HASSELBLAD

New Zealand D-Photo - - BEST TECH -

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.
