Inspiration in Every Detail
Offering unparalleled performance in a classic design, the Hasselblad X2D 100C Medium Format Mirrorless Camera features a newly developed sensor, an upgraded phase detection autofocus design, and an all-new 5-axis 7-stop in-body image stabilization system. The X2D 100C also boasts a built-in 1TB SSD and a CFexpress Type B card slot for unprecedented storage performance in the digital photography realm.
100MP BSI CMOS Sensor
Engineered with a large 100MP BSI CMOS sensor, the X2D 100C features an extremely wide dynamic range of up to 15 stops along with vivid 16-bit color depth. The camera's 16-bit color depth can deliver up to 281 trillion colors, 64 times higher than 14-bit. When combined with the Hasselblad Natural Color Solution system, tonal transitions and skin tones show immense depth, detail, and clarity for lifelike image quality. This color management system also creates imagery with exquisite color and detail for exceptionally smooth tonal transitions reminiscent of analog film capture.
Fast and Accurate Phase Detection Autofocus
Designed with a newly developed phase detection autofocus (PDAF) system, the X2D 100C utilizes 294 PDAF zones to provide fast and accurate focusing at the press of a button. Additionally, an updated electronic platform enables a quick 3.4 fps continuous shooting rate to capture fleeting moments in fast-paced environments.
5-Axis 7-Stop In-Body Image Stabilization
Featuring 5-axis 7-stop in-body image stabilization (IBIS), the X2D 100C compensates for five different types of camera shake encountered during handheld shooting of stills. This precise and efficient system significantly reduces motion blur at slower shutter speeds and enables you to confidently capture handheld 100MP images in real-life scenarios.
Built-In Storage
Equipped with a built-in 1TB SSD with a write speed up to 2370 MB/s, the X2D 100C can store approximately 4600 raw photos or 13,800 JPEG photos. Although ample storage is built-in, additional space can be utilized via the camera's CFexpress Type B card slot. Thanks to its high-speed storage performance, the X2D 100C is able to continuously shoot 16-bit raw images in Continuous Drive Mode, providing a stable and reliable continuous shooting experience.
Upgraded Displays and Viewfinder
  • Upgraded 3.6" 2.36m-dot touch-and-tilt rear display provides a genuine and accurate full-view preview. The display also supports 40° and 70° tilting angles for convenient composition, making low-angle shots easier to compose without the need to bend down.
  • Designed with a full-color top display, the X2D 100C clearly and intuitively shows camera parameters. The top display also works seamlessly with the tilt-and-touch rear display for low-angle shooting. You can now quickly check shutter, aperture, and ISO without having to frequently check the main screen.
  • Enhanced 5.76m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder providing 1.0x magnification for bright and clear eye-level viewing. This upgraded EVF increases contrast during composition in both direct sunlight and low-light scenarios for a sharper view and a clear and immersive experience. Additionally, a new electronic diopter adjustment feature allows for a personally tailored view.
Body Design and Other Camera Features
  • Machined from individual blocks of aluminum alloy, the upper and lower shells of the X2D 100C are precisely crafted and manually assembled by experienced technicians.
  • Powers on in 2 seconds and provides a shorter shutter lag and blackout time for a smooth operational experience.
  • Neat and intuitive Hasselblad User Interface (HUI) provides quick and efficient touch control for swipe, scroll, pinch/spread to zoom, and more.
  • Sensitivity range of ISO 64-25600 is available, and still files are saved in the Hasselblad 3FR raw file format or as JPEGs.
  • Optimized for use with XCD series of lenses, which offer an integrated central shutter system, capable of sync speeds up to 1/4000 seconds.
  • Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/6000 seconds.
  • TTL support for Nikon SB-300, SB-500, SB-5000, SB-700, SB-900, and SB-910 flashes, as well as Profoto A1, B1, and B2 flashes for Nikon.
  • USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C connector can be used for file transfer, tethered shooting, or for in-camera battery charging via a computer, charger, or power bank.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi permits wireless sharing of files as well as remote camera control operation.
  • iOS device support for iPad models with 3GB of RAM or more and iPhone X or later models running iOS 14.0 or later.
  • Platform support for use with macOS 10.15 or later, or Windows 7 64-bit or later.

Should I upgrade from x1d

By Howard
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-20

Upgrade? depends 1. faster focus...i use manual mostly and not a big plus for me. But for someone who depends on the autofocus... greatly improved, but if you shoot action you will be disappointed. 2. shutter release seems faster on my xcd lenses and smoother. Blackout times are reduced as well... big plus 3. IBIS fantastic ... hand held exposures are sharp at really stupidly slow shutter speeds.... so impressive that it makes the upgrade worth it. 4. 100 megapixels ... 50 was plenty for huge prints so unless you need wall sized prints not really worth upgrading for that alone :-) 5. tilt screen is useful for sure 6. video? if you need it keep the x1d 7. top many places do i need to see camera settings? sort of liked the old, cool, mechanical mode button better. Overall: It is a very worthwhile upgrade for most photographers

