Hasselblad X1D review


The compact Hasselblad X1D is a game changer in the world of medium-format photography.

Very well made ; Excellent 50MP medium-format images ; Very compact and portable ; Relatively affordable ; Leaf shutter + electronic shutter

Slow autofocus ; Poor battery life ; Low-light performance limited by lenses ; More physical controls would be nice

The Hasselblad X1D represents a new direction for the company, and while some aspects of the camera leave room for improvement, it is nevertheless an impressive machine. It does a commendable job of combining medium-format image quality and leaf...

Hasselblad X1D review: 50 million astonishing pixels


In our review of the Hasselblad X1D medium format camera, we find out exactly how far 50 megapixels can take you

Immense resolution and sharpness ; The most portable medium format camera yet ; Thoughtful, weather-resistant design

Slow ; Eats through batteries and memory cards ; Prohibitively expensive

The Hasselblad X1D difference is in its headline feature: that enormous medium format sensor and the unbelievable freedom that its 50-megapixel resolution affords. Yes, the price is stratospheric, but so is the performance. Because of its portable...

Hasselblad X1D-50c


The Hasselblad X1D-50c is the world's first medium format mirrorless camera. Its image quality is outstanding, but it's slow and the EVF leaves something to be desired.

Slim design with medium format image sensor. Incredible 16-bit Raw image quality. Growing lens library. Protected from dust and splashes. Large touch-screen display. USB-tethered operation. Leaf shutter lenses support 1/2,000-second sync. Dual memory...

Choppy EVF experience. Very slow startup and autofocus. Cannot transfer images via Wi-Fi. Limited JPG resolution. Cannot review images in EVF. Live view cuts out after 15 seconds. Underwhelming video experience. Battery life could be better.

The Hasselblad X1D-50c is a significant camera. It's an all-new form factor for Hasselblad, squeezing a huge image sensor into a svelte body. It doesn't sacrifice on image quality thanks to support for 16-bit Raw capture with more pixels than you'll...

Hasselblad X1D-50c Review


The Hasselblad X1D-50c is a beautifullly designed, impeccably built camera that offers medium-format image quality in a body that's comparable in size to a DSLR. Frustratingly, though, it's also quite a quirky product that feels rather unfinished in...

Hasselblad X1D Review


I don't know that anyone was ever prepared to say medium format was "tiny" or "lightweight," but here we are in 2017 and I spent the last couple of weeks carrying the Hasselblad X1D-50c across the country and up mountainsides like it was a point and...

Considering its unique position in the marketplace as the only mirrorless medium-format camera, the Hasselblad X1D is in some ways without any competitors. It provides its larger sensor and medium format image quality in a body that is actually smaller...

Hasselblad’s X1D puts other medium format cameras on notice


Back in June of last year, I previewed the Hasselblad X1D. Then, it was a pre-production model, which I had hoped would launch and become the powerful mirrorless medium format camera that it is now

All in all, I’m impressed and satisfied with the X1D. This isn’t the camera you’d go out and use for your next vacation, but if you do, send me some pictures.

Hasselblad’s X1D is a 50MP Medium Format Camera for $9K


Hasselblad has downsized medium format cameras with the introduction of the new Hasselblad X1D. With the same 50MP 43.8mm x 32.9mm CMOS sensor we see in the much more expensive Hasselblad H5D, the X1D shaves size, weight and price for a formiddable...

For those of us without $9K to burn on a new medium format camera, expect this trend to continue as manufacturers look for more ways to carve a niche into the photography industry. I think this is just the tip of the iceberg and players like Sony and...

Hasselblad X1D review


A mirrorless medium format game-changer

Stunning image quality ; Beautiful finish ; Very compact ; Streamlined handling ; Excellent (if limited) lenses

Moderately low-res display ; Some handling quirks ; Slow start-up time

The X1D demands a little more care and time than the average camera, but it's worth it, as you'll be rewarded with spectacular images.
