  • X1D-50c Medium Format Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only, Black)

    Determined to shake up the photographic industry, Hasselblad has unleashed a world's first in the form of the black X1D-50c Medium Format Mirrorless Digital Camera. This camera takes the well-regarded 50MP 43.8 x 32.9mm CMOS sensor found in numerous medium format systems and incorporates it into a revolutionary mirrorless camera body. Designed and handmade in Sweden, this camera is a precision tool with exceptional ergonomics and a compact size that even rivals smaller format systems. Taking this system above and beyond the rest is a large sensor that works hand-in-hand with the Hasselblad Natural Color Solution to create phenomenal raw images with smooth tonal gradations thanks to 16-bit color depth and 14 stops of dynamic range.

    Image quality is superb, and Hasselblad's electronic system is capable of capturing clean images within a sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600, while also being able to capture photos at a rate of up to 2.3 fps. Moving a bit beyond pure image quality, the X1D embraces the Hasselblad Central Lens Shutter, enabling shutter speeds as long as 60 minutes or as short as 1/2000 second, with flash sync possible at every speed. Additionally, to make the camera more versatile, Full HD 1080p video at 25 fps using H.264 compression is possible.

    Moving into operational details, the X1D embraces mirrorless design by incorporating a 2.36MP XGA electronic viewfinder that permits natural, eye-level monitoring with the added advantage of overlays and programmable information in direct sight. One such feature would be the ability to shoot in various aspects with a view that compensates for such changes, including square or the classic XPan panoramic format. Alongside this EVF is a 3.0" 920k-dot touchscreen LCD on the rear that permits intuitive operation of all of the camera's features and settings.

    For more physical and tactile use, the X1D offers front and rear dials as well as a mode dial which can be locked into a recessed position to prevent accidental changes when it is in your bag. There are also dual SD card slots for backup, organization, or just having extra storage. Bringing the system into the modern age is built-in Wi-Fi, allowing for remote connection and file transfer. Additionally, it has Mini HDMI, audio input and output, and a super-fast USB 3.0 Type C connection.

    Hasselblad X System
    Introducing mirrorless medium format, Hasselblad's X system takes the outstanding quality of a larger sensor and manages to create a compact, yet uncompromising camera that will deliver almost unparalleled image quality. It is designed and made in Sweden and draws inspiration from the company's legendary V system. Also, making use of the mirrorless design and a central lens shutter, system noise is kept to a minimum for shooting without disturbing your subject.
    50MP CMOS Sensor
    Revolving around a large 50MP CMOS sensor, measuring 43.8 x 32.9mm, the X1D-50c is capable of capturing an extremely wide dynamic range of up to 14 stops along with vivid 16-bit color depth. When combined with the Hasselblad Natural Color Solution, tonal transitions and skin tones show immense depth, detail, and clarity for lifelike image quality, even in dark shadow and bright highlight regions. To suit working in a variety of lighting conditions, a sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600 is available, and still files are saved in the Hasselblad 3FR raw file format.
    Hasselblad Natural Color Solution
    Working with the spectacular image quality of the 50MP CMOS sensor, the Hasselblad Natural Color Solution is designed to deliver images with the most natural color without needing to delve into a variety of presets. This system is also capable of creating imagery with exceptionally smooth tonal transitions that are reminiscent of analog film capture, which is thanks in part to the X1D's 16-bit color depth.
    Hasselblad Central Lens Shutter
    Able to accelerate to open and close exceptionally quickly and reliably while also using minimal power, the central lens shutter mechanism offers numerous advantages for photographers. Namely, flash sync is possible at all shutter speeds up to 1/2000 second. The shutter is also in a ready state at all times for near instant response and it causes virtually no vibration at longer exposures. Additionally, it is durable and rated to beyond 1,000,000 exposures.
    Full HD Video Recording
    In addition to high-resolution stills shooting, the X1D can also record Full HD 1080p video at 25 fps. Video can be saved in the H.264 compressed format for greater editing flexibility with a variety of software options. For further video recording capabilities, the X1D offers 3.5mm audio input and output jacks as well as a Mini HDMI port for monitoring.

