Introducing the Hasselblad X1D

We are officially taking pre-orders for the new Hasselblad X1D, the world’s first mirrorless digital medium format camera!  It weighs in at half the weight of a conventional medium format camera and is crafted of high-quality, durable materials. Weather and dust sealed, it will stand up to any difficult weather situation. It’s mirrorless body design and central lens shutter allow shooting noise to be kept very low. It features a 50MP sensor but also boasts a square (yes, square) 39MP capture and XPan panoramic format!

Some highlights of the new Hasselblad X1D include:

  • Dual card slots for maximum storage options
  • USB 3.0 Type-C Connector for fast transfer rates
  • Mini HDMI and audio I/O ports, great display options on a larger monitor
  • Wi-Fi and GPS that can be viewed on an iOS device, remote camera controls, and geotagging. Phocus software package will link your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to your X1D. 
  • The X1D features a 3″ high-resolution rear touch display. 

  • A 2.36 MP high-resolution electronic viewfinder, displays a high refresh rate, wide contrast of range 230:1. The viewfinder displays a range of information such as aperture, shutter speed, shots remaining, and exposure level. The dial allows the user to customise the camera settings.
  • The X1D will include the tried and tested 50MP CMOS sensor
  • The X System Lenses will work on the X1D. Additionally, an adapter is available to allow the mounting of HC and HCD lenses.
