So when Fujifilm & the guys at London Camera Exchange asked us to spend some time with the Fujifilm XT4, we were of course excited. Having previously tested the camera, it’s one I know is more than just capable for video, but was actually one of my favourite filmmaking cameras of 2020.
But rather than produce a straight review for this, what we wanted to do is actually get to use it in the field, producing a real life commercial video and to walk you through the steps of using this camera and showing it’s true capabilities.
The scenario is a simple one, we have Cosmic a well established artist producing a massive 8x4ft mural in our new post-production studio and will be creating and documenting his process with the Fujifilm XT4. So lets get to our set up, and get started with the shoot.
Of course you could use this cage for mounting anything else you desire, from Microphones right through to something like a HDMI wifi transmitter.The key with it, is that versatility it brings to you on set.
So now we’re into the shoot it makes a lot of sense to talk through some of the settings I’m using here. And whilst we’re talking about colours and file formats it makes sense here to talk through working in F-Log, for those that want the full post-production flatness. Getting to F-Log is really straight forward in the menu system under the first Movie setting pages. For those who prefer not work with raw video you do of course have access to the stunning Fuji Picture profiles and film simulations. Personally I’m a big fan of the Eterna picture profile, and love the results this gives in most conditions.
Now of course in most scenarios with video you do tend to be shooting with a tripod or some other form of stabilisation. But one of the best features for me with the Fujifilm X-T4 is it’s incredible image stabilisation, which for video not only allows for handheld shooting, but almost encourages it.
The world of modern video wouldn’t be complete without some of that running through treacle slow motion. And as would now expect the XT-4 doesn’t disappoint here.
So this was my second stint working using the Fuji X-T4 and happily it has been one of the few cameras I’ve ever used that has exceeded my initial, excited first impressions. Hands down for me this is the best Mirrorless APS-C sized camera for video currently on the market, and beyond all the hyperbole it’s just easy to use and delivers a stunning image.
