Union, NJ—Introduced as a concept in June 2019, the Hasselblad 907X 50C is now available for purchase. The mirrorless medium–format digital camera is comprised of the modernized CFV II 50C digital back and the brand–new 907X camera body; it thus connects Hasselblad’s photographic legacy and future in one system.
With a medium–format, 50-megapixel CMOS sensor (43.8×32.9mm), the CFV II 50C digital back works with most V system cameras made from 1957 and on. It’s also compatible with third–party technical or view cameras. The CFV II 50C also features a 3.2-inch, 2.4M–dot tilting rear display with full touch support and Hasselblad’s user interface for settings, image review and also menu navigation. The interface offers swipe and pinch touch controls.
Moreover, users of previous CFV digital backs will appreciate the new fully integrated battery design. The same used on the X system, it reduces the overall size and adds the option to recharge in-camera via the USB-C port. With a chrome edge body finish in addition to modern technology, the CFV II 50C gives a nod to Hasselblad’s imaging history.
Coupling the CFV II 50C with the 907X, Hasselblad’s smallest medium–format interchangeable-lens camera ever, creates a compact package. It also enables the classic waist-level shooting style of the V system, via the CFV II 50C’s tilt screen.
