The 100MP CFV 100C back can be used with existing Hasselblad V-series bodies or with the 907X camera and XCD lenses.
Hasselblad has announced a 100MP version of its CFV digital camera back, which combines with the 907x camera to create the smallest medium format camera on the market.
The CFV 100C back contains most of the camera functions, meaning the 907x is almost an adaptor plate with a shutter release button. It natively accepts Hasselblad’s XCD lenses, designed to match the CFV’s 44 x 33mm sensor, but can also accept adaptors to mount HC/HCD lenses, V-series lenses or XPan lenses.
The CFV 100C is built around the same BSI CMOS sensor as the X1D 100C, which Hasselblad claims delivers 15 stops of dynamic range. The chip features on-sensor phase detection and offers face detection autofocus. It has 1TB of built-in storage and accepts CFexpress Type B memory cards. It has a tilting 3.2″, 2.36M dot touchscreen and can be used with a new hotshoe adapter that allows TTL flash metering when used with Nikon-compatible flashes.
Like the closely related X2D 100C, the CFV 100C has an ISO range of 64 up to 25,600 and captures 16-bit Raw files (which Hasselblad wants to market as capturing trillions of colors). It can also shoot 10-bit HEIF files.
The tiny 907X ‘camera’, seen here between the CFX 100C back and the XCD /38 lens, allows the creation of a small medium format combination that echoes the style of the cameras on which Hasselblad’s reputation was founded.
When combined with the 907x camera and XCD lenses, the CFV 100C delivers a compact, autofocus medium format camera styled after Hasselblad’s classic 6×6 film cameras (now know as the V Series). This gives access to a 14-strong lens lineup that extends from the 16mm equiv XCD 4/21 up to the 105mm equiv XCD 2.8/135, all of which use in-lens leaf shutters capable of speeds up to 1/4000 sec with flash sync at any shutter speed. The CFV 100C with 907X camera weighs just 620g (21.9oz) without a battery or memory card (roughly 780g / 27.5oz with a battery).
The CFV back uses the standard Hasselblad magazine mount, so can also be used with the majority of other Hasselblad bodies, including 500 and 200-series manual focus cameras (though not SWC fixed-lens wideangle cameras). Its use of the 44 x 33mm medium format standard means there’ll be a 1.27x crop, relative to 645 film or a 1.21x crop, relative to the larger 53.5 x 40mm digital medium format sensors Hasselblad previously used in its H6D-100c camera.
The Hasselblad CFV 100C will be available with the 907x for a recommended price of $8199 or €7799 in Europe.
HASSELBLAD UNVEILS THE 907X & CFV 100C
ENHANCING MEDIUM FORMAT PHOTOGRAPHY WITH VERSATILITY & UNMATCHED IMAGE QUALITY
Hasselblad, a pioneer in medium format photography, introduces the 907X & CFV 100C, a fusion of modular design and advanced technologies that offer three distinctly different photographic abilities, presenting the most compatible Hasselblad 100-megapixel medium format camera to date. Building on its iconic design, the 907X & CFV 100C has been upgraded with a new 100-megapixel back-illuminated sensor, doubling the resolution of its predecessor, the 907X & CFV II 50C.
A MODULAR DESIGN. THREE APPLICATIONS.
THE 907X CAMERA BODY
The 907X & CFV 100C combine to create the smallest and most powerful medium format camera in the industry. This dynamic combination is compatible with all XCD, HC/HCD, and Xpan lenses, uniting high optical lenses to produce the best image straight out of the camera.
HASSELBLAD V SYSTEM FILM CAMERAS
The CFV 100C breathes new life into Hasselblad V System cameras, such as the 500 and 200 series. Photographers can use their beloved film camera with the powerful CFV 100C sensor to produce the same picture quality of the digital age while also providing the unique experience of shooting at waist level. The CFV 100C keeps a classic timeless in every sense of the word.
With the CFV 100C, technical film cameras will reap the benefits of its 100-megapixel sensor, helping photographers, museums, or institutions meet rigorous and precise photographic needs. The 3.2-inch touchscreen display and 2.36 million resolution, with its superior flexibility and colour richness, provide photographers with an easy-to-use experience and a cost-effective digital solution for a technical camera.
UNIQUE DESIGN AND ICONIC HERITAGE
The 907X & CFV 100C provide users with the unique experience of capturing images at waist level. Its classic design, waist-level viewfinder, leather-like coverage, and chrome frame are tailored for individuals who seek to showcase their unique taste and appreciation of vintage aesthetics. The viewfinder can be tilted upward from 40 to 90 degrees to provide photographers with a range of perspectives.
UNPARALLELED IMAGE QUALITY, LIFE LIKE AND TRUE TO COLOUR
The CFV 100C, combined with the Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution (HNCS), ensures colours are captured with unparalleled accuracy, reproducing scenes just as the human eye perceives them. Photographers can capture their subjects with true and natural colour presentation in both JPG or RAW format. With a 16-bit colour depth, the CFV 100C presents approximately 281 trillion colours, providing photographers with an extensive palette for capturing the full visual spectrum. The CFV 100C introduces an ISO sensitivity as low as 64, producing image quality that is delicate, pure, and rich in lifelike details. With an impressive 15-stop dynamic range for preserving rich light and dark details, the CFV 100C ensures a smooth and natural transition in every image, allowing photographers to push creative boundaries.
ADVANCED AUTOFOCUS AND FACE DETECTION
The 907X & CFV 100C introduce users to its Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) with 294 zones spread over the 100-megapixel sensor surface. Covering an impressive 97% of the focus range, this advanced autofocus technology ensures every shot is sharp and precisely focused. Its face detection capabilities make capturing portraits easier in various locations.
BUILT-IN STORAGE SYSTEM
The CFV 100C boasts a remarkable 1TB of built-in storage space, marking it as the first modular camera with built-in storage capabilities. The 1TB of built-in storage space allows users to store up to 4600 RAW images directly on the camera. This exciting new feature eliminates photographers’ concerns about running out of storage during crucial moments or not being able to locate a memory card.
REDUCED WEIGHT AND COMPACT SIZE
The 907X & CFV 100C weighs 120g less than the 907X & CFV 50C, making it lightest, smallest and high-resolution medium format camera in the industry. The reduction in weight enhances comfort during extended shoots, minimizing fatigue and contributing to improved stability for handheld photography.
WHERE TO GET IT
The Hasselblad 907X & CFV 100C has an MSRP of USD $8,199. It is now available to order online. See details of the new product at www.hasselblad.com.
