Compact Design

By opting for a mirrorless design, Hasselblad was able to take their 50MP CMOS sensor and pack it into a footprint smaller than most full frame 35mm cameras. For the very first time, photographers have a camera that is no larger than a small format rangefinder. The deep and comfortable handgrip beautifully complements the slender body, creating a camera like no other.


The X1D’s high-resolution rear LCD offers touch control for all aspects of the camera’s features. The icon-based user interface speeds access to customisation options along with intuitive playback functions such as swipe and pinch to zoom. The camera also boasts an XGA electronic viewfinder for bright, crisp viewing even under difficult lighting conditions.

New Lens Range

To enhance the entirely new camera design, a new range of autofocus lenses specifically engineered to match the high resolution capability of the X1D. The new XCD lenses deliver edge-to-edge sharpness in a compact form to elegantly match the slim build of the body. Existing H System users also have the flexibility to use their lenses with the X1D by means of an optional adapter.


Every H System camera, lens, or component is designed, developed and produced to the most exacting standards and precise specifications. Every camera body is constructed using solid stainless steel housings and a high-strength aluminum for the inner core, guaranteeing both reliable and durable performance, whether in the studio or in the field. The result is a lightweight, compact design that is ideal for hand-held photography, without sacrificing the sturdiness and quality needed for professional, tripod-bound shooting.

H System cameras provide peak performance for both film and digital capture. With film, H cameras produce distinctly better results than 35 mm or competing medium format systems. And the sensors used in H System backs are approximately twice the size possible with 35 mm digital SLRs, featuring more pixels than 35 mm digital systems and providing better resolution and clarity. The pixels in H System backs are also larger, which means less noise in your images and better dynamic range with clearly improved detail. Hasselblad digital backs on H cameras also allow the exploitation of powerful features such as IAA, DAC, HB RGB and 3F RAW that lift the combination above and beyond the norm and well into the leading position of medium format digital photography.
