i got my x-t4 about a month ago and have been really enjoying it so far. I dove into some fuji film jpg recipes over the weekend and noticed that shooting in single frame mode really slowed the camera down when using recipes.
What seems to be happening is that after taking the picture the camera screen goes black, says "storing" and shows a little loading icon, after about a second its ready to take the next shot. So it seems as if the camera cant process the data in the background. So there is a "blackout" after taking photo where i cant take another photo.
When using CH or CL or the BKT mode, shooting speed is not noticably slowed down and the jpg processing seems to be done in the background, even between two BKT- Shots there is no delay / processing screen and the camera is snappy as i think its supposed to be.
A friend owns an x-t2 and has no speed issues when using jpg processing + single frame shooting, so i think this might be down to firmware.
Has anyone heard of this, can confirm this, knows whether its a bug or a feature, knows if fuji is working on it, or has even found a solution?

I am thinking to grab a X-E3 by this year Christmas but is it worth to buy new E3 or wait for the successor?
Some rumours saying that E3 will not receive an update but I like its weight and size as it matching to they style I shoot (I am mainly on street photography).
new X-Pro 2 & 3 is way out of my budget, so it is tough for me to consider the two.
Hi. My lovely X-E3 has a problem. Sometimes when I press the shutter (fully press it, to take a photo!) there is a significant delay before the shutter fires. A delay of around 1.5 seconds. Enough to miss the shot, should my subject happen to be on the move. I am using mostly the 18mm f/2. I have tested the lens on a borrowed X-Pro1 and it works 100% - so it's not the lens.
I think the problem happens around 25% of the time, enough to be very annoying.
Has anyone else experienced something like this before? If so, what did you do about it? Thanks.
Have used both Nissin Di700 and the Godox ad200, both with a wireless trigger mounted on the camera hot shoe.
After seeing the much greater power. better value for the $ and adaptability of the Godox, I have sold the Nissin.
Highly recommend getting the optional Godox round head and extension cable which just plug onto and replace the standard fresnel rectangular head. Godox also make some very good magnetic accessories for the round head (filters, snoot, grid pattern / directional acc
So things are getting better for some reason since the update. I will say, this update I had a freshly formatted sd card in, and a fresh battery. The first firmware update I didn’t have a card in yet, the phone prompted it and I just clicked. Maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe not.
Either way. I did the firmware update last week and over the weekend got about 1200 pictures and a few hours of 4k 60/24 in f-log, long gop. So here’s all the quirks I can think of since the last update
