Compact. Powerful. Extended.
Equipped with a 50 megapixel sensor, the mirrorless X1D II 50C medium format camera is the continuation of the lightweight and mobile X system. The X1D II 50C's compact design keeps the medium format mobile, surrounded by the award-winning design of the first generation. Enhanced technology includes a larger 3.6-inch touch screen, improved Electronic Viewfinder (EVF), higher Live View refresh rate, and more intuitive and responsive menu navigation.
The Hasselblad Phocus Mobile 2 App makes it easy to integrate an iPad Pro into mobile workflows via USB-C or Wi-Fi. With an extensive range of high-quality lenses such as the XCD, HC/HCD, XPan and V-System lenses, the creative possibilities are limitless.
Lightweight and easy to carry, the X1D II 50C offers medium format performance in more compact dimensions than most 35mm full-frame cameras. The 50 megapixel CMOS sensor of each camera is individually calibrated for optimal performance. Measuring 43.8 x 32.9 mm, it offers exceptional colour depth and a dynamic range of 14 f-stops. The integrated Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution (HNCS) delivers superior natural colour tones that match human visual perception. Based on the award-winning first generation design, the Hasselblad X1D II 50C continues the concept of the ideal combination of form and function. It offers Hasselblad's traditional outstanding image quality, providing 16-bit RAW and full-resolution JPEG images in a compact and lightweight body design.
The brilliant 3.6 inch 2.36 million dot touch screen and 3.69 dot OLED EVF provide higher resolution for better post-shoot evaluation. With a magnification factor of 0.87, the EVF in the X1D II 50C is now even larger, making it even more visible. In addition, the system menu can also be accessed when using the EVF, which is particularly advantageous in strong solar radiation.
Based on the intuitive menu navigation of its predecessor, the menu of the X1D II 50C is even more responsive. In addition, the touch screen allows the automatic focus to be shifted with just one finger and the focus area to be easily adjusted with two fingers. With almost half the start time of its predecessor, a higher Live View refresh rate of 60 fps, a low shutter release delay and shorter waiting times between shots, the camera offers even smoother operation.
The enhanced electronic platform in the X1D II 50C provides an even more responsive camera system, with faster preview and evaluation of the shot. In addition, the higher frame rate of 60 frames per second ensures an even smoother Live View display - both on the touch screen and in the EVF. The higher resolution (1024x768) of the touch screen displays images clearly and lifelike. With the X1D II 50C, full-resolution images can now be generated as high-quality JPEG files in the camera - with Hasselblad's well-known colour fastness. Dual SD card slots with ultra-fast UHS-II bus provide sufficient available storage space and can be used as an alternative to making a backup copy during recording.
Built-in Wi-Fi and USB-C simplify mobile workflows with wireless or USB-connected image transfer and tethered recording via Phocus Mobile 2. Tethered recording is also possible via Phocus desktop software for macOS and Windows. The built-in GPS module allows you to add the location of the recording directly if you wish.
Mobile workflows with PHOCUS MOBILE 2
For even more possibilities when working with a Hasselblad, Phocus Mobile 2 takes the image editing process to a new, more mobile level. Connected via USB-C and Wi-Fi, Phocus Mobile 2 works on the iPad Pro and the latest iPad Air Tablets - giving busy photographers a fast, efficient and always-available mobile workflow. With the app, users can import and edit RAW recordings or transfer JPEG recordings with full quality and rate them directly. In addition, images can be exported in full quality, the camera can be controlled via the tablet and tethered images can be taken.
Designed for professional photographers
Based on the award-winning first-generation design, Hasselblad continues its design concept with the X1D II 50C, combining form and function for ideal handling. The most important buttons and dials are located on the outside of the camera, ensuring a clearly structured housing design. All other settings are easily accessible via the touchscreen. The USB-C port and the two SD card slots are protected from the weather by two robust flaps. Due to the position of the shutter in the lens, the weight of the X1D II 50C could be reduced and made much more compact.
First-class lenses from 21 to 500 mm
With the X1D II 50C, photographers have access to the full range of Hasselblad medium format lenses. This includes 9 XCD lenses, 12 HC/HCD lenses (and the H 1.7X converter) with the XH adapter and other H system accessories, XPan lenses can be used with the XPan adapter, and V system lenses can be used with the XV adapter. All XCD and HC/HCD lenses have a central shutter for unrestricted flash synchronization up to 1/2000 s for all X-System lenses. Manufactured from rugged metal components, Hasselblad lenses have been thoroughly tested to deliver optimum performance and image quality.
The ninth lens in the series of X-System lenses is the XCD 3.5-4.5/35-75 zoom lens. The lens delivers the same outstanding image quality and edge sharpness as the fixed focal length XCD lenses. This special high-performance lens covers the focal length range from light wide-angle to light telephoto. The internal focusing keeps the length of the lens constant, provides fast focus and keeps the overall weight low, making it ideal for wide-angle landscapes or portraits, and for photographers who want to take little equipment with them on their travels but don't want to compromise on image quality. As with other XCD lenses, the XCD 35 - 75 has a central shutter, with exposure times between 68 minutes and 1/2000 seconds - with continuous flash synchronization.
