Packed into the award-winning design of the first generation, the X1D II 50C continues to keep medium format photography portable with its compact build. Its upgraded electronic platform includes an enlarged 3.6-inch touch display and an enhanced EVF, a faster live view refresh rate, and an intuitive and even quicker user interface control. Connection via USB-C or Wi-Fi to Hasselblad’s Phocus Mobile 2 allows for the ultimate, on-the-go workflow from camera to iPad Pro. And with a huge range of high-quality optics to shoot with, including XCD, HC/HCD, XPan and V System Lenses, the creative possibilities are endless.
The X1D II 50C’s updated electronic platform allows for a more responsive camera experience, including faster image previewing, enabling quicker post capture evaluation. In addition, a higher frame rate of 60fps makes live view smoother in both the EVF and the rear display. The much higher resolution of the rear display screen (1024x768) gives a more vivid, true to life image viewing experience. In addition, the X1D II 50C now enables full resolution high quality in-camera JPEG images with Hasselblad’s signature colours. Dual SD card slots, now supporting the faster UHS-II standard, ensure optimal storage space or the option to back up images to a second card when shooting.

Built-in Wi-Fi and USB-C connectivity create a portable photographic workflow with wireless or tethered image export and tethered shooting using Phocus Mobile 2. Tethered shooting is also applicable with Phocus’ desktop version, available for both Mac and PC. An internal GPS module enables optional automatic geotagging of images. Dual SD card slots ensure optimal storage space or the option to back up images to a second card when shooting. The X1D II 50C enables in-camera battery charging via USB through a computer, charger or power bank.
Lightweight and portable, the X1D II 50C lets you take the power of medium format in a footprint smaller than most full frame 35mm cameras. Individually calibrated for optimal performance, its large 50-megapixel medium format CMOS sensor (43.8 x 32.9mm) features outstanding colour depth and a huge dynamic range of 14 stops. Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution technology is integrated into the camera’s system, delivering superb, true-to-life tones that match what the human eye sees. Blending form and function in its ergonomic design adopted from the award-winning first generation, the X1D II 50C continues to provide creatives with incredible Hasselblad image quality, with 16-bit RAW images and now full resolution JPEGs, in a compact, lightweight design.
The X1D II 50C’s brilliant 3.6-inch 2.36-million-dot touch rear display and enhanced 3.69-million-dot OLED EVF are updated with higher resolution, enabling a more accurate post capture evaluation of images. Building upon the previous generation’s intuitive user interface with pinch-to-zoom and swipe image browsing, the X1D II 50C is refined with a quicker overall response when navigating through its menu system.
The X1D II 50C’s deep grip allows for a firm hold, enabling easy and comfortable shooting. Built into the grip is an internal battery slot. Simply clicking it into place, the battery is smoothly ejected by sliding the release catch and then pressing the battery once more.
Adopting the award-winning design of the first generation, the X1D II 50C continues with Hasselblad’s heritage of blending form and function seamlessly for a smooth handling experience. Milled from high-quality, solid aluminum and designed with a clean surface with only the most crucial buttons, all other commands are easily located in the rear touch display. With the shutter built into Hasselblad lenses instead of the camera body, the weight and size of the X1D II 50C is minimized, enabling a very compact form.
Shooting with the X1D II 50C gives access to Hasselblad’s full range of high-quality medium format optics, including the 9 XCD Lenses, 12 HC/HCD Lenses (and Converter H 1.7x) with the XH Adapter in addition to other H System accessories, XPan Lenses via the XPan Adapter, and V System Lenses using the XV Adapter. All XCD and HC/HCD Lenses feature central lens shutters that deliver full flash sync, including up to 1/2000th of a second in all X System Lenses. Crafted from durable metal components, Hasselblad optics are rigorously tested to ensure optimal performance and superb image quality.
