Hasselblad's X1D proved medium format photography didn't have to live in the studio and now the company has announced the next evolution of the camera with the X1D II 50C. For this generation, the new X1D II is more of a fine-tuning of the original model than a complete overhaul. These tweaks include an upgraded electronics platform that features a higher resolution 3.6" 2.36 million-dot touch display and a higher resolution 3.69 million-dot OLED EVF.
The camera's overall performance and UI also see some refinements with a faster 60fps live view refresh rate, reduced shutter lag and black out time between frames, a faster 2.7 fps continuous shooting rate, high-resolution JPEG support, and a dual SD card slot system that now supports the UHS-II standard for compatibility with high-speed cards. Other features include an all-new graphite finish, menu system access when looking in the EVF, and an all-new mobile app for tethering, full quality image export, and direct camera control via an iPad Pro or 2019 iPad Air.
