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.
