I have always preferred to manually focus. I see that the Pentax 645z has the mode of operation I need, so I guess I’ll go that direction, but I’d really rather have the X1D! 300ms read out time make it quite hard to shoot objects with straight lines handheld. Just curious: if you were in charge, what would the first lens in the 645 line up that you would update? It may be due to the shape and coating of the back of the lens’ mount, actually. Not that I’m aware of. Obviously, they’re not shooting moving subjects – but it’s quite a testament to the effort Hasselblad has put into the sensor calibration for the X1D. I guess you do get a bit squeezed between your desire to photograph, your ambition to have H’blads made even better and all of us adding our wishlists…, I hope you find time, at least once in a while, to unsqueeze yourself! Having a very short flange distance to work with also opens up significant options, and not just through the possibility of adapted lenses but also at the wide end: the 30mm is arguably the best wide angle medium format lens I’ve used (and one of the best wide angles, period) – but is two thirds the size and weight of the H system equivalent, as well as being a third of a stop faster. La mirrorless medio formato Hasselblad X1D-50c è dotata di un sensore CMOS da 50Mp 43,8x32,9mm "croppato". The 1,9/80 can make exposures as short as 1/2,000-second and as long as 68 minutes. I wonder if the traveling slit of a focal plane shutter reduces resolution. Please describe the features. = NOT a Medium Format Camera :-/Comparing Apples to Bananas here. Firmware version 1.22 adds improved support for a number of lenses and improved functionality and customizable settings within the camera itself. In an interesting change of focus (yuk yuk), Hasselblad is opening its high-end imaging tools up to a wider range of people than ever before. Thanks again for your comments. Leaf shutter lenses support 1/2,000-second sync. The camera just put me in mind of the A7R, a flawed but good enough camera undone basically by shutter shock, duff RAW, and optical problems caused by the short flange distance (for me). Just as Thematic says, the Sigma has several drawbacks. The article lists the MSRP on the Hasselblad site. Love the styling, which pleasingly leaves the pentaprism-look behind. You had the opportunity right there to spell out that the OE lenses from the MF system will likely negate any/all comparison with the FF DSLR for final IQ, but instead you double-down on the AF speed and wider range of available lenses for the DSLR. I do agree with another frequent piece of feedback I get, though: my back would really appreciate a tilting LCD. It is curious why others haven't followed suit if this base ISO gives a FF camera equal footing with larger sensors or would help them compete against Nikon. Now, three months later, the company has confirmed in a statement that the personal information of past and current employees was taken from its servers. Noted on bracketing, which I believe should be coming in future FW. Sadly, this has always been normal: people judge a review by the number of words, the number of complaints etc. I made no such claim and I base my choices on facts. Also color accuracy from calibration of individual sensors. My goal is to couple x1d and canon tse lens basically for long exposure shots. It still works due to the two lateral “hooks”, but the top and bottom mechanism that holds it in place are broken. Depending on what properties you're looking for from a lens and which lenses you're looking at, I wouldn't state outright that the Hasselblad lenses are automatically better (even without factoring in whether they're better in proportion to their price). instruments. was also done with Hassy. I have the 45mm and 90mm lenses. That said, the Sigma gives you fantastic resolution for the money and, for some scenes, gives you a surprisingly crisp image. Far from a revolutionary update, it is built on … I’ve seen with detail many X1D pics by diverse photogs, and they always seem to me like that, forced towards the vivid side. ... Hasselblad X1D. It’s a good reason to go to Photokina this year and get my hands on one. Can you provide some enlightenment into the Phocus software? La gamma di sensibilità, inclusa estensione, è 100 - 25600 ISO e può scattare a raffica di 2.3 FPS. Operational speed and battery life limit the variety of shooting situations in which the X1D excels. reframing the world one picture at a time, It’s been a long time coming – over a year since I first used the camera – and I will apologize for two things in advance: both the length of time it’s taken to complete, and the absence of any kind of objectivity since somebody will point out I work for Hasselblad. The lens profiles are acceptable, and the camera itself only requires a minor profile change to get to neutral via ACR. So, whilst electronic shutter is possible and is now offered from FW 1.19, it must be used