First thoughts after a week

By Robert B
Rated 5 out of 5

A few thoughts after only one week having this camera. Most outstanding, the ability to shoot hand-held in low light is remarkable. You can make astonishingly good images at dawn, dusk, and indoors at night, without resorting to a tripod. The image stabilization is fantastic, and the low noise in shadows, combined with an amazing ability to retain color fidelity into the darkest areas of your photo is unlike anything I've seen before. A word of caution for Adobe Lightroom Classic users. Adobe lists the compatibility as preliminary and cautions that further enhancement may be coming. Let's hope so! If you shoot 14-bit color files in very nice lighting, Lightroom processed RAW images look pretty good. Shoot 16-bit color in extremely high dynamic range situations, however, and Lightroom completely falls apart. Those higher dynamic range images look lightyears better in Phocus. I don't care for the Phocus workflow as it coverts the RAW (3FR) files to proprietary FFF files upon import, so you need to keep two redundant sets of these huge files if you want to retain the original RAW camera output. Unfortunately, until Adobe develops much better compatibility with this camera's RAW files, that workflow is your only option to obtain good results. (I'm guessing that perhaps most people don't buy a $9,000 camera to shoot jpgs). A final note, update lens firmware if required, then the original XCD lenses work perfectly on this body and auto-focus extremely accurately.

Amazing camera launch before ready?

By Mike
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-19

This camera offers all of the things that we wanted in a follow-on to the X1D II. It is really an amazing medium format camera. Lightweight; compact; excellent clarity in the EVF and screen; image stabilization that is unbelievable until you try it; and, dynamic range that captures things your brain doesn't see. There are more good things to say, I imagine. But. Several things that we all came to love about the X1D II are missing and promised in a firmware update. Too many things in my opinion, making the launch and availability of this camera seem rushed-even to an avid early-adopter. That said, this camera is a game-changer.

My X2D vs My X1DII

By Jack
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-19

I have just received my X2D and am very happy with it in all respects except the available control of the camera that I understand will be enhanced in future firmware releases. I particularly liked the dial on the top of the X1DII with Custom settings C1, C2, C3. This has been replaced by five Custom Profiles but to ACCESS them you must press the = button on the back of the camera, then select General, then select Custom profiles, then select a profile, then select load profile. I have not been able to figure out ho to shortcut this Also focus stacking is not available at this time. The control of the XD2 is simpler than the X1DII but more limited.

Best image quality

By Kenneth
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-13

The image quality from this camera and Hasselblad lenses must be seen to be fully appreciated. It is not just the 100 mp, but the larger sensor gives images with more depth and a feeling of reality. Much better than the Fuji GFX 100s. The dynamic range allows you take photos in full sun by underexposing to protect the highlights, then the shadows can be recovered in post. The X2D lacks eye detection, but I have shot for 30 years without it and don't need it. Focus is fast enough for my landscape and portrait photos. I don't shoot photos of a model spinning around. For that you need the Hasselblad H series.

Starting with the 500cm I've owned Hasselblad cameras for over 45 years. I bought the X1Dii when it was first released, and while it is a fine camera, I just couldn't shoot handheld below 1/125 of a second and get an acceptable image with any of the four XCD lenses I own. Good thing I own some nice tripods! Over the past 2 years I found myself continuing to shoot most of my images with my Nikon D850. The X2D has changed all of that. I just got back from a trip to central Utah where I shot all of my photos with the X2D handheld to try out the IBIS. I used my older style XCD lenses and all of them focused quickly and accurately. I'm almost 70 years old, so I am probably not as steady as I used to be, but even with exposures down to one-half second, I had no problems. Medium format... I'm back!

It's a 10

By Thomas
Rated 5 out of 5

Coming from an X1D-II it feels much the same. the grip is different but feels great. The EVF is outstanding - sharp and clear - easy to adjust the diopter. Start-up, shut-down, and most importantly focus speed is faster. Focusing is more accurate. Far more focus points make it easy to select the intended subject. Less focus hunting than the X1D-II as it snaps into focus. I'm having an excellent hit rate for tack sharp focus. Tethered shooting time to Phocus software on a laptop or Mac in studio is surprisingly similar to the X1D-II. Best of all it's the same magnificent color science with 16 bit and incredible enlargement potential at 100 Megapixel! IBIS is a welcome addition and in my limited testing has proven to be incredibly sharp even at shutter speeds 5-6 stops below typical. I shoot portraits and critical wedding group shots from a tripod when possible, so I added an 'L' bracket from ProMediaGear. The one I have for the X1D-II fits, so I bought a second. It adds weight but makes it so quick to go vertical or horizontal on a tripod. I use the 'L' extension as a grip for my left hand. Holding with both hands that way really helps after a day of shooting. For candid's, fast dancing in low light, and fast action at weddings, or sports I stick with a Canon R5. Canon's incredible lenses, fast focus, and eye tracking are great. However, for portraits, environmental images, and slow-moving subjects, I can't imagine a better camera system than the Hasselblad X2D. I am totally hooked on the look of the images, the color renditions, the incredible lenses, and the ease of use. The X2D is an amazing camera and for me, worth every penny.
