Swedish camera maker Hasselblad last year launched the X1D-50c, a ground-breaking medium-format mirrorless camera with ergonomic and compact form factor that best suits photographers who need to travel light. The brand has now introduced a new Field Kit includes the X1D base camera, the 30mm f/3.5 lens, the 45mm f/3.5 and the 90mm f/3.2 all packed into a specially tailored Pelican case, providing “robust protection and easily transportable equipment.” The camera body itself offers robust build quality to take on challenging conditions, and the rest of the kit makes it possible to shoot in a variety of conditions. It also includes a spare battery, a hand strap and shoulder strap, USB cable, a blower brush and lens cleaning pen.
The X1D camera, which is available in silver or black, utilizes a 50-megapixel CMOS sensor to capture images and has an extended ISO range of up to 25,600. The rugged pelican case has a custom cut foam insert that protects the camera gear. The kit is priced at $17,495, offering a discount over the individual prices of its contents. The camera and the lenses, if bought separately, cost a total of $18,880, which excludes the price of the case. The Hasselblad X1D-50c Field Kit will begin shipping on the 20th September, and is already available for pre-order.
