Fujifilm X-E4 Reviews Roundup

By on

Here are the latest Fujifilm X-E4 reviews surfaced on the web. The Fujifilm X-E4 is a rangefinder-style APS-C sensor mirrorless camera that replaces the previous X-E3 model.

The Fujifilm XE4 is a good camera. It’s compact, lightweight and stylish. The minimalist design does include drawbacks in terms of usability.  The X-series camera uses the 4th generation sensor and processor and features the same 26.1MP sensor as seen on the Fuji X-T4.

In terms of its marketing position and pricing, the XE4 sits above the older X-T30 and below the new X-S10 and then the flagship X-T4 / X-Pro3 cameras in the current X-series range. You can see the price information below and later on we’ll jump on the new Fujifilm X-E4 Reviews.

Fujifilm X-E4 Reviews

Conclusion from Dpreview :

The X-E4 is a stylish camera capable of excellent image quality and packed with useful features. It’s the brand’s smallest X-mount offering and a good choice for street, travel, and generalist photographers. It’s also capable of strong video performance, though there’s no in-body stabilization for hand-held shooting. The only thing the X-E4 doesn’t excel at is AF tracking; you’ll find quite a few of its competitors offer better tracking and face/eye detection.

What we like What we don’t like
  • Excellent image quality, pleasing JPEG color
  • Nice classic styling and compact design
  • Strong video feature set with good-quality Full HD and 4K video
  • The tilting touch screen is highly-responsive
  • Can use USB-C port for headphones with included dongle
  • In-camera charging
  • Good battery life
  • Autofocus tracking performance lags behind the competition
  • No animal detection AF mode
  • We miss having a rear dial and focus mode selector (like on X-E3)
  • More custom buttons would be nice
  • The camera is slippery without accessory grip
  • No in-body stabilization
  • No weather-sealing

From PhotographyBlog review :

The small size and low weight of the X-E4, coupled with not having a hand-grip of any kind, make it best suited to being paired with Fuji’s smaller lenses, like their excellent range of fast primes, rather than the heavier zooms and telephoto lenses.

That isn’t to say that you should entirely ignore the new XE4, more that you should be aware of the limitations that have been newly introduced.

Whilst existing X-E3 owners who had hoped to upgrade to the latest tech in the same proven body may feel somewhat disgruntled by the handling changes that Fuji have made, the XE4 is still a mid-range camera with a high-end fit and finish that provides the very best imaging technology that Fujifilm currently offer – for those three key reasons alone, it’s well worth considering.

Conclusion from 5050travelog :

It felt as if a younger brother to my X-Pro2 had landed on my doorstep when I first received the X-E4. A younger sibling with fresh new legs, full of energy, speedy tech under the hood but also more settings to be fiddled with.

But once the settings were in place I could take advantage of the newer processor and sensor in a compact package and especially looked forward to having the Classic Neg. film simulation at my fingertips.

While I ended up trading up to the X-Pro3 please do not let this fact discourage you from trying out an X-E4. It is an affordable package, you get a lot of punch for your dollar, and image quality will be as good as it gets for the APS-C-based X-Series.

Key specifications:

  • 26MP APS-C sensor with X-Trans color filter array
  • 3.0″ tilting touchscreen with 1.62M dots (can tilt up 180 degrees)
