film compression format is Lengthy GOP solely, with no All Intra choice.
The utmost recording time is half-hour, which is definitely 10 minutes longer than on the flagship X-T4.
The Fuji XE4 additionally has the 1080p/240p 10x slow-motion mode, first seen on the X-T4, and the identical digital picture stabiliser which works together with the in-camera and lens-based methods.
Different key video options embody IS Mode Increase, totally different Foremost menu and Fast menu methods for stills and video modes, a 3.5mm MIC socket and a USB-C to headphone adapter supplied within the field.
Lastly the X-E4 has a brand new video function inherited from the X-S10 – a count-up clock that shows the cardboard capability in hours and minutes when the digital camera is in Standby mode, which switches to displaying the recording time in minutes and seconds within the Report display screen.
Be aware that there is not any one-touch film document button on this digital camera. As an alternative you need to go into the Drive menu by way of the button on the rear panel and choose the Film choice proper on the backside of the checklist.
So the principle variations between the XE4 and the flagship X-T4’s video mode are the utmost body fee in 4K – 30fps versus 60fps -, the film compression – Lengthy GOP versus Lengthy GOP/All Intra -, the interior bit fee – 8-bit versus 10-bit -, and the recording time – 30 minutes versus 20 minutes.
The brand new X-E4 has precisely the identical hybrid autofocus system with section detection and and distinction detections factors because the X-T4, X-Pro3 and X-S10, which is much extra superior than the AF system on the X-E3.
Within the Single level AF mode there are as much as 425 selectable AF factors organized in a 25×17 grid. Alternatively, the digital camera might be set to 117 factors in a 13×9 grid, and the scale of the factors will also be various.
Along with Single level AF, there’s Zone AF which permits the AF factors to be chosen in 3×3, 5×5 or 7×7 teams, and Extensive/Monitoring AF.
Autofocus functionality in low gentle can also be considerably improved, with the digital camera in a position to focus all the way down to -7EV identical to within the X-T4, in comparison with a nonetheless spectacular -4EV on the X-E3.
Maybe unsurprisingly given its measurement and identical to its predecessor, the Fujifilm X-E4 solely has a single SD UHS-II reminiscence card slot, slightly than twin card slots. The reminiscence card slot is slightly inconveniently positioned subsequent to the battery in a shared compartment on the underside of the digital camera.
The Fujifilm X-E4 makes use of precisely the identical NP-126S battery because the X-E3, slightly than the bigger capability NP-W235 battery utilized by the X-T4 mannequin.
This gives a CIPA-rated battery lifetime of as much as 460 pictures on a single cost in regular mode, over 100 greater than the X-E3, and 600 pictures within the ‘financial system’ mode.
The XE4 will also be powered and charged by way of a USB-C connection, which is beneficial when you’re out and about and have a appropriate powerbank to plug the digital camera into, a function that the older XE3 does not provide.
Similar to its predecessor, the brand new X-E4 gives Bluetooth connectivity along with the now ubiquitous Wifi. You should utilize this function to attach the X-E4 to a smartphone, even when the digital camera is turned off, and mechanically switch photographs from for backup or extra in all probability sharing by way of your social community of alternative.
A steel tripod mount is positioned barely off-centre from the lens and subsequent to the battery/reminiscence card compartment, so you may need to take away the digital camera from the tripod to vary the battery or the reminiscence card.
Picture High quality
The entire pattern photographs on this evaluate have been taken utilizing the 26.1 megapixel Uncooked + Superb JPEG setting, which provides a median picture measurement of round 55Mb and 10Mb respectively.
With an similar sensor to the Fujifilm X-T4, the X-E4 boasts equally excellent picture high quality.
The native sensitivity vary is ISO 160 to ISO 12,800, which might be expanded to ISO 80 to ISO 51,200.
In JPEG photographs there is no such thing as a seen signal of noise all the way in which as much as ISO 6400, which is mightily spectacular for an APS-C sensor.
