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 !)
I do not like that it does not have a BSI CMOS at it's core. If you're going to tout enhanced ISO and better light gathering, it really needs to be done on a BSI CMOS. Now the question is do I buy this 'reduced medium' format w/o BSI or do I buy a less expensive full frame with BSI?
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.
