Could the X-T3 find itself displaced by a newer model to be announced next month?
The Fuji rumor mill seems to indicate that, yes, this is exactly what is going to happen and the assumptively named X-T4 will not only provide consumers with an upgrade over the other model but also comes with IBIS.
That’s a big deal because, as Digital Photography School reports, the lack of in-body image stabilization is a big complaint among users of the current X-T3 which is a relatively popular camera otherwise.
Adding this to the fact that this proposed X-T4 would be the second camera, alongside the Fujifilm X-H1, to have that.
Rumors indicate that Fuji will announce the camera on February 4th and then launch it the following month.
What makes this somewhat odd is that it runs a bit ahead of schedule for Fuji’s traditional two-year upgrade cycle.
As far as potential upgrades go, nothing is certain at this point because everything remains in the realm of rumor and conjecture.
Logical expectations of a sensor upgrade, for example, have precedent and the aforementioned IBIS would be a huge deal.
One concern about that is it could add heft and bulk to what is currently a lightweight, small form factor camera.
An upgrade that is showing up on a lot of Internet commenters’ wishlists is the ability of the X-T4 to record 6K video.
