Overview
  • 1Description

The Hasselblad XPan II is a unique camera that takes great 35 mm shots with the famous Hasselblad quality and full medium format panorama pictures on the same roll of 35mm film. The XPan II's panorama shots have medium format quality with an image width equal to that of shots produced by a 6x7 medium format camera.

Dual Format
Building upon the success of the original XPan, the unique dual format XPan II produces high quality panorama or standard format images on regular 35mm film. The two formats can be mixed in any order on the same roll of film. With the introduction of XPan II the camera is further improved to make it simpler to operate yet even more advanced for different customer preferences

The 24 x 65mm panorama format, together with the high quality XPan lenses (focal lengths 30mm, 45mm (standard lens) and 90mm) brings medium format image quality to 35mm film. The XPan II features a wide range of convenient, user-friendly features such as automated film loading film transport, TTL exposure metering, and single or continuous exposure.

The shutter release can be triggered by button, mechanically, via a dedicated electrical remote cable, or self-timer. And, being a rangefinder camera, the Xpan II is very silent in operation. Switching between formats is easily done with the simple twist of a knob. When changing format the camera automatically adjusts the film position to assure consistent film spacing and to avoid film waste.

A Cooperative Effort
The Hasselblad XPan was developed by Hasselblad in cooperation with Fuji Photo Film Co. Ltd. The XPan's unique and innovative approach allows dual-format capability on the same roll of film. It allows 35mm type film to produce both standard 24 x 36mm images and 24 x 65mm panoramic format on the same roll simply by rotating a format selector switch on the back of the camera. There is no masking of the film to achieve the panorama effect.

A bright viewfinder and coupled rangefinder ensures optimal viewing and focusing. Viewfinder framing is adjusted automatically according to the focal length of the lens and the chosen format. The viewfinder also has an integral LCD display showing shutter speed and exposure information. The 30mm lens is supplied with a separate viewfinder attached to the camera accessory shoe.

Ease of Use
The XPan II is almost as simple to use as a point and shoot 35mm camera while still being, when you choose it to be, a highly flexible and sophisticated professional tool. A number of features can be easily programmed using the settings on the LCD panel on the rear of the camera. Film speed, exposure compensation, auto bracketing, multi-exposure, flash sync mode, self timer delay and film return spooling mode can all be set to customized user preferences.

The black finish titanium camera features a center-weighted metering system as well as aperture priority and metered manual exposure modes. In addition, it has auto-bracketing, exposure compensation, an LCD display screen on the camera back and DX film code sensor. The camera's motorized film advance can be set for single frame or continuous shooting at the rate of 1.2fps in the 35mm format.

Excellent Lenses
There are three lenses for this camera: The standard 45mm f/4 (which comes with the XPan camera kit), the 90mm f/4, and the ultra-wide 30mm f5.6 Aspherical, which comes with its own viewfinder and center filter. The Hasselblad name ensures superb quality throughout this dual format rangefinder camera which combines 35mm convenience with medium format image quality.

Note: The XPan II is available as a body alone or in kit form that comes with a 45mm f/4 lens
