Hasselblad has had a rich 75-year history in imaging, but the company’s recent move to mirrorless looks to excite a new generation of Hasselblad users, as the company continues to push the limits of photography to new heights. The Hasselblad X1D combines portability with excellent optical quality, for which the brand is renowned. At less than half the weight of a medium-format DSLR, the mirrorless model packs a 50MP CMOS sensor into a footprint smaller than most full-frame cameras. The camera’s shutter-speed range covers 1/2000s to 60min, with the ability to capture up to 14 stops of dynamic range. The X1D achieves unprecedented detail — from the deepest shadows to the brightest highlights. The X1D’s high-resolution rear LCD offers touch control for all aspects of the camera’s features, while it has an XGA electronic viewfinder for bright, crisp viewing, even under difficult lighting conditions. Hand-made in Sweden, and inspired by the company’s iconic design heritage, the camera’s rugged body is milled from aluminium to provide a durable build and high-end finish.
