Hasselblad X2D coming soon to a divorce near you


Well-known member
The X2D 100c body dimensions as shown in the FCC documents are: Width - 148.44 mm (from outside of strap lug to strap lug) / Height - 105.73 mm (from top of hot-shoe to base) / Depth - 73.42 mm (from front of grip to back of eyecup). The X1D II 50c specifications are: Width - 148 mm / Height - 97 mm / Depth - 70 mm.

If those dimensions are the same in production models, the new camera body is the same width and just a few millimeters deeper (Likely needed to accommodate IBIS). It is taller by about 9 mm which may also be needed for IBIS. Overall, there's not much change in the camera's size.
Kudos to the Hasselblad design and engineering teams that they have apparently been able to preserve the essential design goodness of the X1D body, while incorporating IBIS, a 100MP sensor and (presumably) a much upgraded processor with faster overall responsiveness and AF. I have used an awful lot of cameras over my 50+ years of photographing, and the X1D body and lenses have by far and away the best ergonomics and UI. It remains to be seen how well the overall system in the X2D will work (e.g., there is great Eye AF like Sony's and not so great Eye AF like Fuji's), but I am surprised and impressed. This looks like a well executed collaboration between Hasselblad and DJI. Hmmm. It was only yesterday that the internet was rife with speculation that Hasselblad was being bled to death by DJI just to capitalize on its brand for the DJI drones.


Where will you ordering the new X2D?
I was advised from a friend in Denmark that as soon as its available I should order it from the Hasselblad online store.
I am based in the USA
Any thoughts?

I depends.

+1 for Steve over at Capture Integration.

My previous understanding of the HB store is you may get it faster from them, but last time I ordered from there, they charged the CC 100% up front. Not sure if they do this or not still. Not a big deal if it's shipping soon but if it won't ship for a year you may not want that charge sitting on there.

Somehow they selected the same day as the Apple presentation, not exactly what one will expect, as the press will be inclined to talk about the new iPhone including its photographic novelties. I am hardly enthusiastic, I am prime to be disappointed. The bright side of this is that if they deliver I will be extremely happy.

Whatever it is, it's certain to please some and not others. Hasselblad can't and won't satisfy everyone with the products they produce. That's true of every manufacturer.

As for me, I like having variety and genuine choices with noticeably different designs and feature priorities. Vive la différence!

I think the new lenses, and even their distinct styling, make the most sense if they do NOT have a leaf shutter and the new X2D has a focal plane shutter. The main argument against this possibility is that the new lenses would only be usable in certain situations with the X1D or CFV, but perhaps it's all the more reason for customers to buy an X2D?

Scratch that... given the additional thickness of the X2D over the X1Dii is only 3.4 mm thicker, I'll revise my (highly speculative) prediction to the three new LENSES having a novel type of shutter (perhaps allowing 1/4000s with flash sync), rather than the body :) I just feel there has to be a more compelling distinction for the three new lenses rather than focal length given that the focal length range of the current XCD lens set is pretty good:
120/3.5 macro

New: 38.2.5
and two more lenses... how about a 108/2.5, for a classic portrait focal length equivalent (85 in 35-mm terms)?
and maybe a fixed-aperture zoom for the last one?

It certainly needs to be an idiosyncratic f-stop for any new lens. Easier to google, too ...

Wild guess for the other 2 lenses:
24mm f/4
55mm f/1.9

could also see them adding more zooms though.. 24-35, 75-150, etc

looking forward to the 7th. But mostly for the new Apple Watches tbh 😄