The impression of noise at ISO 12,800 is seen by way of a minor color desaturation and smudged element in shadow areas.
The prolonged excessive settings of ISO 25,600 and ISO 51,200 progressively exhibit extra noise however these photographs are nonetheless useable.
We like the applying of noise discount in these JPEG photographs – it is not too heavy handed in order to overly smudge element.
In RAW recordsdata the place no noise discount is utilized, noise is extra evident however photographs nonetheless look fairly clear as much as ISO 12,800.
We might fortunately shoot the complete native ISO vary in RAW and JPEG and it is not typically that let’s imagine that a few digital camera.
Elsewhere, we love the Fujifilm color science. The sensor of the XE4 makes use of a distinct color array to different manufacturers and the outcomes are beautiful, particularly whenever you issue within the alternative of Fujifilm’s movie simulation for various color results. Provia is the usual mode and we’re keen on the Eterna Cinema mode.

Set the shutter velocity dial to its S place (Shutter Velocity Precedence) and shutter speeds as much as quarter-hour can be found.
Mixed with such management over noise, the X-E4 is a superb night time shooter.
A dynamic vary (DR) enhance is at all times on, with a alternative between auto, 100%, 200% and 400%. We taken have similar photographs going by way of this vary of settings and the seen distinction of element within the excessive shadow and highlights areas is definitely slightly delicate. As such, for essentially the most half we stored DR within the auto setting.
There’s additionally a HDR choice with choices of Auto, 200%, 400%, 800% and 800%+. A number of photographs are recorded and mixed into one ultimate picture of larger dynamic vary. With each IBIS and OIS energetic and fast multi-frame seize, it’s totally presumably to make use of the HDR mode handheld (relying in your shutter velocity).
There are 12 totally different movie simulation modes, two of which (Acros and Black & White) have a number of sub-options.

As the most affordable approach to purchase into Fujifilm’s greatest picture high quality, quickest processing and newest feature-set, the brand new X-E4 digital camera is immediately price contemplating, particularly as it’s also stunning to take a look at because of a pared-back redesign of its consumer interface.
It is also the smallest and lightest digital camera to function Fuji’s newest 4th-generation 26 megapixel, APS-C sized, BSI X-Trans sensor and X-Processor 4 processor, so if you need the newest tech inside essentially the most moveable physique, that is the mannequin to go for.
The truth that the X-E4 prices roughly half as a lot as an X-T4 and but delivers the identical picture high quality and efficiency and many of the similar options is one other large motive to contemplate this digital camera.
It additionally makes quite a lot of sense as an interchangeable lens different to the X100V fixed-lens digital camera, which the X-E4 very carefully resembles in it design ethos.
It isn’t all excellent news, although, because the simplification of the management structure and the discount in measurement in comparison with the earlier X-E3 has resulted in a digital camera that is much less easy-to-use and fewer intuitive than its predecessor.
From the whole thank of a hand- and thumb-grip to the dearth of a second management dial and the decreased variety of exterior controls which place extra emphasis on utilizing the menu system, it is clear that whereas the X-E4 is undoubtedly extra pleasing on the attention than the X-E3, it is also tougher to make use of, very true when you’ve spent quite a lot of time utilizing the X-E3.
The small measurement and low weight of the X-E4, coupled with not having a hand-grip of any form, make it greatest suited to being paired with Fuji’s smaller lenses, like their wonderful vary of quick primes, slightly than the heavier zooms and telephoto lenses.
That is not to say that it’s best to totally ignore the brand new XE4, extra that you need to be conscious of the constraints which have been newly launched.
While current X-E3 house owners who had hoped to improve to the newest tech in the identical confirmed physique might really feel considerably disgruntled by the dealing with modifications that Fuji have made, the XE4 remains to be a mid-range digital camera with a high-end match and end that gives the perfect imaging expertise that Fujifilm presently provide – for these three key causes alone, it is nicely price contemplating.
