Hasselblad Launches 907X Special Edition to Celebrate 50 Years on The Moon
Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing, Hasselblad today launched the limited 907X Special Edition, which includes the 907X camera body and CFV II 50C digital back, both in matte black with commemorative “On the Moon Since 1969” anniversary text. Hasselblad’s smallest medium format camera body ever weighing in at only 206g, the 907X is extremely thin, lightweight and built to smoothly combine with the CFV II 50C, creating a highly compact photographic package. Connecting the 907X with the CFV II 50C enables shooting with a wide range of Hasselblad optics, including all XCD Lenses and all HC/HCD, V System and XPan Lenses via adapters.
The CFV II 50C digital back features a brilliant 50-megapixel CMOS medium format sensor, individually calibrated for excellent performance, with outstanding colour depth, a huge dynamic range of 14 stops and the ability to capture full size in-camera JPEG images. The CFV II 50C digital back can be paired with most Hasselblad V System cameras made from 1957 and onwards in addition to technical cameras, making it easy to combine analog and digital shooting. The CFV II 50C’s modern tilt screen features an intuitive touch interface with swipe and pinch-to-zoom options when image browsing. A high frame rate of 60fps enables a smooth live view through the digital display.
The CFV II 50C celebrates Hasselblad’s design-centric heritage with its timeless look featuring a similar form factor as the original V System film magazines, but in matte black like the HEC that made it back Earth. Coupling the digital back with Hasselblad’s smallest medium format camera body ever, the 907X, creates a very sleek, compact package. Combining modern technology with classic aesthetics reminiscent of the Hasselblad SWC camera, the CFV II 50C and 907X give a nod to Hasselblad’s history combined with its renowned image quality.