    System Design and Connectivity

    Built-in 3.0" 920k-dot touchscreen LCD affords intuitive control over settings navigation and adjustment, and also permits bright, clear live view monitoring.
    Integrated 2.36MP XGA electronic viewfinder permits natural eye-level viewing as well as the ability to display overlays and additional information clearly and effectively during shooting. It also displays the capture area when set to shoot 39MP square format or XPan panoramic images.
    USB 3.0 Type-C connector offers transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps for quick and responsive tethered live view and stills capture.
    In addition to tethered shooting, dual SD memory card slots are incorporated into the side for flexible storage capabilities. Multiple options are available for maximum flexibility, including the ability to save all images to one card and automatically switch to the other when it is full as well as save RAW images to card 1 and JPEG to card 2.
    Benefitting video applications, a Mini HDMI port permits use of an optional external monitor for clear monitoring. Additionally, 3.5mm audio in and out ports are provided for more flexible control over audio recording during video.
    Built-in Wi-Fi enables working with an iOS mobile device and the Phocus Mobile app for remote camera control, wireless image previews, and file browsing.
    Optimized for use with XCD series of lenses which offer an integrated central shutter system capable of sync speeds up to 1/2000 sec.
    Optional adapter provides compatibility with the updated range of HC and HCD lenses, which feature an improved leaf shutter unit for increased shutter and flash sync speeds of up to 1/2000 sec.
    Weather and dust sealing ensures this system can stand up to all environmental conditions professionals find themselves in.
    Phocus 3.1 is a free image processing software that complements the X1D's capabilities, and enables raw file processing for both stills and video, as well as a range of editing capabilities, including automatic moiré detection and the ability to work with adjustment layers for applying exposure, white balance, and color corrections.

Hasselblad X1D-50c reviews

X1D-50c Medium Format Mirrorless Digital Camera and Lenses Field Kit (Black) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for everyone I've been a Canon DSLR shooter for 3 decades. I "moved up" to medium format with the assumption I'd up my game. I'm not finding that to be the case. At all. The X1D is slow as molasses. Shooting at the lagoon yesterday I had to wait 1��seconds for my next shot--the birds had flown. This may have its place in a studio--the build quality is astounding (except for the side door access--they're breaking off out there) and the box and foam is wonderful. Their "Customer Service" email is absolute a waste of time; I've been ignored three times and quit writing. It's amazingly delightful and yet seems to not fill the bill. The word "arrogance" seems to fit. It gets three only b/c of build quality. Otherwise I'm under impressed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Camera well done While I have not yet had the opportunity to fully engage in use of equipment, my initial reactions are very favorable. Compared to similar medium format cameras I have held and reviewed I think Hasselblad has it hands down. It is far easier to hold and use. I find the settings to be more intuitive quickly getting to the photo vs. programing complicated settings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use the right tool for the right thing I understand some folks think a medium format camera should be expected to operate the same way another camera does. This is simply not the case. Each camera has it's own purpose and should be used as such and should not be derided if one is not used for it's intended purpose. I own lots of Canon gear, I own lots of Leica M gear, I own Leica SL gear, I own Pentax 645Z gear, and I now I own the Hasselblad X1D system and just love it, just as much as the rest of my gear. When I want to photograph fast moving subjects, I use my Canon 1DX. It works fantastic. When I want street shots, I turn to my Leica M gear and it works fantastic. When I want exact focus and precise colors for my landscape shots I turn to my X1D system and it works fantastic. Since it's a new system, Hasselbald is working out the firmware and adding new updates to it. I am especially excited to buy the new 21mm XCD lens in April once it is available. Also, since the X1D is a leaf shutter system, it will not perform in the same manner as a DSLR. They are two separately engineered tools. The Canon will not sync a flash up to 1/2000 sec, so there are pros and cons to every single system out there.� The X1D files are amazing to work with. The 14 stop DR is amazing. The 16 bit color is amazing. The camera is not a speed demon and is not engineered to be that way. It is meant to be a deliberate use camera where you actually stop and think about your shot. It's not a machine gun camera. It's not a tracking camera. For a MF camera, it has many new features that other much more expensive MF cameras do not have like movable focus point. Most only have 1 point that is not movable or has a limited movable area. I have read about folks complaining about a long blackout period but I have not had any issue with mine. Battery life depends on your technique. I have usually managed to get around 250 to 300 shots from one charge. The batteries seem to last a little longer the more times they get recharged. The weight and handling is incredible for a MF camera. Nothing else comes close to my knowledge. All in all, this system has been a joy to use with spectacular results and I am looking forward to the new lenses and new firmware updates as time goes on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First impressions are important! First off, I always get great service from these folks!� First impressions are important! This made a great impression. Solid Build. Easy to hold.� I shoot a Nikon (D300, Df) systems, have for years, have an old 500c/m but got tired of the darkroom and that expense. I am not a pro, but did get a degree in photography when camera's had film only! I bought this camera because i wanted to step up my game. This surely does that. I am not looking to use this camera for fast action, it doesnt seem to be built for that. I have a lot to learn about this system and am looking forward to it. I don't do studio work, so i can not speak to that. I do like how it feels, solid as expected from these guys.� It is easy to hold and feels comfortable being held. It comes with a hand strap that is rather wonky to put on. Will find a different solution. I posted a shot from a morning walk, one of the first shots as i just got the camera a few hours ago. I will have more to say as i use it. Now to find a printer to handle the beautiful files this camera creates....
