Hasselblad Introduces Firmware Update for X1D & H6D Cameras
Hasselblad has announced the 1.21 Firmware Update for their X1D and H6D cameras, demonstrating their commitment to technological innovation with the introduction of new features for both cameras
This most recent firmware update for the X1D and H6D cameras adds to the photographer’s options for creativity, including a new white balance tool, allowing the user to set the colour temperature and tint directly on a photograph at the point of shooting. These values can then be applied to all following images until the setting is switched off again.
New features, unique to the X1D, include an interval timer and exposure bracketing. Using the Interval Timer, photographers can produce time-lapse shots, whilst exposure bracketing gives users options in varied exposure settings, capturing up to 9 frames with customisable sequences of bracketing exposures.
A new highlight for the H6D allows the photographer to create seven customisable profiles. By accessing the general settings menu on the main display, the user can easily navigate to the profiles menu and save the current camera settings to any one of the seven profiles. Having preset settings to the user’s preference, the photographer can swiftly change camera settings without dropping time, and ultimately, a shot.
Firmware updates are available from the My Hasselblad > Downloads section online at Hasselblad.com. Users can update their firmware simply by downloading the “.cim” file to an SD card and selecting Firmware Update from the Service Menu on their camera.