with caution especially with moving subjects. What I really want to know is how practical is it to use. The 24mm F3.5, 35mm F2 and 65mm F2 DG DN share similar designs and have weather-sealed metal bodies. I quite agree that lenses are part of the bigger picture. As for onion rings due to vignetting – that’s definitely a file compression artefact because there’s often simply not enough data left to interpolate to compensate for exposure especially in the lower tonal ranges. I will receive the camera back this week on the 7th. The Iceland farm photo practically sells the camera to me … those subtle, subtle colours. Thanks. Its image quality is outstanding, but it's slow and the EVF leaves something to be desired. I’m quite happy with the current one but SL and GFX EVFs just rock. It looks like this is the best money can get. Yes, no problems so long as you’re using a sealed lens (all of the native X lenses are sealed) – I’ve shot in tropical monsoon rain and by heavy surf in Iceland with it before. My spouse, who is although a photographer, is very shortsighted and wears glasses. A brown box showed up on November 3rd and low and behold it was the Hasselblad X1D—just in time to take to Antarctica. The decision to use leaf shutters has crippled the camera's ability to use adapted 3rd party lenses, a key feature of ever other mirrorless systems. And most of all, who is this for? It’s a tried, tested and proven sensor with a good 14-15 stops of dynamic range, very low noise properties and fairly large pixels for forgiving diffraction characteristics. The 35mm F2 DG DN is the standard prime in the group of new Sigma I-series lenses. Haven’t used 50 v1, but 45 and 50 v2 are both excellent. Yes, that chimes with my recollection: the shutter was trying to rotate the camera in my hands. If you took the time to check everything I'd taken the time to outline in the original post, you'd know that it's factually correct, and gives an accurate historical context to the camera under review. So inersplicing your articles with your photos is the equivalent of being intimidated by the degrees on a doctor’s office walls it gives credibility to what he says. The Hasselblad X1D II 50C produces very clear images throughout its sensitivity scale, which helps resolve very fine detail. Full agree with your requests though . Knowing me tho, I'd still take it hiking.. Hasselblad ran out of time, and money, to develop the X1D before they launched. is there any Hasselblad forum you know of where people exchange ideas on Hasselblad? Crucially, its mirrorless design means it’s far smaller than a DSLR medium format camera. The 80mm might provide a replacement for the 90mm at some point, though I worry about it’s size. It's available in Canon EF, Fuji X, Leica M, M42, MFT, Nikon F, Pentax K and Sony E mounts and the first units are expected to ship in January 2021. There are a lot of photo/video cameras that have found a role as B-cameras on professional productions or A-camera for amateur and independent productions. There’s a reason why I didn’t write this review until now, which I made clear: I didn’t think the firmware was mature until the last version. Are there any plans for native tilt-shift XCD lens? The screen is touch sensitive, which is great for double tapping and checking focus or changing deeper level settings, but most of the time – it’s just set exposure and shoot. The D850 required me to be dedicated to the shoot and I had to plan, but the portability of the X1D simply begs you to take it with you everywhere. Find out if it'll make your life easier in our detailed review. You’re probably better off sending feedback to them directly…. The blooming of University of Washington's cherry blossom trees is an annual Seattle tradition – and a challenging photographic subject. I have actually used a GFX. So difficult to focus I almost sent it back–then the firmware updates starting coming and have resolved my issues. The truth is Pentax isn't sexy (anymore.) The result? Psst: the D7200, 7500, and 500 have no where near the pixel count of this Hasselblad. I hope they will forger out what the issue is here. The comparison with the Pentax 645z isn't just about whether you prefer an optical or a an electronic viewfinder. Best regards, bro, and I wish you all the best! Many thanks, Ming ! Take for instance the Richard Butler picture, in photos he usually comes across as a very handsome, nattily attired gentleman, but human nonetheless. Very ironic, the world wants more junk and gets it. I trust that your reference to ‘final’ firmware was not an implication that v1.20.1 is the final firmware release for the camera. I have actually had my hands on one of these at the photography show in Birmingham last year. Additionally, we’ve seen addition of support for the HTS tilt shift adaptor (via the X-H system adaptor) for camera movements and fully profiled optical corrections via Phocus; electronic shutter capability; multiple focus points