One of the rumors surrounding the upcoming launch of Fujifilm’s next flagship camera, the Fujifilm X-T4, is that it could be adopting a feature from the Fujifilm X-H1. This comes in the form of in-body image stabilization where photographers will no longer need to seek out specific lenses with the feature.
However, according to a new report from Fuji Rumors, the X-T4 could be one heck of a stabilized beast because they are now claiming that the camera will also come with digital image stabilization. While it might sound like the features are working against each other, the report claims that it will play nicely with both in-body image stabilization as well as optical image stabilization.
This means that unless you’re shaking and moving the camera around a lot, in theory it would be near impossible to get a blurry or shaky photo with the camera. In case you’re unfamiliar, in-body image stabilization relies on actual physical hardware that tries to keep your camera’s sensor as steady as possible.
Digital image stabilization, as the name implies, is software driven, which we’ve seen used before in lower-end smartphones. However, if the rumors are true, it seems that the X-T4 could be using a combination of both. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but the X-T4 is said to be announced at the end of February, so we should have more details next week.
