First Outing with the Fuji X-T4

I’ve owned many a Fuji camera, and I can emphatically say that without doubt, the X-T4 is THE best Fuji camera to date! From video, to photo taking, this camera gets it right! The camera feels more solid than all Fuji cameras to date (save the X-H1), has the best IS, the best video features, the best controls, the best image and video output, and is the most responsive. The selfie screen also comes in very handy!

I’ve bought and sold quite a few Fuji lenses also over the years, but I had to repurchase the 16-55mm f/2.8 when I got this camera. The two were made for each other! I’ll definitely need to get our and shoot more with this combo, as well as use it more for video, but with the quarantine / shutdown happening, I just haven’t had the inspiration to shoot much around the house.

We did however get a chance to go to the West Hylebos Wetlands Park (again) yesterday. I’m quite amazed that more people don’t go there. It’s free, it’s open, and it’s nearby. Oh well, good for us! These pictures were mostly shot in the Velvia (a few Provia) mode, with the chrome effects turned to max, I used a polarizer, and edited using Perfectly Clear. The colors are a bit electric, but I like it.
