The X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition uses a unique three-layer coating process for a stunning, highly resilient, finish. Three coats are applied to the camera body, as follows:
First coat: After performing antioxidant treatment on the magnesium body, a matte black undercoat (primer) is applied. This deepens the tones, making the highlights stand out.
Second coat: Thin coats of ultra-fine paint particles are layered using computer controlled Thin-film Multilayer Coating Technology to give a Graphite Silver coat while rotating the body at high speed. This gives a smooth finish and luxurious shine.
Third coat: A clear coat for a deep gloss finish. By adding a small amount of black to the colorless and transparent clear coating, the color tint alters subtly depending on how the light hits the body, emphasizing the camera’s shape and form.
