Continuing to take medium format out of the studio, the Hasselblad X1D II 50C Medium Format Mirrorless Camera 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 uses 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.

THE POWER OF PORTABLE
Lightweight and portable, the Hasselblad X1D II 50C Medium Format Mirrorless Camera lets you take the power of medium format in a footprint smaller than most full frame 35mm cameras. Individually calibrated for optimal performance, its large 50-megapixel medium format CMOS sensor (43.8 x 32.9mm) features outstanding color depth and a huge dynamic range of 14 stops. Hasselblad Natural Color Solution technology is integrated into the camera’s system, delivering superb, true-to-life tones that match what the human eye sees. Blending form and function in its ergonomic design adopted from the award-winning first generation, the X1D II 50C continues to provide creatives with incredible Hasselblad image quality, with 16-bit RAW images and now full resolution JPEGs, in a compact, lightweight design.
HASSELBLAD USER INTERFACE (HUI)
The Hasselblad X1D II 50C Medium Format Mirrorless Camera’s brilliant 3.6-inch 2.36-million-dot touch rear display and enhanced 3.69-million-dot OLED EVF are updated with higher resolution, enabling a more accurate post capture evaluation of images. With an improved magnification of 0.87x, the X1D II 50C’s EVF is now larger, letting you see the bigger picture. In addition, the menu system is now accessible when looking at the EVF, providing greater usability in the sunniest conditions. Building upon the previous generation’s intuitive user interface with pinch-to-zoom and swipe image browsing, the X1D II 50C is refined with a quicker overall response when navigating through its menu system.
Further additions to the rear display include autofocus point drag and drop placement and autofocus point size changes with pinch/spread finger movement. With a quicker startup time, a live view with a faster refresh rate of 60 fps, and the shutter lag and black out time between frames reduced, the X1D II 50C creates an even smoother user experience.
MEDIUM FORMAT VIDEO
Along with many other features, the 1.2.0 Firmware release for the Hasselblad X1D II 50C Medium Format Mirrorless Camera adds video capture functionality. Video can be recorded at 29.97 fps with 4:2:0 8bit colour. The 2.7K resolution option delivers improved capture of detail, whilst balancing the final video capture size.
The Hasselblad X1D II 50C Medium Format Mirrorless Camera’s updated electronic platform allows for a more responsive camera experience, including faster image previewing, enabling quicker post capture evaluation. In addition, a higher frame rate of 60fps makes live view smoother in both the EVF and the rear display. The much higher resolution of the rear display screen (1024×768) gives a more vivid, true to life image viewing experience. In addition, the X1D II 50C now enables full resolution high quality in-camera JPEG images with Hasselblad’s signature colours. Dual SD card slots, now supporting the faster UHS-II standard, ensure optimal storage space or the option to back up images to a second card when shooting.
DESIGNED WITH THE PHOTOGRAPHER IN MIND
Adopting the award-winning design of the first generation, the Hasselblad X1D II 50C Medium Format Mirrorless Camera continues with Hasselblad’s heritage of blending form and function seamlessly for a smooth handling experience. Milled from high-quality, solid aluminum and designed with a clean surface with only the most crucial buttons, all other commands are easily located in the rear touch display. With the shutter built into Hasselblad lenses instead of the camera body, the weight and size of the X1D II 50C is minimized, enabling a very compact form.
The Hasselblad X1D II 50C Medium Format Mirrorless Camera’s deep grip allows for a firm hold, enabling easy and comfortable shooting. Built into the grip is an internal battery slot. Simply clicking it into place, the battery is smoothly ejected by sliding the release catch and then pressing the battery once more.
