Hasselblad X1D II 50C First Impressions

Gavin Stoker | Digital , Compact System Camera , Lenses

Some three years almost exactly since the announcement of its predecessor, a new compact digital medium format camera from Hasselblad has landed in the shape of the X1D II 50C. What has been tweaked this time essentially boils down to speed and performance. As its name suggests, the camera still has a 50 MP sensor at its heart, along with an OLED EVF and 3.6-inch touchscreen. With the Phocus Mobile 2 app unveiled alongside it allowing images to be shared to your iPhone, the idea is that with the Hasselblad X1D II 50C, we’ll be able to “take the beauty of medium format anywhere.” Compatibility is offered with its maker’s state-of-the-art leaf shutter XCD lens family, for which we also have a new addition in the XCD 35-75mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom.

Mark Goldstein | Compact System Camera

Leica have quietly unveiled the Leica M-E (Typ 240) full-frame mirrorless camera, which is essentially a standard Leica M that can now shoot video.

Finished in a new anthracite grey paint with genuine leather trim, the M-E can shoot 1080p, full-HD movies with the classic ‘Leica look’ via a dedicated recording button, but unlike most cameras released in 2019, it can't manage 4K quality.

Other standout features of the Lecia M-E will be familiar to Leica M owners - 24MP CMOS sensor, ISO 6400, 2GB buffer memory and the usual Leica attention to detail. The M-E is is also compatible with virtually every M lens ever produced.

The new Leica M-E will be available to buy from the end of July, priced at $3,995.
