Hasselblad’s new XV Lens Adapter Opens up Medium Format Mirrorless Photography Possibilities

Simon Skinner - 10 months ago

Hasselblad has just announced the new XV Lens Adapter, bridging the gap between its photographic legacy and future products, offering compatibility with the X1D-50c mirrorless medium format camera to the broad range of V System lenses

The heritage of Hasselblad’s V System cameras and lenses are closely connected to a great history of pro image makers. With the arrival of the new XV Lens Adapter, suddenly the Hasselblad X1D-50c is opened up for use with the full line of C, CB, CF, CFI, CFE, F and FE lenses; each lens functions solely with the use of the X1D-50c’s electronic shutter feature.

With over sixty lenses with focal lengths from 30 to 500mm in the V System, the XV Lens Adapter represents the expansion of the X System and capabilities of Hasselblad’s compact digital medium format camera.

Pricing and availability

The new XV Lens Adapter is available now for £179 [SRP ex VAT]. See more HERE
