An unrivaled merge of form and function – The X2D 100C establishes itself as Hasselblad’s flagship mirrorless medium format camera. A 100-megapixel CMOS sensor and advancements in image quality, focusing, stabilization, responsiveness, and storage, are built into the iconic Scandinavian design. The X2D 100C combines groundbreaking engineering with a craftsman’s touch.

Product Information

100MP - Endless Color and Detail

Utilizing a 100-megapixel medium format back-side illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor with a native ISO of 64, the X2D 100C captures life in vivid color and exquisite detail. Over 281 trillion colors are represented with the 16-bit color depth. This immense dimension of color paired with 15 stops of dynamic range allows the X2D 100C to capture the subtle intricacies of highlights and shadows as they are seen in the natural world.


PDAF for Fast and Accurate Focusing 

X2D 100C utilizes Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) to capture fleeting moments in stunning clarity. 294 PDAF zones spread over the 100-megapixel sensor surface provide swift and accurate focusing at the press of a button.


IBIS - Keep Moments Sharp 

The X2D 100C features 5-axis 7-stop in-body image stabilization (IBIS) to assist in capturing crisp handheld shots. To better control the size and weight of the X2D 100C, Hasselblad has built the most compact medium format IBIS solution on the market. 3 It meets the stringent requirements a 100-megapixel medium format sensor has for stabilization while ensuring the lightweight and portability of the camera.


  • The Creation of Hasselblad’s Unique IBIS System

A 100MP medium format sensor brings not only rich details but also rigorous requirements for in-body stabilization. To keep the stabilization ability high but the size and weight low, Hasselblad had to develop its own custom stabilization solution.


  • Compact Stabilisation Structure

Adding a stabilization structure while ensuring the camera remains lightweight and portable was a challenging task. After hundreds of experiments and design iterations, Hasselblad engineers managed to develop an ultra-small voice coil motor. Hall sensors were placed inside the motor, further reducing the size of the system. This development made the front of the IBIS system approximately 30% 3 smaller than that of similar products and allowed the new IBIS system to fit within the compact X2D 100C camera body.


  • Precise and Efficient Stabilisation

Control and accuracy were of the utmost importance to the development team. To reach a crisp resolution of 100MP, Hasselblad engineers conducted joint debugging of the image sensor and stabilization structure. With more than six months of effort, the X2D 100C IBIS system achieved a pixel-level calibration up to the highest Hasselblad standard. Camera movements by just 0.1-pixel can be detected and compensated for.


In order to use the X2D 100C in various handheld situations, the stabilization structure uses a high-precision gyroscope and accelerometer able to detect attitude changes of 0.005 degrees. Extensive data on subtle hand movements during the handheld shooting was collected and analyzed from different age groups in order to accurately calibrate the IBIS system for real-life scenarios. To eliminate the influence of temperature changes on performance, Hasselblad engineers optimized the way hall sensors are used within the system to achieve steady shooting in a wide range of operating temperatures. 4

The X2D 100C's precise and efficient 5-axis 7-stop IBIS system allows users to confidently capture handheld 100-megapixel images, and get immense, medium format detail wherever their creative process leads.


Reliable High-Volume Storage Built-In

High-quality imaging demands considerable storage. A first for medium format cameras, 3 the X2D 100C features a built-in 1TB SSD with a write speed up to 2370MB/s, 5 and a read speed up to 2850MB/s. 5 Although ample storage is built-in, additional space can be added using the CFexpress Type B card slot. Thanks to its high-speed storage performance, the X2D 100C is able to continuously shoot 16-bit RAW images in Continuous Drive Mode, providing a stable and reliable continuous shooting experience.


  • Every Display Excels

The 3.6-inch touch display presents a clear image even under strong light and tilts to gradual angles for diverse shooting needs. It supports a resolution of 2.36 million dots, bringing accurate, true-to-life colors to view.


An Enriched Experience 

The X2D 100C boasts faster response times, ensuring important moments are quickly captured.

The Hasselblad User Interface (HUI) is neat and optimized. Featuring intuitive touch control, simply slide and tap to access the most used operations. The X2D 100C is designed to facilitate an effortless flow of the creative process. 


Crafted Elegance 

The X2D 100C body shells are formed from solid blocks of aluminum alloy machined to sleek curves. While rooted in the Scandinavian design of the X System, the X2D 100C evolves with a new dark grey tone. This new color reflects the convergence of light and shadows, subtle mixes that the X2D 100C expertly captures.


High-Speed Transmission for Instant Sharing

The X2D 100C comes with a USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 port that supports a max 10Gbps transmission rate. And a 2.4/5GHz high-speed Wi-Fi connection, 8 enables a faster and more stable transmission with less interference.

Link the X2D 100C with an iPad or iPhone via Wi-Fi, to transmit full-size JPG/RAW images using Phocus Mobile 2. 9 This allows editing and outputting of high-quality RAW images that fully utilize the abilities of HNCS, and enables masterpieces to be created and shared effortlessly outside the studio. 10

PD 3.0 fast charging and third-party PD 3.0 chargers are supported, removing the need to carry multiple charging devices.


New Lenses to Match 

The latest generation of XCD lenses, the XCD 2,5/55V, XCD 2,5/38V, and XCD 2,5/90V, are compact, lightweight, and maintain Hasselblad’s top-class optical performance. A fully upgraded focusing module enables faster and more accurate autofocus. The leaf shutter provides flash synchronization at all speeds and is now even more compact.

Each metal lens features both a focus ring and lens control ring delicately engraved with a Hasselblad “H” logo print. A simple push and pull of the focus ring changes from AF to MF mode, where intuitive scale marks keep focus distance and DOF clear at a glance. The control ring can be customized for quick access to preferred functions, making shooting more convenient and efficient.
