The special edition Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver is a weather-resistant, premium, interchangeable lens camera with a large OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF) that delivers an instant image preview. The X-T1 GS also includes the latest generation 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor and the fast autofocus of 0.08 seconds.
The camera features a triple layer coating to give it a unique and durable fit and finish. 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 colours 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 for a smooth and luxurious 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.
The camera has been upgraded with a new natural live view in the EVF that displays images just as the naked eye sees them. 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.
This edition is equipped with a high-speed electronic shutter that has a maximum speed of 1/32000 sec. that can be set in 1/3 steps when using the Fujinon XF 23 mm f/1.4 R, XF 35 mm f/1.4 R, or the XF 56 mm f/1.2 R lenses. Additionally, the mechanical shutter will not operate when any speed for the electronic shutter is selected for a completely silent shooting experience.
The X-T1 Graphite Silver edition ships with the new ‘Classic Chrome’ film simulation mode, which delivers muted tones and deep colour reproduction.
The Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver edition body will be available in late November for $1,499.99.
The current black model remains in the lineup.
