The X-T1 uses the same 16.3 megapixel X-Trans CMOS II sensor as the X-E2. The unique pixel array leaves Fujifilm confident that it can do without an optical low-pass filter, without introducing moiré and false color.
The X-T1 is the first Fujifilm X-series camera to have an ISO dial. Its made of machined aluminum and feels solid.

A lock at the center of the dial must be held down in order to turn the dial.
The shutter speed dial feels just as solid as the ISO dial, though some may feel that rotating it is a bit of a stretch when holding the camera. While there's a lock on this dial as well, it's only needed to move out of the 'Auto' position.
The View Mode button switches between the LCD and EVF, and also offers an 'EVF only + eye sensor' option which turns the viewfinder off when not in use.
On the front of the camera, you'll find the front dial, AF-assist lamp, and a customizable Fn1 button. The front dial can be used for setting the aperture with XC lenses or fine-tuning the shutter speed (you can select which in the menu), navigating menus and moving through images in playback mode.

As you'd expect, there's also a rear dial, used for many of the same things, plus playback zoom.
Also on the front panel is a switch for moving between single, continuous, and manual focus.

At the M setting, you can use the AF-L button on the back of the camera for autofocus. Fujifilm has finally added a visual on-screen focus confirmation in this mode, too.
The X-T1 has a PC sync socket on the front of the camera, for connection to studio strobes.
Under a rubber cover you'll find the camera's mic/remote, mini HDMI, and micro USB ports.

The optional RR-90 wired remote can be plugged into the USB port if you don't want to use the smartphone app. Alternatively the mic socket can accept Canon- and Pentax- compatible third party wired remotes.
Under a rather flimsy plastic door is the camera's single SD card slot.

The X-T1 is the first digital camera to support the super-fast (and expensive) UHS-II standard, according to Fujifilm.
On the bottom of the camera is the battery compartment, with the tripod mount next door (and slightly off-center from the lens). Fujifilm says that the included NP-W126 battery, rated at 350 shots per charge by CIPA standards.

If you need more battery life, don't forget that there's an optional grip available for the X-T1, which can take another battery to give you 700 shots before needing to swap.
