I have a Hasselblad F2 camera with a lens 120 hc macro 120 mm.

My question is the  X2D 100C with the lens XCD 120 Macro

Will give me the same results as my old camera?

I take pictures of drawings and illustrations from which books are printed. Is the camera suitable for this?



While I am not familiar with the Hasselblad F2 camera you list above, and I could not find any information online for this camera model, most all older Hasselblad film cameras use120 or 220 film with the actual film frame size being 54 x 54mm.  The sensor Hasselblad X2D 100C Medium Format Mirrorless Camera measures 43.8 x 32.9mm in size.  Given the smaller sensor size of the X2D, there will be a crop factor of approximately ~1.39x when comparing the 120mm lens' focal length to the focal length of the 120mm lens used on the older film camera.  As such, the 120mm lens used on the X2D will have an approximate equivalent of a 166.8mm lens used on your older film camera.  Also, do note that the older film medium format camera's film frame was square, whereas the frame on the X2D will be slightly rectangular.  Those would be the main differences in results.  The image will appear cropped slightly compared to the same focal length used on your current film camera, and the native frame size will be rectangular instead of square.  That being said, as both lenses are macro lenses, if you are using the lens as a macro lens, you should get similar results with the Hasselblad X2D 100C Medium Format Mirrorless Camera as you did with your older Hasselblad F2 camera.
