907x CFVII 50C: The Past and the Future
Uniquely modular, the Hasselblad 907X 50C is a medium format camera system meshing design elements from their classic film cameras with contemporary imaging capabilities from their digital era. The 907X 50C platform comprises the matched CFV II 50C digital back and 907X camera body, which work in tandem as a distinct and versatile camera system.

The 907X has the distinction of being the smallest medium format camera Hasselblad has ever created, measuring just over an inch thick, as well as the lightest, at 7 oz. Recalling the form of the famed 500-series V-system cameras, though, this simple camera body mainly serves as the interface between the V interface of the CFV II 50C digital back and the X-mount for working with XCD lenses or adapted lenses from other mounts.

The CFV II 50C is an updated and refined digital back featuring a classic V-system interface for use on the included 907X as well as virtually any Hasselblad V camera from 1957 onward. Designed with the classic A12 and A16 film backs in mind, this digital back has been outfitted with versatile digital capabilities, revolving around a 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. The back's design also incorporates a rear 3.2" 2.4m-dot tilting touchscreen LCD, to recall the experience of working with a waist-level finder, and it now houses the rechargeable lithium-ion battery internally for a sleeker overall profile. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi permits wireless remote control and file transferring via Phocus Mobile 2.
907X Camera Body
Characterized by its impressively compact, lightweight design, the 907X is Hasselblad's smallest medium format camera body and serves as the inconspicuous interface between the V-system interface CFV II 50C digital back and the range of X-system mirrorless lenses. By providing an X-system lens mount, this opens up the opportunity to pair the CFV II with the autofocus and leaf shutter-enabled XCD lenses, as well as HC, HCD, V, XPan, and other third-party lenses via optional adapters. Use of the 907X also enables greater access to wide-angle lens options, compared to the V system, when using XCD lenses.
CFV II 50C Digital Back
50MP CMOS Sensor and Hasselblad Natural Color Solution
Revolving around a large 50MP CMOS sensor, measuring 43.8 x 32.9mm, the CFV II 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 CFV II's 16-bit color depth.

In addition to capturing breathtaking still images, the CFV II 50C is also capable of capturing high resolution video, shooting at 2.7K (2720 x 1530) and HD (1920 x 1080), using the full sensor width in a 16:9 ratio. The video is recorded using an H.264 compressed codec at 29,97 fps, for up to 29 minutes, 59 seconds. A 3.5mm mini-phono input port allows the use of an external microphone while recording video.

Back Design
  • Using a V-system interface, this digital back can be used in conjunction with the included 907X camera body, with virtually any Hasselblad V system film camera from 1957 or later, or with technical and view cameras featuring a V-system mounting interface.
  • Integrated 3.2" 2.4m-dot tilting 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. The screen's tilting design also reinforces a top-down viewing position, akin to working with an optical waist-level finder.
  • Accepts one rechargeable lithium-ion battery internally in order to maintain the overall svelte profile reminiscent of A12 and A16 film backs. This battery can be charged in-back, too, via the USB Type-C port.
  • 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.
  • 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 select iPad models, 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.

    Hasselblad 907X 50C Reviews

    I love this camera for several reasons.

    My XIDII Hassleblad was a wonderful camera, but it was getting to be too heavy for my aged body! I have always wanted to replace my earlier Hassleblads with a digital back but didn't feel I could justify the cost and now along came the 907X50C! I truly love it because of the weight and viewfinder that is easier for me to use. Plus of course the results!

    Basic photography at it's finest!

    At 76 I never thought I would have a Hasselbald. The 907x 50c with the 45P lens is beyond my wildest imagination. If this type camera is on your bucket list; do not hesitate to get it. Your children will thank you.

    The captures from this camera are simply amazing. In situations where I would have previously needed HDR, a single exposure from this camera provides excellent tonality from deep shadows to brilliant highlights. The camera is very compact, and the back performs flawlessly on my 500C film camera.

    First medium format camera I've used

    I've been a Nikon customer since 2005 so using a medium format camera came with some anxiety. The Hasselblad was more intuitive than I had anticipated which made working with it so easy. The touch screen was simple and framing without a typical viewfinder was not a problem. Exposure is amazing even in low light with extreme sharpness.

    Well, this is fabulous.

    I purchased the CFV II 50C digital back, and it came along with another camera body. Not interested in that. The moment I opened the box (after admiring grade A presentation where even the plastic caps are color and texture matched to the paper boxes) I mounted it to my Hasselblad 500cm. I think superb is an understatement. The sheer attention to detail, and the seamless connectivity is mind blowing. Every mechanical function is integrated with zero hesitation, producing pin sharp and gorgeously rendered photographs. Large ones at that. Fit and finish is to be expected from a company that has created history's best cameras. The CFV II is the perfect addition to the V system, flawlessly fitting into not only the workflow, but the style and ergonomics as well. I think Victor would be proud. I think it is worth the high cost, I mean, we can live just fine with one kidney right? I don't miss mine...much. On the B&H end, I wanted to go with a zero problem reputable seller, I don't have tons of money, and this was a difficult and large purchase. Well, that's what happened, zero problems. It shipped quickly and arrived all in perfect order. Then again, no new camera gear ever ships quick if you catch my drift.

    Spectacular images

    I have been a serious sometime professional and mostly amateur photographer for 60 years. I used the V series Hasselblad for many years and as well 4x5 view cameras and Leica....I have read the constructive criticisms about autofocus being slow. This camera is not for the point and shoot crowd or sports or other action photography (wildlife). If scenic, architectural photography, portrait photography or macrophotography are a large part of your photographic interests, this camera cannot be beat. It is designed for the contemplative photographer of old: zone system etc. The camera size is great for travel and the interface is brilliantly straight forward. I just returned from Iceland and used primarily the 40p and 135 lenses. The images and color out of the camera were superb. You have to take the time to place the focus square and meter where they work best and the results could not be better. I took a large number of pictures hand held and a smaller number on a tripod...both produced excellent results. Dynamic range is huge. Color out of the camera could not be better. I could not have been happier with my results. If you are a photographer who has used the V system before and value a slower thoughtful approach, this camera cannot be beat. I relied mostly on the autofocus, and while slow, it was very accurate. If you are looking for action or wildlife close ups, this is not for you. If you want a great images that took some thought, you will not be disappointed,

    Pure Joy !

    I bought this camera with the 45P lens and the results are incredible. The camera handles extremely well and the menu system is easy to use. This is a finely tuned picture taking machine without all the unnecessary bells and whistles that are so common on today's camera offerings. It will not disappoint.
