Hassie-loving lads and lassies, rejoice. The Swedish camera designer has an updated mirrorless medium-format digital to offer, and it’s tailor-made for professional and serious amateur artists.
Hasselblad’s new X1D II 50C builds upon the X1D platform introduced in 2016, but bests it, especially for portraiture. The revised model features a 50-megapixel CMOS sensor complete with advanced Natural Colour Solution tech, providing more natural tones.
The X1D II also features a higher-quality 3.6-inch touchscreen panel, and an OLED viewfinder with its 3.69 million-dot resolution and 0.87x magnification. Additionally, photogs are now able to easily transfer 16-bit RAW and full resolution JPEGs to an iPad running the Phocus Mobile 2 app.
The X1D II is available for $5,750, but buyers may want to extend their investment another $5K with the X System prime lens, which will be available in October of this year.
