By opting for a mirrorless design, we were able to take our 50MP CMOS sensor and pack it into a footprint smaller than most full frame 35mm cameras. For the very first time, photographers have a camera that is no larger than a small format rangefinder, but offers the quality that only Hasselblad medium format can give. The deep and comfortable handgrip beautifully complements the slender body, creating a camera like no other.
The X1D’s high-resolution rear LCD offers touch control for all aspects of the camera’s features. The elegant icon-based user interface speeds access to customisation options along with intuitive playback functions such as swipe and pinch to zoom. The camera also boasts an XGA electronic viewfinder for bright, crisp viewing even under difficult lighting conditions.
New Lens Range
To enhance the entirely new camera design we have produced a new range of autofocus lenses specifically engineered to match the high resolution capability of the X1D. The superb new XCD lenses deliver edge-to-edge sharpness in a compact form to elegantly match the slim build of the body. Existing H System users also have the flexibility to use their lenses with the X1D by means of an optional adapter.
Dual Card Slots
For maximum flexibility the X1D boasts dual SD card slots, allowing images to be saved to both cards simultaneously or shoot to the second card when the first is full.
The USB 3.0 Type-C connector offers state-of-the-art connectivity along with blisteringly fast transfer speeds. Built-in high speed Wi-Fi gives you the freedom to preview your shots and even control the camera wirelessly using Phocus Mobile on an iOS device. Geotagging of images is handled by the X1D’s external GPS module.
With an extended ISO range up to a staggering 25,600, the X1D can shoot in the poorest of light while still retaining crisp detail in both shadows and highlights. Coupled with a shutter speed range of 60 minutes to 1/2000th second – with flash synchronisation at all speeds – the X1D offers incredible capture options.
