Fujifilm X-T4: The Best APS-C Mirrorless Camera

Chris and Jordan (DPReview) compared four current flagship APS-C mirrorless cameras: Sony A6600 (AmazonB&H/ Adorama) , Fujifilm X-T4 (Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama), Canon EOS M6 Mark II (AmazonB&H/ Adorama) and Nikon Z 50 (Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama).


  • 1st place: Fujifilm X-4: Good grip and great dial mounting. The front and rear dials can be used like a single-lens reflex camera, making it versatile.
  • 2nd place: Nikon Z50: The grip is comfortable, not cramped. The two dials are also great and all the controls make sense.
  • 3rd place: Canon  EOS M6 II: The operation part is too small to operate. The grip is cramped.
  • 4th place : Sony A6600: The grip is cramped. Difficult to dial. The menu has many points to improve.


  • 1st place: Fujifilm  X-T4: 1.62 million dots, vari-angle, the most high-spec monitor with a touch panel.
  • 2nd place: Nikon  Z50: The performance of the monitor is the same as EOS, but I like the tilt monitor that supports selfies, so I put it up. However, when attached to a tripod, the monitor does not face forward.
  • 3rd place: Canon  EOS M6 II: Touch operation is better than Sony.
  • 4th place : Sony A6600: The number of pixels on the monitor is small. You cannot operate menus or set exposure from the touch panel.


  • 1st place:Sony A6600: AF that leads the class, and the tracking of moving objects and the recognition of eyes and faces are really wonderful.
  • 2nd place: Canon EOS M6 II: I was very impressed with the tracking of moving objects. The eye and face recognition works well, making it comfortable for any application.
  • 3rd place: Fujifilm X-T4: Significantly evolved, especially pupil AF and face recognition, but moving object tracking is a little inconsistent and bites poorly.
  • 4th place : Nikon Z50: AF is good and it tracks moving objects well, but when it gets dark, AF becomes inconsistent, so it is 4th place.

image quality

  • 1st place: Fujifilm  X-T4: High image quality, less distortion of the rolling shutter, and practical use of electronic shutters. JPEG and film simulation are great.
  • 2nd place Canon EOS M6 II: IBIS is not installed, but it has the advantage of the sensor.
  • 3rd place Sony A6600: IBIS contributes greatly to image quality, but it is 3rd place because the sensor is old and the rolling shutter performance is very poor (the distortion of the moving object is large).
  • 4th place: Nikon Z50: The sensor is out of date. It is a problem that IBIS is not installed.

Below is the final conclusion:

  • 1st place:  Fujifilm X-T4: The most high-spec professional camera with lenses. The design is also excellent.
  • 2nd place:  Sony α6600: A wide variety of lenses including third parties can be used. It’s a high-performance camera that is strong against movies, but the body design is that of an entry-level camera, and I want you to improve ergonomics.
  • 3rd place: Canon EOS M6 II: It is a high-speed continuous shooting machine with high-speed AF, and although it has more lenses than the Z50 and can use Sigma’s single focus lens, it feels like it is not as powerful as the full size as Nikon.
  • 4th place: Nikon  Z50: It’s a camera that you can enjoy using, but there are few APS-C dedicated lenses, and if you use a full-size lens, there is a cheap Z5.
