Hasselblad X1D II 50 C

Hasselblad X1D II 50 C is a Medium Format mirrorless camera from Hasselblad X system. Even though it is packed with a medium format sensor, it is ultra-compact and portable. Not having a focal plane shutter inside the camera body has been a major reason for Hasselblad X1D II 50 C to look this much slim. Hasselblad lenses are coming with shutters built into them instead. The premium looking minimalist body is made with Aluminium.
