Fujifilm X-E4 review

The Fujifilm X-E4 is the latest X-E series rangefinder-style mirrorless camera from Fujifilm. It's sleek, compact and we rather like it

Digital Camera World Verdict

While its small size and design doesn’t make it quite as versatile as a camera like the X-T4, the Fujifilm X-E4 is capable of producing the same quality images and it’s easy to carry everywhere. It would be ideal as a travel camera with Fujifilm's smaller prime lenses or zooms.

The Fujifilm X-E4 is the company's most compact interchangeable lens camera with the 26.1Mp X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 processing engine. As the latest in the X-E series of mirrorless cameras, it has a rectangular rangefinder-like design rather than the mini DSLR-styling of the X-T series. It's for enthusiasts who value a classic, compact design over all the bells and whistles of the X-S10 and X-T4.
