Union, NJ—Hasselblad is bridging its legacy and future with the new XV lens adapter. The adapter is compatible with the Hasselblad X1D-50c mirrorless medium-format camera as well as the range of V system lenses.
With more than 60 lenses providing focal lengths from 30mm to 500mm in the V system, the XV lens adapter represents the expansion of Hasselblad’s X system as well as its compact, digital medium-format camera. The company’s V system of cameras and lenses is linked to the heritage of professional image makers.
Hasselblad XV Lens Adapter Features
The XV lens adapter mounts a V-system lens onto an X-system camera. As a result, now with the XV lens adapter, Hasselblad extends the X1D-50c with the full line of C, CB, CF, CFI, CFE, F as well as FE lenses. Moreover, each lens functions solely with the use of the X1D-50c camera’s electronic shutter feature. The electronic shutter must be used as no lens shutter control is possible.
The compact new adapter joins Hasselblad’s other available lenses as well as accessories for the X system of cameras. Currently, there are five native XCD lenses from 21mm to 120mm. Also available is support for Hasselblad’s HC/HCD and XPan lenses.
In addition, the adapter’s technical specs include: diameter, 84mm; length, 2.5 inches; weight, 8 ounces.
The Hasselblad XV lens adapter has a suggested retail price of $249.
Founded in 1941, Hasselblad is a manufacturer of medium-format cameras and lenses. Hasselblad cameras offer an ergonomic design, image quality and Swedish craftsmanship. Moreover, they have captured some of the world’s most iconic images, including the first landing on the moon.
Hasselblad was the first to launch a fully integrated medium-format camera system incorporating CMOS sensor technology. In 2016 Hasselblad launched the H6D with an all-new electronic platform. Later that year, the company introduced the first compact, mirrorless, digital medium-format camera—the X1D.
