I tried the panorama functionality of the XT4 last weekend and i was quite disappointed.
1. the only really important thing about panoramas is that every picture is shot with the same settings. as you can see in the attached file, this doesn't happen and you get a striped picture that is completely useless.
2. even if the camera would handle the exposure correctly, the file is reduced to a bare minimum ... like 8 MB... i know that this process is a lot for the processor in the camera but the result is absolutely disappointing.
What i actually don't get, is why the panorama functionality gets a quick access if it's not worth to be implemented corrently.

Here is my first possibly only Fujifilm experience:
Here is what I found wrong with the one I got. I hope it was just a bad model. 1) In my RAW file, there was a 1/4 inch black bar going down the side. Taking away form the complete photo. I was using Sandisk. 2) The video was too shaken. It was horrible. I was just sitting on the couch testing it. 3) The EV dial failed to work. I think they all did. What are they there for if you can not use them? Yes I unlocked them. 4) OMG the noise in the images... Horrible... I was horrified at how bad the camera was. I really had high hopes, only to be scattered into the winds... It was the first and very horrible experience I had with Fujifilm. I may, may not give it another chance. But it will be a few years minimal. Hopefully they fix it by then. I'm glad I got my money back. Glad I was able to get my Nikon back as well. I traded everything Nikon I had to get the XT4. It was a lot. And yes, I did in camera format the SDXC cards.
I want the CEOs, bosses, ECT... of Fujifilm IN JAPAN to see and read this. They made a horrible product. At least in my case. I never thought this could happen. Shameful...
Does anyone know with the current economy due to the pandemic if sales for cameras will go down?
I find it a bit odd that fujifilm ended their sales on March, right in the middle of the crisis (Can they really afford to only offer premium prices)?
Good morning everyone,
I'm a Fuji lover since the day they came up with that old fashioned looking xpro - what a great story they have built to become a solid challenger to the Canon, Nikon & Sony of this world.
I'm using my XT3 primarily for video creation and am looking at switching to the XT4, due to the stabilization and therefore capacity to film handheld in some situations. I'm also considering switching from the standard lens kit (18-55 f2.8-4) to the 16-55 f2.8, which however doesn't have built in stab.
My question: (i) from what the IBIS can do on other cameras (XH1?), do you expect it can offset the lack of lens stab?, (ii) I've read somewhere that should you mount your fuji on a DJI Ronin stabilizer and connect it, you may lose the in camera stabilization - is this fake or real?
thanks a lot for your help (from Paris, France !)
If the message coming up every time doesn't grind you down, you can still use the older battery but it will wear down faster, certainly under intensive use. I've not measured the number of shots from each when just taking single shots.
