The Hasselblad X1D packs a huge image sensor into a compact camera body.
The X1D sports a 50-megapixel medium format CMOS image sensor (43.8mm x 32.9 ) with 14 stops of dynamic range, 14-bit color and an ISO range of 100-12,800 (expandable to 25,600). It’s housed in a compact, lightweight body that promises to handle more like an advanced compact camera than a bulky medium format body.
