Fujifilm X-T4: what's its stabilization worth?

Unless you’re not interested by what’s new in the photography world, you probably heard about the Fujifilm X-T4.
Like many photographers, I’m especially interested in its new stabilization system. When shooting with the X-T4, you can enable IBIS (In-Body Image Stabilization), OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and DIS (Digital Image Stabilization).
When I read about this, I was excited. To me, it meant that I could shoot videos without a gimbal and handheld sharp photos in low light!
The camera is planned to be released in April 2020. Until I can test it for myself, I watched some reviews by popular YouTube photography channels. I’m listing some of them below, in no particular order.

1. Matt Day: 240fps & IBIS?! Fuji X-T4 FIRST LOOK!

A technical review with quick shots, showcasing stabilization and slow motion clips, straight out of camera.

2. Patrick Tomasso: Low light handheld with the Fuji X-T4! | 4K Footage Samples

A more artistic review, with beautiful footages in low light. Patrick noticed some jittering with the stabilization. Hopefully, Fujifilm should quickly fix that with firmware updates, as they usually do.

3. Vistek: Almost Perfect - Fujifilm X-T4 real shoot review

Probably the best I’ve seen. Those guys take the camera on a real world project and give us their profesionnal insight, positive or negative.

This is a camera I’ll buy at some point, because as everyone seems to agree, it’s almost perfect. But I’m curious to see what Fujifilm planned for the X-T40. Will it get all this stabilization / video goodness? Or will they keep that for higher end cameras? Time will tell.

Read the official press release to learn more about the Fujifilm X-T4, because there’s a lot of new features to know about. You should also read the review from Jonas Rask, who’s also the person responsible for almost every official product shot.
