Following an antioxidant treatment on the magnesium body, a matte black undercoat (primer) is applied to the X-T1 as a first coat. The black undercoat tightens the colors of the shadowed areas and makes the highlighted areas stand out. Then, the X-T1 body is rotated at a high speed while thin coats of ultra-fine paint particles are layered using a computer controlled “Thin-film Multilayer Coating Technology” for a smooth and luxurious Graphite Silver finish. Finally, the X-T1 is given a clear coat for extra durability and a deep gloss finish that subtly changes its appearance depending on how it is struck by the light.
Along with the new finish, the X-T1 Graphite Silver edition has been upgraded with a new Natural Live View in the EVF that displays images just as the naked eye sees them. With the X-T1 Graphite Silver edition, users can disable the Preview Picture effects from viewfinder image while shooting to display a truly natural image composition just as they would see with an optical viewfinder.
Additionally, the X-T1 is equipped with a high-speed electronic shutter that has a maximum speed of 1/32000 second that can be set in 1/3 steps when using the XF 23mmF1.4 R, XF 35mmF1.4 R, or the XF 56mmF1.2 R lenses. The high speed electronic shutter is also found in the new Fuji X100T.
The X-T1 also features the new Classic Chrome film simulation mode, which is also featured in the new X100T.
The X-T1 Graphic Silver Edition retails for $1499.95 and should be available in November 2014. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
