The Past and the Future of 907x CFVII 50C
The Hasselblad 907X 50C is a modular medium format camera system that combines design features from their vintage film cameras with modern image capabilities from their digital era. The 907X 50C platform is made up of the CFV II 50C digital back and the 907X camera body, which work together to provide a distinct and adaptable camera system.
The 907X is the tiniest medium format camera Hasselblad has ever produced, measuring slightly over an inch thick and weighing just at 7 ounces. This modest camera body, reminiscent of the 500-series V-system cameras, primarily serves as the interface between the V interface of the CFV II 50C digital back and the X-mount for working with XCD lenses or adapted lenses from other mounts.
The CFV II 50C is an updated and enhanced digital back with a vintage V-system interface that may be used with the accompanying 907X as well as nearly any Hasselblad V camera from 1957 to the present. This digital back has been designed with the classic A12 and A16 film backs in mind, and is outfitted with versatile digital capabilities, revolving around a 43.8 x 32.9mm 50MP CMOS sensor, which yields high-resolution imagery with a wide 14-stop dynamic range, 16-bit colour depth, and an ISO 100-25600 sensitivity range.
This sensor, too, employs Hasselblad's Natural Colour Solution, which provides realistic, attractive colour tones for excellent consistency and smooth tonal transitions. The back design also includes a rear 3.2" 2.4m-dot tilting touchscreen LCD to mimic the feeling of working with a waist-level finder, and the rechargeable lithium-ion battery is now housed within for a leaner overall appearance. Furthermore, built-in Wi-Fi enables wireless remote control and file transmission via Phocus Mobile 2.
The 907X is Hasselblad's smallest medium format camera body, distinguished by its amazingly compact, lightweight design, and acts as the unobtrusive link between the V-system interface CFV II 50C digital back and the range of X-system mirrorless lenses. By including an X-system lens mount, the CFV II may be used with autofocus and leaf shutter-enabled XCD lenses, as well as HC, HCD, V, XPan, and other third-party lenses via available adapters. When using XCD lenses, the 907X has more access to wide-angle lens alternatives than the V system.
The CFV II 50C Digital Backpack
Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution with 50MP CMOS Sensor
The CFV II 50C is built around a huge 50MP CMOS sensor that measures 43.8 x 32.9mm and is capable of capturing a very broad dynamic range of up to 14 stops as well as rich 16-bit colour depth. Tonal transitions and skin tones display incredible depth, richness, and clarity when paired with the Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution for lifelike image quality, even in dark shadow and dazzling highlight zones. A sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600 is offered to accommodate working in a variety of lighting settings, and still images are saved in the Hasselblad 3FR raw file format or as JPEGs.
The Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution, which works with the amazing image quality of the 50MP CMOS sensor, is designed to deliver images with the most natural colour without the need to delve into a range of settings. Because of the CFV II's 16-bit colour depth, this device is also capable of producing imagery with very smooth tonal shifts evocative of analogue film capture.
In addition to stunning still photographs, the CFV II 50C can shoot high resolution video at 2.7K (2720 x 1530) and HD (1920 x 1080), employing the full sensor width in a 16:9 ratio. The video is captured at 29,97 fps with an H.264 compressed codec for up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds. An external microphone can be used while shooting video thanks to a 3.5mm mini-phono input connector.
This digital back, which features a V-system interface, can be used with the accompanying 907X camera body, nearly any Hasselblad V system film camera from 1957 or later, or technical and view cameras having a V-system mounting interface.
A touchscreen design is used on the integrated 3.2" 2.4m-dot tilting LCD for intuitive control, menu navigation, and playback. The upgraded screen also has a faster refresh rate of 60 frames per second for more smooth playback, and it allows autofocus point drag and drop placement as well as autofocus point size changes with pinch/spread finger movement. The tilting shape of the screen also supports a top-down viewing position, similar to operating with an optical waist-level finder.
Internally accepts one rechargeable lithium-ion battery to preserve the overall slimline profile reminiscent of A12 and A16 film backs. This battery can also be charged from the back using the USB Type-C connector.
For better read/write rates, the dual SD memory card slots support the UHS-II protocol.
Built-in Wi-Fi allows for wireless file sharing as well as remote camera control.
Phocus Mobile 2 also provides a full tethered shooting experience from an iPad Pro or iPad Air (2019).
The USB 3.0 Type-C connector is useful for file transfers, tethered shooting from an iPad, and charging the in-camera battery via a computer, charger, or power bank.
Designed for use with the XCD line of lenses, which include an integrated central shutter system with sync speeds of up to 1/2000 sec.
Phocus Mobile 2, which is available for select iPad models, allows for the direct import, modification, and rating of raw photographs, as well as the direct import and rating of full-resolution JPEG images. Phocus Mobile 2 also includes full-resolution image export, tethered shooting, and direct camera control.
The desktop version of Phocus supports traditional computer-based tethered shooting.
