    I know it may not be due until the latter part of 2020, but what are your hopes and dreams for the new XT4?

    Currently have XT3 so unlikely to upgrade but a fully articulated screen would be nice. Have one on my Canon and so much more useful than the tilt type Fuji use. Stiffer on off button slightly recessed again like my canon as it’s just too easy to accidentally switch camera on when putting in bag. Prefer flash to be built in rather than add on as it’s easily lost, not that I use it much. Improved continuous/tracking focus.

    The current way of creating a new folder is a bit confusing in that it doesn’t show up In menu after creation until you take a shot, so a change to show the folder as soon as created in the menu system and also the option of allowing the camera to automatically create a new folder each day

    A decent built in GPS geotagging option like on a mobile phone.

    My inbox has the launch announcement. The X-T4 spec looks like an update to the X-H1 in a slightly smaller body and at not such an aspirational price.

    Yes just read some details, Some worthwhile changes but camera starting to get bigger unfortunately to fit the ibis and larger battery in, also battery charger and flash appear to be extras ! Admittedly I’ve never used the flash supplied with my XT3. You have to charge the battery in camera Like charging a mobile phone, so whilst charging you can’t use it, surely for a $1600 camera it’s not too much to ask for a battery charger, most serious photographers will have spare battery it two. Fuji being a bit greedy there like Canon not supplying lens hoods with their lenses but charging extortionate prices for 10p of plastic !

    Possibly, the best camera reviewer alive :) ... thanks for the share, Mark :)

    I had thought that if I wanted to get a quality APS-C outfit from scratch, Fujifilm have by far the best set of lenses. But I’d have been frustrated at having to buy the XH-1 to get IBIS, despite the XT-3 being more attractive in most respects, and with a better sensor. I assumed the solution would come as an XH-2, but this XT-4 seems to combine the best of both, with IBIS in a smaller and less expensive body than the XH-1. Well done Fujifilm - about time too!

    I also own the X-T3. In December I bought a X-S10. I thought about the X-T4 but X-S10 was getting such great reviews for the price I went with it. But I keep going back to my X-T3 for most of my photography work.

    I’m intrigued that you now own an X-S10, but continue to make more use of your X-T3. I have a Nikon D800, with a similar design philosophy to the X-S10, and a Panasonic LX100 compact, similar to the X-T3/4 in that it has dedicated dials but little in the way of a handgrip. The LX100 is to put in a jacket pocket when I don’t want to take my D800 kit in a backpack; that’s usually because I don’t expect a photo opportunity anyway, so it gets little use. I value the foolproof dedicated dials for occasional use, but find the D800’s command dial approach more efficient for my mainstream photography. I realize Fujifilm has made some savings to keep the price of the X-S10 down (particularly smaller battery, single card slot, lack of weatherproofing, and inferior EVF). But I’ve long thought the greatest weakness of my D800 is lack of IBIS, although I’ve been able to get the majority of my lenses as a stabilized design. Personally, I think I’d find the X-S10’s handgrip and command dials made it as desirable as the X-T4, and well ahead of any other Fujifilm APS-C bodies.

    If that's true it doesn't say much for the rest.

    He's the best, IMHO, Brian, because he's humorous and, IMHO, tells things like they are :) Of course, there's tonnes of reviewers who
    I've never heard of ;).
