Expanded Hasselblad X2D 100C Key Features:
Building off from the award-winning X1D, Hasselblad have outdone themselves with the X2D 100C. It features a Back-Side Illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor that reduces noise, eliminates colour casts when moving the camera and improves quantum efficiency of incoming signal-higher sensitivity. This BSI sensor can take massive 100MP stills with a 15-stop dynamic range and ISO range of 64 up to 25600.
Photographers needing superior colour accuracy can rely on the Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution (HNCS), which delivers highly accurate, natural colours without the need to fiddle around with pre-sets. The camera’s 16-bit colour depth ensures smoother tonal transitions and film-like image quality.
Always capture sharp images with accurate focusing thanks to Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) and In-Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS). The X2D 100C has 896 PDAF points in the sensor that are grouped into 294 zones for fast and accurate focusing. It allows MF to accurately display which way to turn for focus, whilst the PDAF pixels can determine which way to drive the lens. PDAF also supports single-shot autofocus and assisted manual focus.
The IBIS featured in this camera is an in-house designed unit so it reaches the high specification required by Hasselblad. It is the world’s smallest digital MF 5-axis 7-stop IBIS unit, which fits well into the compact but capable build of this medium format camera. To provide shake-free images, the IBIS unit is capable of vertical and horizontal shift, yaw, roll and pitch. The IBIS unit also works with lenses outside of Hasselblad's XCD range.
Adaptable Viewing Options

The improved EVF has a 0.5-inch OLED display with a 5.76 million dot resolution and 24-bit colour. It shows the whole image with a 100% viewing area, has 1.0x magnification and even has electric refractive error correction so you’ll always get a clear image.
The back of the camera sports a 3.6-inch tilting rear display with a resolution of 1024x768 pixels and 24-bit colour. It has a tilt range of 0-70 degrees and click stops at 40° and 70°. This camera also features a new 1.08-inch LCD colour display on the shoulder of the camera for quickly reviewing vital information. It can display shooting parameters, frames remaining and battery levels.
Instantly share your images, and even capture images, to mobile devices and laptops. The camera itself has dual-band 2.4/5Ghz Wi-Fi and is capable of Wi-Fi 6 connections. For wired connectivity, the camera body has a USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 port that supports 10Gbps transmission rates. As well as the internal 1TB SSD storage, photographers can also shoot and share on CFexpress Type-B Cards.
