Phocus IMHO has been improved a good deal in the last few years.

I have no feelings for or against it, though. I just use it because I have had HB cameras. If I had P1, I’d use C1.

The best thing about Phocus is that’s it’s a free download with no paid upgrades. iPad Pro tethering is also pretty slick with the X1DII/CFVII.
I am blown away by the iPad tethering and how well the mobile app works. It's really impressive.

The desktop app (at least the Mac version) is just there.. it works for tethered capture just fine and gets me my files on a monitor and hard disk. Then I just send them to my editing server and work with them in Lightroom and that's the end of Phocus.

I use Phocus 2 for tethering on the iPad Pro, its awesome...i think i found out that low batteries (in camera) can lead to some crashes when shooting high volumes, seems to be a power issue? Either way switching batteries (at about 20%) takes care of it....
I then just import the files directly into LR mobile on the ipad, they are sent to the cloud instantly, works great, i love LR mobile (and PS mobile)....i actually haven’t even worked on my mac in a few weeks.....

I have no experience with the H system to know if this is just tradition or what, but the X system seems to always crap out on low battery power. The X1D is like that too, strange focusing behavior, even an occasional lock-up here and there at low battery power. Pop in a fresh battery, it all goes away. I wonder if this was why they introduced a second generation of batteries for the X system? Doesn't seem to have helped that much.. :)

I'd avoid Hasselblad for one reason. No Capture One support
Phocue is awful
Get it right in camera, Phocus best tethered software on the planet, best curves, and get you best lens corrections and color from H raw files do ur homework!

Hasselblad has lots of issues but Phocus is great! Could it use more refinements ya it’s five to ten years behind in the bells and whistles but for the above it’s the only option.

Still flawed AF bad to fair but other issues plague it.
907x built to order Hasselblad can’t make product without firm orders!

My understanding based on random bits and pieces assembled from various sources is that production of the SE is probably done. Mine is one of 3 currently on listed on eBay US. In another one of the listings, the seller says he received an email from HB stating that production was limited to 720 pieces globally and that they'd soon be all sold out. That listing was listed 2-3 weeks ago.

B&H just sent me an email stating the following for the 907X SE: "We regret to inform you that this item has unfortunately been discontinued." I got a similar email a week or two ago from Adorama, so if you want one, ebay is the way to go for now.

For those of us who want the Chrome (standard) edition, fingers crossed that it will be released soon.

Happy for all of the SE owners!!!! Please keep sending photos from the kit and any insight you want to share. Thank you in advance!

I saw the 720 piece email from the eBay listing as well.. will be curious to see if we ever get confirmation that it's legit. FWIW, my S/N ends in 761.. so depending on where they started there may be some truth to it.
