Hasselblad X1D vs. Nikon D800E vs Leica SL vs. Fuji X-pro 2 – Image Size Comparison
Hasselblad X1D vs Nikon D800E
The Hasselblad X1D vs Nikon D800E – If we look at both the camera it is very clear that Hasselblad X1D camera is not bigger than Nikon D800E, but at the same time if you look at the sensor size and dramatically larger lens-mount ring of X1D you can imagine the amount of effort Hasselblad team added to this project to make the system size portable, light weight and compact.
Hasselblad X1D vs Fuji X-Pro2
The difference in sensor size and body size of both the camera does look in proportion ? Fuji need to do some R&D in reducing the body fat of camera body 🙂
Hasselblad X1D vs Leica SL
And finally Leica killer has arrived ? – Both, Leica and Hasselblad strike a very specific market of pro-photographers with pocket full of cash. But I think a large number of Leica users including Steve Huff will going to try hands on X1D. The Hasselblad X1D is a perfect machine with High quality Sony MF sensor inside it, that will sure going to surpass the performance of Leica fullframe mirrorless cameras.
Today Hasselblad finally revealed its X1D mirrorless camera today, the camera features 50 Megapixel Medium format sensor and ISO range upto 25600. The camera also features dust and weather resistant body and instead of announcing new flash range they made Hotshoe compatible with the existing Nikon flashes / Speedlights.
Two new lenses also announced with the system, 45mm F3.5 and 90mm F4.5 and more lenses are coming shortly , we expect a bunch of new lenses is coming at Photokina 2016. All the existing Hasselblad lenses are usable with the help of a external adapter.
