Hasselblad is continuing to take medium format out of the studio with the X1D II 50C. It is a sleek exceptionally capable mirrorless camera, characterised 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 colour depth and an ISO 100-25600 sensitivity range. This sensor utilises Hasselblad's Natural Colour Solution which delivers realistic, pleasing colour tones for great consistency and smooth tonal transitions. An updated electronic platform also enables a faster 2.7fps continuous shooting rate as well as a faster start-up time, reduced shutter lag and blackout times and more responsive autofocus performance.
Balancing the imaging capabilities, the X1D II is also distinguished by an updated body with a larger 3.6" 2.36-dot touchscreen LCD and a 0.87x-magnification 3.39m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder. These work in concert to provide more comfortable and easy viewing means for shooting in a variety of conditions. The X1D II also retains the signature physical design, with an especially deep right-hand grip and smooth aluminium alloy body. The svelte overall form factor is due in part to the leaf shutter design of the XCD lenses, which obviates the need for a camera0based shutter system and afford a full flash sync throughout the shutter speed rang which is up to 1/2000 sec. Also, built-in Wi-Fi permits wireless remote control and file transferring via Phocus Mobile 2 and an integrated GPS module enables recording location date for geotagging.
This camera revolves around a large 50MP CMOS sensor which measures 43.8x32.9mm. This means that the X1D-50C is capable of capturing an extremely wide dynamic range of up to 14 stops within vivid 16-bit colour depth. When combine with the Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution, tonal transitions and skin tones show immense depth, detail and clarity for lifelike image quality, even in dark shadows and bright highlight regions. To suit working in a variety of lighting conditions, a sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600 is available and still files are saved in the Hasselblad 3FR raw file format or as JPEGs.
Working with the spectacular image quality of the 50MP CMOS sensor is the Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution that is designed to deliver images with the most natural colour without needing to delve into a variety of pre-sets. This system is also capable of creating imagery with exceptionally smooth tonal transitions that are reminiscent of analog film capture, which is thanks in part to the X1D II's 16-bit colour depth.
