Hasselblad X1D

Hasselblad just launched the first Medium Format Mirrorless Digital Camera On their 75th Birthday. Weighting just 725g, this new addition is a game Changer. Hasselblad confirmed that this camera and lenses are not made in the collaboration with Fuji ( I take this with a grain of salt), and mentioned that more products related to the X1D will be introduced in Photokina 2016.

Fuji and Sony are rumoured on working on a medium format mirrorless as well. although no rumours about laughing dates yet, I suppose we can see it in next Photokina 2016. X1D_Lifestyle_DeckX1D_Lifestyle_Sitting
