Hasselblad has entered the mirrorless camera race in a big way, with the introduction of the X1D medium format mirrorless camera.

Hasselblad X1D

World’s First Medium Format Mirrorless Camera

Fully designed by Hasselblad & handmade in Sweden, the 1XD is less than half the weight of a conventional digital medium format camera, mostly due to the lack of a mirror assembly and no need for a digital back.

Hasselblad X-1D medium format mirrorless camera The X1D features a built-in high-resolution LCD offering touch controls for all aspects of the cameras features. Using an icon-based user interface rather than a typical menu, which should make it easier for users to access customization and playback options such as being able to swipe and pinch to zoom.

The 2.4 MP electronic viewfinder will allow for bright crisp viewing even in difficult lighting conditions.

As with all mirrorless cameras, the X1D is smaller than most full frame 35mm cameras, and almost all of it medium format competitors.
