Taking over as flagship X-series cameras from the highly-acclaimed X-T3, the new Fujifilm X-T4 reaches another level with the addition of builtin image-stabilization. This APS-C mirrorless is built around a 26 megapixels X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor capable of 20 FPS continuous shooting with an electronic shutter. A redesigned mechanical-shutter brings mechanical speeds to 15 FPS, up from 11 FPS on its predecessor. The final significant addition is a builtin HDR mode, for the first time on a Fujifilm mirrorless.

Fujifilm X-T4

An in-depth review of the Fujifilm X-T4 was just published at Neocamera. As with all our full-length reviews, it covers the extensive capabilities of this digital camera, its ergonomics – which despite the similarities to its predecessor are improved in a several ways – its image-quality and performance with an additional section for video features and output. Detailed coverage image-quality with crops from all ISO sensitivities are included as usual.

Uniquely for this review, its entire photography and videography was done in Malta! Be sure to check the review gallery to see how the Fujifilm X-T4 captured this historic island country. It is an incredible place that has been marked by thousands of years of history. See here for more Malta Travel Photography with over half those images captured by the new X-T4.

Canon EOS R5 Review

Ahead of its full in-depth review, Neocamera just published a Preview of the Canon EOR R5, the newest flagship Full-Frame Mirrorless from Canon. This mirrorless takes the RF-system to the next level with a best-in-class 5-axis in-body image-stabilization mechanism that compensates for up to 8-stops of hand-holding. The R5 is built around a ultra-high-resolution 45 MP Dual-Pixel CMOS sensor with Phase-Detection at every pixel. This high-speed sensor is capable of 20 FPS continuous shooting when using an electronic-shutter.

8K Video captures makes its debut on the R5 with 30 FPS output, including 12-bit RAW and 10-bit MPEG-4. This mirrorless can also record 4K Ultra-HD video at up to 120 FPS. This latest mirrorless is brimming with video-centric features and its Dual-Pixel AF II system can focus more smoothly than any other system while recording video.

The Canon EOS R5 is a highly-anticipated mirrorless that has generated a lot of buzz. For this reason, for the first time, Neocamera published a preview of this truly impressive digital camera. The preview covers image-quality with samples at all ISO sensitivities, performance of the IBIS system and an explanation of overheating issues being discussed everywhere.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III

Although flagship products get the most attention, the ones just below often closely matches it and delivers superior value. Among Micro Four-Thirds mirrorless cameras, this is just the case for the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III. Part of the upper-range OM-D series, the E-M5 is designed as a professional-grade model with everything that is expected for this level of camera.

Built around a 20 megapixels Four-Thirds CMOS sensor mounted on a 5-axis image-stabilization system, the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III is designed to perform. Its sensor features 121-Point Phase-Detect AF and is matches with a hybrid shutter that allows 30 FPS continuou shooting at full-resolution. The high-speed output of this sensor is also used to capture Cinema 4K video.

This extremely feature rich mirrorless packs a huge feature set that includes extensive bracketing, focus stacking, builtin HDR, an interval timer and much more in a weatherproof and freezeproof body. Read the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III review to what this camera is capable of.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III

Olympus launched their third-generation professional mirrorless earlier this year with a number of key improvements over its already impressive predecessor. The new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III is built around a 20 megapixels Four-Thirds CMOS sensor mounted on a class-leading 5-axis image-stabilization with 7-stops of efficiency. This ultra-high-speed sensor is paired with a TruePic VIII processor to deliver full-resolution bursts at 30 FPS.

This is a camera that can take on any type of photography in any environment thanks to its IPX1-rated weatherproof body that is freezeproof to -10C too. It offers a huge number of controls, including dual control-dials and an 8-way focus joystick in additional to the standard 4-way controller. The E-M1 Mark III fits dual SDXC memory-card slots, a standard hot-shoe, sync-port, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity.

A detailed review of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III just got published. Follow the previous link to read all about it. Included are demos of Super-Resolution, Live-ND and the builtin image-stabilization system.

Nikon Z50 Review

Nikon originally launched the Z-platform for mirrorless cameras with a pair of Full-Frame models but followed shortly after with their first APS-C offering based on the same wide-diameter Z-mount. This is the third sensor-size Nikon implemented in mirrorless format and first to share a mount, giving the new Nikon Z50 a jump-start by naively supporting existing Z-mount lenses, although APS-C sensors allow more compact lenses while providing image-quality between between Four-Thirds and Full-Frame.

The Nikon Z50 is built around a 20 megapixels BSI-CMOS sensor with a builtin 209-Point Phase-Detect AF system. The camera features a hybrid shutter mechanism capable of 11 FPS continuous shooting and spanning a 1/4000-30s shutter-speed range, plus longer Bulb and Timed exposures. Using a fast processor, this mirrorless can record 4K Ultra-HD video at 30 FPS and 1080p Full-HD at 120 FPS.

To deliver a compact mirrorless with a large lens mount, Nikon omitted both image-stabilization and automated sensor-cleaning in the Z50. While not totally necessary, these missing features are a key differentiation between this camera and other mirrorless. Where this is most problematic is with lenses since native Z-mount lenses are so far designed for cameras with builtin image-stabilization, given that the Z7 and Z6 both feature state-of-the-art 5-axis sensor-shift mechanisms. At the same time, the Z50 manages to offer quite a few controls, including dual control-dials and customizable function buttons in a compact body. There is a modern 2.4 MP 0.39″ EVF with 0.68X magnification, 100% coverage and an Eye-Start Sensor for framing.

Neocamera just published an extensive in-depth review of the Nikon Z50. Read on to learn how this new mirrorless performs and compares. A side-by-side image-quality comparison between the Z50 and a Micro Four-Thirds mirrorless is uniquely included to show the compromise between state-of-the-art mirrorless cameras with these respective sensor-sizes.
