What’s Changed? The Hasselblad X2D 100C Medium Format Mirrorless has a few substantial improvements over its predecessor, including a new, higher-performance 100MP BSI CMOS sensor; a faster, more powerful processor; an all-new image-stabilization system; updated displays; and an enhanced OLED electronic viewfinder.
100MP BSI CMOS Sensor. The new 100MP BSI CMOS sensor gives the X2D 100C an extremely wide 15-stop dynamic range, while its back-illuminated design ensures low-noise performance. The sensor features 16-bit color depth that delivers up to 281 trillion colors, and it works in tandem with Hasselblad’s Natural Color Solution system to produce lifelike, detailed skin tones and tonal transitions. Its sensitivity ranges all the way from ISO 64 up to 25,600.
Fast, Accurate Phase-Detection Autofocus. According to Hasselblad, the newly designed phase-detection autofocus system uses 294 points that cover 97% of the sensor to facilitate fast, highly accurate performance with the push of a button. On top of that, an updated electronic platform gives you a speedy 3.4 fps continuous shooting rate to capture fast-moving subjects in busy environments.
In-Body Image Stabilization. The X2D 100C’s five-axis seven-stop in-body image-stabilization system compensates for five different types of camera shake when you’re shooting stills, and it substantially reduces motion blur at slower shutter speeds.
Built-In 1 TB SSD. This camera includes a built-in 1 TB SSD with a 2370 MB/s write speed, which lets you store roughly 4600 RAW photos or 13,800 JPEGs. There’s also a CFexpress Type B card slot with a 512 GB capacity in case you need even more storage, and the X2D’s high-speed storage capabilities let you shoot 16-bit RAW images over a sustained time period in Continuous Drive Mode.
Improved Displays and Viewfinder. Among the X2D 100C’s myriad improvements over its predecessor are two upgraded displays and an enhanced OLED EVF. The 3.6-inch, 2.36m-dot tilting rear touchscreen has firm stops at 40° and 70° to the body and is great for image composition and low-angle shooting. A full-color top display gives you a fast, clear way to check your shutter, aperture, and ISO settings while you’re shooting without having to refer to the rear touchscreen. The improved 5.76m-dot OLED EVF offers 1.0x magnification, boasts a new electronic diopter-adjustment function, and increases contrast when you’re shooting in direct sunlight and low light to give you the clearest, sharpest view possible.
Compact, Lightweight Build. Despite its larger-than-life imaging capabilities, the X2D 100C keeps a svelte figure, weighing in at just under 2 lbs. Since this camera is meant to be travel-friendly, it’s optimized for use with the Hasselblad XCD lens system. Finally, weather and dust sealing keeps you shooting in all sorts of hostile environments.
Other Notable Features. The X2D 100C uses a standard Nikon hot shoe adapter with support for Nikon SB Speedlight flashes and Profoto A1, B1, and B2 flashes for Nikon, and can flash sync down to 1/4000 of a second. It has a USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C connector that’s great for file transfer; tethered shooting; and in-camera battery charging via computer, charger, or power bank. Built-in Wi-Fi allows for file sharing and remote shooting using the Hasselblad Phocus Mobile 2 iOS app.
This camera does NOT include a separate battery charger, it charges the battery in-camera with the supplied USB C cable and power adapter. If you'd like to rent a separate dual battery charger, please check it out here.
