If you’re a camera lover and a photography enthusiast, then this might interest you. However, you’ll need a lot of money to satisfy your cravings.
Taken from Engadget … Hasselblad showed off its modular 907X 50C medium-format system, and even sold a limited number in a $7,500 limited edition Moon-Landing kit. Now, the company has announced that the camera system will be sold as a standard model.
It consists of the 907X camera, which is essentially a very slim X1D lens mount with electronics. That marries to the CFV II 50C digital back, with a 50-megapixel sensor, 3.2-inch 2.36 million dot tilting display and capture system. Together with an X1D lens, plus the optional control grip and optical viewfinder, they form a relatively lightweight, very unusual camera system.
The sensor seems to be the same as the one on the X1D II, with 43.8 x 32.9 mm size that’s 67 percent larger than a full-frame sensor. Hasselblad promises 14 stops of dynamic range and 16-bit RAW files that deliver more color information than normal 14-bit RAW images.
This being Hasselblad, this camera system won’t come cheap, but it’s not ludicrously overpriced compared to a $5,500 Fujifilm GFX50S medium format camera, for example. The 970X body with the CFV II 50C back costs $6,400 (£5990 ) on pre-order, with the 907X control grip at $730 (£679) and the optical finder at $499 (£459). The units are scheduled to ship at the end of August.