and focus point size adjustment; exposure warnings; focus peaking; GPS support and a lot of stability improvements and bug fixes. Wow!If new Nikon mirrorless brings 50iso base it will be a true killer for all current MF 50mp. We could easily improve the latter for better outrigh speed, but accuracy is still limited by the quantity of data inbound. Photography is a subjective, aesthetic, artistic, intangible pursuit: you’re not going to do it unless you have to if the process isn’t enjoyable, too. A 50mp FF body will give the same magnification for a print than a medium format body with 50 mp. In my kit, I have all wide-angles available for the Hasselblad X1D, the 21mm XCD (see my HASSELBLAD XCD 21MM F/4 IN-DEPTH REVIEW), the lens featured here in this Hasselblad XCD 30mm in-depth review and the 45mm (see my HASSELBLAD XCD 45MM F/3.5 IN-DEPTH REVIEW). Generally, the galleries are shot in conditions that hide the difference between cameras. Read our Hasselblad X1D review I’m not sure – I also don’t remember it being that bad on any of the lenses I’ve used…, Fair enough. The 1/2,000 sync speed of the X1D is hugely important for pro portrait and people shooting. The app includes automatic image transfer, gallery creation, editing tools and more. I think there’s a Kipon adaptor that gives electronic aperture control on Canon lenses (including their TS options). A couple of them are impressed enough with the results on the X1D (cropped for most lenses, uncropped for some) that they’ve discussed dumping their Leica bodies and just using the X1D instead. And MF lenses are typical next level compared to even the best FF lenses. So my answer is I don't need this. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. This results in exposure shifts and bending of verticals if the camera or subject moves during the readout period. I have a temporary fix for my eyeglass problem until Hasselblad solves the eyeglass issue. My demo Hasselblad X1D arrived along with the XCD 30mm f/3.5 … @deep7You can't handle the facts, so you claim I'm being paid by Fuji - awesome trolling. I had read somewhere that it had been redesigned but so far my first replacement was the same par was the cracked one. Not being really wealthy, but willing to spend a lot of money on my hobby. I really appreciate the candor of the review (as well as the beautiful images). For the majority, photography is something we do because we enjoy it or because we are compelled to it, and GAS is an unavoidable consequence: we must enjoy our tools too, in order to be creative. More info on Hasselblad cameras and lenses can be found here. I have not looked back. On June 19, 2019, Hasselblad announced the X1D II 50C, an evolutionary second edition of the mirrorless medium format X1D 50C.When the original X1D was announced in June 2016, it was … Plus, minimalist handling seems to be very good for you. This is a great camera period. Last spring, like many photographers, I was surprised to see Hasselblad announce the X1D camera. If I wanted to shoot sports, I’d choose another one. Just as your slide projector in the past moving it closer to a wall. What Hasselblad has done was to bring digital medium format to the masses (relatively speak of course) with a camera of reasonable bulk and weight. The Sony A7RIII cannot compete on these terms. On the other hand there is no extension Just use the Cambo Actus for X1D for shift, it is liberating. I had a major GAS event over 2016-2017, and shot quite some of the best cameras … the honest truth in retrospect is that I do not have the skills to exhaust the image quality limits of any of the modern sensors. If you want a camera that is perfect for hi-res stills of stationary or slow moving objects, you'd be as well off with a Sigma DP Quattro camera. No legacy lenses can be adapted? The current situation with Sony sensors is very interesting and id love to get the benefits of the X2D while staying at 50MP, regardless of price. Forgot you add yhst I fully concur with the color output of H6D50c being the most natural and accurate of the competition. and V lenses. but not many Pentax 645D/Z sold? The Hasselblad X1D-50c is the world's first medium format mirrorless camera. Seems kinda like the medium format version of the argument between Leica and Fuji.. except this is two grand more than its competitor, not four grand more. I intend to find out after I actually get a couple of XCD lenses , The 40 distagon (other than the CFE IF) wasn’t honestly that great – so you might find yourself a little disappointed with the edges…. The moon cameras were Hasselblad motorized cameras using Ektachrome film. The irony is that writers who are supposed to highlight the differences between cameras are working so hard here to downplay them. Laowa 15mm F4.5 Shift Lens Review: What is a shift lens, and when is it useful? It's nice to see many of the flaws the camera once had fixed. Or do you know if everyone calculate in 16 bits? Hasselblad X1D.

