Portraiture existed long before photography was invented. And for more than a dozen years after photography’s invention, it was practically impossible to make a photographic portrait: the required exposure times were too long.

Hasselblad X1D: A Medium Format MVP? - PhotoShelter Blog

The image quality is stunning, but what operational issues did we find while using the Hasselblad X1D in New Zealand, Tokyo and New York? And how does the $6500 price tag compare to other offerings like the Fuji GFX-50s?

In software design, there is a concept called the Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Instead of building a fully fledged app or website that might incorrectly anticipate a user’s need, the MVP model suggests that product designers should start with small set of features and use feedback to iterate quickly towards a more perfect product. It’s supposed to be a faster, cheaper and smarter way to develop a product.
