Continuing to take medium format out of the studio, the Hasselblad X1D II 50C is a sleek and exceptionally capable mirrorless camera, characterized by its thoughtful design and powerful imaging capabilities. This second-generation X System camera shows a revised and enhanced feature-set designed to quicken performance and make overall operation even more intuitive and streamlined. At the core of the X1D II remains the large 43.8 x 32.9mm 50MP CMOS sensor, which yields high-resolution imagery with a wide 14-stop dynamic range, 16-bit color depth, and an ISO 100-25600 sensitivity range. This sensor utilizes Hasselblad's Natural Color Solution, too, which delivers realistic, pleasing color tones for great consistency and smooth tonal transitions. An updated electronic platform also enables a faster 2.7 fps continuous shooting rate as well as a faster startup time, reduced shutter lag and blackout times, and more responsive autofocus performance.

Balancing the imaging capabilities, the X1D II is also distinguished by an updated body with a larger 3.6" 2.36m-dot touchscreen LCD and a 0.87x-magnification 3.39m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder. These work in concert to provide more comfortable and easy viewing means for shooting in a variety of conditions. The X1D II also retains the signature physical design, with an especially deep right-hand grip and smooth aluminum alloy body. The svelte overall form factor is due in part to the leaf shutter design of the XCD lenses, which obviates the need for a camera-based shutter system and affords full flash sync throughout the shutter speed range up to 1/2000 sec. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi permits wireless remote control and file transferring via Phocus Mobile 2 and an integrated GPS module enables recording location data for geotagging.

50MP CMOS Sensor and Hasselblad Natural Color Solution

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 or as JPEGs.

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 II's 16-bit color depth.

Body Design

  • Large 3.6" 2.36m-dot (1024 x 768) rear LCD features a touchscreen design for intuitive control, menu navigation, and playback. The updated screen also has a fast 60 fps refresh rate for more fluid playback and the screen also supports autofocus point drag and drop placement and autofocus point size changes with pinch/spread finger movement.
  • Enhanced 3.69m-dot (1280 x 960) OLED electronic viewfinder features a high 0.87x magnification for bright and clear eye-level viewing. The increased resolution benefits manual focus accuracy and the menu system can also be viewed through the EVF for more intuitive adjustment when working in bright conditions.
  • Dual SD memory card slots both support the UHS-II protocol for faster read/write speeds.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi permits wireless sharing of files as well as remote camera control. Additionally, Phocus Mobile 2 allows for a rich tethered shooting experience from an iPad Pro or iPad Air (2019).
  • USB 3.0 Type-C connector can be used for file transfer, tethered shooting from an iPad, or for in-camera battery charging via a computer, charger, or power bank.
  • Integrated GPS module can be used for recording location details to image files for geotagging applications.
  • Distinctly ergonomic and stylish body design uses a milled aluminum alloy chassis with a clean surface finish and minimal number of buttons and dials for a more streamlined user interface. Additionally, due to the inclusion leaf shutters within the lenses, the overall body's design can be significantly reduced for a more compact and lightweight form factor.

Other Camera Features

  • Updated electronic platform realizes faster overall performance, including a 46% faster startup time, reduced shutter lag and blackout times, as well as more responsive autofocus compared to the first generation X1D.
  • Optimized for use with XCD series of lenses, which offer an integrated central shutter system, capable of sync speeds up to 1/2000 sec.
  • Phocus Mobile 2, available for iPad Pro and iPad Air (2019), permits importing, editing, and rating of raw images as well as importing and rating full-resolution JPEG images directly on a tablet. Additionally, Phocus Mobile 2 supports full-resolution image export, tethered shooting, and direct camera control.
  • Conventional computer-based tethered shooting is supported via the desktop version of Phocus.

I notice they offer adapters for Nikon and Canon lenses. Will these lenses create vignetting with the larger sensor ? Also, will they focus all the way to infinity ?
Asked by: Brian
I haven't had focus-to-infinity problems and wouldn't expect them. There's a list of Nikon F lenses that don't vignette too much on Ming Thein's blog, "E-shutter firmware for the Hasselblad X1D." Some do and some don't. He also has an article on M mount lenses which may be a better choice than Nikon on the short end because they're smaller. As others have said the electronic shutter has a massive rolling effect, but it does read at full 14 bits and is silent.

I love the 100mm f/2.2 lens, can I use it with this camera?
Asked by: Martin
Unlike the XV adapter, the XH adapter has contacts and will focus most H lenses (except very old ones), update firmware, apply corrections, etc., but the following are not working: - XH adapter + HV adapter. There's no way to use the shutter in V lenses with X1D. You have to use the XV adapter and the electronic shutter. - lens corrections on HTS. Phocus's corrections for distortion and vignetting aware of tilt-shift only work on H series. The tilt-shift adapter itself will work, though. - focus stacking. The calibrations to do perfectly-spaced focus stacking aware of circle-of-confusion only work with XCD lenses. - True Focus. The X1D doesn't have this feature, so all the work done to calibrate the focal planes and focus shift of H lenses is wasted. I also have the HC 1,9/100, and overall it's a good experience on X1D.

I have three Pentacon Six Zeiss Jena lenses I use on my Canon EOS cameras with an adapter. Can I combine that with the Fotodiox adapter that adapts EOS lenses to Hasselblad ? This website says it works with the X1D ll 50c. I just wonder if these two adapters are compatible with each other. I realize this will be manual and electronic shutter.
Asked by: Brian
Adapters are not meant to be stacked. Chances are it will not work. Best option would to use one adapter Pentacon six to Hasselblad. KIPON Tilt/Shift Lens Mount Adapter for Pentacon Six Lens to Hasselblad X-Mount Camera BH #KITSP6X1D • MFR #TS P6-X1D https://bhpho.to/35hUP66
