Hasselblad releases 907X, a tiny medium format camera body
Hasselblad are once again selling digital camera backs, with the announcement of the CFV II 50C digital back and brand new (and tiny) 907X camera body.
The CFV II 50C digital back, featuring a medium format 50-megapixel CMOS (43.8 x 32.9 mm) sensor, can be used with most V System cameras made from 1957 onwards.
The original CFV digital back ceased production at about the time the X1D arrived in 2016, with Hasselblad claiming a shortage of the 50 Megapixel sensors as a result of high demand for the new X system.
The updated CFV II 50C features a tilt screen with full touch support, and, unlike the original CFV, there's a fully-integrated battery, the same used on the X System, which will reduce overall size and allows for recharging in-camera via USB-C. The camera will have the same software as in newly announced X1D II 50C.
Coupling the CFV II 50C is Hasselblad’s smallest medium format camera body ever, the 907X, which allows X-series lenses to be mounted on the CFV II 50C back. The beautifully designed body is extremely slim thanks to the short flange distance of X-series lenses, and maintains the timeless Hasselblad aesthetic with a combination of chrome buttons and black finish.
In addition, a vast range of Hasselblad optics can also be attached to the 907X via adapters, including the H System, V System, and XPan Lenses. Planned accessories include a very retro looking Control Grip and External Optical Viewfinder.
No pricing has been announced for the CFV 11 50C or 907X, so for now, you'll just have to keep an eye on the Hasselblad website for more information.
