Venerable Swedish photographic equipment firm Hasselblad announced a new medium-format mirrorless digital camera this summer. The model is called the X2D 100C, and its spatial efficiency is a measure of its extraordinary design. It succeeds the X1D, which appeared in two iterations as a 50-megapixel device.
The componentry hiding inside the X2D 100C represents a lot of photographic firepower. At the heart of it is a 100-megapixel back-side illuminated CMOS sensor, which allows for capturing of an extraordinary depth of detail and breadth of color reproduction — 281 trillion colors, in digital terms.
Also onboard the model is Hassie’s Natural Color Solution, which renders digital color in analog terms, as well as Phase Detection Autofocus for fast response and Continuous Drive Mode for 16-bit RAW images. 5-axis 7-stop in-body stabilization, a built-in 1TB SSD storage device, and a CFexpress Type B card slot fill out the fundamentals.
The Hasseblad X2D 100C is priced at $8,199.
