This year the Swedish masters from Hasselblad are celebrating 75 years of innovation and excellence at the forefront of the photography world. That’s why they’ve decided to launch a special range of products, called ‘4116’, with new cameras and a few brand collaborations specially designed to mark this unique anniversary.
One of the most impressive products bearing the ‘4116’ label is the new Hasselblad X1D 50C 4116 edition, an incredible medium format, mirrorless digital camera, fused with cutting edge technology and featuring an ergonomic and compact design that’s both practical and stylish.
Tipping the sales at just 725 g, less than half the weight of a standard medium format camera, this special X1D offers a unique handling experience, complemented by outstanding capabilities.
Hasselblad has somehow managed to squeeze a huge 50 megapixel sensor into this tiny body, plus useful functions like HD video functionality, wi-fi, dual card slots and built-in GPS. The X1D has been launched a few months ago, and it already received a lot of praise, but this 4116 edition takes the whole picture to the next level, representing a stylish evolution of medium format mirrorless perfection.
The X1D 50C 4116 is an all-black stunner, featuring an ‘XCD’ 45 mm lensbody, an elegant leather hand strap, plus extended warranty. The camera will arrive in a unique 75th anniversary ‘4116 edition’ box, and will be priced at a cool $12,995 or €10,900. That’s a bit more than a Leica 50 mm f/0.9, one of the most expensive camera lenses out there.
