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...

I wonder why your opinion is so vastly different from the opinion of thousands of other Fujifilm users, most of whom have used other major brands and are in a good position to compare. Also, many of them are accomplished photographers and they are knowledgable and in a good position to offer relevant statements. Judging from your other posts, your experience and expertise is rather limited, I would say on a novice level, yet you do not hesitate to voice your opinions very loudly, do you.

Irrelevant.  A bad product is a bad product.  By the way, I have over 10 years shooting photos.

No, the product is bad FOR YOU. Others who have tried it loved it and others have not. There is no perfect product for everyone.

You give so few details about the problems that it's hard to take the post seriously. Also, i had to read through all of it to figure out what you're complaining about. 

And why would CEOs read a random internet post about a (maybe but unlikely) faulty unit?

Then buy something different. There are enough choices.

You don't like Fujifilm, and you don't like Sandisk (from reading your posts). Then don't buy them.

BTW, ten years is nothing.

What kind of raw converter are you using? The black bar on the right side indicates that the software you use does not support X-T4.

I was not using any converter(s).  Just the lens, and camera body.  To put the RAW files on my MacBook Pro, I use the image capture.  That is how most put the images onto the computer/laptop.

I spoke to Ken Wheeler, and he suggested that through process of elimination, the SD Card was too slow.

Image Capture transfers image from SD card to your computer. What do you use to view the image (where you see the black bar)?

I used photos, and it was on the right edge.  parts of it looked like it had hair/fine lines sticking out.  First I usually use photos, do the base edit, then use Affinity Photo for the spot removal if needed.

Photos does not yet have X-T4 support.

You would need to use a RAW converter with X-T4 support, like Capture One Express for Fuji (which is a free download).

      Hi!
      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.

      For those who have the XT4, and don't shoot video, I'm wondering what you think about the new video-centric features like the stills/movie dial and the flip screen.  
      I'm using an XT2 for studio (food/product) photography plus general use.
      I'm still not sure how I feel about the flip screen. I can see it being an advantage for tripod shooting but otherwise I see it as getting in the way of anything else. 
      The new stills/movie dial is incredibly bothersome to me. They took away a feature I used all the time and replaced it with something I will never use. 
      Also, I have to wonder why they decided to put all this video stuff in the XT line instead of the XH line. They already had one camera geared towards stills and another towards hybrid shooters. Why not beef up the XH for video and improve on stills features (and possibly remove video features) for the XT? 
      Here's the thing, I'm fine with skipping this generation and waiting for the XT5 but I feel like there's a gamble they'll move more towards video and alienate those who only shoot stills. If I'm thinking ahead, I'm a little concerned that I should start looking at other platforms in a couple years. This is going to prevent me from buying any new Fuji lenses if I think I might switch.

      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 !)
