The X-E4 brings the best of what X Series products have to offer and combines them into a single camera that is the perfect storytelling tool for everyday photographers, videographers, and content creators that want results they can be proud of.
This lightweight, compact camera features the same 26.1-megapixel, X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor, 0.02-sec autofocus, and fantastic colour science that can be found in the professional X Series cameras, but makes these features easily accessible to image-makers of all levels. Outstanding image quality, wide dynamic range, and superb low-light performance combined with simple controls, advanced Face and Eye Detection, and a 180° tilting LCD touchscreen will make this camera a joy to use, so regardless if it is being used to make professional-quality photos, 4K/30p video or super-slow motion, Full HD/240p footage, X-E4 will make the experience quick, easy, and fun for anyone that crosses its path.
A sophisticated, beautiful design housed in X Series lightest and smallest camera body
At 364g (.80lb) and measuring 121.3mm x 72.9mm x 32.7mm (4.77in x 2.87in x 1.28in), X-E4 is the most compact interchangeable-lens camera using the 4th generation sensor and processor. To maintain its slim and sleek design, a rear tilting LCD screen has also been carefully designed to ensure the body remains as thin and portable as possible.
The camera’s compact design is influenced by the design of classic film cameras. Both the front and rear grips are flat to give it a classic aesthetic, while the top plate of the camera body is carefully moulded with extreme precision from magnesium that is polished for a beautifully classic appearance.
Diverse functions and easy operation
The rear tilting monitor can be flipped upward and forward-facing up to 180 degrees, which can accommodate a wide variety of compositions, from high to low angle, as well as selfies and vlog-style videos.
The top panel includes a Shutter Speed dial (S.S. Dial) that can be set manually or switched to Program Mode (P) if fully automatic functionality is required.
Controls have also been concentrated to front-side dials to give extra thumb space for added in-hand comfort
Using the state-of-the-art 26.1MP “X-Trans™ CMOS 4” sensor and the high-speed image processing engine “X-Processor 4” to provide incredibly fast autofocus, E-X4 uses phase-detection autofocus points across almost 100% of the sensor to acquire focus in as fast as 0.02 seconds. It is also able to track moving subjects with an advanced AF-tracking algorithm so that it is ready to make images at just the right moment.
X-E4 also includes the latest Face and Eye detection technology to track subjects accurately, even in luminance levels as low as -7.0EV*. Acquire focus on a subject, even in near darkness, broadening the possibility of when images can be made.

Extensive video-recording functions
X-E4 oversamples 6k footage to record 4K/30P 4:2:0 8-bit video to internal media, or 4K/30P 4:2:2 10-bit video via its HDMI port.
The camera can also deliver high-speed full-HD video at 240fps, which can be used to replay fast-moving subjects up to 10x slower compared to footage recorded at 24fps.
Variety of film simulations
A total of 18 film simulations are available, including Velvia, which is characterized by highly saturated colours and crisp gradation, and ETERNA Bleach Bypass, which reproduces a traditional dark-room processing technique to create unique images with low saturation and high contrast.
Fujifilm 27mm f2.8 R WR XF
The XF27mm F2.8 is a thin, “pancake-style” prime lens, with a focal length of 27mm, which provides image makers with a natural field of view that is close to what the human eye sees, making it extremely suitable for a diverse range of styles from everyday general use to portraiture, street, and landscape photography.
With its compact design, image-makers may find themselves using the lens frequently as a walkaround lens because of its exceptional portability, outstanding image quality, and weather-resistant features.
Aperture ring with F-stop scale and A-Position lock
XF27mmF2.8 now features an aperture ring with an F-stop scale, so that users can visually check and adjust their aperture settings without needing to look at the camera’s screen or through its viewfinder. The aperture ring also features the A (Auto) Position Lock*1, which locks the lens into the A-Position to prevent unintentional adjustments to the lens’s aperture while it is being used.
*Rotating the aperture ring from f16 to the A-Position locks the ring, and rotating the ring from the A-Position to f16 while holding down the Lock Release button disengages the lock.
Weather-Resistance has been applied at seven locations on the lens to protect against water and dust and allow it to fully operate in temperatures down to -10°C (14°F).
Lens hood included
In addition to the standard lens cap, XF27mmF2.8 comes packaged with a dome-shaped lens hood (LH-XF27) and a hood cap (LHCP-27) to provide options to protect the lens and accommodate users that prefer using low-profile hoods over lens caps because of their convenience.
Thin and lightweight design combined with advanced image quality
Since the diameter of the image circle needed to cover an APS-C sensor (28.4mm) is so close in dimension to XF27mmF2.8’s focal length, it is possible to design an incredibly compact lens that produces high-quality images.
Despite its compact size, the lens consists of seven lens elements in five groups, including one aspherical element, which mitigates spherical aberration, field curvature, and distortion. This allows XF27mmF2.8 to deliver advanced image resolution, even when it is used at its widest apertures.
XF27mmF2.8 features a high-torque DC motor to enable fast and accurate AF, while the front lens group of five lens elements effectively maintains image quality by minimizing aberrations that may occur when the lens is used for close-ups or with subjects that are further away.
One of the thinnest and lightest XF lenses in the collection, XF27mmF2.8 R WR measures just 62mm (2.4in) in diameter and is only 23mm (0.9in) long. The lens is very lightweight at approximately 84g (2.9oz), which makes it an ideal choice for assignments where compactness and overall size are a concern.
