Press release:

Hasselblad Launches New Flagship Camera and Three All-New Lenses
Introducing the X2D 100C, XCD38V, XCD 55V and XCD 90V

After the groundbreaking success of the X1D-50c and its second iteration, the X1D II 50C, Hasselblad unveils the powerful X2D 100C, along with three new lenses to the XCD family, the XCD 2,5/38V, XCD 2,5/55V, and the XCD 2,5/90V, providing the ultimate experience for content creators. Hasselblad X2D 100C - Inspiration in Every Detail Hasselblad’s next-generation mirrorless medium format digital camera, the X2D 100C, has been engineered to bring substantial technological enhancements to image quality, camera handling, and system responsiveness. Designed in a new dark grey tone body of machined aluminium, the X2D 100C houses a 100-megapixel back-side illuminated (BSI) (43.8 × 32.9 mm) CMOS sensor, delivering up to 15 stops of dynamic range with a 16-bit colour depth. The X2D 100C enables a creative experience unimaginable in the past. It empowers content creators to capture the intricacies of an image’s highlights and shadows, utilising the Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution (HNCS). Working alongside the new 5-axis, 7-stop in-body image stabilisation system (IBIS), handheld image capture is possible in the widest range of conditions. Hasselblad independently developed its own IBIS for the X2D 100C in order to meet the stringent requirements for stabilising a 100MP sensor. Keeping size and weight in mind for easy portability, the X2D 100C is the most compact medium format IBIS solution on the market.1

With 294 Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) zones, the system ensures the subject is rapidly located and brought into focus. The X2D 100C captures files in 3FR RAW and full-size JPEG, and the cutting-edge, built-in 1TB SSD storage and CFexpress Type B card support delivers a high capture rate for fast-moving subjects.

The X2D 100C features an 0.5-inch OLED Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) with 5.76-million dots, a high magnification of 1.00x with a refresh rate of 60fps, which supports electric refractive error correction to ensure the whole display is sharp and bright, from corner to corner.2 A 1.08-inch colour top display and a 2.36MP, 3.6-inch tilting, touch-capable rear display delivers access to all of these new imaging technologies whilst keeping the intuitive Hasselblad User Interface (HUI) and Scandinavian style of the X System. The battery has a CIPA rating of 420 shots and supports PD 3.0 fast charging.3 Additionally, the X2D 100C is compatible with Phocus, Hasselblad’s free image processing software.

“When developing the X2D 100C, our goal was the same as always, just as Victor Hasselblad himself made decades ago: build a better camera,” said Bronius Rudnickas, Hasselblad Marketing Manager. “This commitment drives us to explore the possibility to improve its performance from all aspects.”

¹ Among interchangeable-lens mirrorless digital cameras with a 55mm-diameter CMOS sensor (according to a Hasselblad market survey on 1 March, 2022).
² Magnification: approximately 1.00x with the XCD 65 at infinity, –1 m-1.
³ To charge via PD protocol, the charging cable and power source must be PD-compatible

I’ve been shooting the new Hasselblad X2D for a few weeks now and I’m really excited to share my initial impressions in this video. Hasselblad has finally announced the new X2D as well as three “V serieslenses - a 38mm f/2.5, 55mm f/2.5 and a 90mm f/2.5 - all are considerably lighter and much quieter than the first generation lenses.

The X2D features a new 100MP, BSI sensor with phase detection autofocus. There is a new top level screen, high resolution EVF, tiltable rear touch screen, in-body image stabilization, a built in 1TB SSD drive and other new features discussed in this video.

Hasselblad has just made its most substantial upgrade to their mirrorless medium format cameras yet with the new X2D 100C. Boasting 100 megapixels, an internal terabyte of storage and very effective IBIS, it looks great on paper. To find out how it does in the field, Jordan went out with professional photographer Ryan HK to out where this camera delights, and where it irritates.

Two years ago I first stepped into the world of medium format digital with the Fuji GFX system, and I quickly fell in love with the larger sensor. Ever since I’ve always been curious about the camera models from Hasselblad.  So, when I got the chance recently to spend a few weeks testing their flagship camera, the X2D 100C, I thought, what better way to put it through its paces, than to take off on a multi-day road trip across England. 

*As mentioned in the video, this is sponsored by Hasselblad, but like with everything on this channel, all of the opinions and thoughts are mine with no outside creative control.
