First Look: Hasselblad X1D-50c Mirrorless Medium Format Camera

Hasselblad recently announced their new mirrorless camera with medium format sensor (43.8 × 32.9mm) — Hasselblad X1D. It’s the world’s first mirrorless medium format camera. Remarkably they put 50MP CMOS sensor into a relatively small body, smaller than most full frame 35mm cameras. Let’s take a closer look to this groundbreaking camera with real hands-on experience.

Obviously Hasselblad made camera mirrorless to achieve such small dimensions.

Sensor can produce 16-bit images with dynamic range up to 14 stops. The ISO range is 100 — 25600.

On the minimalistic back we can see large 3.0 inch TFT display and few buttons. The camera boasts an XGA electronic viewfinder for bright, crisp viewing.

Shutter speed range of 60 minutes to 1/2000th second — with flash synchronisation at all speeds.

Hasselblad also announced new lineup of XCD lenses: Hasselblad XCD 45mm f/3.5 Lens and Hasselblad XCD 90mm f/3.2 Lens

Though H lenses can be used with X1D by means of an optional adapter.

Original orange button came from H6D, allowing to identify continuity in Hasselblad products.

Hasselblad X1D will come with Li-ion battery (7.2 VDC/3200 mAh). There’s no information about how many shots camera can produce from a single charge.

There are dual SD card slots, mini HDMI output, USB 3.0 (5 Gbit/s) Type-C connector, audio In/Out sockets.

The camera will be available for $8,995. The 45mm and 90mm lenses will cost $2,295 and $2,695, respectively. Shipments starts in August.

It will be interesting to see how Hasselblad X1D will create an impact on the market with their new system.
