Hi everyone. I'm a new proud owner of a Fuji Xt4 but I'm having some issues and I would like to get your help to understand if I'm paranoid or I have to replace my camera since I can still do it. Here my main issues :

1. Since the unboxing and even after upgrading both body and lens firmware I noticed that my camera start to gets warm after few minutes navigating in the menus or taking few photos. After 5 minutes the camera start to get warm on the bottom left side (opposite side of the battery) and on the LCD screen area.  I also tried to stress the camera with 4k 60fps video and after 10 minutes the camera gets really warm. Fuji says that this is normal as the body is designed to dissipate in this way. However, some Xt4 users I asked seem don't have same issue in photo or menu scrolling mode saying it never happened to them in photo mode. I appreciate it can be subjective feeling but I really don't get if it is normal or not. 

2. I was setting my camera last night  when I started notice a fan like noise coming from the body. It is very clear if you put your hears over the body. I thought it was the Ibis and I disabled it but nothing changes. I also have the 35mm f2 on which is not stabilized. 

Both issues scare me because I would like to use this camera also for the video capability. Did you experience anything like that? Am I paranoid or it is worth to send the camera back for a replacement? 

I love the camera and the feeling it provides while shooting so I just want to be sure it is working properly. 

Thank you in advance

Kind regards 

F

Hi F, welcome to the forum. Good news first: the fanlike noise you hear is the IBIS, when disabled the system is still engaged to keep the sensor fixed on the right place. No worries about this.

The warming in photo mode should not happen, I would send the camera back to get a replacement.

Hope this helps.

    • I don’t have it as I went for the literal bag of primes (16, 23, 35 & 50) but the XF 16-55 f2.8 is well regarded as a “bagful of primes”. 16mm is a 24mm equivalent on the wide end and 55mm is close to an 85mm equivalent. F2.8 gives a good level subject separation/bokeh. Not small or light but plenty of folks sing it’s praises. Dave
    • Not really, unless you want to limit yourself a lot on the image quality. For portraits I would recommend at least an 85mm F/1.4 lens. For landscape photography it depends on whether you want to make panoramas and then the question is which focal length or image effect you want to achieve. There is a lack of more precise information on your part.
    • Does the aperture ring have whole, half or a third gradations?
    • Hi When I was researching impressions of the new Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 R LM WR and how it pairs with different bodies I found very little info and/or images of the lens together with an X-E4 body. I therefore figured I should make a post about it so other people researching the same thing can find these picture and info. I have attached some pictures showcasing the lens on my X-E4 body. One very interesting/sad thing to note is that if the aperture ring is left at the 1.4 mark the auto lock knob/button will actually touch the flat surface on which the camera is placed which is not ideal. This is however not an issue when having the lens hood mounted, if a Peak Design style screw mount is attached or if moving the aperture ring to the 2.0 mark. All these pictures are taken with my phone so they are not really of stellar quality but are probably useful anyway  My overall impression of the lens thus far is really good, it produces very sharp images even fully open. It balances quite well with the X-E4; when actually shooting it feels really good but when carrying it around it is a bit front heavy. I found that there is a dramatic change in carrying comfort if the strap is mounted on the body in a diagonal fashion so to speak, i.e. with one anchor at either side of the body and one at the bottom screw mount. Using this configuration really offsets the balance point when carrying your camera diagonally, sling style.   Also, this is my first post at the forum so ... Hi all
