Press Release: Hasselblad Unveils X1D-50c: Medium-Format Mirrorless



Hasselblad introduced the X1D, a medium-format mirrorless camera with a 50MP CMOS sensor. With dust and weather-sealing the X1D isn't afraid to step outside of the studio, and offers a 100-25600 ISO range and is capable of 1080/30p HD video. Its hot shoe is compatible with Nikon Speedlights and the camera can sync with flashes at its maximum shutter speed: 1/2000 sec.

The X1D uses a new lens mount, accepting XCD lenses. Two have been announced: a 45mm f3.5 and a 90mm f3.2, with more to follow 'shortly' including a 30mm around Photokina. An H lens adapter will also be offered to extend support to Hasselblad's existing H lens system.

The X1D offers a 3" 920k-dot touch screen and a built-in XGA electronic viewfinder. Wi-Fi and GPS are built-in, and the camera includes dual SD card slots. The X1D and its battery weigh in at 725g, which Hasselblad points out is half the weight of your typical medium-format camera.


The X1D is priced at $8,995 and can be purchased at B&H Photo and Adorama. A kit with 45mm f3.5 lens will cost $11,290, and bundled with both lenses the X1D will cost $13,985. The XCD 45mm f3.5 (B&H Photo | Adorama) will cost $2,295 separately; the XCD 90mm f3.2 (B&H Photo | Adorama) will cost $2,695. Hasselblad plans to offer demos of the system at the end of July/beginning August, with delivery to customers at the end of August/beginning September.
