Hasselblad X1D review

 

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

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 compact system camera with a 50 megapixel 43.8 x 32.9mm medium-format CMOS sensor that is smaller than most full-frame 35mm cameras. The X1D-50c also features Raw images with 16-bit color depth and 14 stops of dynamic range,...

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

 

After the announcement, reviewer Eamon Hickey had an opportunity to get some hands-on time with a prototype of the new Hasselblad X1D medium format mirrorless camera during their press event in New York City. And while some of the finer details, such...

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.

The Hasselblad X1D: The camera you can't afford, but wish you could

 

When you think about how cumbersome the gear was in the early days of photography, it's boggling how much camera you can pack into a shoulder bag today. Hasselblad ups the boggle quotient with its X1D, the first medium-format model that can fit...
