Hasselblad has announced a ground-breaking new camera called the X1D, which is the world's first compact mirrorless medium format camera. A medium format sensor is typically much larger than a full-frame sensor which lets you capture way more detail and much better dynamic range. To be able to use this in a compact form-factor of a mirrorless camera is quite an achievement.

 As you would have guessed, the X1D doesn't come cheap as you'll be forking out around $8,995 (approximately Rs. 6,11,900) for just the body, without taxes. Two new XCD lenses were also announced for the camera which will retail at $2,295 (approximately Rs. 1,56,000) for the 45mm f/3.5 and $2695 (approximately Rs. 1,83,400) for the 90mm f/3.2. You can order one from these locations in India.

The X1D is handmade in Sweden and boasts of a 50-megapixel CMOS sensor and an ISO range of 100-25600. The camera weighs 725 grams and features Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac, built-in GPS, full-HD video recording, stereo microphone, mini-HDMI and is completely weather-proof. The X1D offers a 3-inch touchscreen with a 920K-dot resolution along with an electronic viewfinder with a 2.36M-dot resolution.   

Commenting on the announcement Perry Oosting, Hasselblad CEO said, "The X1D marks a pivotal point in Hasselblad's rich 75-year history. This camera makes medium format photography available to a new generation of Hasselblad users, while pushing the existing limits of photography to new heights."