With the new Pro Display XDR Calibrator and accompanying firmware update, users can now recalibrate their Pro Display XDR monitors. I am a happy camper. By Steve Huff. Well, I look at it two ways – if the tool doesn’t do the job or I feel uncomfortable with it, I won’t use it and there aren’t any images at all. Actually, the HTS requires pretty careful tuning – if you have one that’s causing CA it’s probably off spec and requires recalibration at the factory. DXO Mark scores the Hasselblad at 102, and the Nikon and Sony both at 100. I’m taking a trip next week to Kyoto and want to be safe if it rains. But I guess the market would be ways too small for developing such a product. Take a closer look. I received my X1D for Christmas and really enjoyed it for the week I had it before it went back to Hasselblad for the cracked door hinge issue. Ive been patiently waiting for that zoom lens since I bought my X1D in December. more attractive…. A film Hasselblad is an excellent photographic learning tool - highly recommended!

This ad-free website's biggest source of support is when you use those or any of these links to my personally-approved sources when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. will be the differentiating factor. exposure fusion)? What I really don’t like about it is the ergonomics, feel and menus – it’s like a scaled up X-T2 and isn’t the better for it. I’ve already suggested precisely what you are proposing, but there are some technical challenges to overcome + market sizing…. Moreover, will the X1D eill ever get AF face/eye detection functionality? Handling, Design, IQ.Hasselblad customer service is top notch, firmware releases are constant and adding features. Yes, comparable resolving power at all apertures, but you may prefer the rendering style of one over the other. Workflow 3 supersedes Workflow 2. 2) not so-good depth of field control: yes, there is the DoF button, but Leica S has this implemented in a perfect way, as you see the estimated DoF distances in the top-LCD. Hi Ming, did you have a chance adapting your V lenses to the X1D yet? As many readers know, I am old Hasselblad user. So pour a tall cold one and get ready to treat yourself, 2020 style. The design, look and layout of the X1D is … I find myself more mentally connected with X1D and finally sold my GFX. Transparency is always a balancing act and it’s interesting to read your take on the camera regardless of your ties to Hasselblad. by Jeremy Gray Posted: 06/22/2016. Hasselblad X1D-50c Review: Take the studio wherever you go, Hasselblad X1D II 50C 50MP Medium Format Mirrorless Camera Body, Hasselblad X1D-50c (Body Only) with 3" LCD, Silver (H-3013901), Hasselblad X1D II 50C 50MP Medium Format Mirrorless Camera Body 45mm F/3.5 XCD Lens, Chroma Cameras' 679 camera system turns medium format modular, Review: Monogram Creative Console - a refinement of our favorite modular editing hardware. Would you expect comparable performance at F 8-11 between the the 45mand 50mm Ver 2 for both single frame and stitching applications? My FF is a Canon so you can imagine the complaints I have had in the past with DPR. After an hour with the X1D, I decided to stay with my E-M1. Give credit where credit is due: Pentax has the biggest range of lenses for mid format. On the other hand, it seems built for studio work – wifi tethering, high sync speeds, Nikon TTL support. Not clear to me what it does that smaller mirrorless cameras already offer. My fear, initially, was that your turn to such an expensive line of gear would cause the blog to wither for lack of reader participation. I'd happily buy one of a camera that helped a union employee have a proper pension and paid vacations. The Hasselblad X1D-50c is one of the most beautiful and well-made cameras I have tested to date. In the long run, I’m actually less concerned about the image quality part than ever before – not only have we past the point of sufficiency, but every subsequent sensor generation improves – albeit by smaller and smaller increments. Finally have pulled the trigger and ordered the field kit in black. Some of the design and engineering choices made back then were a consequence of those constraints, but have lead to some complications to implement things later on – one of the reasons why a ‘final’ firmware has been so delayed. However: there’s good news. In addition to the large crop factor, the image quality suffered. This feature is actually vital to the major art project I’ve been working on for several years, and I have been using Nikon equipment (D850), which works well, but is certainly not the quality of medium format Hasselblad. But what’s paramount in these kinds of reports is integrity, and I feel you are having to walk a fine line here. I’m taking more interest than I might normally, since the new mirrorless offerings mean that I could just about afford a medium format camera if I really really wanted one. Like all Hasselblad cameras, sensors used in the X1D are individually profiled to a fixed reference color standard at all ISOs – I shoot the X1D comfortably to ISO 12,800. Secondly, are there any plans to implement eye detection autofocus on the X1D?
