The Hasselblad X1D. Another camera to add to my Dream Camera Kit. This is a steal, as Hassleblads go, the X1D body will retail at $8,995 USD. For $13,985 USD you get the X1D body with both the 45mm f/3.5 and the 90mm f/4.5 lens. Both lenses are specific to the X1D. However, a separately sold adapter allows for the use of existing H series lenses. I can understand the sticker shock but believe this will open medium format photography to a larger body of creatives. This camera may be a game changer. What I do wonder is how this will stack up to the Canon 5DSr? Or is there really a comparison here? Let me know your thoughts in the comment section.
Oh, about my dream camera kit – maybe I’ll post the list here instead of hiding it away on a desktop folder.
The video is close to an hour, you can skip over to the 18 minute mark where the presentation begins.
FYI: Hasselblad had matched an accessory Billingham camera bag which fits one camera and one lens.
