Hasselblad has unveiled its new X1D II 50C Camera, CFV II 50C digital back and 907X camera body.
The Hasselblad X1D II 50C maintains the 43.8 x 32.9mm 50MP CMOS sensor from the Mark I model and offers a larger 3.6″ touchscreen LCD. It also features a higher resolution enhanced OLED EVF with 3.69-million dots and a 0.87x magnification. “The X1D II 50C’s live view features a faster refresh rate, reduced shutter lag and black out time between frames, an improved continuous capture rate, and a startup time cut almost in half from the first generation.”

Randall Dalton says
Any first thoughts on the Mk II at this point? Any idea how the cut the price eomdrastically?
Eric Reagan says
I think Fuji has a lot of momentum and really forced their hand on the price. Looks like a solid option in the $5k range for a medium format camera now.
