Fujifilm just introduced the X-E4, a new compact mirrorless camera with a classic rangefinder style. The new Fujifilm X-E4, which is the follow-up to the X-E3 from 2017, features the same 26.1-megapixel X-Trans CMOS sensor, 0.02 second autofocus, and advanced color science found the company’s professional-level X Series cameras, Fujifilm said in a press announcement this morning.

Weighing just .8 pounds and measuring 4.77 x 2.87 x 1.28 inches, the X-E4 is the most compact interchangeable lens camera in Fujifilm’s X Series of cameras. While it has some pro features, the Fujifilm X-E4 is aimed at advanced amateurs and photo enthusiasts and comes with a rear LCD that can flip 180 degrees. The X-E4 will go on sale in March 2021 for $849.
